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.


I currently have a disagreement with Linus, RMS, FSF, AT&T, Google and the Linux/UNIX developer world in general. While all of these people and organizations are great and honorable, I am disturbed by the naming convention used by (GNU/Linux) - UNIX Background Drivers.

If you are in a position to do so, please contact RMS, Linus, FSF , Google (and anyone else of UNIX influence) and let them know your feelings about these inappropriately named background drivers.

Please note that while I *believe* AT&T was one (there are likely many more) of the pioneering companies for UNIX, I don’t personally know just exactly where this naming convention got started. It should also be noted that while I'm *pretty sure* AT&T still uses UNIX, I don’t know if they still play an active role in its development. To be honest, I think RMS, Linus and the FSF do more to shape modern day UNIX than anyone else in the world.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)

Disclaimer: I am not claiming to be righteous. I am a sinner saved by the Grace and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. My objections to the naming convention solely indicate my preferences and are in no way meant to harm or defame those that use/promote products with such naming conventions. Jesus was sent to heal the lost and sick not to harm them.

"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9 NIV
