Trendy Since 2001

Tonight, Halloween Night 2003, marks the second anniversary of Two years ago, I uploaded the first version, a version so different that most people would not even recognize it. All it had was a brief biography, picture gallery made from HTML, and a quotes section. In honor of this momentous occasion, I decided to make some major changes to the site, in my ever persistent desire to remain in congruity with current online trends.

Notable changes to the site include:

  • The removal of the primary index page (which was just annoying);
  • Moving my blog to the front page (because the old front page served no purpose); and
  • The movement of the Links section to the main page, so people would actually click on them.

Other changes include the calendar effect for the archive links, as well as several thematic changes, including a new (actually old) color scheme and the menu now residing on the right side of the page. Finally, in a completely egotistical and self-serving coding effort, I have implemented a rudimentary RSS feed, so I can pretend people actually read this site and might want to have their favorite news readers aggregate it. For those of you who do not know what RSS is—and are already rather angered by my talking about technology—RSS is Really Simple Syndication; so, if you subscribe to my feed, you would know when I update my blog, and then, would not have to come to my site unless I did.

And in keeping with another trend over the last few years, I am once again working on Halloween Night, for the third year in a row. The first two years, I spent my night at the Computing Center, doing the late shift, and tonight, I will be on duty, unlocking doors for people who decide that they don't want to take their keys when they go out to party. Good times! I wouldn't have it any other way!
