  • Site Launch: FireMapper
    This past week and today the finishing touches were put on: Space Instruments’ website– FireMapper.com. The site design was done by Benecke Creative, and I did the underlying html, CSS and JavaScript. It’s got some nifty stuff on it.

  • Lines & Grauman’s & Unintended Consequences

  • Note to self:
    Note to self: ImageGIF (and all related GIF functions) are not supported by pair Network’s php installation. It used to, but not anymore. It’s UNISYS’ fault. I’d burn all GIFs but it’s such a handy format. *heavy heavy sigh*
