The Next Big Update

I'm prepared to announce the first redesign of this website since 1/1/2010 (the last of the annual "New Year's Upgrades"). The goals, as always, are lofty. The date however is far off: July 10, 2015. This will almost coincide with the 10th anniversary of my move to Florida, and allow me to shift to newer software and equipment as my student loans start to get paid off. 2015 should also see the completion of the HTML5 standard , which will be a perfectly good excuse for me to finally start learning it. :)

I learned HTML in high school and PHP/SQL in college, even putting this knowledge to work on WLVG's original website (still the only good one they ever had) and then applying it here in 2007. I never embraced CSS, though, or much of anything since about 2004. I was happy for the moment. It made the "To Do" but it's a long list to be at the bottom of. Now Web 2.0 is finally going to be a priority.

The new version will be M33. "33" will match my age in 2015 (as 28 did in 2010). I'm also adding the letter M because 1) I like how it looks and 2) let's just make it stand for mobile. My primary goal in studying Web 2.0 and redesigning this site is making it more "mobile" across platforms. I already launched EG Mobile last year, but it's in beta and it shows. I want my website to shine on mobile phones as well as it does on the PC.

Oh, and more compliance with HTML standards. Yeah. Moving on...

I haven't brainstormed what M33 will look like yet, but the ideas are starting to trickle in. It'll easily be the biggest change since 2007. I still expect to use PHP, so the URLs probably won't change this time.

Comments are welcome as always!
