When Rich and Ceri started Optik, 401 started as an in-joke between them, because they felt that starting the business was a
big huge undertaking, and understandably they were a little unsure what lay ahead.
In web development circles, a HTTP response of 401, tells your browser that you are "Not Authorised" to view the resource / page.
Since then, we have used the 401 number sequence in a number of places, and it seemed like a novel opportunity to use it again to release our blog posts at 4:01 AM or PM.
Before you sign up to our newsletter, we would like to tell you what you will receive from us ...
We will send you a newsletter a maximum of once each month, around the beginning of the month. The only exception to this is when there is breaking news in the Web Design / Development industry and then only if it is likely to affect how the general public would interact with your website.
We will NEVER send you unsubstantiated news, or rumour. All the news we will include in our newsletters will be Optik Web Creative news or upcoming industry news or commentary. All news will have come from reliable sources or directly from the company concerned.
