|One of the nice things about my job is that it seems to be considered somewhat productive to spend time working on miscellanious web development projects. Now, if there's something to fix on the site, then that obviously gets top priority as far as web design attention, followed by an special projects assigned by David (my boss). Most of the time, however, we're just told to do whatever. We have to be available for phone, email, and live online help chat, but can otherwise focus on whatever we wish.
As a result of this, I've gotten to start generating content for my site. I haven't started writing RAM entries yet, but even better than that, I'm adding new features. Turn your attention to the left sidebar, where you will notice the addition of a link to today's background (it's been running for two months, but I barely gave it a permanent link). Below that, you'll notice my first run of a search feature. Google first crawled my site forever ago, but I just barely got around to utilizing it to add rudamentary search capabilities. In the next four days, this will be replaced with my own search page. Google provides a decent site search, but I can make a much more comprehensive one myself because the *entire* site is database driven anyway.
Maybe over the next few weeks, I'll take a look at a massive redesign, but I'm still happy with the general feel of the site. Feel free (i.e., please) let me know what kind of features you would be interested in seeing added over the next few weeks.
