Pi Day Updates

Happy Pi Day!

To honour this international celebration in a completely unrelated way, I have rewritten my website's content management system. The old version was only partially built when I started using it on 2005-07-02, and updating my website was far more tedious than it should have been. I decided it was easier to rewrite than to resume, and I'm very satisfied with the finished product.

Here's a summary of the changes:

  • The layout has been redesigned to make pages less awkward in web browsers that are text-based and/or lack CSS support.
  • Pages load faster, require less bandwidth, and consume less electricity.
  • The minimum display resolution I recommend has been raised from 640x480 pixels to 800x600 pixels.
  • Redesigned the menu.
  • Redesigned the News page.
  • Converted the News Web Feed into Atom format.
  • Created a page for my company.
  • Created a page for my personal content.
  • Created a page for links to other websites.

Rather than limit this "News" section to posts about my own website, I've decided to start posting links to external content that I think is worth sharing. Like my site's content, the links I post will not necessarily be appropriate for all audiences, so viewer discretion is advised.
