Upgrades in progress

Upgrades in progress

The first of several planned updates of this site has taken place today. I am in the process of upgrading the search engine for the site to a new PHP script, which replaces the old Perl script. I believe this new version, while still a work in progress, has more to offer already than the old engine.

I am also working on getting a standard look and feel to the site across various platforms, e.g IE 6 on Windows 2000/XP, Mozilla Firefox on Windows and Linux etc. This will take time, but already the site is very good on these browsers considering how complex the code is with the scalable interface. Will keep you posted on further updates!
