(Brenton) Not as yet, I'll jump on this evening and get back to everyone. (Laura) Well do we have to use the google one? Because there's a really good website creator called weebly that I've use before and it's free and very easy to use. I'll have a look at this one when I get home though (Andrew) That sounds better, I have no idea what I'm doing... (Brenton) I'll flick Dave wood a message if someone hasn't already? To ask if we can use "weebly" (Laura) http://team3projectmanagement.weebly.com/ o heres an example one on weebly I just spent 15 minutes on o if you want to have a play around with it the login is team3utas@gmail.com and password is project3 (Brenton) i emailed him so see what happens. I'm playing on google sites atm, see what andrew means. (Laura) Yeah I had a look at the google one but it just looks so much harder to use. Log on to weebly and have a play around with the example one I just did (Brenton) righto will do Facebook Group Feed 06/08/13 (Brenton) Hey guys, if anyone has a soldering iron could you bring it tomorrow morning?

(Peter) Sure I can bring the soldering iron etc. Do we need other tools? (Andrew) I can bring screwdrivers as we sorely missed them last week if necessary? (Brenton) Yeah I reckon, any tools that you guys think would be relevant.
