Well I haven't been here much recently, the reason being that I finally got around to buying an iPad2. I have been having a great time seeing just what was possible on this little tablet, and I am very impressed.
I have now created a blog where I am displaying some of my iPad creations. Link just below
I hope you can spare a moment to have a look
And now I have added a couple more images to the Blender 3D Gallery. These images were created using the new Blender 2.57a, which is now officially out of beta.
Just added a new image to my Blender 3D Gallery. The image was created using the new Blender 2.56, which is very close to coming out of beta.
When I first started with Zazzle, they were only in the US and only did posters, but now they have a wider range of products and they are also in many countries, so I will be adding new stuff and increasing the range of goods available. Watch this space.
In the meantime, if there is anything particular you would like to have available send me an e-mail
I have switched to PSPad for editing the pages. I really liked the autocomplete in NetBeans, but it was not really designed for working with web pages and didn't really handle a web based project very well.
PSPad is very good at dealing with a web project even if its FTP support is very minimal. The biggest advantage that it has for me is the fact that it can be run from a USB thumbdrive. I now have a completeley portable set up for working with web pages.
To overcome the weak FTP support in PSPad, I have added portable versions of FileZilla and WinSCP. Portable Gimp gives me image editing, and Toucan lets me create backups to whichever computer I happen to be working on. PSPad has good CSS support but I am also playing with Oiko CSS, yes another portable application.
For previewing the pages, I have portable versions of FireFox, Opera, SeaMonkey and Google Chrome, plus of course most host computers have IE installed. I also have a portable web host (UniServer) installed, for checking any server side scripting etc.
Once again I have moved to a different development tool. For ages I have been wanting to update my site to use CSS instead of tables for layout. I actually did the home page months ago using Expression. It took ages and I wasn't getting a grasp of how the CSS worked
I played around with a few HTML editors and I think I have settled for NetBeans. I created a new stylesheet for the site and a basic template page. I decided to use the news page to try them out and this is the result
I have also modified the colours slightly. Somehow I managed to get the page to be W3C compatible, it was very pleasing when the page validated. I must say that I certainly do not miss all of those table tags. I think that it was only dealing with all of the nested tables that was forcing me to stay with a wysywig editor
I am finding it very easy to add content to the page with a HTML editor, (now that I have the stylesheet worked out. The reason I am using NetBeans is that it appears to have the best auto complete of all the editors that I have tried. And of course it is free
