Web Services for a Christmas Card

Every year since I gave up my own virtual domain host, it is the same procedure: I´m trying to get some interactive email running for our best friends and family, but on standard web services.

Last year, I hosted it as a Google Site post  and it was quite suboptimal. Especially the Embed Gadget with an integrated media player playlist is neither pretty nor will it automatically play in all browsers.

This year, I was more lucky. First, the Grooveshark Widget is a quite nice flash player to interface one of the most complete hosts for popular music. Next, I found the PasteHtml Service is a great host that publishes your java-script enabled web-page without hastle. A nice snow generator can be found under Kostenlose Javascripts.

So here is the quite satisfying result … and remember not to eat that yellow snow!
