In case you’re wondering what happened on this site besides that it has been visually overhauled … two of my older blogs have now been merged with Hidden Resource. One, Dataleak, was my very first blog that I used for mainly writing about computer games, especially old ones. However Dataleak turned more and more into a abandoned net corpse and because there were quite some articles on it which I found have nostalgic value I decided to take them over to HDRS. Then there was Vista Tweaking, a blog I’ve started to post tweaks for Windows Vista. The few postings from that site have been consolidated into HDRS as well. I also had the idea on the back burner about starting an audio blog since audio production is one of my many interests. But a man has only so much time and maintaining three or four blogs is clearly a chore. Just think about all the updates, handling Spam etc.
As you can see hidden.resource has been moved to it’s own domain, namely www.hiddenresource.net. At that opportunity I also gave the site a WordPress update and a new look (including those slick 16-bit style pictures at the top). Besides that HDRS is going to focus more on Game Development with ActionScript 3.0 in the future as that is what I’m (and probably the readers of this blog are) most interested in.
Finally I got myself up to completely overhaul this blog and after a long time of resisting I finally decided to switch to Word Press! Nucleus was a great system but the mysterious problems recently that kept my blog from appearing on newsfeed fetching sites forced me to go the radical way. After all a blog without any visiting readers is a net corpse!
There are still a couple of things I’m missing from Nucleus but Word Press seems to already have a decent palette of plug-ins and themes and I’m in love with the built-in WYSIWYG-Editor! Publishing a new items seems to be a bit slow however!
