|6/19/10 - Getting this new layout ready. I went through
various ideas and eventually settled on this new neon look, which seems
to suit a night time theme. Most of the remaining work is just in
rebuilding the galleries and info sections.
6/1/10 - The reasons I started working on this place again included the
experience, and to keep trying out new things. Some of those new
things will come in future sites. For this month, during which ML
will turn 9, I'm going to make some big changes to the layout and
navigation. The iframe I've built the site around is troublesome
at times (can't...breathe!), and I believe I have a better way.
The current site will remain up, I'll just switch over to the new
design when it's ready.
5/23/10 - For a very long time, and through
different site versions, I
had the same 4 wallpapers up, no bigger than 800x600. I've put
them back up on a new page, along with something new. With the
summer nearly upon us and vacation photos to use, I borrowed Tsunami,
Sasami and Ryo-Ohki to put them on a real beach. Expect more new
wallpapers in the near future.
5/20/10 - A while back, this site got a few awards. I've put
those up on a new page. In the process of looking up the sites of
those who gave me the awards, and learning late about the fate of
GeoCities, I stumbled upon something. A place dedicated to
archiving and preserving the internet from different points in
time. Now, this likely isn't news to many, but I thought it was
incredible to be able to type in my own URL and see snapshots of my
site from 2002 through 2008, even if the images and links aren't always
in working order. There were things that I had believed to be
long gone, including the forums I had at ezboard as they were before
being destroyed. I found results for all three sites where the
awards came from. I saw sites for major products and brands as
they looked in 1996. I'm kind of a geek but I think it's pretty
cool, and if you're interested and have specific URLs to search for,
check out the Wayback
Machine at http://www.archive.org/.
like a museum trip.
