Well, I finally fixed what trainweb.org broke, so the site is back up, after ... a year? two? of being broken. I haven't really done much else to the site but de-server-side-include-ed it. It's my goal/intent to someday buy a digital camera, move to a different website, and then update this thing. Until then, the website is kind of presented in "stasis"; a historic example of early railroad websites.
In other news, I've got a job, and I'm very happy with it. It's in Huntsville, AL and I'm employed as a Rocket Scientist by our federal government... big fun.
For some reason, trainweb.org's servers seem to suck a lot now too, so page loading times are pretty slow... oh well.
It's been over a year since the last time I performed a major update of this site. I've updated a few pages here and there since, but not many. I am still interested in updating these pages, and will do so, at some point. However, right now I am in my final semester at the University of Alabama, and will graduate in December, 2001.
When I find gainful employment, I will hopefully have enough time (and money for decent equipment) to update this site completely. I have about three times the number of pics that are currently up that need to be scanned and put up online.
I am also hoping to get my own domain (through Trainweb) at some point after graduation and after I begin working...
Until then, if anyone out there is looking to hire an Electrical Engineer with an extensive resume, drop me an e-mail message.
Till next time,
Old Update (2000):
Well, it's taken long enough. I started out in early 1997 on a University of Alabama web server, and now, in 2000, I have completed a 100% overhaul of the site and the site is hosted on Trainweb.org. Most of the look, layout, and page names are the same, but lots of photos have been added, and all the HTML has been cleaned up (whether you notice or not is another matter...).
Some new pages have been added also, like the Ringling Brothers page, the Sperry page, etc.
Photo's that are too new to have HTML written for them yet are still located in the /new/ directory.
99% of all photos now have thumbnails for faster loading times.
