Warning! Warning Will Robinson! Website update incoming!

Its been at the back of my head for a good six months that d101games.com needs a good updating.  Being a Web Professional this should be a piece of cake. However there is a trade off between putting shiny new features on t’website and getting books out.

  • An online store. So you can buy books/pdfs from me directly. This one is a no brainer, but how far this is all integrated with the rest of the site. In fact there is a case for the Online store to become the site.
  • Continued support of the blogs. Personally I love blogging and some of the D101 authors have started to use their blogs too. I want to update/enhance this for the next iteration of the site. – UPDATE 22/11/2012 – Done.
  • D101games.com.  I’ve already got this domain, type it in and you’ll get the homepage of the site, but I want it so it maps to all pages of the site. While I’m particularly fond of the .co.uk domain name due to pride in my country, the .com domain name makes a huge difference in a business sense.- UPDATE 22/11/2012 – Done, with appropriate redirects for .co.uk so fingers xed no broken links.
  • A shiny new theme for the website/blogs/sub domains. Some of the site is looking a bit tired and I’ve now got quite a large gallery of images that I can use around the site to perk it up a bit.
  • Discussion/support forums. I know I closed down the previous forums saying I didn’t have a , but I think there’s a case of having at least a ‘Support’ forum for the rules and release date questions I get from time to time.
  • Clean up of navigation. Direct links to main titles, titles I’m working on etc.

Any suggestions, please leave a comment below.


Coming back to life

Hit the wall big time at the end of March. The big move back to D101 HQ from our rented accommodation, was as nasty as me and my wife had predicted it would be. Lots and lots of boxing up, shifting boxes up and down stairs, cleaning, then some more cleaning, dealing with unfinished bits and glitches in the house, adding to which  my Dad died after a brief but ugly battle with Lung Cancer.

Conpulsion at Edinburgh University Teviot House over the Easter weekend really lifted my spirits. I’ll make a fuller report of this awesome weekend later, but it really invigorated me and put my head in a bright and happy space.

With things sorting themselves out at home and my dad’s funeral next week, I’m finally coming back to life as a person and as
