Hair removal and Ruby Searches

I cut off all my hair again today… A little while back I picked up a trimmer so I don't have to spend forever doing it with a razor. It's not right down to skin, but most of the time I just go with this anyway.


Going…

Going…

Gone!

It's been a pretty lazy Sunday on the whole… Nefarious and I got up, painted a bit, made some pasta leftovers, and then went out to Home Depot (the guts of her toilet tank broke, among other things), then to Staples (got a water cooler), and to the grocery store.

This afternoon I coverted the core BME databases (for the images) to SQL commands, so now Jon has a big SQL file with about three quarters of a million pictures… He's playing with ideas to rebuild the search engine (and maybe the core interface) using Ruby and AJAX tricks.

What do you want it to do?

I'm thinking about a search box that suggests terms for you, and perhaps even builds galleries on the fly; you can search inside sections and subsections, filter by artist, submittor, locations, and more… If you've got a dream interface to BME, let Jon know!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
