You are visitor number since 20 April 2000!
250+ web pages, in 4 different original page designs (links at the bottom of this page), comprise the scores of sub-sites within the main U.S. Army Military Police Web Site.
My site/page designs were copied by several other Military Police units around the world.
I created scores of original moving graphics to enhance the site and Military Police individual unit espirit d' corps. Here are a few examples:
Reload the page to see the graphics below move (they aren't continuously-moving like the ones above).
All site graphics were optimized for fast loading--this cut the load time in half for off-post dial-up users to about 30 seconds at 28.8. There was NO DELAY loading this page from our Intranet. I was just about to convert these JAVA pages to Flash when I was reassigned. An identical Flash page would load with virtually no delay.
In reference to the quality of the soldiers' photos in the JAVA image swapping applet at the top of this page: Military Police Corps priorities did not/do not include sufficient manpower or budget for a more professional-looking Military Police Internet presence. The Military Police Corps believes its budget is better spent on equipment and training for the protection of its Troops than on high-speed web sites.
Exhaustive site content research performed solely by me.
Dozens of sound files recorded and optimized for fast loading by me. Turn up your speakers (but not too loud) and reload this page for an example. Other sounds will load on the other MP Homepage examples in our Portfolio.
This page's background sound (pistols firing) corresponded EXACTLY with the moving graphic of the pistols firing on the original page--when loaded the first time through our Intranet, as well as at 28.8 on the Internet during successive return visits following an initial visit. *It's not possible with moving Gif images, or through the use of HTML or JAVA programming, to assign a sound to correspond with the movement of a moving Gif. I was able to pull this off, however, through the specific placement of the sound file's HTML code within the overall page's code.
These page designs tested perfectly in several different browsers and screen resolutions.
The JAVA image swapping applet appeared in the center of the screen and the original page required no scrolling.
Hidden moving/appearing graphics throughout the site added signature coolness!
No stone left unturned--extreme attention to detail!
The following links are examples of my other 3 original page designs within the web site:
