App 2.3–4: Click the respective yellow, red, or cyan app image to play dozens of fun activities, videos, and games created and produced by Richard G. Mills for the Exploration Station...a children's museum website! Great fun for children and adults! ( Flash required!) Bamboo, the panda, is Exploration Station's mascot. Click the juggling app for a directory of Exploration Station pages created by Mills; Flash-enabled browser users will be able to stop and restart Bamboo's juggling on that page!
App 3.2: This image uses an Anfy Java app for the fireworks plus some features provided by Mills to prevent continuous explosions!
App 4.1: Click the app video image or "Play" control to play the video presentation from Richard G. Mills's 9-page interactive resume! Pause control pauses video; play control restarts it from beginning of current section. Stop control stops and resets it to the beginning. Click the app's resume thumbnail to go to Mills's Web Design and computer section of his resume. (Use the controls at the bottom of the resume page to navigate to other pages and the table of contents.)
Both divisions are located within the head of Richard G. Mills, founder of, who feels he can be a tad flip at this point since anyone reading this far down must have a sense of humor or high endurance.
Think Mills(tm) -- Biographical Sketch, 2 Feb 2006 [cached]
Richard G. Mills         With nearly 30 years (but, then, who's counting?) of writing, editorial, business, educational, and computer-training experience,  Richard G. Mills can offer you and/or your organization a wide range of knowledge and talent.  Whether you need just copy or layouts and graphics, personal training or training materials, audiovisual, multimedia, or print, just think Mills!         Richard first began to hone his layout talents in Naperville, Illinois, as editor of his college weekly newspaper during his sophomore and junior years.  In 1969, after two years of teaching experience, he accepted a position as writer/art-director for a Chicago-based educational travel service, writing and designing travel brochures for specialized group tours throughout Europe, the then Eastern Bloc countries, and various other locales of educational and/or newsworthy interest.         In 1970, Mills became a writer and editor of home-study courses -- from air conditioning to algebra!  He moved to Chicago in 1971.  There, he went on to become a mild-mannered assistant editor of over half a dozen insurance magazines (by day) and a keyboard-backup man for an improvisational theatre group (at night).  After about five months in Los Angeles and seven months in San Francisco, he returned to Chicago, continuing his free-lance editing there for a year.         In 1974, Richard accepted a position with the Society for Visual Education as a writer/producer of multimedia instructional modules -- which utilized his writing, musical, and humor talents with such hit characters as "Sassie, the Wonder Dog," "The Lone Stranger and Pronto," "Whiz Ms.," "Super-Fred,"  and (makes his mark with a Z) "Zero" to teach math, not to mention his song sung by a TV "soap opera" character, "[Got the] Divisor Blues" (with vocal-trio and piano backup provided by Mills, himself!).  Sample dialogue-- Woman (of her husband's will): "...and he left the remainder to charity. Blues singer: "How noble of him! Woman: "Charity was his secretary!"  Blues singer: "Oh."         As a free lance since 1976, Mills has written and edited a variety of multimedia and print materials for various business and educational organizations in Chicago and across the country.  He has written two published self-help books (one on home maintenance and repair and one on skin care).  He reviewed over two dozen books for Booklist magazine.  And he has taught at all grade levels -- including post-high school -- mainly English, but also music, math, and foreign languages (none of which he actually speaks).         In the mid-1980s, Richard became interested in computers and has since taught himself several word-processing and graphics programs on three different computer systems, wired together his own doubled-up computer system, and written various computer programs -- including a talking, voice-recognition calendar and budgeting system in BASIC for personal use and a combination file-info and invoicing database program in WordPerfect Corporation's Data-Perfect for a Momence, Illinois, lawyer's office.         For the past few years, he has been teaching computer-literacy courses at the local community college (in both Mac and IBM until the college removed their Mac labs).  He has also held computer-software seminars and taught a pre-college-writing course for the college and teaches a high school remedial math course offered by the college.  He has done corporate computer training for Computer Training Associates, been called upon by clients to do computer hardware and software installation, and does beginners' computer setup, training, and consulting work.         Of course, being a generalist in this age of specialization can cause some problems.  As Mills quotes from a newsletter he wrote for one of his clients, "Keeping up with the changes can be a full-time job!"  But you can make it his job, not yours! Why not e-mail him right now while you think of it so he can start contributing his talents to you or your organization?

On September 5, 2004, Richard G. Mills joined the Kankakee Community Resource Center staff on a part-time basis, bringing with him (on-line) three sample Web pages as a suggestion for upgrading the K3CRC Web site and keeping it current. The site had news items that were over a year old, and no one had had the time to keep it up to date. Ron Jackson, the new director of the Center, liked what he saw and set Mills off to work on revamping the site.
Basing his design upon the one created by Michael L. Schultz and Jason C. Deno of Invent Horizon , Mills began renovating the K3CRC Web site that afternoon, and has been working on it more-or-less nonstop ever since!
There is a new Macromedia Flash animation on the homepage, created by Mills, with a music background he also produced, arranged, and recorded using a computer program and his attached MIDI keyboard.
(Mills is employed by Kankakee City Senior Services. He has taught computer literacy, pre-college writing, and high school math as a part-time instructor for KCC and does free-lance writing, computer consulting, and Web design.)
