Marketing Your Web Sites

If you're really into web design or graphics, you probably know how important it is for people to find your work. Well that's where your marketing skills come in to play. I'm not going to give the 101's on marketing here, but what I am going to do is give a you a link to a place that offers user-voted marketing content.

http://sphinn.com/

I've found some very good information within only a few seconds of being on that website. Perhaps in the future I will create an e-Marketing 101 guide for you though. I have virtually no money and have done all marketing by the book and without that which most consider essential money. That's right, I know how to be cheap, so cheap in fact that I wouldn't pay any money for some of my strategies, and if there's no price on them, that makes them priceless. You will have priceless strategies from me for free.

Caligraphy Tool Test

I wanted to test out the Caligraphy Tool in GIMP vs Project Dogwaffle. I've found that I prefer the Dogwaffle tool over the GIMP tool, although the GIMP tool is interesting too. I drew a character in each program and posted them here so you could compare them as well.

USING GIMP TOOL
(Reproduced Chinese word for "LUCK")
Below was using the Tempura brush tool
(not a real Chinese character)

I found that the marks were more smooth in Project Dogwaffle, but more controllable in GIMP. Both produce desirable results!

You can download GIMP for free here:

Digg Buttons For Your Blogspot Blog!

I just put some "Digg" buttons on my site, in case you're wondering how to do it for your Blogspot blog too, here's the link that showed me how.

Back to LiveWriter!

It's been a while since I've used Windows

livewriter

I've missed Live Writer. It makes so easy. Not that I want to be lazy, but that I want to do more in the same amount of time. Now I can toggle between many blogs at once! The only one it doesn't work for is my custom made blog, Chexed.com. It works for any blogger blog or blog.

I included the screenshot above so you can see just how easy it makes things! The only reason I stopped using it is because I reformatted my computer (because I got a virus :()

Things are rock'n'rollin again!

VerveEarth.com

Verve Earth helps bloggers connect with the world based on location, visually. The creators of this website apparently utilized the Google Maps API.



Now the only support one blog at a time, so I could only add one. I added it at the bottom of my Chexed blogspot blog... I would have added it in another place if the image didn't have to be so big! It's in beta, so it's understandable though.

Free Vector Graphics Adobe Illustrator Alternative

The name: Inkscape
The site: http://inkscape.org/

What it does:
Allows you to make advanced vector graphics. In case you don't know what vector graphics are. They're basically (theoretically infinitely?) scalable images. Generally, they look kind of cartoonish, but still serve a great number of purposes. I believe the reason entertaining videos and animations are done so fluidly in flash is by using vector graphics.

Is it free: Of course. Free download.
What operating systems does it run on currently? Check here to be up to date.

Sample work that I did:



If you're ever searching for a tool that you're used to in Adobe Illustrator and aren't sure what it's called in Inkscape, make before to check out the Inkscape wiki, especially the AdobeToolMap page.

Dogwaffle Basic Animation Tutorial



When you save the animation, it will save as a TARGA file (.tga). When opening the file, you will have to open the folder and select the entire series of animations and open them together (saving the TARGA sequence breaks the file up into individual frames, apparently). This is for the free version of Project Dogwaffle, but should work for the pro version as well.

Call of Duty 4 Demo Free + Cheats Link

After downloading the 1.4GB Demo of Call of Duty 4, I've tested it and decided it is well deserved of the awesome reviews.



There's also plenty of screen shots of the game too.

Here's an awesome list of cheats for COD4 I tried them myself after beating it on veteran. They work great!

To add to that list of cheats is "player_sustainAmmo 1" without the quotes will give you infinite ammo.

Yahoo Domain Name Evaluation and Review

I've been using some Yahoo services for a long time.

At the small business section on Yahoo.com, you can get domain registration for 9.99. With a little digging, you can find it for $1.99!

After the $1.99 domain fee, it will most likely go up to 9.99 per year, which is about average and not an unfair price. However, the best part about yahoo domains in my professional opinion, is the reliability and credibility. If you're buying a domain that's important to you, I wouldn't go with a Joe Shmoe. I'd do that for your back-up domains, your extra domains, but not your most important ones. Joe Shmoe sometimes goes on vacation when your website crashes. Yahoo has a huge team of people who take turns vacationing.

Overall, I give Yahoo Domains a thumbs up!

How TO Create a Custom Flickr Slideshow


I'm using the "Embed Flash Flickr" option, rather than framing it.

I found a very quick tutorial of how to do to make your own flickr slideshow over in Paul Stamatiou's neck of the woods.

You can change the keyword to what ever you have keywords for on your flickr account.

You Need to know your numerical ID for this, if you replace it with your USERNAME it will not work. If you need to know your numerical flicker ID with the @at symbol, you can get it here.

Finally Peace Between South and North Korea!

According to the associated press, great things are happening with the Korea's! North Korea is disabling its nuclear program. That's fantastic.
Source: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071004/ap_on_re_as/koreas_summit

This is amazing news. Finally, a huge step comes along in the world that will aide more people in getting along! Lets all be friends! As funny as that may sound, I'm serious. I've been waiting for a breath of fresh air from the world like this for years. I'm astonished and proud of my fellow humans. *Pats South Korean President, Roh Moo-hyun and North Korean ruler/leader Kim Jong Il on the back* You guys almost got me teary-eyed.

On a note that's not so serious... (Although Starcraft should be taken seriously!)
Hopefully the North Koreans will join in the community, that would spell BIG NEWS for electronic sports fans world wide.

In case you didn't know, South Korea has some of the best (and arguable the best) Starcraft: Broodwars players in the world.

Get Paid for Your Photos

I just wanted to share this with fellow computer graphic (or traditional) artists and photographers looking to make an extra buck, or at the very least, not let "the man" have all of our hard work for free on our social networking sites.

Get Paid for Sharing Your Photos and Images

It seems earning money on those websites within that link is somewhat of a tedious process, not necessarily hard though. It just takes time... But I expected that because that's how social networking works in the first place, like using myspace... I started off with 1 friend and it can take years to get just a few hundred friends (I used to be on it a lot though so I got a little under 2 thousand). I hope what you'll find in that link helps you out and I hope it helps me out as well!

How To Space on your Computer Hard Drive

I was just looking for a file on my computer. I tried searching by file extension and realized I have a LOT of duplicate files. Really though, you can just go to start, click search, then search your computer for files with "a" in them or "z" or "wmv" or "avi" and press on search, then you'll get the results of which you can arrange by file size. Eliminate duplicates if you wish or if you want just get rid of the really monstrously huge files.

Dogwaffle Animation Tips

A few basic tips in Project Dogwaffle animation.

Dogwaffle Video Tutorial Basic Animation

This video tutorial shows the very basics of how to animate in Project Dogwaffle (you may need to pause it here and there because it goes a little fast). This video does not show you how to save the file.

Saving Files Using Free Dogwaffle

I made my first non-animated Dogwaffle image to test out the tools and features and couldn't figure out how to save it correctly.



If you notice the file isn't saving correctly, make sure you have the entire image area selected, or it will save ONLY what you have selected by default.

Once you save it, it will Targa format (.tga), now to convert this file into something usable, such as gif, png, jpeg (jpg) or other, you can use another free program Paint.NET which can open up the tga file and resave it in a more useful format for sharing it.

You can get the free version of Project Dogwaffle here.

Starcraft Should Be exclusively on PC & PS3

As much as people sometimes bash Microsoft, I still like it over all so it may shock you to hear what I'm about to say.

With the high popularity of HALO3, that's giving XBOX a huge competitive advantage over the Nintendo WII and the Sony Playstation III (PS3). Nintendo is probably safe with it's own niche market because they offer something really different.

My beloved PS3 however, I fear RPG's are too common a game genre to keep PS3 afloat as a gaming machine, the blu-ray gives it a huge boost for movies, but ultimately the PS3 is a gaming machine.

Starcraft II (SCII) is going to be huge. If Sony can cough up the right resources to work with Blizzard in making SCII, that can give Blizzard a boost to have a partner in the console market and the PS3 console a boost to have an amazing partner in the gaming market.

Unpleasant Newegg Service Experience

Ever since I first purchased from Newegg, toward the begenning of this year (2007), my experience has been utterly terrible. It's honestly ranking among my top dissapointing purchasing experiences I've ever had. I'm not sure if it's because of the total lack of unenthusiasm the customer service representatives have with helping me solve my problems, or the fact that I had such high expectations from newegg being referred by friends and relatives.

I suppose the problem was I made a very large purchase as my first and only purchase ever from newegg. Usually people only buy a few parts here and there. I bought everything I needed to build a complete system. Everything went just fine until the computer started shutting down, even with the temperatures being very cool. Whenever the computer was actually on for a while though, the power cord that came with the power supply (PowerTek) got so hot it would burn skin by touching it. Trust me, it sucks finding that out by accident, my wife burned her arm on it. I'm surprised newegg carries products like that. Everyone I told had never heard of a power cord from a power supply getting so hot it would burn you. Perhaps that was because the power supply was bad in the first place.

Well, I've sent the power supply back, lets see what they do.

Other than that, when I first got my computer case from newegg, one of the fans were "pre-broken" at no extra charge inside the case. To purchase the computer took so many tries and no one at newegg knew what was going on, I hated the thought of dealing with them again, especially since they were talking like I had never even placed an order. Just completely shrugging off that it was taking so many times to place one single order. Each time having to wait on hold for hours to get in touch with them, adding to my frustration. Then to reach them on the phone and all they have to say is "i don't know." So days and hours worth of ordering and waiting on the phone later, the same thing again. It turns out the problem wasn't completely their fault though. Apparently, I wasn't getting "some" of their automated emails because of a hard block on my ISP's server level spam protection. Due to being a previous employee and knowing the policies of that particular ISP and working with some server side email on my own free time, I'd say it was most likely due to a flaw in newegg's email security system. When I say security, I'm not implying vunerability of entrance to their system, but a lack of sufficient outgoiing email technology. Weeks worth of effort and many hours worth of being on hold, this problem could have been diminished so greatly if the first or even the second customer service reps I talked to would have taken the initiative and claimed ownership of her customers problem and taken a minute to look more into it, then found out what the problem was, instead of just implying I didn't know what I was doing. Said, suggested, implied, and timeline events: "Oh, I don't know why it didn't go through right. Maybe it will next time? If it doesn't, please feel free to wait on hold a few more hours and be told the same thing. Thank you so much for your time!"

So basically, my newegg.com experience has been lacking in customer service. If you know exactly what's going on, they're probably great, but if somethings going wrong and you're not sure what, don't waste your time calling them, they've been a total lack of help.

I was going to stop here, but I forgot something important. When I spoke to a customer service rep over the internet, because I didn't want to have a neck cramp waiting on the phone or my cordless battery dieng while waiting, I eventually reached someone. I told them I needed to RMA (return) something but I wasn't sure how to go about it. They said I'd get an email. I told them I had a problem with email before, is there anyway they could make sure the email went through, maybe a call, or just let me wait for a moment while the email went through? They said no, I'd have to contact customer service again if I didn't get the email so I said can you send it to another email address? They said no.

Eventually, I received the email for the "shipping label" and I was surprised that it was just the ship to address. I thought they would at least pay for postage. I ended up having to pay $16.70 to ship the power supply.

Later, after sending it, I realized they had sent me a second email after the first one, it turns out they do pay for postage and that was the second email with the second half of the postage instructions. Why send the instructions in two different halves? I'm not sure of that one. But I am sure I was told to expect an "email" with shipping instructions, not "multiple emails."

My experience with newegg was unpleasant to say the least and don't worry, I could say a lot more than I've said here, but I'll save that for later.

Update: Sept 30, 2007 Well, they sent me another power supply... It seems to be working good now. I suppose I'll stop complaining about this.

Tag Cloud

Update
I have decided that ZoomClouds is definitely not the fit for me. It doesn't work nearly as I thought it would. It seems like it just makes some words bigger randomly. When I click on one of the big words, it will likely take me to a page on the ZoomCloud server with their advertisements all over the place and the worst part about it: There would only be one of my posts listed. Then, I could click on a much smaller word in the so called "tag-cloud" and it would take me to another page on their server, but with 3 of my listings (totally unrelated, except for the fact that I wrote them).

I think they seriously need to do some work on their algorithm, honestly, if I were them, I would probably completely rewrite the code. It either never worked in the first place, or it broke somewhere along the line, and they didn't feel the need to fix it after "at least months" of being broken. Then again, maybe they mean for it to work the way it currently does (4:31 EASTERN TIME, USA SEPTEMBER 05, 2007)

I searched the internet for days looking for a tool that would aggregate RSS / XML feeds and make a tag cloud out of them, so that way people have an additional option to navigate my content.

With the key phrase of "free tag cloud" (without quotations) I found what I was looking for. Well half of it.

I found ZoomClouds, an awesome Tag Cloud creator that's free to use!

So far, I've only used ZoomClouds with individual feeds. To aggregate them I could use Yahoo Pipes, then take the aggregated feed and use it with ZoomClouds.

Feel free to check out my other blogs if you want to see more of this in action:

Faster Google Crawl Rate For Webmaster Services Updated!

If you've ever used Google Webmaster tools before, you've likely noticed a somewhat new addition to their services, the ability to control the rate of crawling on your web site by the spiders (that is to say, how fast your web site is searched and likely indexed by Google).

Up until very recently, the "Faster" option for crawling was disabled.

FasterGoogle

On a funny, yet understanding note, within less than 2 inches on my display screen, it is recommended that I choose Faster and recommended that I choose the Normal rate for crawling, yet only one can obviously be chosen at a time.

FasterGoogle2

Of course, it's apparent that depending on your servers capabilities is what is recommended. They've also extremely recently updated this, so they'll probably work that out pretty quickly I assume.

If you haven't taken advantage of the Webmaster Tools yet, head over and get your butt in gear, it's free : )

Starcraft 2 Video Collection

Please read this requirement before viewing any of these videos: These are Starcraft 2 videos, you must not dishonor them by not viewing them in full screen with sound off. Please put your gaming gloves on AND ZIP YOUR PANTS UP, YOU SICK B**TAR*!

CINEMATIC TRAILER!

UNIT INTRODUCTION & GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE (the last clip at the bottom (over 20 minutes long) contains most or all of the clips under this - I've watched to many they )

LOOKS LIKE "START OF A MISSION" WITH GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE (Marines with Jump Packs towards the end :))

BATTLE OF GLORIOUS ACTION (with nukes :))

Over 20 Minute Video with strategies and units explained (includes others clips as well - AND MOTHERSHIP BLACK HOLE ABILITY)

PS. Some titles are in English and Some are in Korean

Why is this posted in the web design section? For a couple reasons: One, thre's a LOT of fancy web design that will be coming about due to this game. Two, will likely be one of the biggest that has ever been, there are likely things that will happen in the Starcraft community which will shape other aspects of Internet life, a. And three, Blizzard has a really good web design team themselves, or, they contracted out for a really good team. Either way, check out their web sites done in XML, http://starcraft2.com/index.xml.

Yahoo Site Explorer

The Yahoo! web master tool.

Perhaps this Yahoo! Site Explorer will do us web masters some good. It seems to be a way to keep track of what Yahoo! is doing with our pages. So far, I haven't found anything that gives us extra tools over anyone else though. It seems like everything they show you on there you can find with simple search engine commands (e.g. site: link: etc). One good thing I've found so far, is the ability to show Yahoo! where your feeds are at, which are said to be used for "" by Yahoo! That's great, except for the fact that for now, if you host your feeds on another web site, you can't "claim" your feed, because it's not hosted at your domain.com. Claiming it, I believe allows you to have access to see whether the feed is now being used or not. But I wonder, does submitting a feed that's not authenticated help Yahoo! index the pages in that feed, but it just doesn't let you see what's going on? Or does it not use that feed at all?

Well, one things for sure, for the race of bettering eMail spam hunting software, this may help Yahoo! out by attracting more techies.

If anyone finds a way to add RSS/ATOM or XML feeds that aren't at your domain, such as feedburner or feeddirect, let me know and I'll post an update.

Affordable Cheap Hosting

So far my experience with my hosting company, Cirtex has been a little better than I expected. They guarantee 99.5% uptime, whereas most hosting companies guarantee 99.9% uptime. So, what's the dilly?

Basically, since switching from my old host provider which cost about 100$ more, my site's uptime hasn't been as steady, however, something important to note is that the speed of my web site's deliverance has increased noticeably. Previously, I would get internal server error's out the yin yang at no fault of my own (just opening up database managing software). That basically translates to downtime, because the pages were not viewable. My old host didn't agree with that, so you see where they are now.

So far, I'm relatively satisfied. Seriously, I can't complain with the prices I'm paying. Even if it turns out that I'm not satisfied, it'll be worth keeping the hosting for side-projects because it's so ridiculously cheap (as low as $2.00/month and up, though I got a higher plan).

Boiling point: Slower server that "over loads" but stays on line VS fast server that goes off line. Oh yeah one other thing, the Live help for my new host is very slow, but with a pinch of patience, the support ticket workers and online chatters are very effective.

Speaking of Online Jobs...

There's a web site that I tell a lot of my friends about, but no one's ever heard of it until I tell them. Perhaps they need to work on their marketing :) Really though, they seem to have a niche, so the web site seems to be pudgy like a Thanks Giving turkey, in terms of staying current.

It's basically a place where people who do computer work can search for contractual work to be done from their home. Yes, that's right, actually working from home. A whole web site dedicated to providing the opportunity for such. The company, guru.com, describes itself as "The world's largest online marketplace for freelance talent" and it may be as far as I know. But still, why doesn't anyone know about it? Well, that's what I'm here for, to do what their marketing lacks, because it's just a good site for freelancers.

I believe this article deserves more tags than that, so more people can find work, but I don't want to over-do it.

Note: I seem to do that a lot... Promote sites that deserve promoting due to the quality of their products, features, or services. I especially feel it's right to focus on it when they're not getting the attention they deserve. Kind of like Go-L high performance computers. They have some AMAZING products compared to what else is our there, but I've never once heard anyone else ever knowing about them, whom I don't believe I had told before. You see, what happens, if you tell people about something that's good, more people will know about it, the people who make it can make more for a lesser cost, then you and the people you tell about it can enjoy a high quality product at a low cost.

Well, I suppose I had to over-do something.

Flash Developer Job

If your good using Adobe Flash (especially with web enhanced capabilities), then you may be interested in this. It looks like the following company is looking for people who can develop some creative ways to display photos. It seems like it could be fun.

Windows Live Writer

I've just downloaded the Windows Live Writer. It's a simple program you can download free that makes blog editing easy as pie. I'm just wondering how quickly I can switch between different blogs. (I do operate quite a few of them)

Besides the blow you're reading now, is one for listing cool sites I find on the web. Since it's related, I'll also post a link to a nifty Feed Aggregator link I found here that also helps you manage multiple blogs.

Windows Live Writer Plugins: I've found some pretty interesting windows live gallery tools too. The selection seems to change depending on which browser you're using. If you're using Internet Explorer it's one thing and Firefox it's something different. Maybe it's just me. Either way, I like FireFFox, but of course, as a web designer I not only use FireFox, but also Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari (because you have to make sure your website works with all of the popular browsers, in case you didn't know). Here's the link for Writer Plugins and Windows Live Writer while I'm at it.
