y-intercept themes

I have not been happy with this blog. A blog provides a fun format for ranting, but it does not provide a decent format for examining issues in depth. So, I want to get back to my y-intercept project which I hope will be able to provide a more deliberative mechanism for researching issues.

The project keeps getting delayed by silly things. For example, I started the design in PHP with the assumption that register globals would be on and magic quotes off. I have yet to come up with an elegant way to handle register globals off and the various settings for Magic Quotes.

Quite frankly, I am ready to give up on PHP. I am researching web sites that host JREs.

Anyway, having forgotten the design I had in mind, I decided that I will just start hacking away at the site with the hope that a design will materialize in my head at some point in the future.

I just added a section on y-intercept called themes. The themes will start as essays. I hope to morph the theme section into something where it is a collection of nodes of thoughts. The goal of the themes file is to define a concept, then to show how that concept manifests itself in my various other writings.
