I've gone and made a bunch of changes to the site that I've been meaning to for a while! Other than the updates system, I've also changed the page index to include thumbnails and pagination, which hopefully makes browsing easier. Under the hood, I've made some utilities for myself that should make page and announcement posting much easier.
I will also continue to implement styling changes over the next...well, however long it takes. The site still looks super bare-bones and doesn't look as good as I want it to.
As before, this is all being coded from scratch (part of my personal enjoyment of running this site off of my web hosting is fully customising it). You may run into bugs, feel free to let me know through the Disqus thread below.
