Kicking Clutter’s Ass

SEEING AS IT’S THE END OF THE MONTH and I’ve been wanting to have a proper archives pages for some time, I finally sat down and went nose to nose with the CMS that keeps this site in order.

WARNING: GEEKY SHOP-TALK AHEAD

After sifting through some posts from the fine folks over at the Textpattern forum, setting up some messy URLs, page templates, forms and a couple of cans of iced tea later, there’s now a proper archives page for you to dig through. I may even go back to Day One of this website and bring all non-Textpattern posts aboard, seeing as they’re currently not available to you (I know, the nerve). A hat-tip to the Daring Fireball for the general layout idea. Screw trying to organize posts by month – my brain and bladder can only hold so much.

With this new-found know-how, I couldn’t just stop there. I had to re-do all the now former HTML pages with in-house templates, forms, messy URLs etc., just to keep things nice and manageable.

Don’t get me started on the photos page.

On a lighter, though still somewhat geeky note: in between trips to the fridge for beverages, I noticed that the boy is watching re-re-re-runs of the old Spiderman cartoons that I used to watch at his age on Saturday mornings. I’ll probably just wait for him to pick up the newly released DVD of that series.
