Cast of Horribles is ALIVE!

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

After a few weeks of work, I am proud to announce the launch of my new home for Cast of Horribles.

The coding was rather fun, as I moved away from flat files, and delivered all the content (including the doodles) through MySQL. I've used databases in the past, but not much. After programming the site, I realized how much of an idiot I was for not using a database for sewcrates. I think the revelation was almost at the level of my coffee awakening.

Along with the doodles, I'll also try to post short, pithy musings. They won't have the consternations or length of a sewcrates post, but they should be more frequent. I will continue to ply away at storytelling and longer musings on sewcrates, as well as uploading new photographs and keeping my about page more current with my list of books and movies--although, to be fair, my movies aren't updated as often since I've stopped buying DVDs and rent everything through Netflix.

I will continue to post the newest doodle on the front page of sewcrates, but have removed it from the RSS feed for annoying technical reasons (use the Cast of Horribles RSS feed).

Enjoy, and let me know how much you like/dislike the new site! I'm always up for suggestions. And as soon as I receive the expected Chuck e-mail, explaining how the design is terrible and unintuitive and downright ugly, I'll cry for a bit, before yanking it down and hopefully making it better. I've resolved myself to this course of action even before I post this.

Enough consternated self-loathing. (It wouldn't be a real sewcrates post without them!)
