Welcome Back And Happy New Year
(December 30, 2010)
Hey everyone! Well, I'm back. And hopefully this time I'll be able to keep a certain douchebag from Iran out of my site for a while. This web site has been completely overhauled, and while it's overdue for a redesign I didn't have time to tackle that just yet. But here's a rundown of what I did do:
- All high quality MP3s are now 320k. Just like The FuMP, when you purchase an MP3 from this site now it will be near CD quality. Spice Rack subscribers can use your 3 credits per month to download high quality MP3s directly from the Store page.
- More free downloads. I'm Not Your Personal IT Guy and Platform Wars have been added to the Featured Songs section of the Music page. So you can listen to those songs and download them for free whenever you want to.
- NSFW shirts marked down to $10. I have exactly 4 shirts left. Let's get rid of them.
- Security overhaul. I read up on SQL injections (which is how I think Douchy McBonerface was getting into my site), added code to protect against that, doubly secured my Admin section on the site, and took some other steps to try to protect my web site. I can't make my site unhackable, but I'm hoping to make it enough of a pain in the ass to hack that this guy will leave me alone.
- General content update. There was still a lot of old content on this site, a few leftover references to Sudden Death, and I was still pushing Manic Mondays instead of The Insider. That has all been taken care of. Plus I made separate pages for The Insider, Manic Mondays, and The FuMPCast.
- Simplified the site. The site was overly busy and confusing, so I stripped out a lot of extraneous content and greatly simplified things. The store is now powered by the same database that runs the FuMP store so everything is in sync there.
At some point I will get around to redesigning the site, but right now I have an album to finish. In the mean time this should serve me well.
