|After about 2 months
of content write up and spending 2 more on translating, the site was
complete. In total, only about 1 month was spent for assembling the
site since small amounts were done whilst write up/translating took
place. Amongst our group, there is certainly a combined sense of achievement,
not just because we finally completed our goal, but because of the
things we learnt on the way (the fact that four brains work more efficiently
than one and eight hands work faster than two).
One major fact we realised was that a website actually takes more
time and effort than what you might imagine (Don't be fooled by
the simple outlook). The one thing we are most pleased about with
the website would be that we really proved some people wrong and
others right. Reality is nothing like the fairytales, where everyone
goes 'give it your best shot, you can do it'. There were definitely
some lovely people who were like that (thank goodness), but equally
as many who doubted us from the very first minute. To these people,
we want you to challenge life more (it doesn't matter where you
live) and learn that you can only achieve what you think you can.
Our hope for 'Forensic Science' is that it will provide viewers
with information that will allow them to make informed decisions
about the issues concerning forensic science and not base their
judgments on TV. By completing this site, viewers should hopefully
gain a good general knowledge of forensics and where technology
of the 21st century is taking us.
