I got more seriously into coding (with the Ruby programming language) recently, and it mostly just showed my hollow skills up for what they are!
The side-effect of all of this extra computing was the computer I was using to to compute stopped computing. Massive hard-drive failure is always a great excuse for a clear out. I decided at the same time to finally update to the latest Joomla, then start trying to make my site a little more W3C compliant and the code more readable. Oh, and enable encryption on the site so I didn't end up with a database full of fake Russian hacker accounts (which is what happens without HTTPS).
None of this is remotely interesting for anyone else, but for posterity and my own gratification, I thought I'd update this page. More ACTUAL content will come soon.
