New Project: Ministry

An idea I first blogged about in a post titled Ministry is now starting to take shape. Ferguson Christian Church is going to have a website. I am going to be --for lack of a better term-- the leader and lead designer of this project.

I can't talk much about this as of yet, as there isn't much there right now, but I'm very excited. What you might see there right now is a default template that I used experimentally to see how Network Solutions ImageCafé software would work for this feature, even though I planned from the beginning to build the template from scratch. It's kind of stereotypical and bland for a church website, a spiritual artistic sunset with a soft-focus bird of peace accent. Needless to say, I don't like it.

My next steps will be to take the design concepts that were approved and discussed at our meeting with the adult leadership team at the church and add the changes as requested and get them uploaded to the server.

Aside: ..and off the subject, if you have been attempting to email me without success, you have my apologies as things are not working 100% right after the recent DNS transfer. Trying to look professional and email the church leadership with a broken mail server is frustrating. Not fun.

Firefox 1.5 Coolness

So I upgraded to the most recent version of Firefox, and although the noticable differences are minor, I did find my favorite new feature. If you click a link directly to an image, the Icon on the tab will be a thumbnail view of the image. You can see the history of this feature at - Use Image Thumbnails as Favicon.

Compare this -

Tabs Before

- To this -

Tabs After

It's time that you Got Firefox!

TEXT-IMAGE.com

I may have found one of the coolest things you can do with images online. Convert any image to ASCII or HTML or even a Matrix image. I can't think of any interesting ways to use this, but for now, just check out this version of Maynard Ferguson in ASCII.
