is Keith Hill, d.b.a. Webin Works. I am 53 years old and was
born and reared in Tulsa. I moved to beautiful Tenkiller Lake
in 1982, where I opened my own machine shop. (Hill's Machine
& Mfg. Co.) I have worked as a machinist all my working life.
Then about two years ago, I made a huge career move.
my first computer on January 1, 1995. Little did I know, at the
time, what a life altering move that would be. After a few upgrades
and with the arrival of the internet service to my rural area,
I was "on-line". That was it! Done deal! What a wonderful
thing, this Internet. You can go anywhere you want, find anything
there is to find, and all from the comfort of your own home.
take long to figure out that I might like to try my hand at making
a web page. I came across a free service which allowed me to
use a template, then save the page to my drive. And so it began.
I searched the web for information on how to make a real web
site, did a lot of studying, and I was off on the adventure of
I put together
my very own website in July of 1997. The links have been disabled
now, but you can see the home page here.
Laugh, if you can keep from crying. I was really quite proud
of this page. This is not "the" very first page, but
updates to my own site, a friend, in the boat building business,
asked me to build a web site for him and I agreed. Not long after
that, another business owner in the area, wanted a site, too,
and on this went, until I reached a point where I didn't have
the time to run my machine shop and work on the computer, both.
I decided to close the machine shop to public business about
two years ago. From machinist, to webmaster, I consider that
a huge career move.
I have developed approximately thirty-five web sites and currently
retain and maintain twenty-nine of them. I now build sites that
are much lighter in graphics than before (all my own work now),
with shorter pages, and hopefully, better layouts. I try to keep
my sites cross browser compatible and display properly across
multiple resolutions, to satisfy as many as possible. Above all,
I want them to be easy on the eyes, load in reasonable time,
and navigate well.
Tenkiller Lake Central, is one that I started about three years
ago and only recently revived in order to provide a much needed
resource for the lake area. I totally enjoy working on it and
hope it's of benefit to the community.
seeking awards (for the first time) for this site is teaching
me much about web standards, that I hadn't given a lot of weight
to in the past. It will undoubtedly make me a better webmaster
in the future.
Thanks for taking the time to
learn a little about me. I hope I didn't bore you.

It needs some lightening up. Since I've been so busy on other
works, I've neglected my own. I'll get to it one of these days
