About

The about page has been updated to include two snapshots of the website.  The last snapshot was from May 14, 2007.  The page itself can do with an update, but I felt this update deserved a mention.

EDIT: corrected the link to the May 14, 2007 snapshot.  Revised the page layout a little and removed/replaced some outdated info about the purpose of the website.  

 
Game Links (Misc)

Vampire the Masquerade, American McGee's Alice, and Silent Hill have been spun out from Game Links (Misc) and given their own pages to be expanded upon.  

 
Resources on homosexuality

A list of what I consider useful links to resources on homosexuality whether it be links to books, select articles, the harms of same sex marriage, or notable people.

The page was sorted and revised for readability and to make it easier to find the resources needed.  A few outdated links were removed.

Memo

I'm not sure what is going on with Opera right now.  It appears that after the restructuring with Opera to the Chromium engine many people who worked at Opera left and created the vivaldi browser. ref

I notice that in April there were also a good number of layoffs ref.

I plan on waiting to see how things turn out, but I do plan to keep vivaldi on my radar in case things go further south for Opera.  I have a lot invested in Opera and like how it runs and the direction it is heading as a browser, but we don't always see everything that happens behind the scenes.  I don't plan on making any big changes in browsers until things change more than they have; namely Opera going under and Vivaldi stabilizing.  It is all too early to say.

Update 9/2/15: 10 other browsers:

browzar
epic privacy browser
Maxthon
midori
seamonkey
vivaldi
IceDragon
Lunascape
torch
coowon

I've been unmotivated to complete work on the admin theme page or make the site load faster on mobile browsers.  No eta on either of those yet.

Before going to sleep last night I was able to make a good deal of progress in learning how my javascript worked.  I even found out how to fix it, but was too tired to fully implement it.  I hope to finish work on repairing the admin theme editor soon.

version 7.3 build 0

Filed under:website — vanderjagt.dc @ 10:42 PM

  1. The site is now mobile friendly.
  2. Added some css to the admin page for managing tags and linked the “number of times used” numbers to the tag itself.
  3. search feature updated to 5.8 to display two alternate dashes and the possessive single quote correctly in the search results.
  4. Removed the ID# that was listed before each news post result.

Making the site mobile friendly is actually a large change which prompted the move to 7.3. I still have some refinements I want to make to the layout, but these should mostly be quite minor in comparison. Upcoming changes include making the admin pages mobile friendly, refining the layout for a few content edit pages, continue to make the site more mobile friendly and to load faster.
