Other galaxies far, far away...
- Bertotti Station (10/2001-)
Description: Been a long while since the website had an overhaul. About two kids ago if you do the math. This website was inspired by Edison's love of trains. All aboard!
Technology: Relatively simple website with rollover images. All the other web pages were done manually. This one was done with FrontPage. Actually, I could've finished it faster manually since FrontPage kept breaking everything and I would have to start over.
I'm hoping that by converting, I can change themes more...plus now Diane can
update her page.
- bertottiWorld (1/1999-10/2001)
Description: Created to change things up and for faster loading. Really in preparation
for the incoming baby. Picture of a globe and the continents are the links to the
Technology: Even another step backwards technology-wise with only a graphics map.
The step forward is in artistry. (The trick is to not draw it yourself). It looks
better than the simple square Texas flag and the semi-clunky remote control. And
it loads faster.
- Texas Flag website (7/1998-1/1999)
Description: Created to inform people that we've moved to Texas. It was the colors
of the texas flag with a menu where the star would be and a picture of a cactus.
Technology: A step backwards really. This was faster to download and simple. The
only cool effect was a different picture would pop up if you rolled over the graphic
- Remote Control website (aka Uncle Dan's Favorite
Description: Inspired by TV. This was a crazy idea I had, but Diane never liked
the TV theme and it took very long to download. A remote control comes rolling
in from one side, the title "the BertottiWeb" comes rolling in from other sides
of the screen, and there is a TV in the distance. The remote control had the different
Technology: Big jump from static website to something original. Drew up an original
remote control. Then used a 15-day free trial of 3-D software to create the rolling
effects so I could never edit it again. Moved on to bit maps, cascading images,
but again, it took too long to download. We had ADSL then and it wasn't an issue
- Original website (10/1997-12/1997)
Description: Followed the original, boring home page format. Most of the graphics
and links are long gone, but this is a taste of what it looked like.
Technology: Back when we thought animated gifs were cool and not tacky. Hyperlinks,
colored text and backgrounds, and graphics. That's it.
