As I've said on March 5, 2010, new designs will be posted only in the FAST SEARCH area. However, in that area I post a design such as dcross1  to many places - such as in DOVES, BIRDS, CROSSES, etc. As if that's not enough to drive me insane, I have and will post here a link to one page only. If you need to see all the pages, look at the design and then choose pages that have parts of the design in them. Such to say: A design with a cross, rose, candle, and/or a particular saint will be found under all the pages marked accordingly.
And some don't think I'm worth the $150 you pay me weekly, tuss-tuss!

                        Bill's Designs:

dcross1, dcross1a, cross1b, dhand1, dhand2, dhand3, dhand4, dhand5, dhand6,   dhand7, dhand8, dhand9

I know; I should have used orange for autumn. But green is appropriate because while you weren't looking a hellva lot happened over here, more than ever has happened around here since the days of Sam & Lori, Eddie and Jim (circa 1992.)  This year - so far - we had 3 offers to purchase our Drawing Board. 2 of these bidders had no idea what this Board is. They think it's a business. So when I told them all I had to sell was the name, my designs and some odd programs, they still offered a bid, but had no idea what they were bidding for. The third, they know exactly what we are and we're still talking, but don't hold your breaths, folks.
Then to add to the mayhem, my trusty old Win98 computer crashed - it died. Gone. That's the machine I do all my drawing on and all the conversions and postings. No Win98, no work done at the Board (by me, anyway.)
Today, I was able to get it back up with all new guts. But no one wants to deal with Win98 machines so I have no idea how this will continue. So far, so ... I sure miss James.
Stay tuned .. I have posts to find among the crashed files and to convert and post.

Relatives with cell phones spent a week at our place in the forest. I finally got to actually hold and view what the site looks like on a hand-held device. Tedious little toy, huh? The Board doesn't look "terrible," but no where good enough. So, for now, I will continue to develop, yet me thinks the Board - the entire Board - will not look good on one of those things for a long while. This look will work in a pinch, but that's about it.

I wish to thank Barbara of Simpson Granite Works for her help in developing our new look to accommodate hand-held devices. We can always use more help, don't be shy.

Just a quick note: I found a great resource for LOGOS. We've been sued so many times and screamed at a thousand more, it's amzing there is another company offering logos out there. And they do it better than us. Please visit and bookmark : Seek Logo.com2

****URGENT*** Our usual instructions for downloading a design are to right click and use SAVE TARGET or SAVE LINK AS. If you employ MS Explorer, ignore this message: FIRE FOX browsers will not download the design in this fashion. If you use Fire Fox simply click directly on the file format you want and it will then be downloaded. If you have been upset because the files you have tried to take give you and error message (NOT THE PROPER TYPE) that's the reason why.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR LOOK? Got tighter, huh? I'm not doing this to prove I'm worth my $150 weekly paycheck - but it helps, right? What you're seeing and experiencing is another first for the industry - but not the Net. I figured while redoing the entire site anyway with the FAST SEARCH project, why not make us iPOD able and all hand held devices. So that's the story. When you're at your next client's home or on the golf course, and need to show them a design now there's no waiting to get at a computer. Pull out your phone.
This will take some time, yet it will be finished long before the FAST SEARCH - that's for sure!
Our new FaceBook account will be managed by Cathy.
Oh, by the way, some of you have been asking to see newly posted design BEFORE I post them. I keep the next posting in a hidden file until I post them at: notpostedyet.htm    I update the file often; it is a working file. I do not suggest you rely on it because it might look very different when I finally merge it into the What's New. But, hey, knock yourself out.

Just a quick update:
*: The big website in the sky is working fine.  Any issues contact me. So far, I cannot prevent multiple log ins so.....
*: I'm bringing back ADSTONE - you don't have to log in every time you move from pages to designs - You may want to bookmark the site in case the big site goes down or has troubles again. The location is http://www.mydrawingboardmirror.com  Because this site resides in my bed room, it will operate daily from 10AM until 10PM. EST. Requests to leave it on 24 hours will be gladly honored.
*: While bringing up the old ADSTONE, I found 1,400 designs we thought had been lost. They are not posted and many are not in eps, ai or 2d format. Fixing these and posting them will remian on my back burner.
*:  Like I need more work, right?  I am going to redesign the site so that you new users (The China guys especially) can clearly view the Board via hand-held devices.  I would love one or more of you to help me by viewing my new files. I haven't the bucks for those things. Hmmm... does the membership want to buy...wait, I'm too old for those silly, tiny, tedious devices. Anyone want to help?

Damn, that sucks!
OK, got this new server up and going. Not without issues. Pay attention, please: The new server requires you to log in twice - I'm still working on changing that. Once to login when you request a page showing drawings and once when you request to download the drawing. I had to type in each and every one of your user-ids and passwords.  Remember those days? And for those of you who have been around since the mid-90's recall how I misspell any word I can throw together. If you cannot log in - or can once but not twice - alert me. I'll get it right for you. Just like every time we switch servers we lose drawing files, pages, all kinds of stuff. Please speak up when you find something out of order. I have drawings to post and did a lot in the Fast Search area - but it's after 1 AM and I'm not use to these chores anymore. Night, night.

June 2. 2010  
Every time we change to a new server, I pray no one notices. Apparently, a lot of you noticed.  Unfortunately, our hosting company installed new software and they and we are baffled. Please hang in there. Hopefully we'll be pretty-much normal very soon.

At this time each year I post the new user access fees. As it stands presently, there are no changes to to mention. I say this for a reason. You'll notice I have few new designs to post and I did very little work over at the FAST SEARCH area. Yet I have been consumed with Board business - and not at calculating fees. That was figured out last December.  I am not at liberty to say what ties me up at this time. And, yes, I am being intentionally mysterious because I may have to come back later with all kinds of news as well as a change to the access fees.  Just covering my back here, folks. Still I hope to have some exciting news for y'all by month's end.

You guys put me on a one day schedule .. think was in 2004. But the FAST SEARCH project has me working hard everyday - and loving it and not charging you for my time. This is a really nice area. You'd think I've have no time at all for new postings - that's only half true. As I go through the designs
posted and create web pages around them in the new area, I'm finding many designs that are corrupt  and/or not in all popular formats. Know why? Because Gerber donated their system to us in 1994.  Before that we never dealt with PLT or EPS files. So I've been converting and re-posting like a mad
man. Which? Literally hundreds. Best I can do to show you what I've been up to is to say that all  the pages listed HERE have been all revised. Each and every design found on everyone of those pages  has been confirmed to be valid, then posted on general pages in the FAST SEARCH  area and very  often pages were created around each design.

My dearest mentors were Roy Buzwell, Don Sheriff and "Little Hugo" Calderara. The last two being the closest and most influential. And Hugo being the more famous as he and Mike Colonna are the artists who sprung the modern look of sand carving upon the world in the 1930's.  One day
"Little Hugo" and I had finished spending an entire week redecorating one of my dad's showrooms. No small feat as I was just a kid and Hugo a midget. We had embarked on the project because St. Charles Memorials did under 2% of my Dad's monument business. We wanted to turn that around - which never happened. After we had finished our task,  Hugo and I plopped atop a couple of 1-8x2-0s and Hugo sighed, "Looks great. Now all we need is a customer." 
As I mentioned in the pervious WHAT'S NEW, I am plugging away at this new FAST SEARCH project. It is really one of those impossible dreams thingies. So far I've recreated 50 pages with like 1000 yet to go - and that grows in number as new designs fill old pages. But no one has commented on FAST CONNECT. There haven't been new members (nothing new) or even a peek from staffers like James or Cathy. I'm not discouraged. I'm one of those guys who grew up awaiting results ... which seldom come.
Hence forward whenever I post new designs they will be posted ONLY into the Fast Search area.  (except for the first two of  my work posted below this one last time.)

Just a quick note. I am building a completely separate website area called FAST SEARCH Doing so will slow down new designs I personally draw - this is a major project. It is being built because I am a bit tired of hearing folks say that their searches give them too many designs not of their keywords. OK, fine, we can do this one of 2 ways. Hire a PHP programmer to do keyword searches - that's like $10,000 ... Don't tell me, you're not for that, right? Or I can just do design by design and post each on web pages with like keywords - that will take the rest of my life, but that's what I'll do.
Any help is appreciated and ALL COMMENTS and SUGGESTIONS are encouraged and sought after.
You can observe my progress at: FAST SEARCH.
 This will be the icon for the new Fast Search ..............

 Wow, another year. Gosh, I'm been doing this since 1981 - except for when Jimmy took over for a spell in 1988 and Sam & Lori did it for a time in 1994. Not sure if  ShelbyM ever handled the What's New page, but he sure did a lot of other things back then in the last century. Been a lovely relationship.
