Eurekapoint v1.0

First went live August of 2003, and laid mostly dormant because I got hired to do Oracle work full-time. I created this site using an Imac G3 (Blueberry) running MacOS 9.2, page was laid out using Dreamweaver 3, all graphics was done with Photoshop 5.5. I didn’t hand code much then and this site was laid out the old fashioned way with tables and single pixel transparent gifs – it wasn’t easy back then.
