the Houston Zoo has a new baby giraffe.
So in honour of him/her here is some random giraffe facts:
Giraffa means "one who walks swiftly"
A giraffe has just 2 gaits: walking and galloping
Giraffes are nonterritorial and sociable. They live
in loose, open herds.
Giraffes rarely lay down; they even sleep and give
birth standing up.
The giraffe is the worlds tallest animal.
Oxpecker birds like to help giraffes by eating bugs
off their backs
A giraffe's toungue is black
Males and females tend to eat from different parts
of a tree to ensure that the sexes do not compete
There are many kinds of giraffes in the world :
Kordofan Giraffe, Angolan Giraffe, southern Giraffe,
Nigrian Giraffe, Reticulated Giraffe, Masai Giraffe
and Rofts Giraffe.
Mankind has historically honored giraffes. Giraffes
feature in African cave paintings and in ancient
Egyptian art and designs.
I added a new project
Truncale to the project section. You can read more
about it there. I also temporarily removed the
Alliance Bible Church prototype because I was having
some issues with the menu.
project has been updated with a few more art pieces.
As far as design goes it is almost finished. I
have to add a contact form, a bio section (probably an
iframe) and he wanted a music player - which will end up
being Flash based.

While looking for
some where to practice my web skills I was browsing
around on MySpace and found my friend Leno's site. He
had some of his paintings and drawing there and I
thought what a great chance to make a portfolio site for
him. I am fleshing out some ideas with him at the
moment. See what it looks like so far
here. It isn't close to being done yet, but
you'll get the overall idea by looking at it.
news pertaining to this project will be posted
here in the projects section.

Working on a New Project
I recently have been
working on the new Alliance Bible Church website.
What I have posted is
here. The navigation at the top looks fine
in IE and Fire Fox, but I am having issues with the look
in Safari. The table padding isn't right and makes
it look sloppy. Also enjoy that drop down menu it
took hours for me to figure out how to make it work.
Then another hour tweaking it to satisfy my eye.

Something You Might Like
I ran across a new game that I
really enjoy playing. It is called Voyage Century Online.
The game is set in the time of pirates and sailing ships. It
is an online game where you can build your own ship and sail around
the world trading, exploring, fighting and plundering. The
best part of this game is that it is absolutely free! The
community in the game is rather large and seems to be growing
everyday. The download is over a 1gb but it is worth it.

New and Improved, part 2
Ok I have finished updating
almost everything. I still have to finish the project section and fix
the form for the contact page. I am trying out a new dynamic
[pagination] code I saw on the internet. For demonstration
purposes you'll see it at the bottom of this page. Of course
I'll probably display 5 or 6 different news sections at a time when
I get more.
Check out the other style of pagination
I am thinking about using
On another topic I read a topic in
a magazine about internet security and they gave some good downloads
and information. I thought I'd do the same and post it to this
site. Look for it in upcoming updates.

New and Improved
New version of
truncale.net is now up and running. It isn't
completely done as only a few links will work. I
usually don't put a site up until it is finished but I
am trying to work out some bugs with the css code and
blah blah blah... The resume links work as well the
