So you've somehow stumbled upon this site wondering what the heck it is... Well I guess the answer depends more upon what were you expecting to find, Vayl for 14 years was a small northern California consulting firm specializing in IT Sales and Technical Support eventually moving to Solution Artictect roles.
That changed a bit in 2011 as I went to work as a UC Architect for a West coast based Health Care system and then later working as Microsoft employee in Unified Communications. Vayl transitioned to game design and hosting of speciality projects. If you've browsed to the site via seeing the license plate or perhaps the phone numbers or word of mouth this front page may be confusing to you as the various projects are all more subdomain based and thus not visible to the spiders of Bing and Google.
