So there I was, on my own with plans to get out on the bike somewhat thwarted by heavy rain showers, and very much at a loose end. So I took it upon myself to tidy up this website.
I’ve checked over the menu links, which now all seem to be properly functional. I deleted some that were merely hangovers from a prior incarnation. A few new menu items were added.
In the Main Menu:
- Recently Played Music – now links to a page with information from my Last.FM page, in turn derived from audioscrobbling from my Squeezebox (so it doesn’t include CDs and LPs that I play, not anything I listen to on the iPod
- Books from my Library – links to a widget from LibraryThing that scans through my library 25 books at a time, randomly selected. This replaces a sidebar module that used to show books currently being read, but which was usually out of date.
- About flies&bikes – explains abit about the websites I maintain.
In the Research menu:
- Recent Publications – properly integrates a feed from an institutional publication repository.
- Why Study fruit flies? – link now works!
In the Cycling Menu:
- Links tidied up to point to a new browser window/tab.
- Added link to the Team Grumpy website.
This may all seem rather insignificant, but it’s not only a job that I’ve been putting off, but some of the pages were quite a fiddle to set up. In particular embedding the last.fm and LibraryThing widgets required Jumi modules to be embedded in Joomla! articles.
