Background Images

We all know that well-designed web sites minimize extraneous graphics, both to improve download speed and to minimize distractions from the primary content. Yet, let's face it, everyone expects some kind of visual stimulation from a web site these days. And on a computer screen, even a plain white background makes black text harder to read than a light shade of grey.

So, even though they have nothing to do with Oracle or Perl, or even computing in general, I selected some photos I took at Bowling Ball Beach, located on the north coast of California near the town of Anchor Bay, to provide the faint background images you see on these pages. This beach has an unusual formation of several hundred rocks, mostly well rounded, that are only visible at extreme low tide.
