March 2019: Changes are coming to Morgus.com!
The original concept of this site was to 'keep it simple' in order to provide a
satisfying experience to visitors regardless of the age of their computers or
speed of their internet service. Eventually, upgrades were made to include
audio and video, made possible by faster computers, broadband internet and
animated content using Flash technology. But change is upon us again, and
we're past the point where morgus.com must change to keep up!
Some of the features previously found on the site have been removed or no
longer work properly. The Greeting Card function was disabled because of
security risks. Now, the Guest Book script is no longer supported, and new
comments can't be added. Also, many users now visit with tablet computers
and smartphones that have smaller displays, and some of those devices are
incapable of displaying the Flash content.
Fixing these issues will require a complete site rebuild, using responsive
web design -- a process that won't be quick or easy, but should yield a
consistent viewing experience for all users, regardless of the device or
browser they're using.
At present, I can't estimate a completion date, or guess which features may
have to be eliminated because there's no equivalent functionality in HTML5,
the suggested standard for modern websites. But it's coming...
We're pleased to announce that the Dr. is looking at the possibility of
presenting his experiments on a streaming platform at some point in the
future! Stay tuned, Friends of Science!
