Web Design & Hosting
James likes to make simple websites for fun (well, "profit", but mostly for fun). James does the code work but plays with graphic design a little. Here are examples of 2 sites that he worked on. Mark Reynolds did the graphics for the Rosenzweig site (Leah Donaldson did version 2) and it is hosted by Scott Reynolds. Chems Touati did the graphics for the SCL streaming site (which has also been replaced by a newer version). James also wrote the code for the custom Magnolia templates at www.macos.utah.edu. James also setup DotNetNuke for Gryphon Airlines.
