Orange you glad you visited DCT?


Does something look out of place? Is there something different, but maybe you can’t put your finger on it? Well, you are not alone!

DCT has a new look!

DCT-small Times change and so does technology. We often speak of the good ol’ days, but as each of us are geeks at heart a little “technology” change is usually a good thing!

DCT has been a fairly static arrangement over the years. First as static hand coded pages and after our move to a CMS (content management system) as a static display – meaning a fixed width – much to the ire of of folks using the newest mobile technology and those who use lower display resolutions. We’ve tried many different fixes, tricks, and hacks to accommodate every visitor, but there was never a solution that provided optimal viewing for each and every one… Until now.

DCT also was a bit, oh how do I say this? Amateurish in design. I’m by no means graphically gifted and always had trouble coloring within the lines, so this isn’t a surprise to anyone who knows me. I do my best, but my best never presented a truly professional appearance to the visitor. A quick example of my stellar design skill is the color blue which has had a starring role in each previous iteration of DCT. Blue is my favorite color, of course, and I just couldn’t help but subconsciously include it.

Ladies and Gentlemen…

I present to you Daves Computer Tips 3.0! A modern and simplistic design with a “clean” feel to it. Most important is the fact that this theme is “responsive” to the user. It scales based on the visitor’s viewing device all the while keeping a consistent look and feel. You can now view DCT on your smartphone, tablet, computer, and everything in between. Be the first to tell your friends or a complete stranger!

I will be honest, though. Everything isn’t yet perfect and I appreciate your patience as we all learn this new interface and its limitations.


Yes, I do know it is orange. It will grow on you… I promise. Hey, at least it isn’t blue!
