Massive overhaul of website generation, which, of course, you see little sign of, since half the point of all the effort is to give you... exactly what you had before. I have been trying to split my huge clunky web-generation system into separate parts that might be suitable for use by other people. Watch this space.
Finally added the Also Like page, which gives suggestions of books and shows that fans of a few certain shows might also like. It has been sitting around on my hard drive with a few things in it, and I figured I'd just better go with what was there, and improve it as I went.
I have also been doing a massive overhaul of the report-generation scripts (used for Net-fic reviews Fanzine reviews and WorkStorm archive. Most especially I have changed the way that the WorkStorm pages are generated; (and re-arranged where some of the pages are put) I used to do customized pages for each author, but now I generate everything uniformly in one go; this should make it easier to maintain, and I don't think you the reader lose much, since I added automatic table-of-contents to the larger pages.

Replaced the old scripts used to generate the references in the Fannish Definitions Sapphire and Steel Digging Up The Stargate pages with some new XML/XSLT data + scripts. I'd forgotten these old scripts were depending on really old modules until I tried to install the site on my laptop.
