Long over due web development

I am putting some simple slide shows on the pages.  The slide shows are being developed in Adobe CS4 Encore. I have stayed away from Flash development on my web pages for some time.  I am getting into Flash development because more clients want it on their sites.  I am still focusing my efforts on W3C compliant pages that are simple and easy to read. Flash slide shows also remove the need to have a gallery or another page with a bunch of images for the casual web site visitor.



I'm going to finish up this weekend and add some slide shows of my artwork to the LauniArt site

So in that moment I relized that what I had been waiting fo was truly in my hands.  I wanted to get a MacBook Pro not because I wanted to run the Mac OS only. I wanted a MacBook Pro because I believe Apple Computer has finally got it right, they have harnessed the Intel processor, good industrial design and BSD with the Apple brand.  I have been waiting to come back to a Mac for 10 years.  I ahve waited for a computer to truly keep up with me and do exactly what I want all on one piece of h…

Launiart.com/blog is now back to lonnie.wormley.org

My experiment with having a design blog and a personal blog has ended.  I do not have enough time to maintain two blogs.  So I have merged my personal blog back to this URL where it was for several years.  The migration was very simple thanks to WordPress. I'll bet the original Screws in my coffee banner back soon.



I'll use the launiart.com for art and nothing else.
