So upon reading my feeds this morning, I’ve come across about 100 different articles about the Playstation Move (this is out of maybe 120 since I checked Google Reader last night). Now, I know that this is something revolutionary (I don’t even know if I’m being sarcastic here), but can we tone down the amount of news that we’re posting about things? And yes, I realize the irony that this post is going to show up in a feed somewhere…. Google News tells me that in the last hour, just under 3000 items have been posted regarding this product, and that’s only for sites that have been indexed!
I enjoy a new announcement as much as the next person, but for something that we’ve had prototype images and tons of hints about (and in contrast with the rest of the world, is relatively unimportant), do we really need to stop the presses? Space your announcements out during the course of this week, perhaps. I seriously doubt people are glued to their computers waiting for more news about this thing.
After a brief database corruption, I have managed to reinstall WordPress on this site. I have to say for one, that I’m very impressed with the quality of the Admin Panel in this version of WP. The last version that I installed (yes, laugh if you must at both my laziness and any website insecurity) was way back in June 2007, and it looks like the platform has come a long way since then.
For those of you who actually used my site for information, have no fear, as I will be recovering the lost articles and posting them again (apparently PHP Form input is a difficult task). Additionally, I have to rework my Google Analytics settings. To be honest, I’m not going to put any Google Adsense ads on the site. The traffic that this site generates is not sufficient to keep the (not-so) trendy ads on the site.
I’d like to bring back some interesting sections that I originally planned, but I couldn’t keep updated. One of my favorites was OCRemix Mondays, and since there’s such a large selection of tunes over at Overclocked ReMix, I should have enough content to last me for a while.
Another planned section is the weekly web links. I will be trying to compile a list of interesting links every week and putting them out on Fridays. This will include the various web comics, Cracked.com articles and other fun reading that I run across during my daily RSS feed reading.
Finally, I’m planning to post actual useful content once in a while. Things from tutorials to tips and tricks to whatever else I can think of. We’ll see what happens here, but I have a few DIY projects coming up, and I’m going to try to keep track of them so that I can share my accomplishments (or hilarious failures) with the world.
First I have to find a non-crappy WordPress theme….
