Hi guys and girls.

Let me know what you think of my site.

The usual stuff

"Oh I love it , it's fantastic" Very Happy
"Aw man, it's terrible" Crying or Very sad

But seriously, check it out and let me know what you like and what you don't like.

Just click the My Indonesia graphic below to visit my site.

Thanks

Nice simple site!
Keep up the work!

Looks good, it is a little slow loading up the pictures though - you may want to reduce the quality of the images when loading several in a frame.

You may want to use a CSS style to set the background image, and preload the images so they load quicker.
paul_indo
Thanks for the comments.

The thumbnail images are around 11kb to 12kb each which I thought should be OK. I try to keep all the pages as small as possible, like around 100kb or so.

I will try your idea for a CSS style background and see if that helps.

Anyone else finding my pages slow to load? Please comment.

Looks like one more time server is down.... Sad

you are quite happy and enjoy your life

Well.. nice one Smile I'm Indonesian too, but I think it's better if you write some comment about the picture aglleries, not only the title Very Happy Annd of course the places (It's in Jakarta or other city Smile)
paul_indo
Yea you are right.

I will write a bit of info about the photos. I'm having trouble to find the time to get everything done at the moment, what with christmas and new year and all that, but hope to have lots of new photos up soon and a lot more info.

I'd love to hear some comments on the videos if anyone has viewed them.
Are they interesing?
Are they to big?
Do you like the page setup?

I am going to improve the full download links when I have time, they look really boring.

The samples I have tried to make as small as possible but they are the same quality as the main files which I think should be reasonable if viewed full screen.

I hate downloading poor quality videos, so I have tried to make mine as small as possible, but still good quality.
paul_indo
Come on please. Some comments on the videos.

Has anyone viewed them?
Pikokola
Nice vid, But I Think It's better if you put some vid about a culture or anything like that too.

About the full download link, I think It's better to use "<br>" than make new paragraph "<p>...</p>". It'll looks more nicely I guess (Or if you use Frontpage, for make a new line, use sift+enter beside enter. It'll create new line, not a new paragraph (It's has diferent range)
menhao
hey, paul, you web is really so beautiful and useful, i am Chinese, i do like your country, and faithfully, i hope i could get chance to travel in your place as well.
paul_indo
Thanks for the comments.

I checked out your sites, pikokola and menhao, they are interesting websites.

It is interesting to see that you are a mechanical engineer menhao, I am an aircraft engineer.
menhao
hi, paul, so you are already a engineer now, you work in the airport, dont you? actually, i am a graduate student student in college, so i wish i could be involved in some projects with air industry in the near future.

I think the site lacks content and is not about indonesia...
Although the videos were good..
The site looks like a personal site to me and tells me nothing
about indoesia.
Also there is absolutely no content that is of use to others except
your friends.

That's why it is "my-indonesia"

It is aimed at giving a glimpse of life in Indonesia from a personal point of view.
(A foriegner who has been living here for many years)
There are already plenty of plain info sites for general info on the country.

There is not enough content yet, you are right. I am working on that. I have some more travel photos and info to load soon.

I also have a surf video shot in West Java.

Whether the site will be popular or not I don't know but it is definitely going to show life in my indonesia, a personal perspective on things.

Thanks for the comments, I will try and get more content ASAP.

Glad you liked the videos.

Just added a cool PHP script so you can email me.

It hides the email address from spammers and robots and all that stuff.

It's a shareware script I found on the net.
Use it to email me and if you like it you can get it from here:

Yo paul_indo
tryd to view your Clip's thay dont load corectly for me dont worry tho its an error at my end but a smal proposition add a smal link or state what codecs are used to watch your vids.

Other than that i like'd the simplicity of the page i could as a matter of fact olmost smell the ocean from my cement and asphalt home.
paul_indo
Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the input.

The videos are windows media .wmv files. The samples are just short clips from the full files but same quality.
The sample links are actually java script to open in a seperate window so that the site can be viewed while the video loads.

The download links for the full clips have the file extensions visible. I hoped this would indicate the format.
Your right though, so I have just added a Windows Media logo to the page.

I have checked them in Firefox, Opera and IE. They work in all, or at least did untill I installed a heap of FireFox extensions.
Now the media player goes half offscreen to the right in my Firefox. Guess I'll have to unload the extensions to find which one is doing it.
When I know I'll put a note on the page to warn others.

P.S. I wish I was as good at graphic design as you are.

Hi

I,ve just added a lot of new photos in the Galleries.

City Life and Village Life.

I think some of you will find the village photos interesting as they show a glimpse of indonesia which foriegners rarely see.
I have tried to give a bit of useful info about them also.
Gallery 2 and 3 are all new pics taken this year.
They are from my wifes village which is about a 4 hour drive from Jakarta.

hope you enjoy them.

I am working hard on the language section and hope to have the first section ready in a week or two.
