Still Recovering

So, Happy Hew Year and all! And no, I’m not recovering from a hangover this time around. I managed to get that out of my system about two weeks ago after an office party.
I never had any idea what I was getting in to with all these changes. I first got in to the who CSS thing. Okay, one 500 page book later, I’m not using tables anymore and that’s cool.
Next, it was the whole mod_rewrite bit. That was no problem due to a script a co-worker had for .htaccess file. That’s up and running, so everything’s good now.
But, then there was the templating system. Therein lies the rub. It’s not been the easiest thing to get the hang of. I think a large part of it is because I’m having to reverse engineer what someone else did, in order to understand what I need to do, but I also need to learn some other programming concepts that I’ve been horribly lax on trying to learn.
It’s all for the better of course and as you can see, the Blog portion is pretty much back together. Other things are going to take a bit longer, but I’ll be sticking with it and it should all come back in to existence soon. Naturally, I’m realizing that limiting my variables would have been a better option in all of this, but hey, I’ve never been one to do thigns the easy way.
