I discuss the process of overhauling a badly out-of-date website to make it conform to accessibility standards and give it a responsive design. I also discuss how I came up with my own content management system by Bash scripting.

Good show. Thank you.

I don't have any websites, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you reason out your problem, your solution and the method you used to get there. I really like listening to your episodes. Thanks.

Wayback machine

Hi Jon,

Very impressive show. You said you wished you had a before and after for your site.

I looked on the Wayback Machine and there are old versions of the School of Music's site going back in time, though whether they are what you are looking for I don't know.

Have a look at for example.

Thanks Dave!

Wow Dave, thanks for the tip. Wayback indeed had the previous version of our site. Kinda scary. I just want it to go away haha!
