Yes, another website.........

I was never really happy with the last ones, just too fiddly and scattered. So this time I went for quirky, clean, simplistic, yet interesting and animated without waiting for flash etc to load.

I think I found a happy medium. Thought I'd post here, can't be arsed to post it anywhere else really.

Anyway, Its not finished yet, loads of content to go in there and a few suprises, but the structure is sort of there. I added the Silverlight Photoshow of old which will soon be updated - honest! You'll find that under Photography Section -> Gallery Miscellany, and just click the link or arrow.

As for the Eric's section, I have some nice content for that. I just got permission to use some exclusive photos too........

Have a nose, ideas and opinions always welcome.

I managed to look at the site yesterday, I like the quotations under the photo's. (I assume the Wirral and Liverpool pics will have a title as to where they are though, when that section is complete).

Also, I noticed, that when I click on a pic to get a close up, I cannot move the image around, as the top of the image is missing.

Unfortunately, I cannot logon to the site today, getting the following message.

I believe that there has been a server issue and see that the team are working on it Nigel. Just have to see how it goes......

As for the photo issue, its early days and still learning code. I'd love to embed the Silverlight versions from the original site, but havent quite mastered it yet.

But I will.......

Thanks Neil, tis back online. A lesson learned.....

Anyway, Nigel, will be working on that issue, but to be honest the template I'm using has a load of mathematics involed (and it uses Ajax which I have little idea of) so it'll be trial and error. But I think the impact is great, though I'm trying different ideas till I'm happy.

May well be starting on the 'Eric's' section this weekend too......
