Home: Well now my new thing is portal sites. To me that means getting a free site from a company, putting up one page or so, and then seeing if that helps me in search engines. Right now I have one at Jr Wrestling and I’ll have my Yahoo / Geocities one updated sometime soon. I’ll have to get the Mark McGuinn stuff off there first. Hummm. I wonder how may other free sites I have that I don’t remember. I also had a XOOM (or something like that) a long time ago. And there was some sort of freeservers one.
Artropolis: Another client has picked one of my designs! The best part about it is it is much different from the norm and that is what has me excited about it. So far it’s going great and I’ve been able to add in some great style sheet options and every browser is showing my css content correctly! As soon as it goes live (probably weeks from now) I’ll let you all see.
Artropolis: The IMS Lofts party was awesome. They are located in a building that also includes shops and restaurants near, but not in, downtown Minneapolis. Once there we went up to the sixth floor and were handed a martini as soon as we got in. We (Aj and I) checked out the two show apartments they have open and they were amazing. Very modern and classy. All had huge windows so you could see the city and one even had a small flat screen TV in the bathroom. Along with the tours we had our drinks and some free food. The finger food was good but I don’t know what I had. All in all it was good food, great apartments and friendly people.
Artropolis: Success with Flash! My new app has cleared the first hurdle. Follow Me is an app that will allow the user to set points on the stage and then have the ability to have the points remembered so it can be re-animated later. Kind of hard to explain without giving to much away. If you want to check Follow Me out you can.
Home: I have updated my blog with my website links. Now it’s easier to find out more about me. I even updated my website with news of my new blog so more people can come see it.
Home: Invites Done?? Well we have address more invites tonight and we stuffed them all too. Phew. Now we just have to wait to send them out. Of course one or two will go out before then.
Artropolis: Ok so Flash sucks. No really but only when I get stuck. I’m trying to make an app that remembers certain spots and then when you click play it will follow along a path. I’ve got it kind of down, but with issues. If it moves diagonally it’s great but if you go in a straight line left or right, up or down, it goes whack. I don’t get it. If you have any ideas go to my website and send me an email.
On a good Flash note, the new Artropolis Portfolio is going great! Hopefully we’ll finish up the site sometime soon so I can show it off. It’s a dynamically controlled flash application using cold fusion. So far it’s awesome, especially since the graphic designer rocks!
Ok. I think i finally have this figured out and I think I was just too fast for the system when I started and that was my issue. I now have my blog set up and hosted at blooger.com for FREE!! Always a good deal!!
My idea here is to put down random thoughts and miscellaneous stuff. It may not be news worthy but I think it sounds like fun.
