Fun with systems

Well, this has been a quiet week as far as entries go, but a lot has been going on behind the scenes!

First of all, I added entries for all of our old photo albums on Ofoto to the Movable Type database, and managed to fake the entry dates so they appear correctly chronologically. You'll notice if you go to "Our Pictures" that the layout is now different. Instead of a bulleted list of Photo Albums, you'll see all the entries with brief descriptions. I'm still trying to figure out how to better present that information so there is not as much scrolling involved.

In addition, I set up a nifty little web statistics package so I can watch what goes on with my server and who visits my site. This is not as momentous as writing my own (which I would have liked to do, given more free time than I have) but it was fun to play with it and see the pwetty pictuwes! From now on, if you visit my site, I'll be watching you! :-)

The other thing I did this week was getting Tomcat set up. Again, not terribly difficult, but very rewarding. In the not too distant future I'll be announcing a new site related to this, and a great many other things I've been doing behind the scenes here.

None of this is earth-shattering, but I wanted anyone who was interested to know that I haven't abandoned my site this week, though few outward changes have occurred.

Until next time!
