Conflict Resolution

So, over Christmas, I decided to play around with Bootstrap a bit. For those who don’t know, it’s a collection of CSS and JavaScript designed to make templating websites easier. I had something of a goal in mind: a website for Conflict Resolution.

Conflict Resolution is the company we set up to run No Rest for the Wicked (and other LARPs). I’d registered the domain name when we decided on the company name, but until recently, it just pointed at the No Rest website. Now, it still does (kind of), but I’ve set it up as it’s own site.

It’s actually nothing too impressive. I played around with some of the template suggestions from Bootstrap, found a style on Bootswatch I liked (Yeti) and combined the two until I had something I liked. The harder bit was getting the content right.

I’m quite happy with how it all turned out – now I just need to revamp the No Rest site to match…

And we’re back

Not that I expect anyone to have noticed the absence.

For the first time, I’m now in control of my web hosting. Following a disagreement with my previous web hosts QiQ, I’ve secured a VPS service for my own hosting needs.

It may take me a while to get everything sorted out, but it feels quite good to be able to set things up how I want them – without having to faff around with htaccess scripts that never worked properly.

That said, if you want cheap web hosting, QiQ is a good host to be with. They just weren’t the right fit for me any more.
