New coldness

So last week I went out and laid down some cash for proper web hosting at HostGator. I heard about them through one of the users here on Gamedev and decided to check them out. They looked pretty spiffy and clearly much better than the hosting you get at sourceforge (you get what you pay for I suppose).

I also redid the entire site so that it would be standards compliant (at least the validator I used says so). It now renders perfectly on both IE7 and Firefox, and honestly there wasn't that much of a difference. In fact the only compatibility issue I ran into was with the float css tag, and all I had to do to get a correct result on firefox was make sure it had an accompanying clear style tag.

The site is now driven by php and mysql as well. Before.. well.. let's just say it wasn't so pretty.

I've also updated the image gallery to use Lightbox to display the images. The result is a much better looking image gallery.

And finally, against my better judgement I added proper forums. PHPBB forums to be exact. I'm going to be sorry for that I'm sure.

I plan on putting up a wiki (twiki is what I'm going to use I think) for documentation, but I'm still learning how all that works. It sounds painful.

Anyway, go to tape-worm.net and check it all out.

Just registered with your site. I hope the Anarchy bit can be less soul destroying than the GD Lounge.

Looks okay here. Seems a bit overdesigned in places, like putting ten screenshots into three different sections. The overlay screenshot-script worked fine.

Yeah, eventually there'll be more screenshots, I just got lazy.

It won't destroy your soul if you don't have one to begin with.
