The Header

Posted by Shane

So with the new found technologies of CSS3 gradients, etc. and the re-launch of this site, I been working on converting my header that was originally flash to CSS3/Javascript/jQuery. This way the header (if you remember) that is based on your location (if you shared that information) changes to the right “time of day” and will for every second change (as time does) based on the actual timer periods of your location. read more ‘The Header

One of the problems using the flash date function is that if you need to manually test a time period and ‘start’ from a certain time there really is no ‘built in’ function to force the date function not to use your system clock. I was getting frustrated that I could set the starting clock. That would still work for me to see how either the sky was being set or how many stars would appear at night time, but I needed to keep the internal clock synced as I had a lot of time checks for star removal towards the early morning period. So I cam up with a solution which I will show you how. read more ‘Internal Date Class ‘Debug’

As the lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle Littler Star go:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky.

This is now true for my flash header. After three days of looking for the perfect star animation and designing the very complex code that will add stars in intervals (or all at once if it has gotten to that point) or to remove the stars in intervals (or all of the stars if it has gotten to that point).

Flash Header Online

Posted by Shane

The very first draft of the flash header for this site is now online! If you do not have Flash 10 installed, it will ask you to download Flash 10 and install it.

If you don’t have flash at all, you will get the basic image version. I have yet to convert the static image to the same height. So you are wondering how I got this done? Well read on to find out!
