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.

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.
