What’s New And Things To Come

texansinc.comI thought this would be a good time to clue everyone in on my recent and future exploits. I’ve been putting a good deal of time into my beloved side-project, texansinc.com, toying around with Flash animation. Since that site doesn’t receive the same volume of visitors that flock to tvlamps.net I’m a little more comfortable using it as a test-bed, a place to make risky changes that might not work properly or simply look bad. (20/20 hindsight and all) As my “bravery quotient” increases I’ll no doubt apply Flash to tvlamps.net as well. At the present time, the texansinc.com header (title graphic) does indeed have a certain goofy quality, and I’ll definitely change it this week. My experience with Flash goes back all of 48 hours, so forgive any “issues” with the pages as I claw my way up the learning curve. Besides the funky moving header on the main page, I’ve also applied a little Flash work to the “71 Fire” page. (shown above) Previously, to view the fire movie footage one clicked on a link that would, hopefully, cause the .mpg file to play from the visitors default movie player. Now the clip is embedded into the page with Flash, a handy play button residing below it.
Adobe Flash is neat stuff, capable of providing all sorts of effects for websites. But in order to view them properly one must have the appropriate version of Flash Player installed on their computer. Most everyone has one version or the other already in place (whether they know it or not!), but Flash Player 9 is needed to work on texansinc.com. (a free download, link to which is provided on the “fire” page) I’d appreciate hearing your opinion regarding the changes, positive or otherwise.
So my upcoming activities will include learning more about Flash, making some subtle appearance changes and functionality upgrades. I’m also going to put in some long-needed work into the TV Lamp Store, which I’ve been neglecting for months. I’ve got a zillion lamps (give or take a few) to photograph and add to the store, and I will begin posting those later this week. That’s all for now!

    Wow, I don’t know what to say after all those compliments… you’re too kind! I’m in the process of making a page about Texans’ designer, Howard Kron, and should have it posted in a few days. I’ve got a lot of things to add to texansinc.com, so keep watching!
