All you could possibly want to know about me but were afraid to ask
Who are you?
I’m Dave Thorp… it says that at the top of the site. Duh!
Where are you?
In front of my Mac… which is in Preston, Lancashire at present
What do you do?
I’m a student photographer who is also self employed offering cheap professional photography services
Are you single?
So who are you with?
Been with my Partner, Yvonne, since December 2005. We have two children together and have lived together since June 2006. She wants us to get married but I keep trying to find new and unusual ways to put her off!
What’s your phone number?
How dumb do you think I am? I post that in a public place and suddenly I’m inundated with people called George calling me from my bank about some monies
Are you on facebook?
Why yes I am. If you want to subscribe to my ramblings then you can do so here
Are you on Twitter?
Yes I am thanks for asking. I’m @davejthorp and if you follow me, not only will you get further words of wisdom from me but also will be alerted to new posts on this site as well. Groovy!
Do you have any other websites
Why yes I do. I have a photoblog which also doubles as the website for my photography business over at Dave Thorp Photography. I also run and maintain The Strictly Spoiler which posts Strictly Come Dancing spoilers and news. That content originally started on this site but has since expanded to its own domain following a boom in traffic in 2014.
Why does the menu for this site display strangely in Internet Explorer
Because you are using Internet Explorer! Please try the site in a superior browser like Firefox , Chrome or Safari or if you must continue using IE click the broken page icon in the address bar and reload the page. This should fix this issue!
This question is from a few years ago and I’m now mainly on OS X so have no idea if this is still an issue or if Microsoft have fixed their browser.
I am interested in advertising on your site
All adverts on this site are provided through amazon, google or tradedoubler. You should therefore approach those sites if you are interested in having your adverts hosted on this (or indeed many other) website(s)
Cookies are nice biscuit based snacks. They are also nice things that allow you to stay logged into sites, ensure any advertising you see is relevant to you and can even track purchases on shopping sites which allow you to earn cashback on sites like Quidco and Topcashback. However some people including the EU have privacy concerns about cookies for some strange reason and as a result some stupid EU directive has been passed that most sites have implemented in a way that impairs the user experience for anyone who couldn’t give a rats arse about cookies. So instead I’m posting the following statement about cookies on this site
Cookies may also be used for the commenting system particularly if you comment through your social networking account although chances are if you use those sites you will have a ton of cookies from them anyway (especially Facebook)
If you are really concerned about cookies you can either turn them completely off in your browser preferences however this is not advisable unless you like logging in every time you visit a website which requires you to log in and like breaking most of the internet. Alternatively you can use the Do Not Track feature that most modern browsers now have. You can find details about this feature in your browser’s documentation.
