We implemented the design provided by aartvark Communications for Mammoth Productions Inc, a video production house. The salient feature is that different cascading style sheets are loaded depending on the user's screen resolution. Spanning resolutions from 800x600 to 1600x1200, these sheets change, for example, the font parameters for maintaining easy legibility of the text information.

We did the complete e-commerce implementation for Western Drug Distribution Center Ltd. With large annual sales, this co-op site services mostly veterinarians for all of Western Canada. We set up twin web servers, both Red Hat Linux boxes running Interchange. The Interchange code is enhanced with Javascript & Perl code in order to meet the customized requirements. We also configured an auxiliary server, running Fedora, to generate all the data tables, barcodes and thumbnail images required by the web servers.

We recently configured and coded a server to create HTML reports for their various suppliers.

You'll also find a photo puzzle script that dices an image and generates all the required HTML, JavaScript and CSS elements to play the resulting game.

And scripts for various tile animations (including the our "scrapbook" seen on the left), merging in parallel, photographic mosaics, a threaded Liebmann iteration method, ...
