Just finished another project…

Now that my client (John Troeller, Tattoo Artist) has approved my work and the site is live, I can post about it here…

John’s two requirements for his site were simple: No-click image display, and no pop-up windows.
The former was fairly easy using image swap and mouse over commands, while the latter proved a bit more functionally difficult to implement due to the combination of flash and html. Luckily I found a way to do it and get the site done within a reasonable amount of time. Outside of those two requirements were the general guidelines for simplicity and a darker feel. John seems happy with what I was able to produce, though personally I preferred the site with gallery pop-up windows even if it broke his “simplicity” and “no pop-up” requirements.

With this, I now have two semi-professional websites under my belt and am working on a third which will hopefully be unveiled within the next two months. This last one is a labour of love though, and will not be putting any money in my pocket. The plus side is that it will hopefully help build a stronger community of whiskey/whisky aficionados which may lead to some exciting new ventures in the future. Sooner rather than later, I hope…

Figures…

It is because I think people should be equal, but at the same time I don’t like them either.

Anniversary Celebration

Posted by on Monday, 24 July, 2006

This weekend was our big anniversary weekend. Since 2 friends had the nerve to schedule their wedding on our 10 year anniversary weekend, we had to postpone our dinner until the weekend after.

We had been thinking for quite a while as to what we had wanted to do for our 10 year. Remembering that we had just taken a trip to Victoria, B.C. in December, we couldn’t afford the time off again, so we opted to make reservations at a restaurant we had always wanted to dine at: The Hobbit in Orange.
Dinner on Saturday night…
