I just wanted to let you know that I have made a website. I made it of my photography, so please feel free to stop in and if you want to comment or just let me know what you think of the site please email me at photographybytyler@gmail.com. Thanks. The website is photographybytyler.tk Yes it is .tk, not .com this is because the original URL was really long and hard to remember, and so I changed it with a site that has to put .tk Well thanks Please check out the site, I would really appreciate it, and tell others about it. I should get it up and running smooth soon. I just made it today so there is limited content right now.

You have a great looking site. I really like the background, it goes well with your images. I might have to change to that template myself!

What issue of iLife do you have?

Todd. I have iLife 09. I just got my mac about a week ago, which by the way is amazing compared to my old computer. The only thing is, is that I don’t have mobile me for a web server, so I can’t enable comments on my pages which is a bummer, I might get mobile me some day but for now this will have to do. Pretty cool what you can do with a little time and iWeb.

Your website is very nicely done. I like the grey background and simple layout. Very clean and professional looking. I’m looking for a new camera to document my canes, so I need good close ups too.

I like the design of your Rocket Car. Now if only you can create a non-flamable projected car, that’s a real winner. I’m just worried about the safety factor for kids (and not so bright adults).

Yeah the Rocket car was fun. I only launched it once
We made them at school, but originally we put a co2 bottle in the back and our teacher had a rig that would poke holes in the back and they would fly down a track. When I brought mine home I put a rocket in it. I have a rocket car kit (sold at any store) and so I put it on that. I then launched it but the force was so powerful that at the end it rolled and cracked the wing off the back. ha ha. It was the fastest piece of wood I have ever seen. It probably went about 60 mph. Good fun but I need a less powerful motor that one was insane.

How did you host the site without mobileme?

I purchased the .mac account for $99 per year because it works with the site, has my .mac email, and online computer back-up.

This is where it gets quite complicated. It took me about an hour or two to figure out how to do this. What you need to do is download a digital drop box from www.getdropbox.com, then you need to make your site and say publish to folder. Once you have done that you can drag the html file and the file with the name of your site (should be a folder) over to the digital drop box, in the digital drop box there should be a folder named public. You have to drop it in there and then right click on the html file from inside that public directory. When you right click you then go down to the menu field that says drop box, and then click copy public URL. You can then put this URL into your browser and it will take you to your site. Then if you want a better name for your site instead of haveing all kinds of numbers and letters, you have to go to www.dot.tk I believe. There you can type your URL in and give it a better name. Then your done. It seems complicated but its really not that bad once you figure it out. There is a video on this, it is here

Thanks Tyler. I am going to check it out on YouTube.

I have my domain registered with GoDaddy and my site is hosted on the .mac or now called mobileme. Of course with having a paid account I get all the bells and whistles available to me. I also enjoy the full compatibility.

At the time that I set up my domain name on GoDaddy, their website building feature was not Mac friendly but it did not matter because I had iWeb. But one feature that I did have have was name masking. My checking on this option it allows me to cover the long and obscure .mac address with just www.amcraftsman.com.

There is one drawback to this, if you want to put a link to a specific page it will always take you only to the homepage and then you will have to navigate to the specific page within the site.

I am not interested in people having an ability to leave comments on my site, but that is my personal preference.

Did you get a MacBook or a desktop? How big of a screen did you get?

Tyler-

HolySchmolies! You’re quite the photographer… There are some really good pics in your albums. I’m thinking you’re a young man with many, many talents.

Awesome photographs. When do you find the time? School, woodworking, girls, ... I’d be done. I really like the dragster … nothing like a teenager and fireworks.

Tyler, Wonderful work with the website and your photograph. You seem to have a very firm grasp on both! Thanks for sharing.
