Grooves - Deep from the vaults of the Test Area! This
site is actually really old, but is just now being put on
the Test Area. It was going to be some sort of Flash based
dance page. The only Flash it employs in this form is a movie
that plays the song Bust-a-Move.
Version Portal - Only very early design work was done
on this possible phippy.com redesign. It suffers from navigational
problems though and does not look decent enough to have become
a full featured website. For these reasons it is now here.
Racing - Made as a site to be maintained by a friend,
this page never really got off the ground because of legal
issues that could be brought up if it ever started to work.
The main idea for the site was to be a hub for people to come
together and challenge eachother to car races through a Forum
system. People could also chat with eachother about cars as
well as other various subjects. At one point this site actually
had a working forum, but tech issues kept it from still working.
Even now I especially like the design on this site, and probably
would have impletemented the page if I could have.
- This site would have replaced Jon 3000 as my personal site.
Basically I just liked the name (jncx), because it was my
name without the o's between the letters. This site never
got beyond the creation of a logo and idea for site design.
Possibly later it could be revived, who knows...
(Test Area Note:
This site was actually brought back from the dead, although
with a slightly different design. You can see it here.)
USA - This site is actually more than a year old, but
just was never published here on the Test Area till now. The
idea for the site came a week after September 11th, 2001,
and basically would be a hub for information and news concerning
the United States. The idea for the site was scraped though
we I reliezed that maintaining this site would take a lot
of time and work. The design I still feel is strong though,
and I especially like the logo.
Redesign - I came rather close to actually publishing
this version of the phippy.com relaunch, but did not completely
like the design and decided to change to current design. I
felt this one looked too square and I did not like the logo
I made for this page.
Trip - I got this idea while watching some weird TV show,
and basically would be some sort of a public news forum where
people are able to post news about themselves that no one
would really care to read anywhere else. I know that this
would have taken programming knowledge though in order to
create some sort of CGI script most likely or something, so
I never really finished it. I imagine I could use some sort
of freeware thing to finish this site, but I don't think there
really is any demand for it.
Scary! - I actually made this awhile ago but have never
put it up on this site yet. Basically I made it around Halloween
time to try to get things "scary" or somethin. Anyway,
I ended up with a partially working site that never really
did anything. The attempted navigation system does not fully
work and the links just go to blank pages. Very small amount
of time spent on this site, but was meant to try to see if
a new design idea might work, which it didn't.
Online World of Jay Zilch - A site idea that I made revolving
around the name Jay Zilch. What I ended up creating was a
fictional website that a web-user named Jay Zilch might have
used. I tried to incorperate some little effects into the
page that make it look like you are using a computer in a
way. I also was experimenting with interesting backgrounds
and cool logos. Overall I like the site, but I doubt I could
write any good content for it.
Gap! - Originally part of the Phippy.com Old School website,
this website was an interesting idea at first but was never
updated and thus became simply a test. There were still several
errors with it in some browsers I believe, and it's interface
always loaded rather slow. Ignore the links back to Phippy.com
Old School, as they no longer work.
- This site was my first attempt at integrating digital video
into a website. The idea for this site was an online news
broadcast hosted by a stuffed animal with voices-overs. You
could view the video in Quicktime format and watch old news
broadcasts through archives. What stopped me from doing this
site full time was the time it took to create the videos and
the space the videos would have taken up on my web host. I
still enjoy this site though, as it was something I had never
- This site has been around for awhile now, I just have not
listed it here. It was supposed to be sort of a joke site
about super heroes you have never heard of, but I never got
around to really updating it, so here it is. This site also
had a flash intro I created, but it had problems and did not
work correctly. If you wish to view the flawed flash intro
Bulldozer - A VERY small site design I made basically
just from a title. I had originally thought that it could
be some sort of Online Business Magazine, but the site design
I made would not have been very easy to edit so I didn't attempt
at a full-featured site.
Auto Experience - A car site I was trying to make for
my friend. This site suffers from flawed design... I never
even got the chance to finish the design, so some parts look
kinda weird. Basically it just would have been a site devoted
Net - A site I made when I came up with the idea of Big
Rick, Rick, Athan, Othy and Bert. My plan was for it to be
a site that any of my friends could update as they please
with interesting and intriguing news items. This never happened
though as I never really liked the design.
Mono Stereo (Music
Version)- An idea I got by listening to the song Kick
Start My Heart by Motely Crue. It would be sort of an opinions
type site. Basically it would be a place for people to submit
their opinions on different issues. I could never get all
of the design issues resolved though, and I didn't really
like the idea for the site after awhile.
- An idea I had while drinking some energy drinks. It would
have basically been a site dedicated to these energy drinks
and products. It would have contained reviews and news on
new and interesting products. I really like the design on
this site except for the fact that it does not view correctly
in Netscape 4. If I actually knew what to put on this site
I might have fixed these problems.
Teacher Awards - My friend actually thought up this site
idea. I just sorta acted on it and made a very rough site
design for it. It would have been a site dedicated to handing
out awards to teachers who students think are the worst. This
would have been done with people sending us their worst teacher
stories, and us picking the winners. This project was stopped
on account that people did not like it (mainly people involved
