MudDawg Web Site Launches

The web site for the MudDawg professional motorcycle racing team went live today. The web site embodies a stark, minimalistic design that conveys speed to viewers.

MudDawg Web Site

To add interest to the Home page of this site, the inset picture changes randomly every time the page is displayed. One downside to a page design like this one is that there’s really no text content on the Home page, so search engines can only classify it based on the title and any metatags that are defined.

Note: (2018/01/13) The web site was online with this design from 2005 to late 2009, when the design was adapted to fit into a WordPress theme.

WorldCon 63

David Keener attended Interaction, the 63rd World Science Fiction Convention in Glasgow, Scotland, from August 4 to August 8. The convention coincidentally took place during David and Sally Keener’s regular vacation to Scotland.
