Open DNS

October 21, 2008 by  

If you are worried about what your children might see on the web and aren’t as computer savvy as you’d like then I would recommend looking at Open DNS.

This is a service that works by replacing the DNS servers your ISP provides to give better speeds and stability to your internet connection. What makes Open DNS better however is that they provide a totally free adult site filtering service – you just have to follow their easy instructions and reister for a free account.

This means that while your kids are blocked from adult content at router level, you are free to turn it off when you want to enjoy some smut ;)

Hello world!

September 6, 2008 by  

Well I’m around 90% done building the site and adding content.
I found so much material to use that I realised most would have to be left out.

I decided to render a lot of the Vivid dvd boxes and Private material as its more interesting to see the product rather than a flat piece of artwork. The Daring! renders were produced at the time of the design though to aid in visualising the whole product package including the disk.

I’m stuill having issues with lightbox scripts not working properly but I’m guessing this is a conflict with other javascripts on the site, other than that – the site is progressing nicely.
