I haven’t done much work on the backend to the site, lately… Haven’t really been in a php mood, to be honest. I’m also working on some side projects (well, actually, I’m working on the main projects, and THIS is the side project).
I have, however, made some addition to the site, and nailed down some design. The left-hand sidebar will be for site navigation at the top, and text-based links of places I regularly visit below. If I add a blog-roll of bloggers I regularly read (though there aren’t that many), I’ll put it there.
The right-hand sidebar includes my currents info, and graphical links. Currently the sections are: links to houston-related sites (especially blogs, including bloghouston, htownblogs, and houston metroblogging); Various links, and “Terror of War.” This last section includes a rather humourous graphic showing the current terror level, and a java-based graphic showing the number of deaths reported since the war began as well as some scrolling lists of civilian casulties (the min/max are because accounts vary as to the number of actual dead… Even one, is too high).
Beyond that, you will find my copyright information. As I mentioned before, my template was originally designed by Andrew Tedstone, and is availible at Open Source Web Design.
