The Ol' HTML Site Is Back (For Now....)

Yup, I got tired of the perl-based portal site. For one, I don't get enough visitors for it; two, it started getting problems, like with the memberlist page. Even if I switch back to a webportal-based site, it probably won't be WebApp. Perl is just too much of a beast, because of Window's and *nix's (Unix or Linux) different ways of programming and compiling Perl scripts. WebApp is programmed to work on *nix environments, and was never supported for the newby Windows servers. Hacking it to work decently on my host's Windows server was relatively easy, but there are still problems that I don't feel like tolerating anymore... Not to say that I don't support WebApp anymore, it's a wonderful portal script; anyone's that interested in using it should by all means go download it at http://www.web-app.org .

The only Perl scripts that will run on my site from now on are my old Cute Cast forum, my Paint BBS and my self-written image gallery script. I will probably get a FFAL script to handle links that visitors will add themselves, and a downloads script to handle future files I want to share with the public. Everything else will have to be updated by hand. I really shouldn't mind, because I need to stay keen on HTML and other various scripting langauges.

Besides moving back to the old site format, there are no real updates. I will have to update the site's main menu, which is made with Flash technology, to add links to the Paint BBS, contacts page, downloads page, and radio station (on hiatus). Other than that, I don't know when I will be able to do a real update. Right now, I'm supposed to be working on my last paper of the semester. >__>;;
