Ship of Fools Website

Good thing I didn’t have any pressing homework for tomorrow. That let me spend most of the evening migrating content from the old Ship of Fools web site to the new one.

This wasn’t just copying files over, but a whole rewrite of everything. OK, most of the content is relatively unchanged, but now it’s all in PHP and XHTML and CSS and no frames or tables for layout whatsoever. Net result: the underlying code is a lot cleaner, and I should be able to do neat things with the pages now (like putting a random quote at the bottom, perhaps?).

Also of note: new bios for the two newest members of the performing group. And a significantly expanded games list. And a (proper?) backend for hosting images.

The new site shall be unveiled officially at the next meeting. If you’re reading this before then (hi, Wes!), consider this a sneak peek.

  1. And as a special bonus, since Amy apparently thought my bio was too “bland,” I went and spiced it up a bit. And it’s 100% true, I assure you, just like all the other bios.

  2. For posterity’s sake, I’m saving the bio I came up with for Kyle here, which has of a few minutes after I write this, will be replaced with the one she came up with.

    Kyle “Of The Jute” DeJute

    Pirate-to-English Translation

    Fighting Style
    Psychological Warfare

    Carbon-dating results inconclusive

    Blood Type


    Differential semiotics of Germanic languages

    The Ship of Fools were once misunderstood, being genetically incapable of saying things other than “Arrrrrr!” and “Avast, ye scurvy seadog!” Kyle was the first human to successfully infiltrate the group and survive, mimicing their dress and behavior until eventually being accepted as one of their own. Through years of taking extensive notes on their verbal communications, she finally completed her life’s work of deciphering their langauge. She continues her clandestine research, paying the bills by translating the Fools’ dialect into the Queen’s English.

  3. Now why would you think that IIII would read this?

  4. Informants. I have ‘em.
