Under Permanent Construction 

If all goes well, you shouldn't notice anything (maybe things will be marginally faster), but I've been doing some behind the scenes work to a) learn a bit more about some technologies, b) make my site use a bit less memory (so I can do other cool stuff, and c) make the site hopefully a bit more stable and speedy.

Mostly so I can remember what I did later, here's sort of an inventory of some of the technologies I messed around with:

I'm in the process of building out a new site for 2013, mostly because I'm bored with the current one, but also because it's good for me to actually try to do some modernish stuff so my skills don't atrophy (especially if I'm only doing certain types of stuff at work). So, yeah, if you find stuff broken, let me know.
