Welcome to Pages of Fun!

This is the personal Web site of Robert Wm. Gomez. I am an artist, musician and nerd living in Chicago, Illinois who has been maintaining this site (in one form or another) since 1996. Enjoy your visit!

I have not made any updates to this page lately for I have been busy during the holidays, visiting in-laws and the like. I have also been geeking-out with The Sims and Ultima 7: Serpent Isle. This week, after about a month's hiatus, I have began working on new prints. If anyone knows of a good place to buy woodcut tools (besides Graphic Chemical) here in Chicago please drop me a line.

For the first time in about 2 years I have added a new record review to my music pages! I'm not gonna tell you what I reviewed, so you'll have to search for it. Ooooo... mean web-boy do bad-bad!

I have been having problems uploading to AT&T lately. Even this little blurb was a pain to get online. Hopefully this can be resolved soon so that I can begin posting larger additions soon.

Rocktober is finally here! I'm really excited about Lair of the ManBeast's new look. Unfortunately it will not work in Netscape 4. Oh well, it probably won't be finished until Netscape 6 is out anyways.

I have begun work on Lair of the ManBeast again. I will be totally updating the engine and the look and feel. LOTMB is a role-playing game that I am developing entirely in JavaScript. The new version will incorporate a lot of what I have learned about layers and DHTML during the past year. Hopefully I will finish it this time.

As is usually the case with the WWW, I've discovered my amazing pop-up window tool tips don't work consistently across platforms. On a Macintosh (any browser) the pop-up appears just fine, but when you move the mouse off of the link, the window stays there. It will only disappear if you bring focus back to the main window, mouse back over the link, then mouse out. Rather than attempt to fix this, I will let Mac users get an extra puck-mouse workout as they click from window to window.

Today I checked the site on my Mac at work and it looks just as good as it does on my PC. I also tested it on some dinosaur browsers and, although the colors and typefaces were wrong, the content still was readable and logical. The only complaint I have gotten thus far has been from John Burgess, who says my pages take too long to load. I suspect his connection was messed up. Oh well.
