Where are the other CityDesk sites?

I've been corresponding with Terry Kearns (http://tk-jk.net/) for the past couple of weeks over details about working in CityDesk, off forum. We've traded insights, he's posted his at http://tk-jk.net/tk/tklog.htm. I can't believe that there's only the three of us (including Joelonsoftware.com) that have put sites built with CityDesk on the web. C'mon fellas! Post that link!

BTW, my CityDesk site is smallcase: http://www.weaverlane.com/smallcase1/index.html. What's yours?

I just tried the link above and it failed! Included was the period at the end of the sentence. Who knew?

Check out smallcase at: http://www.weaverlane.com/smallcase1/index.html

No period. and yeah, it usually takes me three or more edits to get close to being marginally acceptable and I wish I could re-write everything I ever wrote. Thanks for your patience. Now post those links.

I did another site:

http://tk-jk.net/tksguide/

This was in Import.  There was no good reason to do it except that is was never very pretty anyway, I wanted to see what import was like, I wanted to do a variable, and I wanted to see how doing the site in FrontPage compared with doing it in CityDesk.

I couldn't really see a way to use articles and loops or at least I couldn't see a way that articles would improve the site or save me work.

But, doing the menu as a variable seemed like a good idea.  The menu on the index page isn't a variable, I wanted it to be the source of my menu variable.  To change the menu I'll change the index page's menu and copy
the HTML into my .menu variable.  I used a variable for "SiteTitle" and put .SiteTitle in the HTML "title" tags.  You can see the H2's in the browser title bar.  Oh well.

Nothing special yet.
I tried to publish in French too but nothing showed up.
