We’re very pleased to have been selected to redesign and rebuild the website for California Autism Foundation. This foundation provides services for all people with autism in the state of California, ranging from children to seniors. Their new site is designed to be clear, clean and simple. Kimberlee DiBartolo provided copy and selected the excellent photography for the site.
Jonathan Rome got in touch with us earlier this year and wanted assistance converting his old Dreamweaver site to a WordPress one. He had over 280 pages that he’d built over many years, carefully documenting his world travels along with Gretchen. The new site uses Craft by Theme Trust and is a design that Jonathan really likes that features his excellent travel photography very well.

Collabofit just announced that they added 10 new activities you can track in your quest to get more fit. The really interesting new statistic you can track is how long you play video games — this is more and more turning into a serious fitness activity with consoles like the Nintendo Wii encouraging gamers to get up and move when they’re playing.
After receiving a bunch of weird bounced email messages earlier today that looked like they were coming out of our Contact form. It turns out that some spammers had figured out a new way of sending their spam through our server.
The long and the short of it is that we figured out how they were doing it, and we’ve plugged the hole that was allowing them to send emails using our server.
Our appologies to anyone who received spam. We have never, and will never, send out spam. We can’t stand the stuff.
What was the problem? The PHP code we use to power our mail script was not checking for malicious keywords. The spammers were submitting a contact us message that included a bcc: list of email addresses. The script was passing this along to the mail server which interpreted it as a legitimate list of BCC addresses and thus sent out the email to everyone on the list.
This was not a problem we had seen before, and we took immediate action to close the security hole. Once again I’d like to offer my appology to anyone who received one of these messages.
