Check the Forum

July 24th, 2005

I just wanted to let everyone know I posted a few photos Aunt Kim sent me of a little construction project they did. Check the Family area of the epkphoto.com Forum to see them. Also, I am nearing completion of the first part of my site redesign. I think I'll apply the new look to the Main page first and slowly phase it in other sections of the site as I hear feedback.

Comments

July 19th, 2005

As I strive to post to my web log more often, more people will become aware that I am doing so and will check the site more often :). So, if you are one of those people, remember you can always comment on anything regarding this website (or anything else, for that matter) in the epkphoto.com Forum. Eventually I may add comment functionality to the blog itself. Perhaps I may even cave in and install some open source blog software on my site instead of hand coding a solution. The possibilities are endless! :p

More about the update

July 18th, 2005

The site update I am working on is coming along smoothly. Perhaps it won't be too long until I implement it. I am thinking of taking things on page at a time…with the main page first. Then I can apply the new look to other pages when I know they'll look right. The main benefits of the redesign will be: allowing the site to resize based on the browser width to accommodate people with high resolution displays without leaving low res users behind, the site will look acceptable when printed, increased flexibility on my end to add new features and content. The picture with this post gives you a tiny preview of what to expect. :p

Site update in the works

July 16th, 2005

I am currently working on an update to the website's look and feel. The basic code that currently makes things run is in pretty good shape. The forum and user log in system seems to work (there are a couple glitches, though). So at this point, I want to make the site itself look better, not just run better. I am going to ditch the black background in favor of something more printable and readable. It may take a few weeks before the changes go live, but look for it soon 🙂

Time for a post

July 13th, 2005

I really need to update more often…all in good time. Well, things are going well this summer as I continue working in the tech department at my former high school before I set off to RIT in August. Mozilla Org. has released updates to Firefox and Thunderbird (now v.1.0.5). You really need to try these programs if you haven't yet. But, of course, you would have done so already if you regularly browse my site :p. I hope more photos of the new kittens are to come!
