Busy busy bees

It's been quite halariously busy lately between school and family matters. Becoming a news editor on GameDev has also added a daily task that takes up even more time on my schedule. I always wanted to help out GameDev as much as I can, and I think I'm doing the right thing. It's been great to work with Kevin, Leigh, Yuri, Tiffany and everyone else on the GameDev and I'm really looking forward to see how things go.

ScreenCap 2.0

Programmer16 helped out a lot with small donation regarding ScreenCap, so I decided to resurrect the project and upgrade it to .NET 2.0. I've completely redesigned it starting from scratch and working my way upwards and so far it's looking quite nice. Expect the new ScreenCap 2.0 release quite soon.

Website Remod?

Although e107 is a good content management system (robloach.net), there are many small issues with it. Namingly a few comment system problems and a horrible content system plugin. After talking with Leigh about WordPress, I decided to try it out (robloach.net/beta). WordPress is a pretty fantastic system for a blog, but is somewhat lacking when it comes to content management.

After that, Drupal was next on the list (www2.robloach.net). I'm really torn between both of the systems as they both have their own pros and cons. I'll have to work on both a bit more and see how things go. Which one do you recommend?

I liked the one that used Drupal, I felt it was easier to navigate than WP, then again it depends on whether you plan to customize WP futher... they all seem so similar to be honest.

I like WP, I tried it for my site, and although I didnt end up using it for Sphere Games, I did create a personal blog site that uses it, and I'm really happy with how it turned out (www.lsempe.com)

The WordPress site didn't seem to display right for me (all of the links at the top were aligned to the right, and on different lines.)

As a side note, I'm not sure if you noticed in my dev. journal, but I tried the beta for ScreenCap and it worked fine, plus the both me, my mom, and my "team" loved the new features.
