Only a fool would suggest introducing their partner to any of the CUK weirdos.

I wanted to introduce my partner to you at Chester Zoo - I did not realize you were a weirdo. And I thought you were so nice.

Wife and kids are at Chester Zoo today - baby bp inflicts it on the rest of us at least once a week.

If I was coming over I'd be flying over lunchtimeish anyway, so more of an early tea grub club.

Thanks to the miracle of Google StreetView, and the remarkable way they managed to get a car in there, you can see exactly where to go :nerd

The pub is on Cornhill; as you can see, the entrance is on the right (your right) of the building:

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ll=51.513396,-0.085106&spn=0.001185,0.002741&t=m&z=19&layer=c&cbll=51.513301,-0.085209&panoid=Ba9OGs6J-XRMKFMKmgWCtg&cbp=12,150.73,,0,-16.01

Entering the pub, you will see that it has an island bar, in the middle of the room:

Go around the bar, not forgetting to stop for a drink as you pass. We shall take the route to the right, but you can also go to the left if there are fewer people in the way on that side:

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ll=51.513226,-0.085195&spn=0.001185,0.002741&t=m&z=19&layer=c&cbll=51.513202,-0.085191&panoid=9AJKtihF12FUiLIWYCXN_A&cbp=12,145.8,,0,1.5

Once past the bar, you will see a door at the back leading to a staircase:

and that is where we shall be :)

There'll be a bit of paper on or over the door with "CUK" printed on it in big letters, for the avoidance of doubt. If you get lost and find a room with a sign saying "Honourable Company of Whelkmongers" or "Vampire Squid Alumni", it's the wrong room. Go back to the beginning and start again.

If I buy them 'pick up from store' will you deliver to the Counting House?


Edit: I still think your favicon looks like a willy.

Lol, given the orderId, I imagine you're still at the stage where every online order results in Mrs eek doing a dance round the living room singing "We've got an order!" :laugh

In my mind, that sounds like the best stage, the early excitement before it turns into a 'job'.

It depends - in a previous life I skinned a shopping site for the launch of i-mode (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I-mode) in the UK. We took two orders. One turned out to be from someone at O2 testing it all worked correctly.

Well excluding test orders we are above that.

To be honest the website is there just to facilitate orders at the moment. I've not promoted it at all bar the footer on the bottom and I need to utterly redo it over Christmas.

As we really are only trying things out at the moment to see what works and what doesn't its going far better than I expected. While the selection boxes are doing well, the surprise is how often people look at the chocolates and then buy chocolate stirrers (half the price of Lakeland and Hotel Chocolat) or bars of chocolate instead (although thats based on the local church / craft fairs we've done over winter rather than the farmers markets we are still trying to get in to).

Makes it appear to be more likely to be a busy business, if all orders are 10000, 20000, 30000 you get the same problem as 1,2,3!

AUTO_INCREMENT= sets the starting value of the column. It still increments by 1 each time.

Nope. Far too old and mature for stuff like that (remember I said that everything is a learning experiment at the moment).

As for music I think we can safely say chocolate to the stars as featured and recommended on http://static.bbci.co.uk/radio/663/1.33/img/logos/tier_one/bbc_6music.png
