"Happy New Year"
I hope everybody’s New Year started off well, and they all seem to start with some sort
of resolution; mine this year is to focus my energy and get things done. Well, the
converting of the website, and updating of the navigation bar, so it all works with
Microsoft’s I.E. and Mozilla’s Firefox has been completed. The blog had to be reworked,
along with the Video cover page, Numerology report, Sound Wav pages, and some of the
Interactive Fiction pages. Also, all the broadband videos had to be re-encoded to work
properly with Firefox. Good thing about the video conversion is, they’re all optimized for
their pages and I saved a gigabyte of storage, plus they stream faster.
Now that the conversion is behind me I’d like to crank out the second release of Across The
Stars. I’m pretty close to finishing it up, and if I could get one more gamma tester I could
bust out the site during the few days it would be in testing. So hopefully by the end of the
month this project will be done and the archive will have another game to host.
On top of all of that, I’d like to write a review for Fallout 3, and maybe a few other games
I picked up after Christmas. They all would make nice additions to the reviews page, and even
if it takes a bit, I have to make some time to do it.
All of this hasn’t left me a lot of time for reading, which really sucks. I keep saying that
once I’m done I won’t have to do it again and I can get back to some of the finer things in
life. I know that I’m right, and all of this will get done, it just can’t get done fast enough.
But, at least we seem to be getting off on the right foot.
