Moving right along

Well, I have to say this has been going a lot quicker than I thought it would. Porting over all my old content has been a breeze, although I’ll probably spend some time in the future reworking some of it. I still need to rework the navigation and fix a slew of UI problems, but this thing may just end up being finished before Christmas!

The Upgrade Begins

I’ve begun exploring upgrading Punaro.com to work in conjunction with a blogging software. This site works off of a series of server side includes and a home grown content management system that I created for a project while I was still in college. While it was pretty neat-o in it’s day, that was almost 7 years ago and the PHP/MySQL revolution has replaced the technology that was cutting edge back then. I really have no desire to write another CMS myself, especially what I wrote was basically a precursor to modern-day blogging software. So thus begins my journey into the world of database-driven websites, that’s not Lotus-based. Based on my past implementation schedules, a new site should be ready by… 2007.
