#30907 - 12/17/0205:57 AMRe: First draft is up
I just viewed it on my pc at the office and it came up nice and snappy and looks good. There were even some popups that intruded. But, what else is new?<br>I won't mention a thing about the small type.<br>Otherwise, best of luck and " naches" on your new venture. It will surely be a success.<br><br>
Thanks for all the helpful feedback, everyone. Lots of good comments. And thanks for the encouragement, too.<br><br>Gizmo, maybe it's time to trade in that fancy new monitor but, the text is now a point larger (and — bless you Sherm — that typo is fixed), color has been corrected, and best of all, the [color:orange]eleven22.biz</font color=orange> is live as of this AM. <br><br>Now all I need is a few paying customers! <br><br>
Sorry, I wasn't clear, I was viewing it on my iBook, not my G4... however, making the type in Flash format will improve the crispness and especially when printed. But now that I look again on my "fancy new monitor" it looks fine! <br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

Not bad for a non-web designer...ha!<br><br>Anyway, only one thing really bothers me (I can read the very small type, after all )- the 'eleven22' logo in the beginning (Flash?) seems to 'expand' when it moves on to the HTML page- that is, the kerning seems to increase between the letters in the word 'eleven' as the next page with the address info on the bottom loads up...<br><br>What up wid dat?<br><br>Otherwise, great job- let me know if ya need any freelance web designers- I'm cheap, and closer to NYC than any of these other hosers!<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
A friend who's really good at this stuff — does her own coding — is gonna remake the whole site for me when she returns from an extended trip. In the meantime, I'll use what I've got as a beta to play with, so when she's ready, I'll have the concept fleshed out and ready for her to work with. Hell, I built this thing with PageMill and Pshop. Down and dirty!<br><br>
Pagemill? OMG!<br><br>If you like, may I suggest to your friend that you might want to consider building your site a little like my own- have that initial browser window with the logo and maybe some address info, and then have a new, size-controlled pop-up window open up with the actual site in it..<br><br>I like working this way because it gives me total control over what the viewer sees, and I can have stuff bleed off the screen and such...<br> <br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
Hey! It's an antique — be worth a fortune some day. Ah don't need no steenkin' GoLive. <br><br>I'm a simplicity freak. Don't like too many bells and whistles, moving parts, pop-ups, etc. I just want a viewer to be able to scoot thru my site in a linear fashion and with as little distraction as possible. I see as lot of sites that have stuff going on only because it's possible instead of because it adds value.<br><br>What I hope to achieve is basically the same site, just a lot crisper and more fluid han what it it right now.<br><br>
Well, I didn't think one pop-up was too much in the way of 'bells' or 'whistles', but 'straight-through' browsing does have its benefits I guess.<br><br>Good luck!<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
