CarverFest Website!!! ((( UPDATED )))

CARVERAUDIO.COM HAS OFFERED TO HOST THE OFFICIAL CARVERFest PAGES FROM NOW ON.
http://www.CarverAudio.com/CarverFest



I've decided that in my copious spare time, i should do SOMETHING productive and I've started working on a website for the CarverFest. I can't really do much with it, because the pictures and name lists and stuff won't exist until we actually get there!

When I get my Paypal account a little more beefed up, I'll put an automatic PayPal button on the T-Shirt Purchase page.


Take a look, and let me know what you think!

Thanks,
--Richard

Does that mean we're going to add a "who barfed first" category as well...?? O:)

Here's kind of how I see it breaking down:

Who Attended
This will be where I put pics of all the attendees, either candid shots or maybe each person in front of their favorite piece of gear.

Who Brought What
I thought we'd get pics of each person in front of the stack of gear they brought, and list each component.

Carver Gear
Here is where we'd have close-up pics of each individual Carver component that was brought, and list who brought it, and maybe tech specs--weight, size, response, watts, etc.

Carver Speakers
I realize tha tthis is a little redundant--perhaps we should put speakers under "Carver Gear", an duse this link for "Fest Pics". We could post all those random pics we take--grilling, eating, drinking, hanging out, playing with our gear, etc...

Non-Carver Gear
I know, I know, this is CARVER Fest, but there WILL be some other great gear there too (cables, speakers, CD players, DACs, TTs, etc) so I thought we chould give props to the components we have so lovingly matched up with our carver gems.

Contacts
I'll put my contact (email, Yahoo IM, Apple iChat, etc)info here, and anyone else who wants to can put their direct email here too...

How's that for explaining things? I'll change that "Speakers Link" tonight, and re-post the files...

BTW, I made that mock-M400t meter animated GIF from scratch, using Illustrator to trace a pic of an M-44t from EBAY, then took it into PhotoShop to apply the different glowing lights and such, then used a freeware package called GifAnimator to put the animated GIF together and work out the time delays etc.

Thanks for your comments,
--Richard

That's pretty slick, Richard, even if I'm partial to the big M500t meters.

I'm partial to the M-500 meters, and th eround Silver 7 style meters too, but the stacked LEDs just lend themselves REALLY well to GIF animation...

Next year, perhaps I'll make an animated Flash site, and we can have M-500t meters bouncing around... :)

What a great idea! The next best thing to being there. Will be way cool to see the gear that makes it to the Fest, but I'm sure the "action" photos of attendees will steal the show.

The Fest site looks great and the format is definitely Carver -- I wouldn't change it too much.

First the shirts, now the site... you're on a roll, Dreamer. Thanks!

Preliminary indications are saying that we will be able to have parts of the "Fest" available online as it happens........we will find out more in the days to come. Keep your fingers crossed [-o<
