Finally come to a decision that Geominster would be better reborn. It has been a long journey but a new Layout has been planned and now the time has come to dismantle and recycle as many items as possible for the new journey.
Thanks for all your help and support and I will be starting another thread shortly.

Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Thanks for the update, George. I have enjoyed watching your progress with Geominster but I am sure that your new layout will be even better with all that you have learned. I look forward to watching your progress with the new layout.

I admire your decision, George, especially after all the work you put into Geominster, but am sure the next one will be even better.

Very much looking forward to following progress with the new layout.
Good luck with it.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Best of luck with your new layout George, I have done the same so I know what it is like to make the decision to start again. Hope like me you have learned from your mistakes.

Thanks Chris, a very hard decision to make but I believe I have learnt from my mistakes and will create a layout to be proud of, it was almost a relief to make the decision to start again.

Better  :D

Hi Maurits a few too many issues previously that have taught me to avoid.

Take a look at the link below, in my signature I have put a pdf plan there.
