Welcome!

If you’re a returning visitor, we’re glad you’re back. If this is your first visit – a word of explanation about who we are and what you’ll find here:

The folks behind this site are seasoned design professionals and software engineers. We share a common interest in Computer Technology and Design. We believe the two fields are symbiotically linked and that each discipline enhances and strengthens the other. We’ve built XIMIX.biz as a way of sharing those beliefs with the wider world. So far, we’ve been fairly successful at building a community. We’re attracting a lot of visitors and many of you have left comments and suggestions. In fact, many of the topics for our articles began as suggestions from you. That’s why we love your feedback. You’re helping us to grow and improve.

As with any new venture, we’ll be working hard to improve the site and broaden our audience. Over time, you can expect to see many changes. We’ll be trying out new layouts in a quest to make the site more interesting and user friendly. We’ll also be adding new content and refreshing our older postings. We’re not quite sure where our curiosity will lead but we promise to make the journey informative and entertaining.
