Website and reading list updates!

I’ve spend the last couple of nights revamping my website and my reading list pages. They are finally at a point where I have once again made them public. So what has changed?

Website

  • Transformed to simple HTML
  • Reorganized content
  • Brought content up-to-date

Reading List

  • Complete rewrite using PHP and MySQL
  • Simple HTML
  • Dynamic queries to the database
  • Improved summary page
  • Dynamic list pages
  • Search capabilities
  • Progress/pace for current reading

There’s still more to do. In the not too distant future there will be links to LibraryThing, RSS feeds, and advanced search capabilities. In the meantime, after about a year of manually maintaining my reading list and associated statistics, the site is once again automated.
