OK, here's the deal: Over the years, I have tried lots of different ways of handling the content at this site, including custom Python scripts, straight HTML, and off-the-shelf content management systems. Two years ago, I decided to switch for the last time (ha!) to Joomla. After two years of that, I can't stand its restrictions and the general pain of adding content. So now I'm back to straight HTML. This will be my last switch (again, ha!).
I've found that I prefer doing things over chronicling what I've done. As a result, this site suffers. But no one reads this stuff anyway, so only I care.
