I've been finishing up various projects and cultivating some new ones. Before the new ones start, I've been getting into the CodeIgniter MVC framework. It's a pretty natural fit, since I've been using ideas from the MVC world for a year and a half now. Very small footprint, good performance, and quite flexible. And it turns out that some of the things I've been doing in my CMS fill a need in CI, like building out the administrative area based on the structure of the database itself. Interesting framework, and I can see using it for a number of things that are in the pipeline.
