well, it only took three years but i'm finally ready to pull the trigger on the new h3images site, which until now has been kindly hosted by my brother-in-law using a bunch of ground out html and flash code that took me months to launch and was almost impossible to update without significant brain damage - thus the reason nothing new has been put up since mid- 2008. this blog, which has always meant to be the "about" section of the site was hosted separately through the squarespace platform and linked to the old site. it's all tied together now.
another problem with the old site was the galleries dependence on flash technology. the galleries in the new site aren't flash driven, so they'll work on most mobile devices that don't or won't run flash. the home page for the new site is still in flash, but mobile devices will be redirected to an html 5 alternative gallery where the images can be viewed in a slide show....a little klugy, but a heck of a lot better than the error message from the old site.
the site is still a little thin on content, and some of what's been put up is from the old site....just haven't had time to generate a bunch of new stuff. the goal will be to add four or five images a week, so it shouldn't take long to get some meat on the bones. i may be the only one that reads these posts, but if you're subscribing to the feed, the new site is actually live, it just hasn't officially been announced - you can get to him by clicking the 'home' button above or going to either h3images.com or billhughlett.com
i forgot to mention - the flash show on the home page can be controlled by the viewer - mousing over the image will reveal a strip of all images at the bottom of the large image currently being played. the slideshow is set to cycle through 16 images, spending about 8-seconds on each. there is a timer in the upper right corner of the image being played - when the circle completes, the next image transitions in.
