Date Archive Updates

Spent a while this morning with small updates on the blog. What better way to ring in the new year than watching soccer and coding?

Started with a properly implemented footer across the site, but that led to me finally delving in and updating the archive page.

The archive page was growing unwieldy with just a giant unordered list of every day that had an entry in the blog. With hundreds of days with entries, it was unsightly and useless except as a resource for bots to crawl the site, which is not a good reason to have it.

So I did a complete rebuild on it and changed it to be a Year -> Month -> Date list. Still only sort of useful, but still interesting and better to look at. First off, it puts the archive posts into better perspective. I've got posts from over 20 years ago here on the site thanks to the posts I migrated over for archiving.

It was also a prime example of iterative programming as I kept having to rebuild the site with every tweak to check functionality and presentation, etc.
