MORE UP GRADES ON THE WEBSITE

I just got the new format going for the Web Site. Yup, we got the frames look going for us and there’s no turning back now. Next, I’ll get the Java scrips going, maybe some more advanced menu options going and a little CGI action, but that is latter on down the road. Anyway, we got frames and this means I can keep the huge image map without having someone with a slow-ass connection trying to reload that thing every time they change pages.

A FACE LIFT FOR THE OLD WEBSITE

Yes, after almost 3 months of being off-line and no HTML replacement code, it was time to get the site back up and running again. Not that anyone really reads this stuff anyway, it would be nice that the one or two people who do, would have something different to look at every now and then. So here it is. Of course, it is all going to be done when ever I get free time.

PHOTO PAGE IS UP NOW

I finely got that darn photo page up and running. It took a while because the software I was using before was so outdated and cumbersome that I finely gave up on it. Now I use “gThumb Image Viewer” by Gnome [LINUX!!!!!], offered through LINUX RedHat-9, the processes has now being a pleasure rather than a chore. The results are very nice and a huge time savings.

Today is the unofficial day for the weBlog. The unveiling of this is currently on my local server: Shaw.ca. They will not give me any web support or add PHP and a simple database to my website because of their fear of security breaches. To bad, I was going to pay more for it! Oh well…..

Added Feb 9th 2004
I believe that I have found a proper sever to put my weBlog onto. I’ll know in a short while what is going on with that. I guess I’ll need to buy me domain name and see what exactly I need to sort the weBlog with. Getting the right package is going to be a learning curve for me.
