UNIQUE ~ DIANE NEAL ONLINE
»» About Diane Neal Online
Diane Neal Online began humbly as a subdomain of SAMSKARA.ORG, a website created by me (your eponymous leader) as a springboard to publishing my novel of the same name online. It was created on 06 May 2006 with the intent to create a website to honour the work of Diane Neal. Like all things with this webmaster, the site began with just a photo gallery waiting to be populated. Over the next couple of years, it sat dormant waiting to be populated with content. For three years I collected things on Diane because I decided she’d be a composite for a character in my novel. The intent was to create separate websites under the main domain in order to make an impression on the web as to why Diane and others I’d chosen as other composites for characters. I’d decided to use one word that would make the mark as to what I felt about the individual, and for Diane, I’d chosen the word….UNIQUE.
Over the course of time I’d learned HTML coding and various other sundry things one needs to learn to build a half assed website, but still things just didn’t come together. Until 2008 when I’d finally learned that all too important of scripting languages PHP, and voila….This website was born 31 March 2009. After copious screencapping and uploading and learning how to set up stuff DIANE NEAL ONLINE came to fruition. I’d also learned how to set up a video site so I did with Diane and her SVU co-star Adam Beach. That site is an external housing of videos named DNA MEDIA: DIANE AND ADAM MEDIA. Now after a much needed facelift, DIANE NEAL ONLINE now exists as a strong presence on the web for information regarding Diane.
Finally I decided to buy a separate domain for this site and moved it from it’s subdomain status and established this new space. Before Christmas 2010, I contacted a fantastic website designer named Christine @ PINKCHAOS.ORG and asked if she would create a template for this new site and with a brand spanking new installation of WordPress and Coppermine I uploaded the new designs and here we are!
