The Main Web Site

There are two main pieces to the web site as it is now (2005).

  • The static content is generated by scripts in a language I arrived at ("designed" is too dignified) specifically for the purpose of maintaining this site. It runs on MS Access 97. More about this later...
  • The dynamic content, i.e. the shopping cart and the search engine, is all written in Perl using .dbm files for data storage. It is long overdue for a massive overhaul, but it's pretty reliable even so. More about this, also, later.
    • The shopping cart and checkout use CGI-LIB
  • ...three. There are now three parts, if you count this wiki.
