Progress update

Posted on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 at 12:30 am

It’s been pretty quiet here recently, but I’ve been keeping myself very busy! I am currently in the process of coding a new theme for this place. As nice as the many WordPress themes you can download from the interwebs are you just can’t beat a home-made theme… unless of course, it sucks!

It’s June, so that means it’s E3 time where we get to learn about new hardware (maybe) and games that are in the works by studios around the world.

So it seems I have failed to keep this place up to date recently. This is because I’ve had a busy couple of weeks involving photo/videography for a pole dance show, usual work commitments, preparations for the ‘thing’ (see below) and an acute case of Overwatch addiction!
