I’m juggling a few JSF-related projects right now. Let me bring you up to speed:

First, I’m working on the official JSF Titan review. It’s going to be pretty detailed, so it’s taking a while to get it right. I’ve gone back and redesigned the outline about 3 times now. I’m trying to strike the right balance between informative and overkill.

Another project I’m just getting started on is the JSF merchandise re-design. Everything will be redesigned using the new logo. Some items will be retired, and the product line will be more streamlined. Some like simple designs (like the current product line) and we’ll have that, but some people want more color and more visual pizzazz. If you have an idea, feel free to send any design suggestions my way.

The third project I’ve been working on is programming a simple CMS for the “Other Pictures” section of the pictures page. The current “Other Pictures” section is just a hyperlinked list of textual descriptions. The list is growing way too long, it’s ugly, it’s cumbersome and it’s a royal pain for me to add new pictures. The new system I’m working on will display thumbnails of each image along with the date. I’ll probably group them by year. Anyway, when you “mouseover” the thumbnail image, a popup will show the complete description of that image. Clicking the image will enlarge it and show the full date and description. I’ll probably also add navigation buttons to the enlarged image pages so you don’t have to return to the index if you just want to browse through them all. I may add individual image counters and a user comments system, too, but I’m undecided about that since my thread on the forum already has comments/discussion well-covered. The front-end for adding new images will be entirely web-based, so adding new photos to the web site will take mere seconds instead of several minutes. I’m excited about completing this project because it will allow me to take my picture whoredom to dizzying new heights. Whenever I can do something to please my supporters while stimulatingly further enraging my detractors, I’m all over it. 🙂 This project should be done very soon…

Tonight’s back and traps night, and I can’t wait! Last night was not a training night, and I was absolutely coming out of my skin. I know I was driving Lisa crazy, so – sorry about that, dear!
