Integrated Digital Design™ for the New Millennium

A Data, Print & Web Resource

Resource Systems OnLine is for anyone interested in computing information and services, although it is primarily geared for small businesses who might not otherwise have ready access or budget for our range and type of specialized services.

You will find information and service descriptions that profile Resource Systems Services, its interest in these varied digital fields — from database development for small businesses to graphical design for Print and Web, ultimately, to the technical — and what RSS may be able to do for you.

The four major sections of this site are labelled atop each page with single-word descriptions, for succinctness and graphical clarity. However, each section's topical focus may not be immediately clear using only one-word descriptions. So, what follows may be of help to making this site more useful, meaningful and navigable for you:

ABOUT: Did you ever want to know just what Resource Systems Services is, and who runs the show? Probably not. But you'll find out anyway, if you venture into this section. However, to avoid its being wholly self-serving and patently dull, you should be able to find more than mere background-skillset-program-scope stuff. Littered carefully among the seemingly random prose should be brief treatises of dreams and aspirations; what makes up the 10% after the perspiration; and links to other sites I have designed or had a role in designing.

DESIGN:Corp ID, Data, Logo, Print & Web. Samples of logos I have developed and my perspective on the directions and quality of logo work in the marketplace. Relational database design and my perspective on what to use to optimize the benefits of cross-platform development and what is most facile for the client to inherit and maintain, once the project is handed off.

SYSTEMS: I work primarily on a Mac, but provide Windows OS support when needed, as well as use Windows applications under a Pentium Virtual Machine environment on a Mac. The resulting orientation gives me perspective, if not outright opinions, on the strengths and weaknesses of given operating systems. Recommendations, tips and links to Mac and Windows sites.

TECH: This section is not as geeky as the name may suggest. Although it may get technical, including discussions of file formats, for example, the "tech" also refers to "techniques," computing and design tips which you may find helpful or, perhaps, amusing.

Conventions used on this site:

- Clicking this button returns you to this Web site's Home Page.

The auto-greeting box that comes up on the home page does not record your name in any database or in your browser's cookie file. It is only used for greeting and demonstration purposes.

- Clicking this button brings up an e-mail window, making it easy for you to submit your thoughts, comments, requests to yours truly.

IMPORTANT: This button activated a JavaScripted e-Mail function that automatically inserts a "Subject" line based on the page from which you clicked...and also places a reference to the exact page in the body copy. This helps provide a context by which your comments can be more immediately interpreted. For this to work, you must have JavaScript enabled in your browser preferences.

- Clicking this button will launch a Printer-Friendly version of the page you are viewing, and in a separate window. When done printing from the new window, simply close it to reveal the original browser window. Such links will appear on selected pages as this site evolves.

BROWSER NOTE: You won't need Java® to view this site, but you will need to have JavaScript® for this site to work well for you. Be sure it is enabled among your browser's "Preferences" settings.

DISPLAY NOTE: This site is best viewed with your monitor set to 800x600 or better. A 640x480 setting (more common by default on older 15" or smaller displays) will prove frustrating, as you need to scroll laterally just to capture the core width of page content.
