Highslide JS

Jack created his own web site several years ago, but Steve created this one. (So, I say "us" and "we," but it's really me, Steve, who is responsible for all this.)

I created this site for several reasons:

This site was pretty much coded from scratch. Much of the JavaScript was written by me, with extra bells and whistles courtesy of The JavaScript Source and other sites. The navigation bar (to your left, you can't miss it) uses jQuery, a new JavaScript technology. Zoomed photos were enabled using FancyZoom and these introductory boxes were created using Highslide.

Until November 2008, all the graphics were created and/or tweaked using Microsoft Paint. Yes, Paint. You can laugh and point now ... but at least I also had the resizing capability of ThumbsPlus. I now have Photoshop, so I'm in the process of updating the graphics as needed.

Part of my reason for doing this site is to learn and try out various techniques, so there's a lot of Easter eggs to discover here: image maps, hidden frames, zoomed photos, animated GIFs, alerts, etc. Just keep poking around and you'll find them all.

Have fun!
