With the beginning of the year 2010, I have launched my new website: www.paulslab.com, with an all new layout, theme, webshop and a lot of new content. In the following weeks more content will be added and the webshop will be filled with lovely products for you all to buy. The dutch version will also be translated and if you have any questions about the new website, don't hesitate to contact me. I hope you will enjoy the new interface, with many new features!
Special news, I have acquired the domain name www.paulslab.com! This will make my website easier to find and now I can split it more easily between two languages. Because I have to wait until the domain name transfer is complete I will be restyling the website (again!). The website will be easier to surf, it has a new helpful option to increase the font-size for those who need it and the overall look and feel is much more professional. I hope to launch it in two months.
Finally! The website is finished, well finished, it looks the way I want it and it behaves they way I want it. I have to add a lot of content (and translate parts to English), but I have done some of that already. There are a lot of new videos in the video gallery, minerals have extra photos and I added sizes to many specimens. The webshop has been fully rebuilt and will be opened soon!
I have adjusted the navigation, making the information better organized and easier to navigate. I have made more subcategories now that I have more room in the menu. The photo gallery has been split up in sections, the same goes for the video gallery and the downloads section. The webshop will be updated later on, making it more interactive and user friendly. In the mean time I succeeded in connecting my camera to my microscope and I will upload photos soon. I will also be writing some articles on photography, microscopy and about the combination of both, for those who want to do it themselves.
I have added many new minerals and updated existing ones with new information or photos. At the moment I'm trying to connect my photo camera to my microscope in order to get some beautiful close-up photos of my minerals and crystals. Today I have found a new way of making crystals which I will describe later on in the experiments section. I will add some DIY-kits to my webshop soon, giving you the right stuff to make your own crystals or view them through a microscope. I'm also working on the English translation of my website.
The website has had its last big technical update, to optimize the loading speed. Images have been compressed and the code has been dramatically altered. Every page has advertisement now. Soon, I will place more items in the webshop and write more experiments and update the existing ones with more material, including photos. I'll also record some more videos of growing crystals.
The webshop and photo gallery have had a technical update, so that people with a very small screen can still see everything (even though with a bit of scrolling down). I have altered the style of some components and the download section is filled with some nice downloads. I will place some new jewellery and crystals in the webshop soon, after which I will be updating the information section.
