The Old Is New
Today, I spent most of my day converting the old Royfuss blog posts into the new format. Here are the results of that labor. I also added a link to the side bar. It’s entirely hard coded with CSS, HTML, and PHP, but the PHP isn’t doing much. If I get the initiative to do it, I’m going to load up them into a database format, so I can have PHP do all the work next time that I update the look of the website. I removed several links that were dead, broken in some way, or lead to a page that had a virus.
It was interesting to go back and copy all of those posts into a new format, because I read several of those old posts; I also noticed the times. I was an insomniac at one point, updating in the wee hours of the morning. Working at Target, I generally updated right before going to work, after work, or on the weekends. During college I generally updated in the evening. From that point of view, it’s interesting.
It was also interesting to reminisce. I posted several posts on Hellgate London. In a weird way, it was fun to relive the downfall of the game and Flagship Studios. At a point, I hated the Sony and their Playstation 3, now it’s my go-to console. Oh, and I have a habit of taking a long time to design websites, and then never release them.
It all got me thinking about what I’m going to do with the website now. For now, it’ll mainly be a blog, as I mentioned. I’m sure I’ll post a lot about video games; that’ll not change. I might even bring back “Games to the Video.” That reminds me, I need to import the posts from YourPersonalGamer.com. I won’t link to it… the site is abandoned and broken. As soon as the domain expires, it’ll go away. That’s the other thing I learned; I go A.D.D. a lot. I’m trying not to, but it’s fun to ramble.
That’s all I got. I’ll post my thoughts on Darksiders 2, Assassin’s Creed 3, or Borderlands 2 in the near future. I’ll try to update at least once a week, so keep posted.
