For those who stumble across this blog, you might wonder why I haven’t updated this blog for over a year. Truth be told I’ve been busy working on a few projects for Mode7 Games such as Frozen Endzone, which took up a considerable amount of time.
Apart from the problem of not being able to find time to update, I also had a problem of not being to update at all. A while ago I migrated the entire site to Jekyll, a static site generator. This worked fine for a while, but I quickly grew tired of the long delay when regenerating the site when typing up new posts.
I also felt a bit of disconnect needing to type up each post in a text editor and having to guess how the post formatting would turn out. In short it felt like a big chore to post anything. And for me the ability to post things quickly and get instant feedback is a much needed attribute of a blogging system. Thus I have now migrated back to WordPress.
I have a few projects I would like to release before the end of the year, so expect me to write about them here. I’m also going to write about what actually happened this year, including what went wrong during the rather disastrous deployment of the Frozen Synapse server rewrite.
