Computer & Web Site Design Project Page

This project is held usually on the Sunday after the Unit Meeting.  Starting time is 5:00 pm.  Age requirements are nine and above.  The goal of the project is to maintain the website and help publish the Acornicle newsletter using a number of computer programs including FrontPage, Word, Paint Shop Pro, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, JAlbum, WebCalendar, and others.  The project leader is Gene Peterson.

The History of the Jamul Chaparros Web Site

The Jamul Chaparros Computer Project created this web site in 1999 with the help of project members Nicole, Nick, and Russell.  The first web site was on the free server at  This site was left there, but not maintained, until Yahoo closed down in October 2009.

After a few months trying to use a dial-up modem service, we moved the meetings to the Fletchers, where we had access to cable internet service.  In 2001 we decided to change the web site to so we could use FrontPage to automatically upload the growing number of pages and pictures.

We quickly found that only 10 Megabytes of free web space was not enough for the expanding club information and activities, so we looked for other options.  Russell Peterson is now running his own computer business, All Star Computers (formally known as Krumbles Computers), and he contributed 200 megabytes for the club web site.  We purchased and registered the domain name  in July 2003, to make is easy for club members and leaders to remember the web site address.

In January 2005, the County 4-H Office loaned the club a refurbished computer, which is being used to maintain the club web site and other club operations.  Our web site is currently around 100 mega bytes of information and pictures about our club and activities.
