|The original FELINE database had a Viewdata/Teletext style front page, where the user chose which category they wanted. Having chosen the name "FELINE", I tried to draw a front page with some sort of cat-like image, but it didn't work. The graphical resolution available simply wasn't sufficient.|
The font for the FELINE title (with the special letter N) was designed like that to avoid using a diagonal line. The stepped graphics of a single diagonal in the title would not have looked pleasing to the eye.
The graphics facilities on the World Wide Web are of course far superior to teletext block graphics: we can now use a picture of a real cat. The one shown here is called Harry - he was the first cat to be featured when FELINE moved to CampusWorld. His main hobbies are sleeping, eating, and tap-dancing on keyboards.
