Construction Credits

The site was designed and originally constructed in 1998 on an Apple Power Macintosh 8100/110 computer. It was HTML-coded using BBEdit Lite, then the free-ware verson of the text editor from Bare Bones Software, Inc. Original graphic elements were made with Adobe Illustrator 6.0.2. Since early 2012 all active pages have been rebuilt from tables-based HTML to current web standards — HTML5 and CSS3-based coding — using Coda (by Panic) and TextWrangler (Bare Bones's current free-ware text editor) on an Apple MacBookPro (2.5Ghz QuadCore i7). Visitors using recent-vintage browsers will experience most of the modern improvements; visitors using older versions of Internet Explorer will see a simpler version. Visitors viewing on iOS (mobile) devices should find the rebuilt site performs as expected.

The site is designed and constructed by:
