Now that I had a web address, I needed to put up a professional looking website to serve as a portal to the Brush with Extinction project. Even though I have been using computers for over 25 years, starting with the Commodore VIC-20, with a hard to believe 21K of system memory, my attempts at programming stopped with some very simple BASIC programs that made the screen flash different colors. As far as website design went, I knew what HTML was, but also recognized that actually writing HTML code was a whole different ballgame than passing familiarity. So it was time to find a professional. I certainly lucked out when it came to finding a web designer. My wife’s 84 year old grandfather has had a life-long passion with computers and technology, tracing back to the punch card days of the early 1950s. To keep au courant with technology, he took a website design class and then set up a small website design consulting business, T(only) Web Designs, and took on several jobs for some local businesses and organizations. After I told him about the Brush with Extinction project, he agreed to help put the website together free of charge. Given that the budget for the project is currently zero, I jumped at the offer. Now it was time to take all of the ideas I had in my head of how I wanted it all to look and get it up on the web.
