||What we've done . . .
||We've got a fast PC and have gone back to
FrontPage2000. Not too bad now, but still has it's hick-ups!
||We're trying a new text based hit counter on the front page,
it's far more sensitive and records every time you even think about going to the page!
||We've been playing around with a small web cam and have got
the first images on the Cat Cam page. Our ISP now supports ASP, we've just got to learn
how to use it!
Moving all the data to one site (i.e. no mirrors) has meant we have had
to re register with loads of search engines and all the web rings - more work.
||As we update this page we are in the process of changing ISP
to something a little more flexible with full cgi access and Front Page extensions, but
sadly no ASP as yet. We will probably have all our URLs point to just the .com address -
it's saves loads of time in updates but does make us more dependant on the one ISP.
||Couldn't resist the temptation to register Ourbeans.co.uk as
well as the .com URL.
||Got so BORED with how S L O W
FrontPage2000 is that we have dumped it and gone back to FrontPage98. The process
wasn't that simple and there still seem to be a few bits of 2000 hanging around, but it's
certainly quicker. We might try again if we can get a better spec PC but on our current
model it's just not worth the wait.
||We finally get around to registering Ourbeans as a .com
address. We have upgraded to FrontPage2000 and are finding out new things we can do and
old things that we now can't. Overall the package seems a little slow. More details later
after we have had a chance to fully utilise its functions.
||A short .avi clip has been added to the video page to test
download speeds and resolution.
||Another Webring added. The site wins its first award! The
counter on the front page was redesigned by Bravenet.com so we had to re register and
change the code.
||Site redesigned with home made graphics and buttons, no
longer using a standard Microsoft theme.
||Java added to the default.htm page to change the greeting to
match the time of day, so before 12noon it says good Morning, before 6pm it says Good
Afternoon and after 6pm it says Good Evening. If the browser does not support Java it
leaves out the time greeting.
||Introduced a side menu with text links to key pages.
||Added two .avi sound files to the sound pages.
