I tend to spend entirely too much of my spare time taking apart, putting together, loading, and reloading my computer. So this section will contain an ever growing FAQ -- if I ever get around to writing things down.
My current system is a Cyrix P-166+ MMX w/96MBs RAM, running Windows 95. In it I have a BUZ Video Capture Board , a ELSA Winner 8MB Display Adapter, a Soundblaster 16, a PCI network card, and a 33.3 Fax/Modem. For storage I've got a Western Digital 2.5GB Caviar EIDE drive, a Maxtor 3.5GB Ultra DMA drive, a SyQuest SyJet Internal removable EIDE drive, a 4X CD-ROM, and of course a 3.5" floppy.I have set up a Windows network between an old 486 DX2-66 running NT 4.0 that I built from leftover parts, my daughter's computer and mine. Currently, her's is a Cyrix P-150+.
I put this web site together myself, with some hints from David Lozinski. Most of the photos were captured with a Sony 8MM camcorder, digitized with a Cardinal SnapPlus video capture card using Adobe Premiere, manipulated in Adobe Photoshop, and then I used various utilities to put the pages together. I started off with PowerPoint. Powerpoint is great for slides on the web, but not for a home page. Next I tried Word 97. That was better than PowerPoint, but it was still kind of slow and it would automattically put things into the HTML that I didn't want there. In the end I ended up looking at the HTML generated by Word, and modifying it in a text editor to do what I wanted.
