Pointless task of the day, accomplished

Added plot data to my comic book collection website.

The database software I use includes plots (looks like the Diamond description mostly) for most newer comics. So, I added a field and some goo to render it on the website. Also, gave me a chance to rework the import workflow. Previously, I would have to import the data locally and then dump the whole database to a file and then ftp that file up to the website and import it into hosted database (mainly because of space constraints on my cheap hosting). Now, I just drop all the data files up into Amazon’s S3 service and then import the files from there.

Completely excessive, but amusing.
