Happy birthday,!

January 5th, 2008 at 1:33 pm

Apparently I've been running this website for four solid years now.  That's right, today, January 5th, marks the 4th birthday of  Every year this day comes around, and I feel like doing something special, but I never get around to it.  Well, this year is different.  Today I'm making my new photo gallery system live!  In the past weeks I have been working on building a new underlying infrastructure to manage my mounds of photos stored on this website.  So take a look at the newly redesigned to try out some new things.  Other than the layout, not much has changed from a user's perspective.  The fact that many photos are tagged and drive the tag cloud display is certainly new, but it is only a hint at what lies ahead.  Now that I have a better database-driven engine to manage my photos, in the future you'll be able to select your own favorite images, add tags yourself, view the most popular photos, and a host of other cool things.  In my usual style, all this is hand-coded, so let me know of improvements I could make as I go forward!  Enjoy 🙂
