Log of changes to Coises’ web site

13 July 2014

Added Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet to Coises’ Writings.

17 April 2014

Updated Coises’ Expectation in Coises’ Software to version 2.0.1. This minor update made two changes:

  • The Play button, after changing to Done during a game, now reverts to Play (instead of New Game) after a game is finished.
  • Some help text was rewritten.
3 April 2014

Updated Coises’ Expectation in Coises’ Software to version 2.

10 January 2012

Changed all pages in Coises’ Songs that used the Windows Media Player plugin to use the standalone version of the WordPress Audio Player instead. The WMP plugin did not work for some people, for no reason I was ever able to discover; hopefully this Flash-based player will be closer to universal.

Added Facebook meta-tags and a Share button to pages for recorded songs in Coises’ Songs. The tags still don’t set the artist, and sometimes the title, correctly, though.

Added The Kind Side to Coises’ Songs.

11 June 2011

This was a complete web site redesign. These are the major changes:

Cosmetics and Organization

All pages have a common logo/heading, so navigation should be a bit more consistent. A new design which scrolls the content while leaving the header and footer in place (on most systems), similar to that previously used for song pages in the Music section, was applied to most parts of the site except the Photos section.

Home : Where else? contains interesting offsite links that were accessed by the links at the lower right side of the home page in the previous design (and prior to that were called “Favorite Links”).

Home : Why not? was added to serve as a repository for whatever strikes my fancy that doesn’t fit anywhere else.

The audio players on the song pages in the Music section were moved to the new logo/heading area, so they no longer scroll off the screen when scrolling the lyrics. “Autoplay” is now disabled, so the music no longer starts playing when you go to a recorded song page until you choose to start it by clicking the play button in the player.

The “orphan” pages with pictures of our homes in Costa Rica were moved to Photos : Homes in Costa Rica (2, 3, 4).

Content

Home : Who is Coises? (formerly The FAQs about Coises) has been brought up to date and re-organized. It no longer adheres to the rec.music.tori-amos introductory “pFAQ” (personal FAQ) format; more biographical narrative has been added, while various sections (such as “Turnons” and “Quotes”) that were part of the pFAQ format have been removed.

A site map was added at Home : What is here?.

Various additions, deletions and corrections were incorporated into the new Home : Where else? page.

“Coises’ Covers” were removed from the Music section, which now consists entirely of my own compositions.

The song page for Rising Up to Shut You Down now contains an embedded YouTube video player instead of an audio player.

Several photos were added to Photos : Through the Years and Photos : Animal Friends.

In Software, licensing for Poker Squared was changed to the Expat/MIT license; Launcher, MonitorSleep and US-1252 were explicitly placed in the public domain. What a Drag (a skin for the now obsolete Windows Media Player 9) was removed.

In Writings, the links to my LiveJournal and to Déjà Coises (a Google Groups search for my Usenet posts) were removed. The LiveJournal link can still be found in Where else? : Coises.

29 May 2011

Added Love in 4/4 Time to Coises’ Songs.

Updated The FAQs about Coises.

30 October 2008

Added The Big Picture to the Blogs section of the home page.

Updated SwiftKey to version 1.0.2, which provides a work-around for some users for whom SwiftKey omits some or all of the text it is supposed to type.

28 October 2008

Updated code for “All Music Guide” searches in the “music” section of the home page... we’ll see how long it keeps working this time.

Added Don’t Get Your Hopes Up, Heartbeat and Debbie’s Tune to Coises’ Songs.

10 October 2007

Fixed (hopefully) the All Music Guide searches on the music panel.

29 September 2007

Added Slicker to Coises’ Software, and re-arranged the software index a bit to place games, applications and other software in separate sections.

28 August 2007

I changed the entire structure of the site. What used to be “Favorite Links” has been radically reworked and is now part of my home page (see the options at the lower right). The FAQs About Coises was updated and VOBDNorm was added to Software.

I’m doing my best to be sure this site works in Internet Explorer 6 and up and in current versions of Opera and Firefox on Windows. I have no way of testing it on other platforms and browsers, so for those I can only hope...

2 April 2007

Greetings page

Changed greeting to make no reference to any particular holiday, since I’m doing a really pathetic job of keeping this website updated.
