I love this week’s creation!
I’ve been wanting to cancel my cable for a veeeeery long time.I always feel like I’m being ripped off ’cause there’s so much good content online for free. Why am I paying for both? It’s so expensive, but when you just want to relax for an hour and put something on, it’s so very convenient.
Well, I’ve taken the time to scour the interwebs and find all the goodness of tv land, and put it all together in one place so you can essentially channel surf through the video pages of tv network websites! It’s called InityTV.
The main thing I’ve never liked about watching TV online is that it’s so hard to find the various networks or programs you want without having to do a bunch of Google searches. Here’s a way to watch TV online for free, from an aggregate of your favorite networks video websites! Inity TV is sort of like a search engine like Google, or a discovery site like Digg, but focused solely on cable channels that are providing full episodes of their shows online for all to watch. It’s sort of like a free Netflix!
There’s still some bugs to work out. I plan to change the channel navigation to a smoother and less obtrusive design. Maybe a few other things too. Please test it out and let me know how to make it better.
And if you like it and find it useful, please SHARE IT!!
Week 4, ahead of schedule!! 🙂
Okay, it feels good to not be posting this at the last minute on Saturday night. However, I am planning to have a second post for week 4… “planning” that is.
Anyway, this week I completed the current theme to this website; the Weekly Creations “Da Vinci” Theme. I may play around with it a little more in the future to add some fun stuff, but for now, I’m calling it done and ready for use!
Here’s a comparison of the old theme and the new one:
As a musician, it’s nice to dabble in visual creativity. It’s something I don’t do nearly as much, but I love it nonetheless. I’d like to paint one day, just like Da Vinci himself. I love and admire the vast and complimentary creativity of polymaths.
I think this little change will have a big impact on the feel of a site of this nature. It’s a “Weekly Creations” site, it should have a creative look!
Well, I was hoping to post a new song recording or DIY project this week, but I’ve been pretty tied up ’til today, and recording just wasn’t working out when I took a stab at it. Fortunately, what I’ve been tied up with this week was an excellent website project! With last week’s creation being this very website, I was reluctant to focus this week’s creation on another web project. But I quite like the site, as well as the cause.
Solar Electric Exchange are a GTA (Greater Toronto Area) based solar panel installation company. In Ontario, the government is supporting the solar power industry by paying out $0.80/kWh to the owners of solar panels set up to contribute to the grid. As such, Ontario is quickly becoming a world leader in green energy production because it’s not only a conscientious choice, but it’s a great high-return investment.
I created the site on the WordPress platform. I love WordPress!! WeeklyCreations.com is built on WordPress as well. This open source software started as a blogging platform, but has grown into an exceptionally dynamic tool that can function as the back-end to virtually any type of contemporary website. Not only is it so well written and flexible enough of a platform that you can get a basic site up in minutes (like the initial launch of this site), but it’s also exceptionally user friendly to update, so clients love it! And with it being so flexible and dynamic, you can make a site as simple or complex as the circumstances require and always end up with something awesome.
Most of the additional functionality of SolarElectricExchange.com came from the vast selection of available WP plugins. There’s literally tens of thousands of them to choose from. Those were then embellished and sown together with some graphic design. I use Photoshop when I design. Having friends who have worked on half-million dollar websites for major name-brand clients because they can do magic when it comes to graphic design, I’m quite humble about my design skills. These days there’s a tonne of tutorials online to teach you just about anything that’s possible with Photoshop – thank God. 🙂
