Why AOL drives web designers crazy!
For reasons known only to AOL, the mega-gateway's browser does not respond to many normal programming instructions. The result is windows that return to the wrong size automatically, old pages that are displayed instead of up-to-date ones, and simple Javascript commands that don't work. Many designers don't even try to accomodate AOL, leaving users to see malfunctioning web pages. read more
High quality web design budgeted for the non-profit community and government agencies

We design dynamic websites where you yourself can change the content day by day or minute by minute. Free yourself from the lost time and expense of paying your webdesigner for every little change on your site. Once we're set up your site, you can edit text, insert photos, or upload new articles to your site without any programming knowledge. Would you like to publish an online newsletter where you update the content through simple web-based forms? Would you like your site's visitors to contribute to your site's collection of success stories, resources or references with no work by you? Would you like to create an online community through a user-friendly forum? Let us craft you an affordable, dynamic website that you can update when you want, how you want!  read more
