WiFi Foundation Closes Down

HTL have long since supported the WiFi Foundation as a commercial sponsor. Unfortunately the commercial reality of the relationship is not viable as an on-going concern and despite several years of successful funding the management of HTL have today decided to withdraw their funding at the end of the fiscal year. The WiFi Foundation system will close down and cease operations on 31st March.

If you are a commercial business that has a series of WiFi Hotspots we would like to discuss with you how you might be able to implement your own private network, using equipment from Airtight Networks or Cisco.  You can read more about our WiFi Solutions here.

If you requirement is a smaller scale such as a standalone restaurant or bar we would recommend calling James Dale of Purple WiFi on 0161 870 0191.

HTL is happy to support Ethereum

Ethereum

Many people have heard of Bitcoin, but for the last few months the virtual currency world has become gradually obsessed with Ethereum, the Bitcoin V2.

Imagine a smart currency that can not only act as a token of ownership, but can also determine who the current owner should be based on the outcome of a contract or any particular set of circumstances being met. Take it further and there are possibilities of joint savings accounts, financial exchange markets, or trust funds. Conceptualise further and theoretically automated corporations can trade Ether to make profit without the intervention of humans. That might all be a bit ‘Skynet’ for some, but whichever way you look at this this is very exciting technology with the ability to disrupt conventional capitalistic structures, and something that we at HTL are fervidly interested in.

Responsive Web Design

Introduction

As new technologies are being developed, new trends come along to meet the demands. In the website design industry, we try to adapt with the new trends to make every design fit in the devices and technologies being used today by the consumers.

Today, websites need to be appealing not only in desktops but also in tablets and mobile phones. Rather than designing multiple sites for different devices, front-end web designers use Responsive Website Design (RWD). This technology uses Media Queries allowing content to adapt to different screen resolutions. To demonstrate this technology, try resizing the browser of this website. The contents and images fluidly adjust along with the smaller display.

Responsive web design is recommended by Google, it allows one website to provide a great user-experience across many devices and screen sizes.
