During our training in Utrecht, Betsy became convinced she also needed a website.

However, after registering the domain and getting a hosting service up and running, she didn't do much with the site and became more frustrated then elated with building her own corner on the web.

So, Baba's projects to the rescue.

The site is based on a blogging tool by Uapplication. I included Dutch support and threw around some of the code.

In July 2007, It was time to upgrade Betsy's blog.

The site still runs on an old implementation of Ublog. The fresh design is based on work by Arcsin and was obtained through Open Web Design. The tag cloud is still done through ZoomClouds, but now uses their API, instead of a bit of javascript. The lovely Polaroid-like effect on some of the images are courtesy of the javascript library instant.js.
