We were proud to get a writeup by Karelia for use of their Sandvox web development tool:
VetFM.com is the website for a Mac and PC veterinary practice manager, and they've used Sandvox to present an outline of their services to potential customers.
Of particular interest is the Sandvox photo grid they've used to create a slideshow of their product's features. Presenting a collection in this way gives the viewer a clean and easy-to-read photo grid, presents a nearly full-screen shot of each slide, and allows viewers to easily navigate forward or backward, or to jump to the index to find a particular slide. (For information on how you can create collections, visit the "How do I....?" overview on collections.)
Like other sites in the Site Gallery, VetFM's site also illustrates how the banner can feature a corporate logo or a combination of logo and text to give your site a unique look. Users who are comfortable with graphic design and CSS may wish to review the "How do I...? overview on modifying designs.

Foundation still quietly fighting prostate cancer By Walt Wiley -- Bee Staff Writer Published 2:15 am PST Friday, January 7, 2005
All through the 1990s, the Robert J. Mathews Foundation for Prostate Cancer Research was in the news frequently when the men's disease was discussed. But all that stopped in 2002. Mary Lou Wright, CEO of the Sacramento-based foundation, died that year, and the foundation stopped too. The office closed. The telephone was disconnected. The Mathews Foundation Web site disappeared. The secretary of state's office listed the foundation as inactive. But reports of the foundation's death were grossly exaggerated.
"The foundation has gone quiet, but we're still here," said Susie Mathews, widow of Robert J. Mathews. "And we're going to continue supporting the research." Her dedication in the battle against prostate cancer surgery is as strong as ever, she said. The foundation is inactive because there has been no one to keep it going, but Mathews is not about to do away with it, she said. She recently contributed $1 million through the Mathews Foundation to boost the UC Davis Medical Center's Cancer Center. Prostate cancer, according to Us Too, a national prostate support organization, strikes as many men (and causes almost as many deaths annually) as breast cancer does women but lacks the national awareness and research funding that breast cancer currently receives. Mathews is trying to change that by increasing the effort against prostate cancer. Her husband, founder of CableData (now DST Innovis and DST Output), died of prostate cancer in 1987 at age 49. A year later, she founded the Mathews Foundation, which the next year gave $100,000 to UC Davis Medical Center for prostate cancer research.
