This site was designed and programmed by Dan Collis Puro, brother of Timothy Puro.
Dan currently works as a web programmer/developer, and has a diverse job experience. He's worked as a grassroots political organizer, has administered a 3.3 million record member database for a non-profit environmental political organization (the State Pirgs), worked in a scrap yard, and delivered potato chips to retail stores.
Dan has extensive technical experience, including:
- Graphic (print) design,
- Web design and programming,
- Internet security,
- HTML cross-browser compatibility,
- Database design, optimization, and maintenance,
- And currently accepts freelance web design projects.
Dan's design philosophy is "simple is better," for users, for administrators, and for businesses. The best sites are those that get information to users quickly, without relying on graphic "flashiness" over substance. Graphics have their place, unfortunately they are often used at the expense of good HTML design and usability.

This site is entirely built with open-source tools (except for some of the graphics) and is hosted on Linux.
