WebSites made using Livecode.

Hi Seen,

I'm talking about using Livecode server.
I think you mean Livecode HTML5.

I'll explore that option (it seems very usefully too), but although I do 
a lot of work with JS, I wanted to try Livecode Server. I have used it a 
bit and it looks very reliable.

We have four dedicated servers on a hosting company, so I installed a 
Livecode server on them.

I'll tell you my impressions on a couple of months.


The Southlands are a wonderful place, but Scotland is too.
I spend some time traveling across them.
There is good beer in both places. ;-)
