Site Down

As I write this around 11:30 a.m. PDT, my site is unaccessible. The reason why I write this now and have not reported these occurrences in awhile is that I'm trying to upload a new Resources page with the font used in the latest set. I discovered my error of omission earlier this morning and am trying to correct it. So I will wait. Perhaps later today whatever problem that's causing this downtime will be corrected.

I will no longer report these downtimes because they're usually so short in duration.

Two New Desktop Wallpapers!

Forgotten and quietly awaiting their debut are "Supernova in the Large Magellanic Cloud" and "Liquidamber in Autumn," two new desktop wallpapers that I had finished some time ago, I think. "Supernova..." comes in four sizes and will most likely be the last of the space-themed wallpapers that I'll issue. The image comes from my usual source, GRIN. "Liquidamber..." comes in three sizes and is a photo of a young liquidamber tree in my parents' back yard. At first I thought it was a Japanese maple tree but upon closer inspection, it looks more like the leaves on the mature liquidamber tree I have in my front yard.

Enjoy these wallpapers!

Supernova in the Large Magellanic Cloud is on the Wallpapers 2 page.

Liquidamber in Autumn is on the Wallpapers 4 page.

New Interface Set!

At last! I was able to finish this set I started in July and wanted to release then but didn't get around to it. This latest set uses a navigational interface graphic. Primarily neon green on a black background, it looks totally out of this world with the swirling lights. The image was photographed by "ppdigital" (Darren Hester) and uploaded to the free digital stock photo site, Morguefile.

Copyright to this image remains with "ppdigital" even if it is changed from the original full photo. All pieces of this set are invisibly watermarked. The visible watermarks on the sample page graphics are not on the graphics in the zip file. I have not enclosed the html page in the zip file. But if you need to view how the graphics are set up, you can "View Page Source" or "View Source." Then you can copy-and-paste the html for the page onto Notepad or similar or your web page editor. If you do that, please, please, please delete all of my text including the copyright notice and the Sitemeter script at the bottom of the page before you even put a line of text or photos for your own web pages.

This set is free of charge for personal or non-profit web sites/ users but commercial or professional web sites/ users and web designers/ developers need to pay a user fee via Kagi, my payment processor. While the set is zipped for your convenience, if you cannot open zipped files with WinZip, PKZip, Stuffit Expander or similar I can send the pieces by e-mail. Just e-mail your request using the form on the Contact page or e-mail your request directly using the address on the same page.

Visitor Number 11000!

While the hubby and I were away on vacation, visitor 11000 stopped by on the 15th. This visitor had JavaScript disabled so I'm unable to tell how long he/ she stayed and where he/ she went other than to the first desktop wallpapers page. Visitor 11K is from Clarkston, Michigan, and uses a computer with MS XP and IE 6.

On another note, it looks like I probably won't have enough time to complete the set I promised. Been so busy after coming back home from vacation, it's like I never left! Maybe I'll make it, maybe I won't. We'll see...

New Summery Wallpaper!

I'm getting psyched for vacation! Here's a desktop wallpaper featuring footprints strolling across sand.

This wallpaper was made with Paint Shop Pro 7 and tubes. Comes in three sizes; choose the one that fits your screen resolution best. All free!

Remember, these aren't for web pages as
they are each one huge graphic and will load exceedingly slow for any user not on a high-speed internet connection. You don't want to lose any visitor and create a bad rep for yourself and your site. Desktop only!

Check out the thumbnail and download here.
