About the Website News

How this website was created

This website was created by Dimitar Pachov at some point in the first quarter of 2010 while he was a graduate student in the Kern group, and was launched on and around May of 2010. The general template has been inspired from an old free template website, which I had to completely rewrite to adhere to the current web standards as well as to the XHTML 1.1 and CSS2 specifications.

All images and pictures on the website were created and/or manipulated with Gimp, CorelDraw, and VMD. The initial design of the background came from a friend of mine - the artist Darina Valcheva - which I subsequently modified to correlate with the overall look of the website.

The website should look reasonably well in all major browsers. Since this is the first website I create, comments, suggestions and reports of bugs are welcome.
