February: we had 100% uptime.
January hosting statistics: we had 0.05% downtime during January. Have done better, have done worse.
Comfy Computing Limited is a family firm based in Leeds, offering a comprehensive web design service, technical internet facilities and help with PC's, both tuition and advice on hardware problems..
We place a lot of emphasis on keeping things simple and doing without jargon or technical terms whenever possible. We don't underestimate our clients' intelligence but we don't expect them to have an in depth understanding of computers. Our name was very carefully chosen.
A story: in the early days of internet access (before broadband) one of our first clients had a floppy disk marked "Easy set up" (or probably e-ze set up) On running the disk the first question was "Do you have a fixed or a dynamic IP address?"
We won't ask questions like that.
If you think we might be speaking on a similar level, have a look round and give us a ring.

On 26 May 2012, the Office of the Information Commissioner (ICO) has stated that they will begin enforcing the requirements of EEC binding legislation about cookies. Anyone who has a website will have to decide what to do:
I am not a lawyer, so my take on the position at the moment is to interpret the guidance as stating, as far as it can, that these particular regulations need to be borne in mind but will be enforced in a proportionate and (can this be a legal concept?) with commonsense.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW
If you are a full client of Comfy Computing Ltd you will receive a personal e-mail before the 26th May 2012 setting out the position with regard to your website and this legislation. Some clients have more than one website and will accordingly get more than one e-mail.
If you employ a web designer, I recommend you contact them and ask for details of any cookies employed on your site.
I hope this helps.
All of my clients are charming and intelligent, and most of them are happy to let me deal with technical matters on their behalf: hence "Comfy Computing."
Some clients, however like to make use of the technical services I provide such as web hosting, self administered e-mail, control panel access, mailing lists and so forth.Additionally some design their own websites, or use content management systems such as Joomla, WordPress,or Concrete5 for example.
I have set up a mailing list for such people and their staff and technical advisers to keep them informed of any technical changes which may affect them. It's not an attempt to advertise, merely a way of keeping clients and associates advised of changes and improvements in facilities.
To conform with best practices, this is an opt-in list. Once you have asked to be added to the list by clicking on the link below, you will get an e-mail asking you to verify the request, and you will then be signed up. If you are unclear about whether you should sign up just give me a ring or send an e-mail. You have my assurance that
- Membership data will not be disclosed to anyone.
- Mailings will be only very occasional (at this juncture I would guess less than once a month)
- The mailings will be devoid of frills and gimmicks and technical accoutrements
When you follow the link below you will have an option to go for HTML or plain Text e-mails. I recommend the former but it's up to you.
