I may be good at some things, but I'm lousy at making Web sites.

Oh, I know my way around HTML, and I'm decent at Macromedia's Dreamweaver, but just because I know how to paint, doesn't make me Van Gogh.

So it is that when I looked at my sad little Practical Technology Web site, I decided it was time to try something different.

But what?
