June 1, 2009 – the last of the “magazine style” menus
Shortly after this update was the month from hell – i.e. the sustained downtime/outage/hack that led me to abandon Globat and move the site to Dreamhost – and then the site returned in July, switching from weekly graphical menu updates to daily text-plus-a-thumbnail updates. Somewhat astoundingly, that daily update frequency was kept up through September, though many of those daily updates were “on this day in…” reruns of existing content… which gave me the idea for changing the main menu over to the history timeline and giving up on any kind of predetermined routine update frequency.
The graphical menus were a lot of fun, but they’re also products of a time when I had more free time on my hands.
