Well, the new site is up and for the most part working. I know that I haven’t been updating the site much which is primarily due to an egregious oversight on my part. When I was transferring over to my new laptop, I inadvertently lost all of the source code and custom software for the last version of the site. Besides, the old site had a lot of quirks and was becoming increasingly hard to take care of. So I’ve taken upon myself to design my own site for the first time in a great many years.
I have really paired down this version of the site to its bare necessities. Really, many of the sections on the old website should have been stored in the blog. So I’ve moved all of the old essays and movie reviews over to the blog. I’ve also removed the guestbook which is better served by the comments section on the blog. Finally, I’ve tried to incorporate a design that works in all browsers accurately which the old one was atrociously poor at.
However, I should say that the site is not entirely completed. You won’t see any large number of image galleries showing up because I still have to complete my image resizing and uploading tool. However, it’s a good start.
I want to give thanks to my colleague Jason Zimdars whose website ThinkCage.com filled in many of the gaps in my knowledge of style sheets.
Hope you like the new look. Let me know what you think and come back for some more frequent updates.
