I don't have time to learn anything new right now, so I using Samizdat to convert webpages I maintain into blogs. Just didn't realise I've meaning to since April 2004.
I actually failed at converting the coastal cleanup page and abandoned that until later. Turned out it was some code left over at the top of the former index.html page that created the problem.
Figured it out when converting the Meetings of the Biodiversity & Ecology Journal Club, which was finished on 20th December 2004. That has significantly reduced the time Ladybug needs to maintain that page - it now takes 5 minutes unless she's fussy. Still, never more than 10 minutes.
Now I have to tackle the Asian Otter newsletter page. It has been static too long because its ungaily to update. Making it a blog and crosslinking it to the other pages oughta do the trick. There is interesting news emerging which I need to reflect.
The next few lines are really note taking on my part, for when I tackle the coastal cleanup page next:
Samizdat can be downloaded here.
journal.php - can leave alone.
index.php - change the blog title and description (line 20, 23) and indicate the number of posts that are to appear on the front page (line 28).
index.html - point this to the index.php file. It has a meta refresh command which must be updated with the correct URL of the new blog (line 8).
