Dynamic Link Viewer

This is a menu for any website that can hold an infinate number of links, each with a description. Still old and lame, however.

Something I made for my first personal website. Done in 2004, and again, not something anyone would actually want to use, because of the cumbersome way it had to be set up. But remember, we had lower standards around 2004.

Here’s what I originally wrote about it:

This is a menu for any website that can hold an infinate number of links, each with a description. Select categories from the dropdown box, with up to 15 links per category (in this particular version) and an unlimited number of categories. Even a massive website can have every webpage accessable from a single box at the bottom of every page. The links, categories and descriptions are all pulled from easy to edit text files. This was something I did within the first year of my Flash development. It was a good idea, but I was a beginner.

The Flash itself is a mere 17 KB, and the text files for the 60 links and descriptions displayed here are less than 8 KB total, so this system is an efficient addition to a website, though is not intented to completely replace standard HTML links.

Dynamic Slideshow

A simple slideshow flash app. Terribly lame by today’s standards. Again, from 2004 when I was still line-cooking for a living, and wasn’t sure if I really wanted to be a Flash developer.

Tour My Old Apartment

This is the first interactive thing I did in Flash, back around 2004, when I was still line-cooking at the Village Inn Pub and Eatery. Looking at it now I’m shocked at not only how I was living back then, but at what low standards I had for my Flash projects.

Village Inn Opener

This is the front page animation I made for The Village Inn Pub and Eatery, where I was line-cooking at the time. This is the ugliest and lamest thing I’ve ever made in Flash… or perhaps in any medium.

The History of Spam Lunch Meat

The first thing I ever made in Flash, and man is it horrible. I’m embarrassed to have my name associated with this.

The first thing I ever made in Flash, around 2004, and man is it horrible. I’m embarrassed to have my name associated with this. I don’t know why I thought I needed such a long waiting period to let the rest of the animation download. Maybe we were all on dial up back then.

I’ve been told “it has character because it’s so awful.” I think they were just blowing smoke.
