Can I get dancing bologna?
We think that the most important part
of your web site is
the information content.
All that fancy, animated,
is useless if it obscures
the message that you're trying to communicate,
or if it slams the door on folks who
use older or non-traditional web browsers
(like iPhones, Blackberry devices, or other cell phones) or low-speed connections.
The visual design of your web site
should accurately convey your company's outlook.
If that includes dancing bologna,
of course, we can do that too!

was known as "Tinker Internet Services".
We changed our domain name to westryn.net
in March of 2009.

Our company is founded on three principles:
- Exceptional technical competence
We really know our stuff.
And when there's something we don't know,
we don't try to fake it -
we go learn it.
We also work with a number of independent colleagues
who are experts in other areas.
- Friendly, personal service
We're a small company, and we enjoy what we do.
We like getting to know our customers,
and our customers like knowing that they can
depend on us
to understand and address their needs.
Many of our customers have been with us for over 15 years.
- Effective physical and network security
Some people think we're too paranoid about security,
but just because you're paranoid doesn't mean
that they're not out to get you!
Consideration of security issues
is an integral part of our design of websites,
back-end code, and hosting architecture,
not merely some last-minute addition.
