Welcome to Doerrstop 9.0

Welcome to the latest revision of Doerrstop.com. This remake have been a month in the making and utilizes some really cool database technology to allow me to do some real cool things with the site.

The Reason
So why did I do this? Three reasons. First, I thought the site needed a cleaner and simpler interface that would allow quicker access to the photos, movies, and music. The site design was getting old and needed someting a bit more visually interesting. And finally, I wanted to use some technology that would let me and the kids edit the site from anywhere we wanted rather than being tied to the machine where I had the blogging software and site content installed. This redesign addressed all of those needs and more.

The Technology
I’m utilizing the same databse driven web technology that I’ve used on 3 recent web projects (www.thelaughterclub.org, www.ncyte.org and www.christmethodist.org) to bring a nice design and added functionality to the site.

This software is free and opensource and has a large community of developers. That helps me out when I find a problem and I need an answer. It also assists me when I want to add new features to the site as many of my ideas have already been implemented and I can use and build on what is already available. You will see some of those new features coming out soon so stay tuned.
