Many may not know this, but I started this blog as a learning experience. I currently work as a Coldfusion developer at a web design company in Lexington, Kentucky, and this blog was my first real adventure in application programming.

Over the last year, I have learned alot, and shudder most times when I look “under the hood” of this beast.

Anyway, here’s some updates: I have added a “remember me” button that will allow users to login automatically when visiting the site. No more annoying logging in just to leave a comment (believe me, no one is more annoyed at that than me…). I have also gotten rid of the comment pop-up window and have decided to place the comments immediately below the relevant, highlighted post.

Moreover, I have placed more than one post on the “home” page. Under the original format, I was hesitant to post short topics simply because I did not want the longer, more developed ones to get lost in the archives. This new way should allow the visitor to quickly browse several of the most recent posts in one fell swoop, and will make me feel better about posting short, random posts about whatever.

Now for the goof: When I was updating my database, I accidentally made many of the posts take the same date. So if you are looking for a post from a specific date, there is a good chance that it will not be where you are looking. However, they are all still categorized properly, so hopefully that will be helpful.

That’s about it. At the present, I am at a crossroads with this layout. I like the idea, but I am definitely ready for a change. I hope to work on a new design over the next month, so be looking for that. In the meantime, I will be making application changes here and there in order to provide a good application framework upon which to build the new site.

Alright, I’m done. Thanks to everyone who frequents this blog, and I hope some of the small changes will be helpful to your experience here. Please let me know if you encounter any errors or problems with these changes.
