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 … Continue reading

Welcome to the New

Royfuss Old Logo

I’ve been working on this for a few months now. First off, on the old website, I noted that I was working on a new site. I also noted that I might do a redesign of Royfuss… well this is the redesign. The site I was working on and never let anyone know about didn’t work out. I didn’t secure it and it got hacked. As a result, the site got butchered. I have since abandoned the site. This site is secured up the wazzoo, and I’ll make sure it stays that way. The old site is still available. I … Continue reading

Double Fine Zone

I decided not do do the last section of my Games of 2011 articles. Been fairly busy. I was just sitting here waiting for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception to come via UPS, and I decided to do an update. Double Fine Productions has been on my mind. Trenched was suppose to receive an update that would add a Horde type mode to the game, as well as change the name to Iron Brigade. Psychonauts got a huge update via Steam. Achievements, graphical tweaks, and other tweaks were added to the game (fantastic for a six year old game). Costume Quest … Continue reading

Games of 2011: Games Released in the First Half

This is part two of three of the Games of 2011 series I am doing. In Games Released in the First Half I will talk about games that I followed that have been released in the first half of 2011. Most of the games I passed over for one reason or another. Some of the games I already talked about in What I Played. I loved Little Big Planet, and so I kept my eye on Little Big Planet 2. Little Big Planet 2 improves on everything from the original. Why didn’t I buy it? Well, I was working on … Continue reading

Games of 2011: What I’ve Played

Games of 2011 will be a three part series. We’ll start out with this one, which will be just games that I played throughout the first half of 2011. The next part will cover games that came out in the first half of 2011 that interest me. The last part will cover games that will come out the second half of 2011 that interest me. These are sort of in the order that I played them, but they are structured more of a logical order because I forgot when I played them, and some of them I was playing while … Continue reading

PSN Breach – An IT Perspective

The Playstation Network security breach was bad… really bad. Usernames, passwords, emails, and address were taken, and Credit Card numbers may have been taken (I’ve seen people post comments that they have noticed illegitimate charges to their credit cards so this is true, at least for some people). The Playstation Network has been down for three weeks, with services starting to be restored. Sony is offering lots of things to their customers, including: Free credit monitoring, free games, free trials to paid programs, and a few more things. I could give you all the information regarding this, but there’s enough … Continue reading

Sleepless Slumber

It’s all poetic and stuff. And yet so very true. So I haven’t updated in a long, long time (that’s the slumber part), because I have been very, very busy (that’s the sleepless part). I had an intense semester, so that’s my excuse. I literally submitted my last assignment just now. I’m going to be updating more often this summer. To prove it, I’m going to be posting a three part series within the next couple of weeks. I don’t know what I’m going to name the series, but it’ll be witty and clever… terrible and stupid. Anyways, here’s what … Continue reading
