This is where the news will go

From 1st November, all the news concerning Finchley N3 and N12 will go here, on the main page.

You should click on one of the links on the far right if you want to stay informed on a day to day basis. Ignore the RSS feeds if you don’t understand what they mean, and just click the Email sign me up button.

We don’t envisage more than half a dozen posts here each month, with all the main features going on the features page (above right) at the end of each month, so the short emails won’t be a bother and will include a link straight to the page.

Keep entering your events in the form on the Finchley Arrow’s website in the normal way and these will also be posted in the Events Page (above right).

We hope you will appreciate the new system and the fact that we can get the news to you much faster from now on.

Are you a Drupal user?

You can skip this if you haven’t a clue what Drupal means!

I am looking for someone to meet at a local coffee bar or pub to sit down with me and explain exactly what Drupal is. I know WordPress.com is based on it but know little else. Drinks, of course, are on me!

I need direction, where to go for further information – the best book to buy (I can only afford one) a low cost course fo beginners, whether the software is only to go on the web, or whether I need part of it as a backend on my desktop. Will I need a server at my end of the broadband. Things like this.

If you don’t know yourself and know a computer expert, perhaps you could lass on this request?
