Hi! Welcome to the new mauter.com. Brian finally caved and switched to WordPress instead of his custom-written Java code. The old code served us well, but it’s time to move on. We hope to load all of our old pictures and news items into this site. Stay tuned!
We haven’t been home much lately, so we should have a lot of pictures for you to look at. Currently, we are adding pictures from our trip to Vegas and will be adding pictures from the Betbeze beach trip soon. Take a look throughout the site for your Mauter fix.
The search engine I was evaluating worked for a while. I noticed that when I tried to reindex the website, the index was broken. Although it was probably a pilot error, I removed it from the website. I’m working on a new project at home to build my own search engine with the help of some sweet projects at Apache Jakarta: Lucene, HttpClient and CyberNeko HTML Parser. For all of you programmers who balk at Java, I have one thing to say to you: you’re missing out.
Well, I added a search engine to the website. I don’t know how much use it will get on mauter.com, but I’ve been thinking about putting a new search engine on the website I have at work. This is sort of an evaluation. But hey, it’s free! I’m using the excellent Java Search Engine. It’s really fast and pretty darn accurate. Let me know if you like it.
It seems we’re posting these news blurbs monthly. Weird. We’re not trying, I promise. Anyway, we have a slightly new look to the site with hopefully an easier way to access the main pages. Also because we’re already using Java Servlet Filters, we added a compression filter that will hopefully send pages to you faster. (Think of how zipping a file before you send it to a friend is faster because it’s smaller. This is the same principle.)
