Talking www.tincanluv.com

Wow! How exciting for us. LOL. I bought a cheap web design ket at Best Buy yesterday to play with since the only option on the television was Superbowl, or sappy drama marathons. A few hours later We had us a website!

It's crazy to look at, as I was just trying it out, didn't expect it to work so darn fast! It needs a lot of changes, and I have to figure out how to get rid of that music, (just playing around), and add a few more pages...but Oh My Goodness, we have a website....

Check it out....


Thanks Ron and Tony!

New Webiste

Ron,
Congratulations on your neat website! I love it.
But please do something about the music. I thought my hard drive was dying with all the clicking and clacking.

Oh my god, I'm laughing SO hard. I don't know what I was thinking. I wanted something funky, and well it needs to go....

Thanks though, just a rough draft....very rough.

Ron

Talking Congratulations!

Isn't all this technology great?
Except of course in our old airstreams!

It's awesome, It just ticks me off that I created a website, in three hours yesterday, and today, after four hours, I wasn't able to figure out how to create an animated avitar.....

Don -- that is clapping. Minnesota's most widely played polka* is always accompanied by clapping! (*the Minnesota Golden Gopher Rouser or fight song is a polka y'all)

tcl -- see How To Animate Your Avatar for some ideas. My knockoff of a 22' CCD and a Southwest Airlines Shamu theme was worked out in Paint (bitmap). Graphic Convertor from http://www.graphic-converter.net/ cost me about $19 and allows one to change between formats. I changed the .bmp file to .jpg and used some photo software to change it to a size for an avatar. Using Graphic Convertor again I changed that into a .gif file.

I'd read about unFREEz being very easy to use to convert .gif files to animation. I googled until I found http://www.whitsoftdev.com/unfreez/ and that seemed pretty secure to me.

Try it -- it'll keep you up nights!

Hi Ron & Tony! Thumbs up for the website. Do you guys know how lucky you are to have found two AS in a week?! Not that I blame you, if I ran across any around here and could scrape up the money I'd drag every one I could find home too. Love your Safari, reminds me of home (our Caravel). Enjoy!

Thanks Bob! I'll have to try that out. If I get too confused I give up though. I'll have to try that out. I just want to make my hand wave, thought it would be simple.

i actually followed the how to animate an avatar, but didn't get very far. Will try it again.

you guys are all great!!!

Thanks for the comments on the website. I'm having fun working on the next less anoying one....



Ron & TOny

This looks short on info. I created 4 individual images that would be used as frames in unFREEz. When I used the latter to string together the animation, I ran those frames in sequence 1-2-3-4-3-2-1. (I could have done it in sequence 1-2-3-4-3-2 -- you'll get it pretty easily if you play around) You get to set the delay between each frame in order to make the animation proceed at the speed you like.

Allowed avatar size is the same as thumbnails at AirstreamPhotos.com -- which is 100 x 75 pixels.

Ron, Don't consider yourself a web expert just yet. When I clicked the Contact Us button on your site the mail-to address shows up as "your@address.here." I assume that's the default in the software you purchased. You need to change the "mailto:" string to your real e-mail address so people can contact you.

Other than that, the site looks very nice. Fortunately, my speakers are playing the satellite TV feed, so I didn't hear any music from your site. If you haven't done so already, please delete the music. Web sites that play music for no reason are cheesy, and the music is invariably nothing more than a waste of bandwidth.

Keep it simple.

I have to say, I get irritated when I go to Inlands sight. The music doesn't do anything for me....NO OFFENSE!!!

I figured there would be a glitch somewhere. Actually, give me a couple days, I have a replacement in the works. Without music.

Web expert...HAHAHAHA. Although my entire life has been converted from redoing my house (I rehabed it after I bought it two years ago, and have completely redone at least 3 rooms. I get bored.) and being a couch potato, to a computer freak, who's main focus is airstreamforums.com..


I love it here.... Hope I don't get voted out

Good Job on 1st Web Site

Y'all have a lot of 'spunk'. It is encouraging to see the effort y'all are putting into your new found 'hobby?!"/life-style. It took us years to find something as enjoyable as A/S trailering, hope you enjoy it as much as the years go by.

To paraphrase Big Dee "Life is short, the road is long, what are you waiting for"...that is our own twist....
-Ed
P.S.: Lose the music!!!!
