New Blabberbox and Overall Layout

  I remember saying back in January that I would finish updating the News page.  Looks like I haven’t. :P Good news I managed to clean it up a bit today and put the title in the banner instead.

  Meanwhile, I finally got enough creative spark again (losing alot of those lately) to come up with a half-decent layout for the Blabberbox section.  Went the more plain but simple looking layout.  It’s mostly white but it looks relatively clean, easy to read.  Little clutter.

  Also went ahead and did away with the old navigation frame; made that more than two years ago so I don’t know why it’s lasted so long to begin with.  Decided to match the entire site to the same navigation frame as I had on the news page.  Looks good so far… though I wish I could bring the shadow effect to every page, but Internet Explorer 6 doesn’t support PNG transparency.  Most people still use that browser unfortunately.

Gameshow Maker 1.0


Gameshow Maker

  Gameshow Maker can be seen as an extension of the original Jeopardy Maker (which you should check out if you want something more basic and preconfigured).  The idea is allow you to create your own questions/answers gameshow, such as Jeopardy or Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, with little to no work on your end.   Categories, rows, columns, bonuses… Everything is done by the program.  At the absolute minimal, all you need to do is type up the questions.  For the more tech-savy user, virtually everything can be changed in the settings file including sounds, textures, fonts… Gameshow Maker is but a tool to make your presentation.  What you make with it is only limited by your imagination.

=== Improvements Over Jeopardy Maker ===
- HTML Support: Images and Formatting!
- Loadable presets, changeable layouts!
- Reposition or redesign any aspect, add image backgrounds, etc
- Removable category row, renamable buttons
- Use your own sounds/graphics
- Right/wrong answer sounds
- Much more and more to come, just request it!

  Now away from the salespitch a bit, the program is indeed extremely customizable and will only continue to be more customizable as more feature requests come in from users like you! At the moment, all settings are located in preset files.  Ideally, it would be best to have a user-friendly interface to change all settings in.  While I cannot promise a date any time soon, I would like to hope that I might find time in the near future to implement this!

Post-it Notes Videos

  My friends and I spent the few weeks working entries to Youtube’s Post-it Notes contest.  Contest says to make something creative.  In a way, we went outside the box a bit - wrapped an entire story around Post-it Notes themselves.  Credit mainly goes to my friend who came up with the initial script.


Lockers for Life

  All content once again created entirely by me - effects, post-it graphic, music, sounds, video recordings.  Only thing I didn’t do this time were the voices. :P

  Of course, subject says “Videos” so there is more than one… Feel free to also watch our Post-it Plane entry.  This was our initial attempt; gave up part way in favor of our newer video, but my friends liked this video better so you might too! :P

  Contest winners determined by public rating. Whatever, you do, remember to rate them! Help us out!  :)

Another Song - Another Day

Working on another song.  It’s supposed to be light and peaceful and meant for a video entry I’m working on.  Can’t figure out how to continue it though cause it should go up to about 2 min.

Suggestions welcome! :)

New Song - Torment

  Was just fiddling with a piano keyboard yesterday and happened to play nice a short tune.  Was not that hard to play so I figured to just wrap it up as it sounds pretty nice.  A bit gloomy, yes - maybe I’ll use it for a horror movie. :P

  It can also sort of loop if you let it repeat - it certainly doesn’t sound bad listening to over and over again.  Enjoy! :D
