I finally broke down and decided to make good use of the one MySQL database my Web host provides and learn PHP. I decided that I can’t call myself a Web geek without knowing one of the most popular Web programming languages. This little project captured my attention for a good part of the week.
The result is a Web site that is 500 times easier to update and maintain, and for you, dear Internets, there are new RSS feeds to subscribe to. As soon as I realized how useful RSS is for reading my favorite blogs, I realized it would be doubly useful for my own Web site!
A lot of credit goes to the S.O., the resident PHP guru, for patiently answering my questions and, at points, just coding the darned thing for me. I still can’t quite get my head around nested “for” loops, but I’m working on it.
Now I just need to get working on some new stuff to fill it up!
