New Website!

New Website!

Jan 30, 2007 6:44pm

Yay, yet another new website. I swear I've must of had at least 10 redesigns by now...

As the story goes back in 2005 my site was exploited due to postnuke and phpBB. At the time I was working too much so I had no time to either repair the code or make a site from scratch.

Technical Rant

Meanwhile.. for the past 2 years I've spent my time coding, rethinking, coding again, a rapid application framework dubbed "Muon." It allows me to create a database driven website in a fraction of the time and handles backend processes such as automagically generating, updating, repairing database tables, as well as forms, lists, and queries [blah blah blah]. Furthermore its designed to handle multiple clients & sites with their own needs and features.

This site is a simple example of what Muon can do. I built the site from the ground up in just a few days. It took longer entering in tags and data then programming the backend.

Yes, I know, theres Ruby on Rails and PHP Cake and Zope and [...]. All of which didn't fit the bill. Ruby on Rails is slow on performance, PHP Cake is not cake, and Zope is a mess. Furthermore I don't believe in MVC for websites, the model & controller are fine, but what happens when your running multiple client applications that require different view but the same logic & model? Do you duplicate code? (yuck) Do you add templating (MVTC anyone?!) It just doesn't make any sense to me.


So enjoy the site. I'm still adding content and tags, and be sure to get my podcast & blog rss if you never want to look at this homepage again.

I heard of your music through Darwinia, and after coming to your site and listening to your music, I was hooked.
I just really wanted to say that, keep up the good work. And the site looks great.

I found your music through Darwinia too, and I love it. It reminds me of the days I used to play the Atari STE.

Great stuff, keep it up!

"but what happens when your running multiple client applications that require different view but the same logic & model?"

you mean when you need different views for the same application? can you give an example? (if i understand correctly i don't think you'd need to duplicate code to solve this in rails).

Nice looking site!

Your music is totally great! It's even better than most of the 8bitpeoples stuff!! What about some Europe-Tour :-) Rock on!!

finally. i like it. another great way to quickly and easily put a dynamic site together is to just redirect your to your virb page. ;P
