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.


Simple FCML licensed images that may *possibly* be resused to form more complex images.

Here is a picture that I attempted to draw of a Black Hole. To be honest, I'm not sure anyone actually knows what a black hole looks like. I *think* we are all guessing. Let me know if someone has seen "real universe" light effects of a black hole.

Here are some images either I or my wife took. The thumbnails below are just PNGs, but you will need Internet Explorer 9 or higher to view the full sized JPEG XR images. Please support JPEG XR. It seems to allow for higher compression rates than PNG and TIFF but still allows lossless compression with transparency.

A flower that my daughter Kristen Grace Eary drew. I scanned it and cut the background out to turn it into clipart. You are allowed to use the image in your own collective works; however, you must provide attribution at a tasteful place within your presentation. For example, if you are using the image to create a PowerPoint presentation, you may crop out the copyright notice on the slide you are using the image on but you must provide a credits section at the end of your PowerPoint presentation. Please use good judgement.
