who would have thought
Today this site, born in a snowstorm, is one year old. To commemorate, a few new features. Firstly, notice the new search box in the upper right corner. The offsite service I was using wasn't flexible enoughit would only give results by the page, and since we archive pages by the month around here, this left something to be desired in accuracy. So now we've got some home-cooked Perl scripting which treats each daily entry as a separate entity. And of course it searches beyond the weblog proper, into features like the long-promised photo gallery, which is finally here. I never seem to take photos myself but always wind up with double prints of other people's, so the composition of my collection is kind of haphazard. I apologize for the fact that many people are underrepresented; give me photos and I will scan them. They don't even have to feature people I know, really, so long as they're interesting.
There are some smaller updates too, like the radar screen and the avatar, and I have given chapter headings to the archive index, which actually seems to provide a pretty good summary of the past year. Onward, upward, into the light.
