State of the something-or-other

So as I’m adding older posts back in and trying to create new content (*laugh*), I’ve realized that the category/tag system is defeating me. Right now I have a mix of each kind depending on when I created an entry. I’m thinking more that I should use broader categories (Art, Design, Gaming) and then use […]

End of year babblings – 2011 version

Once again, I’ve decided that changing the purpose of my website here is the thing to do, so that’s what I’ve done. I ended up not liking the whole portfolio on the main URL and blog updates on a sub-domain URL. I ended up not updating either site then and that bothered me as well. […]

Added a new portfolio piece

I added the screenshots and information about the vBulletin 4.x forum skin customization I did for Matt James over at Loremaster.org. I think the skin turned out great and it was just what he wanted. I’m glad I’ve gotten into the habit of taking full page screen grabs after completing a project so I can […]
