There’s a new version now up. For non-purchasers of Behold, Behold had only 4 days left until it expired. So I needed to release a new version, even though all it has new is 2 small bug fixes.
I didn’t realize until now how long this site redevelopment has been taking. It’s now two months and still isn’t finished. But that’s because I’m tacking everything on: A new website. A new web host. A new blog tool. New forum software. New mailing software. New automation scripts. In the meantime, other than new software, I’ve also learned the PHP script language, mySQL database, and CSS web markup. So I’ve been busy and my head hurts.
I’ve come to realize that it was necessary to do this prior to getting to beta and then version 1.0. Soon my site will be ready for growth and increased traffic. Will that happen? I hope so, but at least I’ll have a nice modern site with all the tools in place to handle it if and when it does.
So with all decisions in place, it’s just a matter of implementing everything, bit by bit, until it’s done. My current Behold website uses 8 year old HTML/ASP/Access technology that lasted up to now. This rewrite will bring my site into the new CSS/PHP/mySQL world, and should hopefully last me for 8 more years.
