As you can see, parts of the site are driven by PHP. I thought it'd be cool to share
the code for those interested in what's going on or for anyone who wants to try similar
things on their website. It's sloppy code a lot of times, and I can't promise I commented

useful to someone.
I've left out the include files (I'm talking about PHP's

site design anyway. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Users can edit their contact information. A help page gives more detail on how the site
