Release and Technical Notes

Information for the curious and the stumped.

While I'm not one you'd normally call a browser-bigot, I must point out that this project is best viewed using Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser on a Windows 95 or NT 4.0 computer. This was not an arbitrary decision. At the time I did the majority of the work behind this project, it was simply the best browser to author for. I haven't knowingly included anything non-standard or that I expect not to work on other (and future) browsers, but testing it on all browsers on all platforms is hardly something I can be expected to do.

Furthermore, it is important that you are not viewing this on a "low-end" PC. In order for this presentation to be effective, you should have at least a 15" monitor, and SVGA graphics @ 800x600x16bit. Viewing this presentation on less hardware is certainly possible, you may just "miss" some of what I intended you to see.

It is also worth noting that the latter part of this project was developed using Microsoft's FrontPage 97 web authoring and web site management tool. Without FrontPage, this project would have taken me even longer to complete. FrontPage freed me from many of the burdens of traditional web page authoring and allowed me to focus on what I wanted to do, rather than worrying how to do it. I highly recommend FrontPage to anyone who is looking for a decent and cost-effective web authoring and site management tool (that doesn't have to run on a Unix box).
