Website revision history
12-Nov-2003 - I'm experimenting with a true blogging package. You can see what little there is at
this link. I'm really looking for a better content
management solution than FrontPage. I may move to PostNuke, since it supports both gallery and phpBB2 as modules.
31-Jul-2003 - Remove the silly counters, because silly TheCounter.com decided to start charging a silly fee for
everyone. When I save up enough tuits, I may add my own counters. Or maybe not.
26-Mar-2003 - Posted long-overdue changes to the cancer pages, reactivated my work webcam.
10-Feb-2003 - Added link to permanent forums, updated SQL versions page, other minor fixes.
07-Oct-2002 - Most updates have been happening in the gallery. We have pictures of Ethan's attempt to redecorate
his room and other recent events, some new Ethan items at Cafe Press. I spent some time working on a sub-website
for friends who adopted from China (see TongShan site).
I've also been toying with opening a discussion forum of some sort to allow/encourage more participation among
visitors. I have two options set up for testing - see the links above to try them out. While Frontpage
takes care of a lot of details, it continues to be a bottleneck in getting the simplest updates pushed out to
the web. I'm thinking a forum arrangement may make it easier to keep this up to date, though I need to
figure out how I could continue to have some static pages like the versions page and Cancer pages.
28-Apr-2002 - Added a slew of pictures (just one slew this time) from
Chris & Lyndsey's wedding,
various shots around the house and with
friends, as well as this important
picture. The Gallery link now takes you to the new photo gallery.
23-Feb-2002 - Added another cancer story, added pictures of our
vacation in Orlando to the gallery.
29-Jan-2002 - I've opened a store at Cafe Press where you can
now buy t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs and so on with Ethan's picture on them. Check it out, and let me know
what other gallery photos you'd like to see on items. Also, I've uploaded most everything from Christmas,
New Years, my dad's 70th birthday party and random snapshots in between to the
12-Dec-2001 - Added a folder of webcam photos from Ethan's 2nd
birthday party. Have a look at all his presents.

a while until I get all my recent photos uploaded and organized.
06-Nov-2001 - Added a full-fledged photo gallery app, to make it easier for me to add new photos.

12-Sep-2001 - Moved archives off the top banner, added a favorite icon for those browsers
