Based on this, I decided that I’d do my small part to encourage people who wish to remain with IE to upgrade to IE8 by applying those techniques consistently across my site, starting this morning with the main page. Other pages will follow over the next few days.
Meanwhile, I suspect that Rails may be coming to cornerhost soon... Michal’s post also highlights an interesting trend... once upon a time the standard was LAMP: namely Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. MySQL is being eaten from below by SQLite3, and the time may be ripe for getting eaten from above. Over time PHP became “PHP, Perl, Python, and sometimes Ruby”. But the more interesting trend is that the language choice itself is no longer as primary as it once was, the real choices are increasingly drupal, django, and rails, with the language being a consequence of that choice.
