Thanet District Council’s Forward Plan just published

There are various web pages that relate to this the easiest to follow being here http://tdc-mg-dmz.thanet.gov.uk/Published/C00000151/P00000126/$$$Plan.doc.htm as it’s in HTML so is viewable on any old computer.

Bit of egg on face for TDCIT there though as the document is titled WEALDEN DISTRICT COUNCIL, let me explain.

If you have limited IT abilities and unsuitable web publishing software, (I should point out here if you have the right software that has been properly configured you don’t need any special skills to publish to the internet,) you can cheat by using someone else’s skills.

So if say you have to produce a document for the internet that has columns images etc and you don’t know how to produce one, you find a similar document elsewhere on the internet, right click on it and click on view source.

Behold the HTML appears, all you have to do then is to change the text in it for the text you want to publish and then put the amended source document on your web server, leaving HTML coding that you don’t understand well alone.

If the engineer who tells you this cheat has a wicked sense of humour he may omit to mention that near the top of the page is the title and the tags for the search engines that you also need to change, or you will be caught out by anyone with the most rudimentary knowledge of computing.

Anyway I digress back to the forward plan, links to all of the forward plan documents may be found here. http://tdc-mg-dmz.thanet.gov.uk/Published/C00000151/P00000126/$$$Plan.doc.htm

The title of this page is, forward plan and the tags for a search engine are Council & Democracy
so a search engine looking at it wouldn’t know it had anything to do with TDC, probably as well really.

Update they have changed the title of the page to Thanet District Council Forward Plan
, still no keywords.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
