Website update.

I’ve been meaning to update the look of my site for a while now and I’ve finally found a theme that is both pleasant to look at and isn’t too different from the old one. So, may I present: The new Tardis Remakes website. Tadahh! 🙂

For a while (don’t know how long though) I’ve had a problem with the site that meant not everyone could access it (not related to the change of theme). The problem is solved now and the site will no longer block visitors. I think it was a plugin I used, that banned certain IP adresses from posting, which I used to keep the worst spammers out, but unfortunately it seems it kept innocent people out too. Oops.

That means that for the past month I’ve been getting a lot more spam than I’m used to (which Akismet does catch…but still) so now I’ve changed it so you have to sign up if you want to post a comment. Annoying, yes, but perhaps I will keep some of the spammers out and that would make me a happier person.

Death to all spammers!..may you all die violent and painfully!

On a more positive note I’m happy to say that work is progressing nicely on Neon Invasion Earth. Funny how ones plans can get all out of whack all of a sudden. This was just a little fun throaway idea that was supposed to be finished in two weeks, but now it’s been 4½ months. *sigh*

…it should be finished before the end of this year though. 😉

Long needed overhaul.

Finally I’ve decided on a new theme for my site. I’ve looked at hundreds of themes and ended up with about 10 choices, but I still couldn’t commit to one because none of them really satisfied all my requirements. Among other things I wanted was something more simple and elegant than my previous site – something that also looked “less designed”. Well, the answer was right in front of me the whole time. I decided to try the theme used at Retro Remakes – just for fun really, and actually saw most of the things I wanted right there. An acknowledgment of their good choice. 🙂
A bit of tweaking later and here it is.

There is now also a subsection called “Works in progress” to get an easier overview of what I’m working on.
– Nothing there yet though.
A new section called “Other retro stuff” which will be used for retrostuff that falls outside my own games.
I’ve added an RSS feed and soon there will also be Gravatar support.
However, it’ll be a few days until I’ve completed tweaking old posts and pictures to look better under this theme.

Perhaps I can get my ass in gear soon and ramp up my programming efforts. I’m only programming about once a week and that unfortunately means I’m getting close to nowhere with my WIP’s…and I so want to get on with my projects.

See you later. 🙂
