Example text

What better way than to borrow one of nature's prototypes? Most of the interfaces on the web are often nothing more than rows of buttons in grid formation, a bit like a few rows of a spreadsheet! My second reason for using the spiral as a prototype has to do with the utilization of space. Using the spiral as a model, Nature expertly makes the most out of its spatial confines. DNA is a great example of the economical use of space for storing information, as it coils information into a dense double helical formation - any other way and these chains would take up much greater volume.

Personally, I like to carry a metaphor throughout the entire site as it allows for more creativity by limiting the range in which to work. For instance, if someone tells me to draw a picture of anything, the complete freedom of subject matter doesn't necessarily challenge me into creative corners, whereas if I am told to draw a picture of a castle, then immediately the mind starts playing with ideas and variations such as who (or what) owns the castle, the real or imaginary land it where might be located, or what elements the castle might have been built from.

It's very nice to have the latest speed-machine but I prefer working on an older machine happily knowing I'm coding for the common ground, and that my files will more-than-likely perform as good, if not better, on other people's machines. 4571; rota = 45; kolor = 5; pha = 80; cshape and dshape are important factorial variables that are used to describe the shape of the buttons - they are used in a prototype function called drawshape that we will define later in the code. rota defines a rotational constant that is used in the plotting positions of the buttons and this variable affects the final configuration of the buttons on screen.
