Welcome to the "From Prof Al's Pen" site. This site is the back-up site for all of my work online. It holds virtually all of the important files, videos, and audio files used for my classes. Without the support and friendship of Ron Pumphrey and his Shadowdezign.com Web Hosting in Sacramento, CA, the majority of this would not exist for students to use for no cost. The main site is hosted on Yahoo-Geocities and has been since 1997. I have a fondness for keeping this site active even though it's only 25MB in size, a small drop in a huge bucket of MBs that make up the whole site. Color me nostaligic.
In case you are wondering about the design concepts used on this site, I'll explain. All pages are created with Pure CSS DIV layouts, no tables and I created a DIV to hold the contact information which is usually held in a table format. All pages will pass validation for not only CSS, but HTML and Accessibility so everyone will have equal access to all of the files I've made available. "No person left behind," my new goal.
The graphics used are all from my photographs taken in Old Town Sacramento Docks. Most images came from the area of the Delta King Paddle Boat. I've been wanting to do something with the images for some time now. So I hope you like them. All the images are handled with Fireworks CS3 not PhotoShop. Fireworks is powerful enough and easy to learn for most graphic needs for a Web page. You can expect to learn more about this program from the link labeled "FW."
This site was built with Dreamweaver CS3 and CS4 which also has a page devoted to it with the link labeled "DW." And, while I'm handing out credit, you can find more about Flash CS3 Pro with the link labeled "FLA."
The image link on the left goes to my Short Story Blog.
The Main site was built in Flash Pro, mostly in Studio 8 and Flash MX 2004. I have not decided to update these files to current and future versions of Flash, they are good enough to stand on their own.
