DLa Website Back Online

[ DLa History ]
DLa Tree by ThaneC
The Dead Letter Art website is temporarily back online. This is the once infamous, vomit-green version of the website we’re talking about here. One of the first serious attempts at website design, the green DLa site offers slice-based rollover action, table-based markup, and seriously grotesque aesthetics. However hideous the site, its content showcases some of the finest highlights from the Dead Letter Art experience.

Nonetheless, the site is back online for a hopefully brief three-week tour. This may indeed be your last chance to relive some of that ol’ vomit-green magic. So come on, feel the love…

Update

After 10+ years of dedicated service, DLa is now retired and living happily in various places around the planet.

RIP DLa: 2001–2011.

  1. Serious as a Monza. As of next week we will be working on a fresh new version of the DLa website. Plans are also in effect to revitalize the DLa zine itself, with a new issue already in da werx. After two years away from the project, the time seems right to start fresh and, hopefully, produce some worthwhile and perhaps even inspiring material. Needless to say, your enthusiastic involvement will greatly add to our humble collaborative collective. I am stoked to experience more of your complex collage werk, and look forward to future endeavours of creativity and productivity.

    You’re serious, right? Hmm, I have some fresh, or relatively fresh works to post in any future issues. Check out my MySpace profile for pics of stuff I have been working on since I bailed out of most social circles. I have other works lined up, but these days I am focusing mostly on throw away bits and pieces, or good ol’ cut and paste collages that I likely will not digitize. Seattle bores me to tears . . . It sucks here! Anyone want to collaborate on some work? I’ll start the ball rolling if I can interest someone in helping me to keep the thing in motion. Thanimal, are you out there? Monzter, are you scared? Best stop hiding and come out to play with the big Kidz!

    Update: The Dead Letter Art website received an extreme design makeover earlier this year. Thus, the now-infamous vomit-green site has been replaced with a seriously chilly, uber-functional design featuring improved functionality, completely renovated site structure, and totally beefed-out archive and library content. So drop by and give ‘er a spin.. you simply won’t be disappointed. P.S., for those of you dying for a flashback into the vomit-green realmz of the previous DLa site, you’re in luck — we stashed an independent version of it (404 link removed — hidden DLa site removed October 2011).

    May the force be with you.

Never force your users to type out a password (or any long string of characters) by blocking the paste function. Typing long strings leads to MORE errors than simple copy/paste.

What's up with Plesk UI lately? Especially on Chrome it looks just awful, all kinds of broken. Come on Plesk devs get it together.
