After years, and I mean years of neglect, I finally got around to updating my Jarrepalooza site. First time since 2005!! Shockingly, there were not that many albums to add. Most of the changes were format-wise for ease of use as well as updating some of the ancient 1997 code and the links that went to sites that have not existed. All the links are now up to date. Also, added my MP3 albums that were not on the site before. (I totally forgot that my Mobile site was updated back in 2008, and I just never updated the web site!)
As for the Club House, it was redesigned, ditching the old format and now conforms to the Main Page and Daily Update sites (go figure since the Daily Update is technically part of the Club House). Instead of linking to old parties and outdated information, I decided to make it more of an "about/table of contents" page than I originally intended when I started this page in 2002. However, now that the site is 15 years old, I decided to give some history behind the sites and the technical aspects of it.
It still has my newly updated Biography and links to other sites I have featured, and my new favorite which is a list of current sections of the site as well as those long gone, but not forgotten sections.
Next up, I need to create a new banner image to replace the January 2009 one!
m.clubjosh.com has officially launched today! I decided to ditch the Lite name for the ever popular Mobile name.
The structure from the old PDA site is still there, but now can be read on most modern cell phone browsers. I have also optimized the site for iPhones, but still want to create an iPhone specific site that can use all of the features and functionality that the platform allows.
I have also updated the Jarre section to reflect the CDs, Singles, and Videos I have aquired over the last few years (now just need to update the actual Jarrepalooza Web Site). Right now, the Daily Update is just what appears on the Main Index page of the Club Josh Web Version. I still need to figure out how to generate Mobile-Friendly archives so you can browse the whole enchilada, but then again, I don't think people really want to do that, so we shall see if it gets done. Maybe in another 5 years.
I will be adding the new Trip Diaries for 2002-2008 as soon as I finish cutting and pasting from the Daily Update.
Hitbox.com decided to discontinue their free web stats tool. According
to their site, they sent out emails, but since I have been with them
since August 27, 1997, I am sure they sent it to the wrong address. Bad
News? Five years of data is down the drain. I'm not sad because it was
something neat to look at, but I never followed it closely. Also, since
I started Clubjosh.com in 1999 I have had server stats anyways. The
good news is that my main issue with migrating all the photos to
gallery has been resolved. I no longer need to worry about stats
tracking. I have managed to remove all of those annoying casino banners
with the exception of some of the old Gorn and Party photo galleries.
Since I will be migrating, I decided not to sit here and go through
each gallery. Of course If I am surfing on the site I will be sure to
remove it when I see it. I also managed to quickly update my Jarre
collection. Man, that section needs some TLC!!
did some link cleanup on the site today. In the Trip Diaries section, I
noticed that the link to the Diaries index page for 1996 and 1997 were
pointing to the wrong place. I also decided to add a link to the Gorn
pictures for the corresponding years. In Jarrepalooza, I fixed the link
to the Ultra Fancy Jarre list so that it no longer opens in a window. I
intend to fix up that page and eliminate the text listing in the near
future. Traffic to Club Josh continues to skyrocket. Who knew that the
Charo pictures would be the #1 section. I guess people are no longer
interested in 5 year old pictures of Disneyland Paris (though it
continues to get some decent numbers) Guess I need to go back soon. I
also fixed some of the redirects on the old JPS site so that they no
longer auto-forward. Those pages expire on 6-17-01 so if you are still
bookmarking them, now is the time to update the links.
this will help you find out the latest goings-ons for the different
versions easier. It will also allow me to add What's new sections to
the different sites. In other news, I added META tags to Jarrepalooza
so it will be indexed better on the search engines. It looks like sites
like Google are focusing on the Trip Diaries and ignoring the other
sections. Hopefully some tweaking here and there will help.
This section contains a list of my Jarre collection as well as links to
the cover images. There seem to be a few sync problems. Sometime when I
sync the site certain pages are unavailable. I'll pass on what the deal
is when I figure it out.
