    Hmmmm.... that black background doesn't look cool... looks like some cracking/warez/porn site... (he he he just kidding man! dont take it seriously) ... but anyways, nice effory...

    But then, having a homepage is not all that necassary... Just a mailing list for your users group would suffice.... All you have to do is share information

    Just for everyone's information:
    Recipie for a Successful GNU/Linux Users Group. -- posted by Fredrick Noronha on Bombay LUG...

    1. You need a Web page.
    2. Your Web page needs a reasonable URL.
    3. You need a regular meeting location.
    4. You need a regular meeting time.
    5. You need to avoid meeting-time conflicts.
    6. You need to make sure that meetings /happen/ as advertised, without fail.
    7. You need a core of several Linux enthusiasts.
    8. Your core volunteers need out-of-band methods of communication.
    9. You need to get on the main lists of LUGs, and keep your entries
    accurate.
    10. You must have login access to maintain your Web pages, as needed.
    11. Design your Web page to be forgiving of deferred maintenance.
    12. Always include the day of the week, when you cite event dates.
    13. Place time-sensitive and key information prominently near the top
    of your main Web page.
    14. Include maps and directions to your events.
    15. Emphasise on your main page that your meeting will be free of
    charge and open to the public (if it is).
    16. You'll want to include an RSVP "mailto" hyperlink, on some events.
    17. Use referral pages.
    18. Make sure every page has a revision date and maintainer link.
    19. Check all links, at intervals.
    20. You may want to consider establishing a LUG mailing list.
    21. You don't need to be in the Internet Service Provider business.
    22. Don't go into any other business, either.
    23. Walk the walk.

    It's painfully grotesque to see so-called Linux user groups mailing
    out announcements using MS-Outlook, Eudora, or Netscape Messenger
    for MS-Windows (or MacOS), or other proprietary mailers for legacy
    operating systems -- and visibly maintaining their Web sites using
    MS Front Page, Adobe Page Mill, or other junkware -- /and/ hosting
    their LUG mailing lists on eGroups / Yahoo Groups. Fortunately,
    these groups are in the minority, but they convey the message of
    Linux being suitable in neither desktop nor server roles.

    Don't volunteer to look like losers in public: As the saying goes, a LUG
    needs to "eat its own dog food".

    Hi khin007
    I see u r a new user but did you forget to read the digit rules???
    Your avatar is well a bit out of size. It is told by digit moderators that the avatar should not exceed the limit of 90x90 u see..
    And you cannot advertise your website in digit forums.

    the images for your website are hosted on geocities and that gives a image not found error. so all i see is a place holder for your images... you better get a dedicated hosting dude :shock:
