Blanchard Church of Christ Website

Blanchard Website

The Blanchard Church of Christ website has been in the works over the past few months. It is now ready for show time. The site went live a couple days ago. As of this writing I don’t think all the pages have content, but most of the main pages have at least some content.

The site is equipped with a custom CMS that uses the tinyMCE WYSIWYG JavaScript editor with a MySQL backend. However, the part of the site I am most proud of is the design of the site itself. Not because the design is really great (trust me, I know it’s not), but because it was designed by one of the least artsy people I know, me.

Another reason I am excited about the website is that it is a landmark in my web design career. This website is the first I have done on my own. Working on this project has given me a greater appreciation for everything else that goes on in the web design industry. In this project I got a small taste of everything from graphic design to meeting with the clients. It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed most of it.

Fling Solver

I got a little bored this weekend, so I decided to spend an hour or so writing a solver for the new iPhone game Fling. (Okay, you got me. I wasn’t really bored. I just got to a level I couldn’t solve.) After creating a quick command line version of the solver, I decided to be a little more ambitious. I made it my goal to make a JavaScript based solver. Not only did I want to do this so that I would have an online solver, but also so I could learn some new / practice some old JavaScript.

I hadn’t written anything in JavaScript in almost a year, and what I did then was very simple stuff. I wanted a chance to use classes in JavaScript, something I had never done. So, without any more stalling, here is the JavaScript Fling solver.

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs (I didn’t test it very well) or if it doesn’t work in your browser (I only tested in Firefox and Mobile Safari). Also, any suggestions or comments are also welcome.
