New Stuff!

Phew! Finally made my deadline for uploading new graphics.

First, I've got a new header web page set for you. Created using a fantastic closeup photo of an orangy flower (I don't know my flowers well) by Ariadna at Comes with the header graphic, a blank one and a pre-printed one with "Welcome" on it, three different background tiles and my matching link button. Pretty minimal, graphics-wise, but that's how the header sets are. And there are two slightly similar desktop wallpapers to match the web set! I've got the brighter one on my desktop right now -- made it before I even thought about creating the web set or the wallpapers for you. But I liked the photo so much I just had to make something from it for you.

Plus three space-themed desktop wallpapers in three sizes: 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864 that are not like any of the others I've made for you.

Check these all out!

The whole site change will have to come a little later this year; hopefully before the middle of next month, otherwise we'll be into autumn already. Can you believe it?

Finally, I accidentally uploaded a new-old page that had links going nowhere. I've fixed it so that it works now. Oops! I'll be able to upload that new page again after I've completed the other pages that page links to.

Site Down Again

7/28/2005 Here we go again. At approximately 4:55 a.m. PDT my site was down due to network problems at the datacenter where my server is located. My site was back up about two-and-a-half to three hours later. I hope the problem at the datacenter is resolved to prevent re-occurrence.

Site Down Times

It looks like, after a week or so of continuous uptime, there was an unscheduled outage on Monday for anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour. Then again this morning for about an hour. Both instances happened around the same time in the a.m. PDT. I don't know what to make of it as I didn't get a notice about my server being down.

Anyway, it's up now.

New Link Buttons

Just uploaded new link buttons in two-color combinations. Now you have more to choose from to link back to my web site.

As always though, you can choose to use a text link instead.
