As you may know, I have been working on upgrading the web server with 
PHP.  I recently installed the mysql relational database on theopenlab 
box, so now we can use PHP with mysql (joy!).  Jeff pointed out a 
cst-calendar proggy that  uses mysql with php.  i installed it on my home 
if you like it i can instal it on the openlab server for the bioinfo portal.

I had a little bit of trouble turning on the server-side includes for 
theopenlab apache server, this resulted in a 'broken' stats page and 
counter.  I personally am not too fond of the web stats generator that 
was being used (big brother):  it logs and displays visitor information 
like operationg system and stuff-- good stuff for script kiddies.  for 
your consideration i put the webalizer on there instead. Just click the 
'view the statistics' link at the bottom of theopenlab main page to check 
it out.  Big brother is still there, but if you want to view it i suggest 
to password protect it first.  

I also placed a php/sql counter on theopenlab index and loci index 
pages.  If you like them i will keep them.  I think they look fine.

Finally, I have begun working on a template for the new web page design.

point your browser to 
and tell me what you think (its still very rough).
