  • 27/06/2009 Sites or a poor man’s database (ok, really, MS Access) Colin Charles byte@bytebot.net http://bytebot.net/blog/ Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Hosted sites • Geocities? • Tripod? • AngelFire? • Google Sites Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Benefits • Can put it on your (sub)domain • site.bytebot.net • Can have it as part of Google Apps for Your Domain • You get a whole lot more space (100MB/ site vs 10GB/domain) Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • An embarrassment from 1996 from web.archive.org Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Not much has changed in 2009 Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Why do I bother? • I blog a lot more these days, rather than update static HTML pages • vim foo.html; rsync -e ssh -vzra foo.html bytebot.net:~/public_html/ • Pages on the other hand are great for “resource building” Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • So, what’s Google Sites? • Multimedia, calendars, presentations, text, all in one place • Easy to use editor (like office software) • Control permissions for viewing/editing • Gadgets • I want to play with this more Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • But what really rocks? • Templates! Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • OK, its not just that • Analytics integration • AdSense integration Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Lists Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Lists • Type: • Checkbox, Date, Dropdown, Text, URL Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Voila! Poor man’s MS Access Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Embedding gadgets Literally a pull-down menu away Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Problems? • AdSense, you can’t track based on a channel • Option to tag, in terms of type (making for easier organisation) • Imagine a field where it was freeform “text”, but comma separation garnered them as tags Saturday, 27 June 2009
  • Your experiences? Thanks! Colin Charles byte@bytebot.net http://bytebot.net/blog/ Saturday, 27 June 2009
