Stu Nicholls - CSS Play I've used ideas from Stu Nicholls' CSS Play site, which I heartily recommend, including the design of the menu system. I added gradient images made with Free online tool- Gradient Image Maker from Dynamic Drive.

The footer solution I've used is based on the CSS Sticky Footer solution from aXemedia.

Speaking of footers, you'll have noticed the validation logos in the footer on every page of the website: I've found the validation services from W3C to be a great help in ensuring that the site meets xhtml standards and the code behaves as expected. If you are developing a site I recommend using these compliance tools: despite throwing up a lot of errors in what appears to be a perfectly functional web-page they will save you time and effort in the long run.

DropboxThe storage and file-sharing tool Dropbox has been invaluable in preparation for each dinner and for preparing materials for each resources page (and you can get 2Gb of storage free as well).

I've had a lot of help and inspiration for the design from many sources but I found the Design Depot section on contrast particularly useful.

Throughout the development of the site I have had help, advice and testing from many Thinkers, sponsors and others. Special thanks is however due to Duncan Tincello for endless technical and design consultations.
