May 25, 2011

Last day of class before Finals. We're getting our websites graded today (No uploads, though). I heard they're wiping our computers over the summer... :( Hope that doesn't include our H-Drives, 'cause my animation work would all be wiped out... Sadface:(.
Have a great summer, everyone~

May 23,2011

Absent for EOC testing. I'm almost done with my website anyway; hopefully I'll get a good grade on it so I can keep my A average. Wouldn't do to get blown out of the runnings for valedictorian already. I think I'll take the test as a final; I've had enough of working with posters this year unless I can think of a good idea..

May 17, 2011 and May 19, 2011

Still working on Dreamweaver. Tried to make a splash page out of a flash video with a hotspot, failed miserably. I might redesign my other pages if I have time; otherwise, I'll leave them as-is.

May 9 and May 11, 2011

I've been making my website in Dreamweaver using the 'table' technique. To be honest, I don't like the program. I mean, sure, it can help you learn HTML, but it's so basic... It seems rather limited. Blogs like this allow you to do pretty much the same thing with less work. I mean, sure, you can customize the dreamweaver site, but it's more work. Some of the stuff is hard to figure out, but most of it is alright.

Today's Work May 5, 2011

Today, we finished our flash animations and started looking into Dreamweaver. I've uploaded all of my images today (I was basically compiling information) into a Dreamweaver page, but we're learning how to make templates next time so I'll have to probably redo it. I love how Dreamweaver shows the code as you work, though. It helps you learn coding.

Ho hum.

We've gotten our final project today, which is to make a website in Adobe Dreamweaver. At least the name of the program is cool. Don't know how hard this program is, but it can't be any worse than Illustrator. That program will always be the bane of me.
On another note, finally finished my Keynote 5 minute Biology project. Jeez, that was horrible. We had to compile flash animations, keynote animations and a lot of information to get -just- 5 minutes with citation animations. Sorta cut it a bit close, really.
