Warning!!! - I'm having serious family problems right now. This website is meant to be useful, but right now, I'm struggling. I don't want to just toss this website though. I haven't decided yet if a "rebranding" is necessary. The utilars.com domain can still be used, but if my family troubles continue, the "tone" of this website might change. Fortunately, I'm taking a break from competitive cycling for a while so I have a bit more free time for now.
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.


This site would like to host conservative works of art and science that lift up the traditional American family and honor the Lord Jesus Christ. If you own the full copyrights to any such work and wish to have it listed on this site, contact the webmaster for further information.

The webmaster (Shawn Eary) is a professional programmer with more than 10 years experience. Mr. Eary spent about 7 years working as an ASP.NET programmer. Now he works as a PeopleSoft Developer at University of Arkansas (Fayetteville).
