see nerd) blog — change

I want to give this site a major overhaul.

I’ve tried packages such as Apple’s iLife. This blog, and the new ‘casts, are produced by iLife. It creates good looking results that fit neatly into a good looking, small site, formula. That’s not me.

I’ve tried packages for larger sites, such as Microsoft’s Expression Web. They create good looking results that fit neatly into a good looking, corporate, formula. That’s not me either.

Most of this site is hand–coded HTML. I’ll have to write a program to migrate the existing content. If I’m going to do that, I might as well go further and build software to generate the new site.

Since I’m writing the software, I can fully control the results; I don’t have to submit to someone else’s meta–template. So I’m aiming for a site that’ll visually appeal to a photographer (me), with content that appeals to a poet (me), assembled by a programmer (me). And all three object to fuss. But this will occupy me. You should expect fewer updates in the meantime.
