Christmas Eve update


Comments (17) | Views (1,102)

StarJust a quick update to wish everyone and their loved ones a very happy holiday. Thank you kindly for your visits and for your comments, it makes maintaining the site so very worthwhile to me. =)

Today I removed the "best of 2004" banner from all of the individual pages as it was hogging the CPU and leaving little to play the games with. If you experienced any inconvenience from that, I apologize. My Flash skills are improving, but I still have a ways to go. Thank you, Grant, for making me aware of the problem.

I also want to thank everyone who has participated so far in voting for the Best of 2004. Response has been better than I expected and your votes will help make the selection easier. There have been a lot of great games posted to this site this year, and narrowing it down to just the top 10 is rather difficult. If you haven't yet voted, you still have a couple more days to get your votes in for your favorite games. Voting is easy, just go to the Voting page. Click.

And speaking of favorites, I have modified the Favorites page to make it easier for those whose browser does not support the Drag-and-Drop feature. Clicking on a game icon will move it to your favorites, and Shift-Clicking on an icon in your favorites will remove it. Also, the Favorites dock now scrolls with the page since there have been many new games added to the list to choose from. To save your favorite games for easy access, just go to the Favorites page. Click.

I have 10 invitations for free Google email accounts to give away. If you still don't have one of these, you should get one now. Just send me a valid email address with which to receive it.

And finally, I have just one question to ask: jayis.net or jayisgames.com?

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, or whatever it is that your religion or your culture celebrates. Have a safe, warm, and soulful holiday season. Peace. =)

jayisgames.com! what a thought! that would be rather awesome since i can barely remember the complicated url while at school!

(on a quick note, i noticed that some of the favorites icons turn up with broken images and/or missing pages when you use the favorites section, i believe one of them was a DNA sequencer game before the page went missing)

Thank you, Dreamisle. The problem is now fixed. It was due to a bug in the favorites code that prevented a few games from showing up outside the favorites page. Wow! I am glad you alerted me to that one. =)

you can apply both domain names if you afford. You redirect to speficy domain name whatever you like. Otherwise, jayis.com is original, easier to remember.

Well, you see, David, that is precisely the problem. I do not own jayis.com. It is not available. I own jayis.net, but I am afraid that people would confuse it with jayis.com, as you just did. :/

I am leaning toward jayisgames.com, yet I will certainly redirect jayis.net, except I probably won't publicize it for the reason above.

Thanks for your input! =)

jayisgames.com :-)

jayis.net would be great for personal stuff though...

Merry Christmas to yourself as well!

No problem, Jay. I would definetely agree with jayisgames.com. Seems simple and easy to remember. I keep having to Google your site every time I want it. Bad memory. ;)

Definitely, i would go with jayis.net - it leaves room for expansion and growth should/when Jay decides he is more than games.
