Online media matters


Why I’m doing this

Starting to play, finally, with MySQL and PHP. I’ve always been a “client-side guy” whose hands rarely got dirty with the server side of things. Sure I’d played with , and some ASP and PHP, but nothing much.

So far, I’ve got a couple tables created to house the site’s content, a CMS front-end, and some rudimentary templates.

If things work out as planned, I plan on:

The last item will, I hope, improve the sites performance, keep the changes persistent from page to page, and make maintenance easier for me. An added bonus for doing this: the preferences will be available to more browser. Currently, these preferences are written onto the page, and controlled via the W3C’s DOM. While powerful, it is unfortunately not consistently supported by the modern browsers.
