If you are returning to this site after a long absence, you may be confused by the new look. If you are merely arriving for the first time, you may be confused because this site is pointless and confusing.
Either way, I've spent a bit of the last week overhauling ChrisBoylan.com. Normally, I'd do the work in secret, and only reveal it when it was done, but I decided against this because I wouldn't be able to prove I was actually doing anything. On top of that, the half-finished, haphazard nature of the site that is seen by the public embarrasses me - which is a great motivator.
In the meantime, you can check out a few things that have long been neglected - but now are implemented. For instance, for the first time in two years the infamous Chris Boylan Forum has returned. If you enjoy reading posts from over two years ago, check it out. Also, hidden in the blog section are posts from my first blog - I've imported the over 100 posts into Joomla, returning a huge chunk of old content to the web.
So, still on the todo list:
- Create a new design for the site
- Get comments working (this requires me to write a plugin to connect phpBB- the forum - and Joomla)
- Add "The Compendium" (details to follow).
- Add 3-plus years of pictures
- Get bloggifyin'
- Get podcastin'
So, back to the salt mines.
