NewEgg Update

Okay, my initial frustration over my NewEgg order has been diminished a little. I was offered ten dollars off of a comparable product and went ahead and ordered a larger flash card. I hope my ancient Canon Powershot can handle a 512MB card. It has already destroyed a 256MB PQI card and I was concerned that it was size limited. Anyhow, I will following the tracking info to the minute if I have to this time.

Major Overhaul of the Site in Progress

What the heck happened to my site?! Well, in an effort to kick my butt in gear, and force myself to reorganize and redesign my site.

I've stripped out the look-and-feel elements and will slowly be working on applying an automated system of templates. I will also be deleting and or rearranging sections to help reign in some of the urban sprawl of my site architecture. This is a bit of an experiment. It's somewhat unsual to put the design process of a site out in the open. This should be interesting... check back soon for updates.

After much trial and error I have retooled how Flash animations are inserted into my web pages. There were problems with animations not appearing on Macs or in Opera 5. If you have Flash 4 and still cannot view the movies drop me a line and please let me know what browser and platform you are using.

One of the dangers of having a web site is that your email is accessible to complete strangers. A recent visitor to my Life Drawing Page unwillingly sent me the SirCam Virus which I stupidly ran and which I also stupidly tried to get rid of without reading about it. Fortunately, with the help of Craig, I was able to clean up my computer and keep the fun rollin'.
