To everyone: I'm sure you've noticed the lack of updates here... I've been busy re-writing the code base for the site (again). And properly this time, not like the last couple of times where I've poked at it a bit. No, the entire site was re-written from the ground up over the course of the last seven months.
It had got to the point where I simply couldn't maintain the old code base, as it had been hacked upon and expanded multiple times over the nine years it powered the site. The new setup is allows me to expand the code base with greater ease, less bugs, less breaking of existing features, and better resource management (so better page loading times).
So expect a much more stable experience going forward.And now I need to get back out into the field and away from the computer for a while.
