Media Class: The Big Finale & Sleeplessness

February 24, 2009


ALLAUS is finally finished..

That link there is the reason I have not slept since Sunday night. That link there is the uploaded (which made it all slow, wahh!) culminitive fulfillment of my career in Flash. It’s all on Angelfire, I hope you guys can see it properly! I hope to God I never have to touch this accursed program again. Of course that probably won’t happen, but it’s a nice thought

In other news, I am heading to Abeline with Wishing Well at about 1:30 today to help support our branch up there. RoomieRachel will be turning in my Flash assignment, seeing as I’m heading off before class. Hopefully I don’t miss too muc. God, that’s in 12 hours, and that’s a 5 hour drive. I can only hope that I’ll get some sleep on the ride up, because I will be driving back at midnight, and I don’t want to be driving after two nights of no-sleep. If i do, it will be interesting, to say the least. I’m hoping to have a good time there.


I still hate you

February 21, 2009

yes you, Adobe Flash, i’m talking about you.


just wanted to get that out of the way.

so I just found out today that we can apparently use sites like flashkit and such. I’ve been using tutorials and things like that, but I’ve just learned we can take premade things and incorporate them to our own use. I’m intrigued. This doesn’t change that I still hate you Adobe Flash. My fury burns hotter than one-thousand hot burning angry angry suns. You are pure evil.

In other news, I found a post on craigslist looking for an art student to illustrate a children’t book, due to budget restraints. I’m interested, but I am unsure if I’ll be able to do this due to my lack of time, and them saying they are on a tight schedule. I’m looking into details, and I’ll cross my fingers and hope things work out!

I. Hate. Adobe. Flash.

Can I say just how much I am very frustrated with Flash at this moment? I don’t know what I’m doing wrong anymore. I have gone through SEVEN “how to make a website” tutorials, and have gotten NONE of them to work properly! A huge problem that I am running into is that I am using CS4 on my laptop because I am not generally able to make it to the MacLab when it is open. This means several commands and options are completely gone, or perhaps renamed.

Rachel says my website looks fine, but I am sick, and frustrated with being up late half assing everything because I don’t know what the hell I’m doing anymore. I feel like a monkey given a bottle of Elmer’s washable glue and a soggy cardboard box and told to make a floating ship in one hour.

In other news, to make myself feel better. I have listened to the dramatic reading of this breakup letter.
Please indulge yourself. Listen to: you make me touch you hand for stupid reasons

Media Class: Assorted Learning

February 11, 2009

An assorted bit of learning from the past few weeks.

I’ve had a lot of frustration with scrollpanes. I want one that works by merely hovering, instead of this repetitive click click clicking.. can’t seem to hammer it out. Tried to use this tutorial but my components box is always empty, so I can’t finish it which is frustrating. I really hate working in CS4 when its still so new, because all the tutorials seem outdated.

My firstĀ  Scrollpanes!
Scrollpanes type two!

Learning how to do forms
And more forms…
The print button on map page & disabling flash printing

Media Class: Web Design

February 4, 2009



Two fairly rough ideas for ways I’d like to see this go. On one hand I want to keep it really casual and inviting, because it’s a coffee shop, but the other half of me wants it to show up ritzy and classy.
One thing is for sure though, I am keeping with a warm color scheme! Red, yellow, orange, browns. Not too strong, generally lower saturation variants of those colors. mmmm. inviting.
