King’s Birthday – Nov 5th

Sawasdee Khrap

Well tomorrow is the King’s Birthday and a National Holiday here – actually it’s called Father’s Day and we will go to Lampang to celebrate with Tasanai’s family.

We’re taking a computer system over to give to the family and the kids can use it for school work. Tasanai’s brother, Thanon Chai’s birthday is Jan 2 so this will serve as Father’s Day, Christmas, and Thanon Chai’s present. Hope it will help him with school – he’s studying PhotoShop right now and being able to practice at home should really give him some extra help. They don’t have a lot of computers at school – so the kids can use it to study at home – I hope to see them having good grades.

Just adding the finishing touches to the Store and Gallery, didn’t think it would take this much typing – have to add a small description to every image in the Gallerys and especially for the artist products being shown. I have just started testing it on PayPal to make sure that the credit card part is working OK and then I will set up the Form-Mail for contact purposes. I’m still planning on the end of the month as the latest – sorry I won’t be able to get it done before the Christmas buying rush – bummer – but for next year we should have a tried and tested system and several new great artist and their works available. I am just putting in a short description for all the images now – but will continue to add to it as time goes by.

Anyway, just wanted to post where we are at – And the San Mateo number is active now  650-227-2913 and will accept voice messages.    see you soon at the STORE

Ciao

Frank & Tasanai.

UpDate on store software

I have settled on using ZenCart as the shopping cart software for the store – but I am waiting for my Hosting Service to make the newest version a standard and available for one-click installment and upgrades. That they say will happen within a week so I will wait and have them install the newest version. Doing that will make sure that I am setup for upgrades when they have been checked out by the Hosting Service.

Once I get the latest software installed I will bring it on line without a full face change to make sure it is working correctly – I will have all our products listed and available for purchase through PayPal – that will be the only payment gateway for a while – later I will bring on line the other cards – Visa, MasteCharge, etc.

Without any other problems I should have the whole thing up and running for the Christmas season. Fingers crossed.
