Welcome... our little slice of the World Wide Web, a combination vanity plate and attempt to establish a independent outpost for publishing information about, and works created by, Kat and Eric Meyer, including the Latest News from the homestead (see below). We also have a section devoted to "other stuff" which doesn't neatly fit under our individual areas, so you could check that out as well.

It's been said that, in the course of surfing the Web, it's possible to stumble across any number of odd things. Here are two more.


 Currently Internet Applications Manager for The Opal Group, Eric has been called "an internationally recognized expert on the subjects of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)," and he knows a thing or two about other aspects of Web design as well. He does as much writing as he can without burning out, and also does his best to keep up with CSS support in popular Web browsers. If you have a taste for early Twentieth Century jazz and swing, you can catch his weekly radio show over the Internet. When not otherwise busy, Eric is usually bothering Kat in some fashion.


 A graduate of the midwifery program at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University, Kat is interested in the role that Kangaroo Care (KC) can play in promoting breastfeeding in newborns. Her work in this area has led to the publication of two professional articles and a poster presentation at a national conference, as well as a coordinating role in a major KC study. In her precious few spare moments, Kat does her best to spoil her cat, Gravity, and to keep Eric's ego in check-- which, let's face it, can be a full time job.

Latest News

Friday, 4 August 2000
Okay, the Big News: we actually went and bought a house, and take possession of it today. Pictures won't be forthcoming any time soon, since we have a lot of work to do and furniture to buy, but at least our address and phone number will finally settle down into something permanent.

Big news a-comin'-- stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the humor of, a new page on the site.

Eric says: The site got a facelift today (thanks to Molly Holzschlag for letting me steal her ideas). I hope you like it, and let me know if you see any major problems. Note: the reason the site looks so bad (but not totally unreadable) in Navigator 4.x is that I did my best to create standards-compliant markup and styles, and Nav4 doesn't deal very well with that sort of thing. If you're using Navigator 4.x, please restrict any bug reports to pages where there is no text, or the layout is so mangled that it's impossible to read the text. As for the long silence since the last update-- okay, so we've been a little busy lately. I'll try to be more forthcoming with news in the future.

Kat's finally feeling better after a week of illness... which is why it took so long to post the notice about her graduation and update the text related to her.
Sunday, 21 May 2000
Kat graduated from her midwifery program today. She is now officially a midwife!

(If you care, there's even an archive of old news...)
