    I totally ruined my personal economy last week when I bought the Canon 5D...
    :-/ Well, anyway, so far I am greatly satisfied! I just put some new photos
    at my website, for anyone who is interested... It's in norwegian though, but
    the language of photos is fairly international, I guess ;)

    Nice pictures. Did you build your own site? What did you use?

    I wouldn't know how nice his pictures are since his requires Flash.
    Nothing like limiting one's audience.

    Thanks! Yes, I built my own site. The flash part (not the main page, but the
    others) are a function in Photoshop CS and CS2. You
    find it under "File - Automate - Web Photo Gallery". The main page I made in
    Photoshop and Image Ready. I also know a bit of
    html-coding, so I put it all together that way.

    It also requires Javascript, so that limits his audience too. Including me.

    Some great shots there, particularly in the live music section. What
    camera and lens were you using there?

    How *do* you find your way around the web with Javascript disabled?

  10. Quite easily, thankfully JS-only sites are still the minority, and you
    reduce the security and hassle implications of having anonymous scripted
    code running on your machine. JS is not necessary to create web sites,
    that's what HTML/XML/CSS are for, JS et al should be for extra
    functionality if anything.

    I do have JS enabled but heavily restricted in Mozilla on Linux. If I
    used Windows I would seriously consider turning it off completely.

  11. How *do* you find your way around the web with Javascript disabled?

    Around 10% of web users don't have Javascript. Websites that rely on it
    loose 1 in 10 of their visitors immediately. I find it somewhat silly
    that people who want to show off their photos rely on Javascript to do
    so. It's completely unnecessary and just demonstrates that their photos
    aren't of good enough quality to be shown without presentation aids.

    To answer your question, I run the NoScript extention to Firefox, which
    allows me to selectively turn on Javascript for sites that a) need it,
    and b) I trust.

    Unfortunately I work in the field of IT security and I'm very much aware
    of what someone with bad intentions can do with Javascript. If the 90%
    of surfers who have Javascript turned on knew what ITSec pros know about
    it's potential for harm, they'd turn it off immediately.

    Still, it keeps the phishers, pharmers, adware writers, spyware writers,
    virus writers, identity thieves, credit card information thieves, etc.,
    all very happy.

    All my previous sites have been mostly HTML but I am slowly starting to
    see the benefit of Javascript for things like creating tooltips that
    display EXIF info on mouseover, or for hiding menus so that more of the
    screen is used to display the images, etc.

    I've completed 90% of the new site's navigation and will be adding
    content to the new pages soon. I think what I will obviously have to do
    is create a pointer to the old site for people who don't want to turn
    Javascript on when they visit my site.

    Thanks for the input.

  13. I think what I will obviously have to do
    Just create web pages that look OK with or without Javascript turned on.
    You can do your menus and EXIF cleverness with CSS.

    Thanks! For all of the shots I've used a Canon 10D. The lenses used are
    mostly Sigma 105mm f:2.8, Canon 50mm f:1.4 and Sigma 10-20mm f:4-5.6. Mostly
    iso 800-1600.
