About me

Hi there. My name is Gary Pritchard, and I provide tailored ICT training, website management and consultancy services from my North Kent base in southern England.

Details of the services I provide can be found in the relevant sections below, but in summary: I deliver training on the use of Microsoft Windows computers, Microsoft Office applications and website management for both businesses and individuals, from absolute beginner to advanced. In addition, I design, develop & manage websites for a range of small business clients as well as provide ICT consultancy and advice for small business.

For information on pricing and availability, please contact me using the form at the bottom of this page.

ICT training

I provide a range of training courses, designed to meet the needs of each individual client, on the following subjects:

  • Microsoft Windows
  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Social Media
  • Website publishing
  • Writing for the web
  • Managing files on your PC
  • Delivering effective presentations

Sessions can last from half a day to several days, depending on need. All course content is tailored and fully agreed with the client before delivery.

In addition to training delivery, I am also able to offer a training needs assessment to determine actual training need for individuals or groups of people.

Website management

I do not actively promote my web design and hosting services as I am currently concentrating on a project to develop a range of web properties in a variety of niche markets.

However, if you are interested in developing a web presence, I can:

  • Update the design of your existing website
  • Design a new standards compliant website
  • Obtain site domain names
  • Provide a hosting solution
  • Provide a range of other services including ongoing site maintenance and search engine optimisation

Current System Status

E-Mail Delivery to BT and Yahoo

14:04 17/02/2017

Identified - We are seeing that a number of rejections to BT and Yahoo are being caused by badly formed SPF records. If you are having issues sending to addresses with BT and Yahoo from our systems we recommend using the following SPF:-

v=spf1 exists:%{i}.mta.spf.extendcp.co.uk exists:%{i}.web.spf.extendcp.co.uk -all

If you need any assistance in updating this our support team will be happy to help.

09:39 20/02/2017

We are currently having adverse performance on these servers.

Upon investigating the causes we've taken the decision to migrate a number of the packages on these clusters over to a new database server.

We expect to have it back to normal operation soon, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Update - 21/02/2017 - 13:00

Our System Administration Team is continuing to work on improving performance on these servers. While this work is ongoing there may be some periods of slowness accessing some sites.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused as a result of this.

Mail 114 - Abnormal server performance

11:21 17/02/2017

Performance on this server has improved, we are still monitoring this and will continue to do so over the weekend to ensure stability.

This status page will be kept up to date with the latest information on this server.

Update - 21/02/2017 - 13:00

Work is ongoing to improve performance and stability, our System Administration Team are working on this but there may still be some degraded performance at this time.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused as a result of this problem.

Update - 21/02/2017 - 15:25

Currently, users will not be able to login to mailboxes hosted on this server. This is intentional whilst work is being carried out on the server - it will not impact the receiving of emails.

Update - 21/02/2017 - 17:15

Users are currently unable to login to Mailboxes on this server while work is being carried out by our System Administration Team. There is a large mail queue on this server and it is still accepting messages for delivery which should be available once logins are restored.

Planned System Maintenance

There is currently no planned maintenance.

Consultancy

I am able to advise small business on their use and implementation of their ICT systems.
