Well, another month has gone by and the site gets a little bit bigger and
better. It has been quite a job taking the site from a two page startup on a
two mg freebie host to a multiple page site on a twelve mg host.I can tell
you it has been an education and a lot of fun too!
A quick note on the Java that is on the Works. I have tried to pick Java
applets that run very stable. I have tested them all on my computer by
flipping back and forth between pages, reloading pages, running other types of
programs at the same time, jumping back and forth from other sites, changing
browser settings while on the page. Just about any type or combination of
events that I could think of that a visitor might do to see if the Java applet
would act up in any way. If it did I did not use it on the site. I hate going
to sites and having my browser or worse yet my computer lock up or crash while
it loads. I will endeavor to keep my site from doing that to you.
You will find that the Robot Works is finally up and running! There is not
a lot there yet but I had to have a framework set up to run the site and that
is now in place. You can submit robot art or articles for the site and I will
post them, just as I will for Iron Works. You will also find links to real on-
line robots that you can control over the internet. Try them out! They are a
blast, and not as easy as you might think.
While working on my site I have not been keeping up with the Iron Man fan
scene on the internet and boy has that exploded! There are so many new and
great sites now that it should keep you busy for quite a while visiting them all.
There is a lot of great content out there, so much that I will not even try to
list it all here, but I would be a complete air-head not to tell you about
Advanced Iron going on-line!! They seem to have the site framework set up and
it looks to ready to be "live and in color" very soon. Just hit the Heliport
and click on the links! There is a lot of fun ahead!
"O what fine times, this age of iron!
