PMEL.ORG
“Illegitimi Non Carborundum”

The PMEL.ORG website was originally created in 1998 by Ernie Huffine, a retired former USAF Metrology (PMEL) School instructor and lab technician stationed at Lowry AFB, CO’s PMEL School. It was authored using the primitive (by today’s standards) tools available at the time, namely Microsoft’s “FrontPage.” Ernie has since given up the tedious tasking of maintaining websites (he was responsible for several, including one for his local Veteran’s organization). With his relinquishing duties as webmaster for the PMEL.ORG website, several of us who’d also become engaged building and maintaining websites over the years offered to keep the website and its domain name PMEL.ORG current. Beginning on 10 Sep 2017 we began our attempt at bringing the old website up to today’s standards using XARA’s “Design Publisher” as the authoring tool of choice, adding a bit of eye- candy so many have grown accustomed to seeing when visiting websites these days. We’ve just recently also renewed the domain name PMEL.ORG as well, and will be moving the website to a new server by October of 2017. We’ve elected to keep some of the website’s original content while updating it with current information given the changes through
