Michael Moncur - Web Sites
I created and maintain the following Web sites.
The Quotations Page
The Web's oldest page devoted to famous quotations, established 1994. Receives over six million page views per month. Provides a searchable and browsable interface to over 20,000 quotations using a PHP front end to a MySQL database, all developed from scratch.
The Literature Page
Established February 2003. Allows viewers to read hundreds of classic books, plays, poems, essays, and other works online using a customizable user interface with a focus on readability and usability. The works are stored in a MySQL database and displayed via PHP, which also allows for a powerful search feature.
Michael Moncur's Website Workshop
The Gadgets Page
Matthew Strebe and I are publishing reviews and articles related to gadgets, ranging from cameras and TVs to computers and software, on this site. The Gadgets Page officially launched in January 2004. It uses the same back-end content management system as Website Workshop.
The author's personal weblog of news he finds interesting. This site runs a custom weblog application I wrote in PHP and MySQL. It was redesigned in August 2003 to take advantage of CSS and improve its appearance.
Matthew Strebe and I run this site. It's a parody of the popular geek news site Slashdot, with satirical news stories about computers, technology, and science. SlashNot was selected as PC Magazine's Site of the Week for November 7, 2003.
From time to time I set up other sites as experiments or side projects. The following are sites I'm currently playing with:
