You'll notice some changes to the site organization today (despite what I said the last time I made changes). ZedneWeb has evolved considerably over the years (and one of these days I'll repost my original front page, just to demonstrate that). When this section started, I intended it as a simple update list, but it expanded to include interesting links and general commentary. For a while I tried to split the commentary into separate articles, but the only effect that had was to prevent me from ever commenting on stuff. So instead I've gone the "weblog" route. Will this work out? Stay tuned.
Of course, a mere change in style wouldn't account for the fact that suddenly there's a bazillion pages with little calenders on the bottom. That came about because I decided to use computers to make the updating job easier, and then I figured, "Hey, if some Perl script is going to handle putting the most recent news on the front page, why not have it do harder stuff that I'd never bother with if I had to do it by hand?" Plus, it turns out that many Unix platforms have a built-in calender-generating tool; which makes production of those little tables almost trivial. (Of course, now it's really obvious how rare these updates are.) #
