Website Journal

6/24/2004 - Moved to present site host.

7/30/2004 - Two sections were added to better organize the site and to make the menus of each section shorter. It was brought to my attention that the home menu was too confusing and people were having trouble navigating the site. I hope that the changes made help everyone who visits our site.

8/7/2004 - Corrected a few minor spelling errors and checked over all pages to be absolutely sure that the site is working correctly. Changed home page to image map entrance and enhanced the home page. Added new poem to poetry section.

8/11/2004 - Created and added cloud background.

8/14/2004 - Added a section of emotional tribute. This section is dedicated to the Vietnam Veterans and their cause. We hope to keep adding to this section as time goes bye with information of interest to all Americans. We have avoided this topic way to long, and it is time that we as Americans show our pride in all our Veterans as a whole.

8/15/2004 - Add a flag background to the Vietnam Veteran's section. (Note: Both middle frame backgrounds can take a while to load depending on the speed of your modem. Please be patient?)

A sad discovery is that Netscape 7.1 will not play midi or wave files. You can download them, but you cannot hear them before doing so. I do recommend that all my visitors use Internet Explorer browsers to view this site if possible. If you do not use Internet Explorer, I'm sorry, but you will not see the full special and/or sound effects of my web site. However, it can be viewed in the lower versions as far as I know. I do not have the lower version of Netscape to test with.

Fixed several problems with the awards won section of the site. Seems that some images were corrupted and were appearing on the wrong page. The links were fine, just the images needed re-uploaded to correct the problem. Also updated credits page.

12/24/2004 - Started the process of reorganizing the site on 12/19/04 and finished today. Reorganization includes adding email address links to all of the menus except the awards program menus. On the awards program pages: I added a separate statistics page, retired awards page, separated the previous awards winners with 3 pages added to do so and separated the Best Site award winners with tables. Plus, added a "My Pledge" page to the awards program. From the GuestBook signatures, I added a GuestBook Achieves because it could no longer be viewed by the visitors as part of the signatures. Removed the calendar from the home site menu and moved the one for the awards program to its main page. I also started a new page to continue update to this journal. And adjusted parts of the site for clarity.
