Site Development Toolbox

Hardware Used

This Web site was created entirely on a variety of Apple Macintosh computers running Systems 8, 9 and OS X. Images were digitized with a UMAX PowerLook II flatbed scanner.

Graphic Design

Most graphical content for this site was created, edited, and optimized using nearly the full suite of Adobe software, including Acrobat Distiller, Dimensions, Illustrator, ImageReady, PageMaker, Photoshop, Premier, and Streamline. Additional graphic and multimedia work was done with Apple QuickTime Pro and Macromedia Flash. Some server-side functionality is managed by Macromedia ColdFusion.

Layout and Programming

Designs were roughed out in Macromedia Dreamweaver. However, once the final layout of the main templates was determined, the entire site was lovingly coded and optimized by hand using the BBEdit text editor from Bare Bones Software. It has been cast as error-free HTML 4.01 Transitional using level-2 Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in compliance with Web standards set by the W3 Consortium.


This site is hosted by Mountain Media in their secure data center located in Albany, New York.

Testing and Quality Control

All pages were tested for cross-platform compatibility using versions 5.x and higher of the Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator browsers on both Macintosh computers and PCs running Microsoft Windows, as well as the Safari browser (Mac only).
