Re: Took the weekend and built a web site!

Yeah, I think I got the singing cat from target a few years ago. The little kids really like it.

Re: Took the weekend and built a web site!

HTML is a pretty simple language to learn. There are a lot of books on the market, and there are many, many free sites and tutorials online. Flash is a fantastic program and allows you to do all sorts of great things. Animation, sound, interaction, etc. It's expensive, but it's really great. As for ...

Re: Took the weekend and built a web site!

No, not really. I'm more a graphic designer than a programmer. I know HTML and work a lot in Flash. Flash allows XML and arrays, so I just use folder groups with my stuff -- but my stuff is really simple.

Re: Took the weekend and built a web site!

I built the interface (pumpkins and background) in a program called "Freehand", then imported layers into PhotoShop for treatment and transparency settings. Exported from PhotoShop as PNGs, then built the site in Flash CS3. When I get some time to build the "how-to"s and other li...

Re: Electric candelabra plug question

Yes, just using a wire nut will work, but you should really be careful and secure the wires. You don't want a swinging plug-in to make the wires loose. If you're going to use the wire nut method, please wrap the whole connection in e-tape. That will grant an added level of stability to the connection.

Re: Electric candelabra plug question

A junction box, or harness box, is the safest way to go because it will seal in the individual wires, secure them all to a central set, and allow for one wall plug to come out. The cheap way to do it is to just use some electrical twist connectors and put all 5 leads, plus the wall cord lead, togeth...

Re: Electric candelabra plug question

Just get a junction box. Run all 5 wires into the box, attach to lead plate, and run a single plug wire out.

Re: Should Haunt Master Come Back To Halloween.com?

Thought I would bump this up out of curiosity. Don't know what happened, or is happening. Just don't like an unsolved mystery.

Re: I'm so hooked on this forum!

I poke around a few other forums, but they just get so messy. There's no way to keep up with everything, and it just gets hard to find what you're looking for.

I like this site. I'm learning a lot, and everyone's very nice.
