Dynamic Cubes – Building a Highrise on a Webpage

What is so cool about the newly created dynamic cubes — now fully functional — is that they not only provide eye-candy to the visitor, but they also multiply the amount of advertising space available to sponsors  by a factor of six!

Where before one could view one of the seven gates in each of the seven spaces , one can now view six of the seven gates in each space.

Sponsors will be able to rent an entire cube or multiple cubes, or any number of facets of a single cube that they share with other sponsors.

For the moment I have made the selection of cubes and their faces completely random.  Every 1000 milliseconds three cubes are randomly selected and each randomly rotated to show a different side.  With the current setting  I am able to control the

  1. the number of cubes rotated,
  2. the frequency of their rotation, and
  3. the time to complete a single rotation.

With minor modifications of the code, the randomness of the selection can be turned off and the rotation of sides can be made to order according to a sponsor’s need.

Further, I am able to replace any of the rotated sides with images, words, and even links to the sponsor’s website.

How is this for cool?  Was it worth waiting for?

Now, if I could only find a reliable place for podcasting and the means to afford it!  This task is still under way.

Life is full of surprises, but you can quit at anytime. No one owes you a living, but your parents, and even they are likely to make your life impossible, if you are not grateful. Certainly you are free to decide to be or not to be. The choice is yours; it is your freedom of last resort. Strive to be better, strive to be happy. Survival is a first step. It is primitive instinct. Although human, it does not distinguish you from other animals. So, if it is all that you want in life, please do not be surprised when others treat you like an ordinary animal.
