So what have I been up to all this time, if I wasn’t pushing my van around Alaska in the winter? Well, I’ve been updating my website/s, giving them some new content and a slight aesthetic overhaul as well. Nothing too major, but learning a few things about design and tweaking some little things. One of things I’ve been working on is integrating a coding technique called “Flash” into the web pages. It’s pretty cool, though I know some web users are averse to Flash stuff.
For all you “non-web-design” people (i.e., my dad) “Flash” is the software used to make these cool little automated slideshows like you’ll see if you check out the home page of this website right now! The home page of course, is here. Looks pretty cool, eh? I did that, all by myself! Also, how about those rounded corners on the table on the left side? Fancy stuff. And I’m not even showing off – yet. 🙂 I re-did my Recent Work webpage.
I also added a short slide show on my backpacking website, Expeditions Alaska. On that site, I also re-did my Eye of the Beholder webpage, and will be making a few small tweaks on one or 2 other pages soon, too. I hope you like them.
I’m also working on another slideshow, but I’ve got a few things to tweak before it goes public – I’m really excited about putting it on the site, but have to finalise a few details first.
I also added a bunch of new images to this website from this past summer/fall. So how do you find all the new images on my website? Easy, mon frere. Go to this page, type “Carl” in the Search box (sans the brackets), and “60” in the “Newer than XX Days” box. Presto! You should be taken to a gallery that displays all the images I uploaded to my site in the last 60 days. If you want to just look around, I’ve re-configured the galleries to display images in the order they were added, ,so each gallery will show the most recently added images first, so check them out.
From memory I think I added images to the following Alaska pages:
And under Adventures there are new images in these galleries:
I’ve added a few other images here and there as well, but I think those are the main ones. I’ll have some more images coming online in the next 2 weeks or so, I hope, if I get some old scans worked up. We’ll see if that gets worked into the incipient holiday madness. In the meantime, this stuff should give you plenty to look at.
The photo posted above here was from this past September, when I visited Katmai National Park with my parents. I wish I was smart enough to figure how to do a little slideshow here on the blog, but I fear that’s beyond me for now. 🙂
Thanks for your patience while I’ve been offline.
