CON DIARY UPDATE

Finally I got some more stuff done on the Midwest FurFest 2002 cartoon con diary! The nontrivial part was getting it all scanned and uploaded using my new computer.

First I scanned the art on my new scanner (which I like a lot better than the old one) and edited it in Photoshop.

Then, since my old HTML and FTP programs, CuteHTML and CuteFTP, didn't get copied over from the old machine (I meant to, but the directory with the installer programs in it mysteriously disappeared from the new machine after I copied it over... did the antivirus program delete it or something?) So I wanted to download them again from the website, but, hmmm, I didn't remember them being so expensive. So I went to http://www.tucows.com to find new ones. I downloaded a couple of freeware programs called AceHTML 5 Freeware and Prishtina FTP.

Then I used AceHTML 5 to write webpages for the diary. It worked well, though I'll have to get used to all the differences from CuteFTP. (The difference that will probably be most sorely missed is the way CuteFTP would remember where on the line the cursor was, and I could do stuff like add a bunch of numbers to sequential lines, for instance changing
  mff02-.html
  mff02-.html
  mff02-.html
  mff02-.html
  mff02-.html
  mff02-.html

to
  mff02-35.html
  mff02-36.html
  mff02-37.html
  mff02-38.html
  mff02-39.html
  mff02-40.html


using only the down-arrow key. IOW, I could just type 35-down-36-down-37-down instead of having to type 35-down-left-left-36-down-left-left etc. That was sweet. I wonder if AceHTML has such a feature. I tried looking for it in the helpfile but I don't even know what such a feature would be called or where to find it.

So anyway, I got my HTML written, then I launched Prishtina FTP to upload the files. That part was smooth and simple, and successful.

So now the MFF diary finally has more stuff in it! Go look! The new stuff covers Uncle Kage's Story Hour and the "Presenting Furry Fandom to the World" panel.
