So I've been meaning to re-do my website for awhile now. The current version of my site is pretty plain and just uses html/css. And since Flash is my forte, I figured it's about time to update. It's been hard to get motivated, since I use Flash all day at work and the last thing I want to do is come home and open Flash, so it's been taking quite a bit longer than I would like. However, I finally have a preview of what the new design is. Well, more of an idea that a preview. I haven't designed what I want the interface to be, but I did get the back-end idea down. The idea is that my little robot character will be the guide to my site. You open my page, he peeks around the corner, notices you there, and runs off. He then rummages off screen and comes back with some note cards. He flips through them and when he finds the right one, he pulls it out, holds it up, and it's my website. Right now, I justed used a screen shot of my current site, but it was more of an exercise to see if my idea was feasible. The robot was made in 3D Studio Max, cel shaded, and exported as vector. I like how it has turned out so far. Let me know what you think, check it out! 2.0 *beta

Crocco (crater)

From Wikipedia:

"Crocco is a lunar crater that is located on the far side of the Moon from the Earth. It is located to the northeast of the huge Planck walled plain, and northwest of the equally huge Poincaré walled plain. Just to the north, within one crater diameter, is the Koch crater.

This is a nearly circular crater formation whose eastern rim has been partly overlain by the satellite crater 'Crocco G'. The rim has received some erosion, but it retains a well-defined edge. A small craterlet lies across the north-northeast rim. Just to the west-southwest of Crocco, nearly attached to the rim, is the satellite crater 'Crocco R'.

The northwestern half of the interior floor is level and almost featureless; displaying the appearance of having been resurfaced by lava. The opposite half of the floor displays some irregularities, including the rim of a small crater that has been almost completely submerged by the lava flow. This crater has a gap in the north rim, and forms a bay on the interior floor of Crocco. A ridge runs from the western rim of this small crater to the southwest inner wall of Crocco."
