I've been taking advantage of time spent indoors during all the snow and ice storms, to work on some long-neglected areas of this website! There is still more to do -- there always will be! -- but so far I've worked on:
- music page: made a table for presenting the different types of info for each band, with all the info in a database. Soon I'll add music players of select tracks in there...right now, it's just a link.
- web design page: for my portfolio, I set up a column on the left, and a big preview frame to the right. Added descriptions and features.
- history page: entitled sections "personal" and "musical performance"; updated both sections
- header: I also final got rid of that ancient image in the header! I'm playing around with slideshows...
- links page: weeded out outdated links.
- added a new background too! Similar colors, but different. :)
I've rediscovered the joy of web design and coding. I'm often reluctant to devote a chunk of time to learning a new web design skill, but I do want to up my game, and maybe get some new clients.
I welcome any suggestions or tips!
In the last 6 months, I've started playing with 2 different bands:
- Ne Plus Ultra Jass Orchestra -- big band playing elaborate, arrangements of the 20s and 30s
- Bilgerats & Pyrettes -- pirate-themed band, costumes and all! Great singers, and fun people with theatrical backgrounds
