Yet Another Blog Suite

Tired. Lots of yard work done this weekend, not much interesting to write about. I spent some time on a blogging system similar to Blogger where everything is published as static HTML. Got a template system up and running, got database structure figured out. It creates an index with the last X posts on it, and post pages for each individual post. I took a few lengthy posts with embedded HTML from this blog and inserted them into the test database, as well as *this* sites template with a few replaced special tags and vualah.

Not bad for a little bit of work. I'm wondering how well this would go with another idea I had: a public rating system for movies to supplement/replace the MPAA's ratings. Something that more accurately reflects actual values, not what the MPAA values. YourSay blog+YourSay ratings? Might be a nice jumping off point for other people-powered projects as well.

I can see the RIAA/MPAA hiring companies to 'exaggerate' whatever's new regardless of however good it really is.
