Techie stuff ahead so if you're bored by this type of thing, you can skip. I was looking at the site the other day and thinking about a few things I want to fix. One of them is the comment system. I've before put on Disqus and have tried LiveFyre as opposed to our own comments saved on the site but didn't find it very satisfactory. Since that was last year, going to take a second look at putting on an external commenting system, so the comments may look funny for awhile. I used to have a video widget on here to watch the playlist of video clips I created on Youtube, think I will bring it back, just deciding on where I'd like to put it. I definitely think we need an ABOUT page since a few people who apparently don't understand the internet very well are confused about who is posting what here, despite the fact that our pics and screen names are on the posts. (UPDATE: heres's that link plus it's on the front page menu). There are also some parts of the website that are pretty old and need to be updated. For example, I haven't been doing crime logs for some years, might start doing them again but for now, need to remove that. Also Twitter has changed quite a bit since I first put up some widgets for it, need to fix, as well as update menus and the piazza page. I also noticed that for some reason for people using Firefox , the page wasn't loading properly. I've been using Google Chrome for the longest time, so didn't notice until today. Anyway, if you see anything weird for the next week, that's why.
Update: Temporarily tried out Disqus again but I don't like it much. Putting back the original comment system which I may beef up.
