Our site got a little face lift and engine upgrade this year. Our new site is up at the old address http://www.blarglefish.com. I’ve got a weird obsession with Java so the new website is done in JSP and was a lot of fun to create.
Just a few things new in this years site:
Organized picture gallery - Last year the picture gallery was an insane jumble of HTML but it’s now just 60 lines of JSP and a MySQL database… makes life so much easier.
Calendar - Fairly simple calendar just drawn out with some a couple of for loops and using MySQL database to store events.
Guestbook - Yet another simple thing using JSP and MySQL… please sign it!
Files archive - Nifty thing I wrote that dynamically creates a file archive based on the contents of the /archives folder on the server so whenever a new file is uploaded it automatically gets a link in the file archives. Can be divided into subfolders and each folder can have a comments file that allows a little note to be made about files and displayed in the archives.
Hit counter - Nothing really fancy here… just threw this together the other night because I was bored. Like the countdown clock above it, it displays in binary so we really haven’t had 101011 visits, it’s more like 43.
Hope you guys like the site
