First, I would like to thank Hockey.net, which provides me a place to co-locate my server. They have very reasonable rates, first class service, and are willing to let users do interesting things.
Second, I would like to thank my web former hosting service. I used www.webgoddess.net. Webgodess which is owned and operated by Irene Hartfield. She provides hosting and design services. She didn't design these pages since these are simply personal in nature and her interest is primarily commercial. That and the fact that this just a hobby for me and I don't want to pay the big bucks.
This web site is made possible by OpenSource software. The web server is running courtesy of Apache, MySQL, Perl, and a variety of GNU utilities all on top of Linux. OpenSource software allows a user to view, distribute and modify the source code. The software is free thanks in large part to generousity of programmers around the world who contributed both code and a different vision of how computing should work.
The overall site design came from a free pagekit available at <elated>. They have fantastic free buttons, and ready to build page kits. I think their sense of design is fantastic. They should be commended for giving something to the internet community and for doing some great marketing.
I used to use a great navigational bar from the Humble Bee. That particular nav bar doesn't fit into the new design but I was so impressed with their free graphics that I would still like to give them a little plug. You can even look at my old pages with the nav bar if you want.
This is the web's handicapped accessible symbol.There are folks who surf the web who may have difficulty seeing, hearing, or even moving a mouse. This symbol is meant to denote that a web site is accessible to folks with those types of impairments.There are design guidelines that every web designer should be aware of when creating a web page. I attempted to follow some of these guidelines in the design of this site.
"Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.",Thomas Jefferson to Charles Yancey, 1816.
"The liberty of speaking and writing guards our other liberties.", Thomas Jefferson to Address 1808.
The liberty to publish is dear to all citizens of the United States. The internet brings that liberty to all citizens of the world. Let us all work together to ensure electronic freedom in the 21st Century.
