I have been using WordPress recently to drive parts of the website and also to record new exhibits and so on. However, this has the drawback that every time the home page was called it would also call WordPress. Although this is common practice there is really no need for the simple text entries involved. I have now written scripts and modified the database to handle this without needing WordPress.
The content in here remains valid for now but will be removed once I am sure it has all been copied across correctly. After that, I will probably keep this here as a general blog, which is, after all what WordPress is good at.
