wonko.com gets a facelift (and liposuction)

Finally, after years of writing and rewriting code and then throwing it away because it wasn’t good enough, I’ve somehow managed to trick myself into forgetting to throw away my latest work. As a result, wonko.com has received a much-needed facelift and a complete rewrite behind the scenes.

This isn’t Poseidon 1.0 (and no, I haven’t started working on Poseidon again); it’s a completely new and altogether simpler beast based on the same PHP/XML/XSLT concept. At the moment, it’s slightly less functional than the old wonko.com, but a lot prettier and vastly more elegant. For the moment I’m calling it Pants. I don’t plan to release it publicly, because if I do that I’ll stop working on it because I’ll feel obligated, and I don’t want to stop working on it. So there.

Anyway, it’s not quite finished yet, but the only way to keep myself working on it is to start using it. If you run into any problems with the new stuff, please let me know.

Oh, and the first person to tell me the site looks bad in Internet Explorer will win a kick in the head. On your mark, get set, go.
