Small Update
8/02/2020
Oh boy, 2020 has been a crazy year. Anyway, I just wanted to touch base and say I'm alive and well.
 
I'm sure the big question is, what is happening to the site? Well... I don't know. I've been primarily focused on life and my career. I've been also getting back into web development over the last few years. And while I haven't worked on this site specifically I have been coding quite a bit. Just not to the same extent I used to. More about 10 to 20 hours a week. Compared to the 40-60 or so I used to (On top of my 40 hour a day job). 
 
So what projects have I been working on outside of my work? Well... for a short list:
  • Attempted a JavaScript based Game Engine in Node.JS (got pretty far!)
  • Redesigned engine to use Angular. (got a little further!)
  • Built a game guide site using Node.JS, Angular, & MongoDB (80% done but stopped, severely underestimated the amount of data entry needed). The DB is down half the time so not really worth sharing a broken site.
  • Built a resume site.
  • Built an awesome resume site.
  • Started working on an actual site! I just can't share the details yet. It's pre-pre-alpha.
So, outside of that? I moved to a new state. Have been working as a Business/Systems Analyst. Which is a fun job since I get to be involved in the entire process from concept to creation. But yea, I intended for this to be a quick post. So I'm going to end it here. 
 
Just letting you know that while I haven't been focused on the site, my skills have been improving. And... yes I am working on a prototype for what may end up replacing this site. No promises yet, but it's looking like an interesting concept! But one thing is for sure. It'll need to be a lot more streamlined. I think focusing on one good idea is the way to go.

    It is good to hear you are well. The site is a bit old now but it is still gold for sure. Looking forward to hearing the details as they become available. Best regards.
