Warning!!! - My wife and children have recently separated from me and I'm having a serious struggle with my faith.
This site is designed to work with *modern* HTML5 browsers like Microsoft Edge
IE10 or later also works pretty good. As of April 23, 2016 Firefox and Chrome still don't:
  1. seem to have official support for GridBased Layout but it seems to be comming soon
  2. seem to support JPEG-XR even though I believe it is a formal ISO Standard under an open format: ISO/IEC 29199-2:2012
Other browsers may also have variying support, but I *personally* consider Microsoft Edge, Chrome and FireFox the major browser vendors of present time.

Welcome to Utilars

Utilars is a site for Christian friendly art and science. The name is derived from the latin terms Utilis (Useful) and Ars (Art or Science).

This site is based upon the retired ConservativeArt and www.arsQuies.com websites.

This site is a rebranding of the formerly mentioned sites. Admitedly, I've neglected this website. I've been doing other things like spending time with my family and riding my bicycle. Lately, I've been training for the 2019 DK200, but my wife and children seem to have left me and I'm not sure if they are comming back. It looks like I may have to *ride* my bicycle to Emporia, KS. Oh what a joy that will be and I seriously doubt I will make the 21 hour cutoff on "race" day. I've done about three 200 milers in one day, but those we all on paved roads. Unfortunately, I only seem to be able to get 10 MPH Avg on Gravel. So with:

  1. no family
  2. no car
  3. less than an ideal bicycle
  4. and
  5. possible debt out my ears

I'll be in for one hell of a tourture session. This is assuming I even live until June 1st, 2019. This is probably going to be the suckiest ride of my life, but if I live through it, I'll have one hell of a story to tell...
