You will see several graphics throughout these pages.

Trademark Signature ▪ ▪
An "L" (for Lade)
overlaps an "A" (for Aaron) in my handwriting. Although simple, the
sphere after the "A" represents the on-going attempt for near
perfection. A line at the tail of the "L" forms a cross, which needs
the Stamp ▪ ▪
This is the new stamp which will accompany my
signature and made its first appearance on
It's from my Kštzchen and it
was the best present I got for my birthday. The timing allowed me to
stamp 2007's Christmas card which was the perfect place to start
using it. Thanks Rabbitzchen!
the Logo ▪ ▪
My earlier logo was more or less a doodle -
offering little association to anything other than the website
address. With the emergence of Musket Media, I revisited the idea of
a meaningful mark. Simple, symmetric and bold, these two Ms are the
new label of Musket Media. There are three versions here and itís
important to explain some details. The top graphic, is a transparent
GIF, which in one word is awesome. I made the background with a
color (red in this case) that become invisible. In fact, you canít
see red in the graphic here. What that means is itís completely
compatible with any color background because there is no Ďwhiteí.
Try it and see what I mean. The bottom two graphics are PNG files
and they are not transparent so I offer two for a white or black
background, but you can contact me for a specific background color
if you need it. Many of the graphics below are also transparent -
just hover your mouse over the image and a short description will
Using MM Graphics
The graphics below are acceptable images to use as
links to Musket Media. It's easy to capture the images - simply right
click and 'Save Picture As' the original file name or any name you want
The images with text are those I use in the upper
left corner of each page. When you hover the mouse over the first image
(blue), the second image (gold) appears - or vice versa. This is called
a mouse over. You can see the effect, but the link's don't work. If you
want to use this technique, you can get the code to insert in your page
by clicking 'Mouse Over Code' below.
The following are icons (file extension .ico)
They can only be saved with a right click on the text link
and Save As...
If you plan on using the mouse over some modifications
will be necessary.
The code (in the pop-up) is looking for images labeled "mmtiny3.gif" and
"mmtiny3b.gif". You need to change this in the code if you've saved the
images under a different name.
The images in the code are stored in a folder labeled "graphics" (i.e.,
graphics/mmtiny3.gif). "graphics" needs to be changed to the location
you've saved the images. Or delete "graphics/" if you've saved the
pictures in the same location as the page itself.
If you plan on making more than one mouseover image per page some
additional modifications (easy ones) are required. In the sample code,
the image sources are labeled "logo.src" (twice) and "logo". If you want
to add multiple mouseovers you need to sequence or change the
references. So for a second mouseover the labels could be "logo2.src"
and "logo2" or "musket.src" and "musket". If you don't change them, the
mouseover on one image will affect the appearance of another image or
not function at all.
