While showcasing the power of CSS3, one of Google's programmers created this cool easter egg.*  Go to google.com and type "do a barrel roll" without the quotes in the search field.  Geek fun!

 

*Easter egg:  an intentional hidden message or in-joke which can be hidden in a computer program, web page, video game, dvd, etc.  www.eeggs.com has a pretty complete list.

Can't believe it's that time already.  I saw this template in my HTML 5 weekly newsletter last week and couldn't resist.

Spacerock - RELOADED
Posted September 18, 2011

I've been waiting for this moment for a long time.  I had started this project a few months ago and now that I have taken a class in CSS3/HTML5, I went in and blew up what I had done.  It is my pleasure to introduce the new Spacerock.

Getting Ready to Launch the New Spacerock
Posted August 14, 2011

So I've been working for a while on a facelift for this website.  The 15th anniversary of this website is coming up on December 10th - I thought it was in 2012 but just checked.  Wow. 

I've been working in a lot of new technologies lately - particularly HTML5, CSS3, and taking the much needed leap to learn javaSccript.  The new site will launch hopefully by September 1.  You can take a look around by clicking here.

Posted June 12, 2011

It was cold and windy over here, so we rode over to my mom's - my mom has been really wanting to ride, but her neck problems make it tough with the weight of the helmet.  She said "Let's go!" and put on her neck brace.

Slump!
Posted April 10, 2011

So I got a cool vase at a garage sale yesterday but it turned into a puddle.  DOH.  So I tried a little blue bottle I had gotten at the flea market LAST week to try again...as soon as I saw it starting I shut off the kiln but it was too late.  Ugh.  I WILL get this right one of these days...

My latest Pane
Posted March 16, 2011

I did this in "Gallery Glass" in 1983 - Gallery Glass is where you squeeze the 'leading' as latex stuff out of a bottle (tracing a pattern) onto clear glass, then you use eyedroppers to drop the 'stain' in the pools formed by the latex once it dries.  I have wanted to do this in actual stained glass ever since, so finally, I've done it!
