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. You may quit, though, if you have grown weary of their outcomes. For, after all, survival is but a first step. It is a primitive instinct, and although human, does not distinguish you from other animals. Accordingly, if it is all that you can achieve in life, do not be surprised that others treat you like an ordinary animal. Alas, it is good justification to depart when you have grown weary. Before you go, however, look deep inside, for society owes you nothing, and even your parents are likely to forsake you, if you are not grateful. Look to see, if you are not the cause of your own demise. Have you said thanks for all that you have received, and have you given in return for all that you have taken? John F. Kennedy once stated "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country". Obviously, he was not thinking of taxes, but the help that he would require to become an effective president. Little that is great can be achieved alone. Then too, it takes great leaders to motivate humanity and move it forward in a manner that we can pave the way to a better tomorrow. The world is in need of good leaders. In the end, no one owes you a living, but if people see you struggling they are apt to lend a hand. Just do not be afraid to reach out. And, do not quit, if nothing is given in return. You have a right to your own life and the pursuit of your own happiness, so do not be afraid to claim what is yours. Just do not take what belongs to others, if it not without their permission or obtained in fair competition. And, cry out when you have been cheated, but only if there is something to be gained from your cries, for few people like a cry-baby. Be judicious, strategic, and select your battles wisely. Do not waste your time with trivial injustices, for we all make errors, and we are all, therefore, subject to the injustice of others. It is the very thought of exercising my freedom of last resort that keeps me alive, for it is the comfort that I can put an end to my suffering at any time that allows me to endure enormous pain. It is what gives me the courage to fight for what is right without fear of losing. It is a powerful freedom that you should never surrender! Just do not make pain your goal, or you will surely finish a loser. Then too, never place pleasure over goodness and know to distinguish between the two. In liberty, Roddy
