Making up for not writing anything lately.
I hadn’t looked at this site in a week or two, and I came back yesterday to a PHP parse error in one of my PHP5 classes. LunarPages has an Apache handler for PHP5 files that has to go in your

So I think I’m over PHP and WordPress now. If anyone favors a particular Rails blog package, let me know. At least I can drag Rails and all my gems and plugins around with me.

In other business news, we launched Doable Designs this past week. We’re aiming to reach small business owners who have been turned off by highly-priced custom designs (like mine), but don’t want to manage their own web content (no CMSes or FrontPage). I should write a separate post on that…
IE 6 support ends in ten weeks!
Have a good weekend.
