This journal is moribund
As much as I like GameDev.net, I find the journal system here to be underpowered - no tags, no categories, posts disappear from the front page if they're too old, poor support for inline formatting, etc. This has made me hesitate to spend time putting entries here, and the last one was eight months ago.
So in future, I will be posting on my own blog at http://www.ebonyfortress.com/blog/. It's using Wordpress, which is your typical example of crap-code-good-functionality, but it's functionality that counts here. Hopefully I'll see some of you over there, as well as through my continued presence on the forums here of course.
