Recent events afforded me the free time and inclination to play with this website, and make some overdue upgrades for compatibility with PHP 7. Chief among them, a new upgrade for the long dormant Gallery Project. Some intrepid users recently released Gallery Revival, which adds PHP 7 support to Gallery. I've been very happy with Gallery over the last 15+ years I've run it here, but I am interested in modernizing the experience, either through better theming or migration to another platform. I am also contemplating a facelift for the website as it has been five years since the last redesign.

Having recently renewed my interest in home audio and video equipment, I'm again regularly visiting AVS Forum. Now in its 21st year, the Audiovisual Science Forum is the single-best resource for knowledge on home theaters, televisions, speakers, etc. Many of their members have built their own home theaters.
