My latest accomplishment has been completing (mostly) the interface for the Nokia 770,
which is also usable from a browser on laptops around the house.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to use the bland buttons on the home page, or use icons.

Wow, that is a really nice setup! I REALLY like the clean displays!

Looks like you have the irrigation well under control, and that is my next project.

I'll have to second that, I like how you've layed out the pages and as I dont have any graphic design I'll probably base them on yours.

Our house has just started and I'll need to create some web pages myself. I have to make them usable on a nokia 770, mobile and 17" touch screen
