My personal projects have started to progress a bit again, at least I have managed to finish off a couple of the semi-finished projects I had on my harddisk. One of these is a script to fix the broken behaviour of Microsoft Internet Explorer when rendering the <q> element, see the HTML 4.01 standard. I have already deployed this site using it (you should be able to notice it on the
Ruminations pages if you're running Internet Explorer 6).
Apart from that I have also continued development on the site, in particular stuff that goes on behind the scenes: the Content Management System. This system is responsible for adding/editing news items, generating the site from templated PHP-files into static HTML files (to speed up your viewing pleasure), and to generate thumbnails and whatnot for the digital photo and gallery sections. Perhaps if I feel the inclination I will make a bit stronger system and release it as a regular CMS framework.
