Websites / Web Content Management Systems

Contact Graeme Ritchie / Kim Ritchie

Redstone Websites run by Graeme and Kim specialise in building bespoke easy to use Web Content Management systems. If your business needs a new or modernised website or mobile app please get in touch. A portfolio of examples of our work can be seen here.

For EOSM club members, here's a little flying freebee from Redstone Websites - the EOSM Weather Stopwatch. Get rid of that old-fashioned stopwatch stuck to your panel and use this app for free. Once installed, it'll work offline on any smartphone or tablet or even a laptop and will give you a stopwatch, a note of the local time and Zulu time, your track and groundspeed and your position relative to East Fortune (take the guesswork out of that inbound radio call!) and, while you have a network connection, a live feed from the EOSM weather station, updated once a minute. It will run happliy in landscape or portrait mode to suit your particular panel.

No need to visit the App Stores. To install the app on your phone/tablet simply point its browser at https://redstone-websites.com/stopwatch. Make sure you allow permission to location services when prompted. Add the page to your phone's homescreen so that it runs in fullscreen and behaves like an app.

A couple of hints for in-flight use:

  • You'll need the phone's screen to "stay on" and not time out after a minute or so. On Android we recommend the free "Keep Screen On" app, available at the Google Play Store. On iOS you'll need to adjust your display settings.
  • Keeping the screen on in a cold environment will drain a phone battery quickly. It is strongly recommended to have your device connected to a power source when using the app.

Architecture

Contact Richard Murphy

I run an architect's practice www.richardmurphyarchitects.com as most club members know (if only from the Christmas Party drinks!). Currently we would probably not do a project under about £100,000, although there are always exceptions!! I can't really offer anyone a discount as such but I can certainly come along to have a look at the property and give some advice for the price of a pint even if we don't take it on ourselves as a job. And if the project is too small for our office, I can certainly recommend some excellent younger architects who would do a good job. And finally, if anyone wants to see what we are cooking up for Colin McKinnon at Strathaven airfield then go to our webpage on his project: http://www.richardmurphyarchitects.com/House at Strathaven Airfield

Absent Friends Band and Leonard Scunnered Ceilidh Band

Contact Ian Forrest on 0131 669 8108, mob. 0775 477 2206 or email forresti@blueyonder.co.uk Please tell me you're an EOSMC member when calling.

Our 'big' band Absent Friends, is a 4 piece consisting of lead guitar/vocals, electric keyboards with split bass and vocals, fiddle/mandolin/whistle/electric guitar/vocals and drums/vocals with Scottish Ceilidh dance calling. We do a range of rock covers along with Irish, Scottish, country, pop, standards, ballroom and also ceilidh stuff.

We've played all the major castles, hotels etc. around Central Scotland as well as appearing in Biddy Mulligan's Pub in the Grassmarket every Sunday and regularly in Finnegan's Wake in Edinburgh too. We've done Outdoor Ceilidhs in Three Sisters at Festival time in the Cowgate. Info. and samples of 'stuff' can be found on www.myspace.com/absentfriendsscotland.

The 'wee band' Leonard Scunnered is as above but without the lead singer/guitarist. It tends to be mostly ceilidh music along with teaching the dances where required. Not deadly seriously, more to make the event good fun. Again, we've played most known places (and some obscure) including T in the Park Ceilidh Tent and St. Andrews Society Balls in Vietnam, Trinidad and Houston, Texas. I also teach ceilidh dancing to Edinburgh schools, even two in New Zealand.
