In my spare time I have been playing with a redesign of the database that runs this site. Messing with more of the internal abilities of MySQL I think I will be able to half the number of queries required to make the site function.
So what’s in store? Well, I’ve been entertaining the idea of bringing comments back, but I am still worried about comment spam. I also have been working on a better way of categorizing and organizing posts in a way that will allow me to keep track of things easier and make it easy for readers to find what they are looking for.
Search functions has also been at the top of my list as I try to make it as fast and effective as possible.
So that’s where everything stands right now. I believe that most of the site’s searching abilities will be written using Python but I have not completely settled yet.
