Web Design

The short of it is that I'm too busy working for a software company to do it anymore.  I have, however, recently updated the look of my web site - still with an emphasis on simplicity and maintainability - which I tried to make more consistent.  Also took out a lot of links to old sites I designed that didn't make sense, since others have redesigned them or they have gone out of business.  In fact, I got so busy doing installers, help systems, and other special projects at work that I ended up relinquishing the redesign of the company web site to someone else, although I still do some maintenance on it --  www.galorath.com

Here are a few web jokes:

For one site I created a large number of fleur de lys icons in a large variety of colors (obsessive-compulsive behavior).  Someone from the Society for Creative Anachronism was especially interested in them.

Web Resources

Some links pulled off my former web links page.  These might be useful to beginners, although I doubt that people are creating web pages in WordPad or Notepad as I was when I began creating them in 1995.
