More Updates

There are still more updates and many more to come. Today's list.

1. Email addresses now turn into email links - simply type them in your journal just as you would any other link. e.g. junkmail@elmwoodstrip.com Sorry this took so long.

2. The main pages load much faster.

3. You can email a journal to anyone by clicking on the little envelope next to the journal and fillign out the little form.

4. The stars are finally fixed and reset at midnight instead of 3am.

5. There are now start-up sounds to the site. Whenever you sign on for the first time without shutting down your browser you will hear a (e:strip) startup noise. There will be a contest later this week to design the best sound so start thinking. It can be a .wav or .mp3 up to 15kb.

6. The logos are varied and random. Me and Mattehw made a bunch of them. There are many more to come, as well as, a user logo contest later next week.

7. It finally tells you when you are on a dated journal page. E.g. the title at the top says "Elmwood's journal from March, 2004"

8. As requested by falling4autumn, each front page now displays the last ten journals instea dof the last 30 days. This reduces load time but also, allows people who haven't updated in a while to have something.

More to come ...

Celebrate Good Times

This is a crazy optical illusion I made. It really looks like the letter "e" is moving but it is not.

Updates Continued

I am trying to get the site done so that the new version is easily and infinitly updateable. Unfortunately, I don' live by myself on an island and my roomates won't let me just continously work work work. Please stay tuned. Some features may not work yet. Many do. You definatly can update using your quickUpdate control panel. I believe the regular updat epage works as well. Have fun and thanks for your patience.

Still Updating

Sorry about all the construction. It should be finished soon. In the meantime you can still update. It will just look funky on the update page. It's best if you use the quickupdate link at the top. This will allow you to update in the little pop up window.

By the way if you want to check out my new example of using flash in a journal. Go to paul's journal and click on the oyster.

Mess Ups

The site looks messed up because I am changing it and I'm too tired to finish. It still works. Email me if you have any trouble.

I should be able to fix it tomorrow. Then matthew can do his photoshop magic. Sorry for he inconvenience. I realize there are a couple of serious graphical errors.

New Feature

For a pre v2.0 surprise I decided to let everyone have flash capability on their journals. I know its hard to keep up with so many features but . . . Depending on how it goes I will decide about its long term viability. Right now your .swf file will be required to be under 100k. They will also have to be formatted to fit 400 x 300 pixels. If not they will get auto reforatted to 400 x 300 pixels.

This should satisify most people need for interactivity, sounds and animation. I am also thinking about hosting a (e:strip) basic flash class over spring break one day.

To add flash to you journal, simply use the Flash upload form located under your journal publish form on your write page. Have fun.

“Environmental Racism in New York State”

TOMORROW!

Press conference in downtown Buffalo this Thursday at 11 am! Citizens’ Environmental Coalition and the Toxic Waste/Lupus, along with a coalition of groups across New York State, will release a new report. “Environmental Racism in New York State”
When: Thursday, March 11, 2004 - 11:00 a.m.

Where: Outside the Donovan State Office Building
125 Main Street
Buffalo, NY

Why: The Department of Environmental Conservation’s Environmental Justice policy, while citing improvements in citizen participation in environmental justice communities, fails to correct current siting policy, which could continue the past practice of disproportionately
siting polluting facilities in communities of the poor. This practice causes certain segments of society to bear an unfair toxic burden.

Scheduled speakers include: Amy Liberatore, Citizens’ Environmental Coaltion; Judith Anderson, Toxic Waste / Lupus Coalition, and a representative from Erie County Legislator George (Butch) Holt’s office.
Supporters from Assemblymember Crystal Peoples’ office will also attend. CEC will provide signs for those who wish to hold one.

DIRECTIONS: Donovan Building, take Main Street all the way down to the “T” intersection (you can’t go any farther). Make a right turn and come down Washington. Donovan Building’s Washington entrance is just across from the Buffalo News building.
