Christmas special - I wanna be your light

Written by Cynthia Fridsma

Amsterdam, December 26, 2004
You haven’t heard from me since the middle of November and this had to do with a ‘Christmas special’ that I’ve been working on since the beginning of November because I wanted to do something special for all of you. There’s so much going on around the world nowadays. Things that aren’t my cup of tea like violence and intolerancy. That’s why I thought to myself: the people need something nice and sweet instead.

That’s when I decided to create a computer animation based on Heather’s ‘I wanna be your light’ song that you can find on her Storm album. Heather’s song ‘I wanna be your light’ is great and I decided to do some ‘magic’ with the song and created a short video clip ( approx. 6 minutes) with some real footage, photos and computer animations / graphics.

I wasn’t pleased at the begin but the results are quite pleasing now and I like to present to you ‘I wanna be your light’, which includes some real footage from Heather.

Take care and I wish you all the best for 2005!

Go to the section “Multimedia, a tribute to Heather, Xmas special - high quality” to see the clip in QuickTime media player (high quality for broadband users only) or go to the section "Multimedia, a tribute to Heather, Xmas special - medium" to see the clip in medium quality for everybody else with MS Windows Media player.

Webdesigner tips & Tricks

written by Cynthia Fridsma

In the previous issue I recommended that you should avoid the use of frames because search engines aren’t compatible with them and you might loose some visitors. I also explained that you should start on paper before working anything out on your computer.

Now we’ll step forward to the next step:
Create a layout for your site.

Before you start, you should think about using tables because your can control your layout better with the use of tables. It’s no problem if you have never used tables before, because I will explain them down beneath with the HTML codes.

First you need to open a text editor (like notepad) and start to define your table. Write down (or copy & past) the following code:

Interview with Cynthia Fridsma by your local reporter for the HN Online Magazine.

Perhaps you wonder who Cynthia Fridsma is? Well... the answer is simple: she’s the webmaster of the Online Magazine, the girl behind the HeahterNova CD Project and she also created the ‘HN-toolbar’ that you can find at http://www.heathernova.info

Cynthia, born on February 25, 1968 is now married with Gerard Reniers, born on July 30, 1954 and I was invited at Cynthia’s place in Amsterdam North to talk about her wedding. I was curious about her wedding dress and Cynthia told me that it was a ‘Sissy alike dress’ which made me even more curious. I was invited for the wedding but I had other obligations so I didn’t see her wedding dress.

A new forum

Written by: Cynthia Fridsma

It sure took a long time, but now you can find a forum on the .COM site

It's a good thing that there's a forum out there on the offical site. Well... it sure means that we can stop with our forum, almost nobody came anyway, and give some extra support to the .COM site instead.

There's only one but: I don't like the combination of the colors red and white, they don't mix if you ask me.
