Practice area.

I will be adding some content here when I have learned what I am to write!! Off to bed now! (Comment.gif: You can practice adding an image, re-sizing it, adding external and internal links, adding bold, color, italics to the fonts, and adding main and sub headings for a start. I hope that helped a bit. --Nellie Deutsch 06:24, 26 August 2009 (UTC) )

Thanks for moving my sandbox link to its rightful place!

Tip collection

My project?

Yes, I am still deciding what topic to do. It depends on how good I become at writing mathematical symbols etc, but it will be something mathematical.

I haven't worked out how to insert images. I've just tried and it didn't work! I put in the set of numbers that appears under the photo in the picture gallery.jpg but it didn't seem to work.

(Comment.gif: Please watch the following video and let me know if it helps. If not, we'll try something else. --Nellie Deutsch 11:34, 27 August 2009 (UTC))
Many thanks Nellie. Very helpful and your help was given with stunning speed! I have a question though. Why is it that my default colour on this page now seems to be green? How is the default colour changed? I've worked it out! Shane used green and didn't close if off. I have now.

I see you found the solution. Yes, you need to close the font color or any other font feature you use. Here is a nice page for colors if you are interested in accessing color codes quickly. --Nellie Deutsch 11:42, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about that.... but the mistake turned into a learning experience :-)

Thanks for that Nellie, I'll have a play.

Enjoy!Here is a toy I'm enjoying. --Nellie Deutsch 12:15, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

But I can write in italics
And can write things in bold
And I can combine the two!

But I am mystified as to why these three lines all appear as one since I have them on separate lines here??? Oh well, by putting in a second space I can separate them, but things still catch me out.

Here's one way... use the line break tags like i've done, or simply click on the Icon which looks like the Return key.
Hope this helps Shane Nychy B.Sc. 03:21, 28 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Shane. Yes, I'd overlooked using those line breaks.

And did you notice my horizontal line?

This was a difficult day as

  • we had our much loved puss put to sleep
  • I didn't get enough done while at work today
  • I had to attend a meeting at lunch time and didn't get my much enjoyed brisk walk to the Botanic Gardens which keeps me sane in my sedentary job. The gardens are beautiful, and I've only been able to get there once this week!!

Three little maths problems


  1. x2 + 5x + 6
  2. x2 - 7x - 18
  3. 25x2 - 16

I want to link this page to my new one which I have called maths
I will now take you to The Correspondence School Home page as this is where I work.

I have been trying to get this smaller but putting in 40px here etc doesn't seem to be having any effect. Aaah, it was the word frame included. Have now got rid of that!
