Well, it's been practically forever since I wrote in my journal. The content management system has come a long way, reached version 1.0, followed by a bugfix release 1.0.1, and then promptly screeched to a halt. The database server is gone, it's all filesystem based, and though the database will come back sometime in the future, any file modifications are made on every request. And the way I update XML files needs to become more generic.
Anyway, back to work.
