Professionals Working Together … Nice!

Build in Brisbane   Brisbane trade networkBuild in Brisbane   Brisbane trade network (Mobile)The Build in Brisbane network is a group of QLD businesses who have actively worked together in one way or another for several years. Each member has been personally invited by other businesses that they regularly deal with.

DNS for a Local Mail with External Website

I am always forgetting the settings for DNS of a domain where you want ot host the mail but send all web traffic to an external server or provider.

So here it is … in the permanent record along with my notes:

abc.com. IN MX 0 mail.abc.com.
abc.com. IN A XX.XX.XX.XXX ( the external server's IP )
mail IN A YY.YY.YY.YYY ( local server's IP)
www IN CNAME abc.com.

Actually I usually have to also make the 'mail' line:
mail.abc.com. IN A YY.YY.YY.YYY ( local server's IP)

SO there you have it.


Biodegradable Nappies

Little Shoppers is an online ECO baby store with amazing organic, biodegradable bamboo nappies, wipes, clothes and more. The nappies are highly absorbent, absorbing up to three times its weight in water. They are naturally hypoallergenic and ideal for sensitive skin. Bamboo fibre is naturally smooth and round without chemical treatment, meaning there are no sharp spurs or harsh chemicals which may irritate the skin.

But a huge plus is the fact that the fabric can be 100% biodegraded in soil by microorganisms and sunlight. The decomposition process does not cause any pollution in the environment. Make the right choice, choose bamboo nappies.

Brisbane Pool Builder

Inground swimming pool builders Brisbane - Swimming pool designers, swimming pool design, swi (1)After recently completing a major renovation on an older home by building a new level below the existing home, we are now considering a pool. Its a big commitment and expense and its crucial to get the pool right or it could actually decrease the value of the home.

Where to start? We are fairly certain of the type of pool we want, but we aren’t sure if its build-able or whether it will comply with the latest rules and regulations. Overall we need the advice of professionals. Our first port of call was to google the rules … these are state based so we started with QLD.

Then we started looking for reputable pool builders in Brisbane. Its tough because there are so many. We wanted one with the appropriate licences and memberships to cover insurance etc.

We decided in the end to try Malibu Pools. The have been a round for a long time and that means a lot to me as well as clearly displayed examples on the website. Check them out 🙂
