<p align="center">HOTEL MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS FUTURES.</p>
<P> These are my scattered thoughts on part of the development, hopefull if i get time i will refine this to form part of the document<br>
Some of the notes appearing below have not been implemented, it's my hope that will get some people from the community out there to assist.
</p>

<P>To try out the system <h2>Username: demo, Passowrd: demo</h2><br>
You will realize that the menu behaves rather eratically appears on some pages and disappear on some pages.<br>
Until i start saving sessions in tables sorry you will have to know the page you need to visit by replacing the index.php with the relevant page.<br>
e.g <h3>guests.php, agents.php, bookings.php, billings.php, reservation.php, lookup.php, rates.php, rooms.php</h3><br>
<b>Please login to have some fun, do send me your suggestions and ways of improving it before i release it for downloads</b>
