This page contains answers to common questions asked
or imagined by my visitors...or for that matter, just people who know me in
general! Let me know if you'd like to see other questions answered here.
- How do I find out what's changed on the site?
- I'm having problems finding all the deeply nested stuff on your site. Help!
- Where can I find photographs since I'm too lazy to read?
- Just who is Donna J. Leiber?
- What's the best resolution for viewing the site?
- If I look at the source HTML for the pages, why are some so
much more cluttered with Microsoft stuff than others?
- How long has this site been around and could I make one myself?
The "What's New" page lists changes and additions, from most
recent to long past. It is a good place to start surfing the site if you
haven't been here for awhile. You can get there from a variety of
places, but most easily from the link at the top left of the home page or from the Visitor Support Center main page.
I don't blame you; there are over 1000 pages and several thousand photos.
The new and greatly improved Site Map is a great way to navigate to areas of interest that are categorized there for you. Plus, you can see some of the nested menus there, although some of the larger areas just have one entry in the Site Map and clicking on it will get you to a start page from which you can launch other thing.
The What's New page is also usually a great place to visit to see what's changed and how recently (listed in order of the most recent changes first).
Both of these are available as top links from the Home Page, as well as from the Visitor Support main page and most visitor support subpage menus.
There are photos strewn around the site, but naturally the first place to
check is the "Photo Gallery". Even if the photos are
technically organized in that section, I'll try to have links there to where
they really are (like the Mystery Soiree snapshots). Photographs of
"things," though, like my artwork, will not appear with the rest of
the photos, per se, since they're sort of in a different category. The Photo links from the Site Map are sometimes more useful.
This is the question of the millenium. (Well, in my own mind, at
least!) Mostly, it seems, she's just someone with a lot of time on her
Unfortunately, I should have a great answer for this, being a software
engineer and all. But the problem is that I use a variety of monitors
and resolutions to create, work on, and view the pages, and I'm
inconsistent. Generally, though, it works best with at least 800 x 600
resolution and millions of colors (of course).
This is a function of whether the page has been created in Microsoft's
Front Page or not. In the beginning (well, for two weeks), I used it
exclusively. Then, as everyone warned would happen, it messed up.
(If you were around then, you saw duplicate banners on each page.) So,
little by little, I've gone back and removed the Front Page code where I found
anyway. I DO like some of the themes, though, so I've kept using some of
those, or mish-mashes thereof (backgrounds, bullets, banners). In
general, though, if a page looks like everyone else's on the Internet and/or
seems to mess up a lot, it's probably still Front Page.
I got my domain name in January of 2000 and added a few pages using Front Page
around then. I didn't do much with it for awhile, then bought myself a
scanner (a GREAT purchase and they're so cheap!) and have been
doing it in spurts since. I wanted to learn HTML and VBScript and
can. But considering in the beginning that I hadn't done one single HTML page
in my life, I've come a long way, quickly. So, YES, you, too, could do
