website munging

Some time ago I abandoned the idea of wholesale website redesigns as something I don't have the stomach for with my personal site and decided on a process of slow evolution. Very slow evolution. This is a long winded way of saying that I've now made the front page of the site have actual content rather than it's previous pointless holding page.

It's involved taking my badly hacked up blosxom install and hacking it further such that I've now abandoned all hope of ever upgrading it. As it serves my purposes as is that's OK. I've also cobbled together a small script to pull the latest photos out and stick them on the front page. I should probably update the photo thing to generate RSS at some point.

I'm not altogether convinced about the placing of the photos but I'm not sure where else to put them. Of course it means I can't upload more than three new photos at a time but given my scanning rates that's not likely to be a problem...
