Hakumei.net Version 3.0

Launch Site

Personal website I created to blog my two years in the Land of the Rising Sun. Since none of the free online blogs and photo galleries could handle the number of images I wanted to show effectively, I designed the site from the ground up as a full-fledged database driven weblog and photo gallery.

I used MySQL for the database, PHP for the front-end/back-end interaction, and Macromedia Flash® to bring it all to the viewer. There is also a crude but functional CMS I built to add entries and photos.

The site even changes depending on the time of day it is viewed, which is based on the current time in Japan (since that was where I was). Please follow the link and have a look. You can even enjoy my memoirs from a life in Japan to boot!
