Welcome to the all-new all-singing all-dancing Laura Lemay web site. Constructed entirely of biodegradeable post-consumer products, these pages are fortified with ten essential vitamins and minerals and produced entirely without the use of animal testing.
I’m currently living in the mountains just outside Silicon Valley with Eric
and a bunch of cats and chickens. I do contract technical writing
for a living. For almost ten years in the 90s I wrote computer books. I don’t do that anymore.
About This Site
This is the sixth iteration of this web site.
This site is powered by WordPress
. The design is based on the Thesis
theme from DIY Themes. I worked on my own theme for many months before becoming so mired in details I decided it was a better idea to just go with a professional theme. Thesis has been a dream to work with.
The art nouveau images on each page are out-of-copyright images from Art Nouveau Designs in Color
, a Dover reproduction of a lovely book from 1900. I scanned them and redrew them in Adobe Illustrator. The colors are not the original colors but are appropriate to the time.
All site development was done on a Macintosh Mini and a MacBook laptop with TextWrangler, emacs, and Firefox. I still write HTML and CSS by hand.
