Another New Web Site Design

Writing about web page

Once again I redesigned my web site. This time I went for the minimalist no-content look, figuring if I have no content, it can't get out of date!

I'm planning to come up with a new design for my blog soon, then use that for posting anything that would have previously been on my web site (if I'd gotten round to it that is). Saves my the trouble of making a CMS or writing HTML pages, with the added advantage that some people will probably read it! I also need to tidy up the tags from the old entries since they're still as they were in the categories system.

Added: Please let me know if the JavaScript for the email link and next/previous photo [don't] work properly in your favourite browser. Thanks. - 16th

The Uniform Server

Writing about web page

I found The Uniform Server a while ago but only decided to try it out today and realised how useful it is. It allows you to run Apache & MySQL (inc PHP and Perl) on Windows without having to install them first. You can even run them from a USB flash drive.

It's so useful that I've now removed my old Apache & MySQL services and instead set up one of these for each of the web sites I am working on. That way I just run the server for the site I'm working on and I don't have to worry about virtual hosts or what settings will affect what sites. It also has the advantage that when I'm finished with a project I can just drag it to my Archive folder, and if I want to come back to it later I don't have to set up the web server and databases all over again, just run start.bat and it's ready to use again! - 11th
