Two To-Do-List Checkmarks

Consummatum est: the websites of Electromedia and Imagineers are back up, two of the first professional* commercial websites I ever worked on. Once, they were entombed in Flash menus, frames, nested tables, and buggy HTML — wrought by my own hand! Today they are resurrected: PHP-driven, faster, tighter, gloriously robed in XHTML and CSS. (To save time and energy, however, I made it a point to use the graphics from older iterations, since those were still good for use, embossed and drop-shadowed though some of them may have been.) Whew. That’s two sites out of the project bottleneck. Feels good.

* (Well, there was also before them, but my work on that was hardly “professional,” I admit with great shame.)


  1. I’m not sure if it’s intentional. But in your Imagineers website, there is a bunch of “left over codes”

    .”; } ?>

    … at the bottom of each page. I was thinking you might have left these outside your PHP bracket. Or maybe an intentional artistic design. Anyways, just to let you know.

  2. Paulo says:

    Arnold, thanks for spotting that. I had an extra .”;?> at the very end of the template file which I hadn’t spotted earlier; got lost in the cut-and-paste. Now fixed.
