New website and new blog.

As you can guess from my earlier post, my old website was taken down rather mysteriously and I am not too happy about it. But there is nothing much I can do except mull over my loss. Anyways, things have to move on and so, this will be my new site from now on. There is one more change I have made, I am now blogging on wordpress instead of b2evolution. The switch is intentional, and I am already pretty happy about it. Most of my dev articles are still on the b2evolution database, which I plan to slowly by surely move to wordpress.

As far as the main site goes, it will be the cms site. There is no change to that. The site is not 100% up as yet. Some sections like the screen-shots are being worked on as I write this. But I don’t see any major problems over there. I am pretty happy with Joomla cms, so nothing changes on that front. I will continue a similar method of posting updates regarding game development (for those who have no clue, I am currently developing a 3D cartoon game called Doofus3D, and I blog all development) here as well as on the main page. I hope to finish migration of the site by tomorrow evening, since I am a little caught up in last week’s beta release.

Unlike the previous site however, I wont be having too many categories. I want to keep the ruckus to a minimum. Things like road-maps and progress will now on be under “Development” category. Anything specific about the O2 engine will come under “O2 Engine”. The one thing I miss however is the ability to categorize links. But I think I can always use my main site for that purpose. Joomla provides a much better links module and that should be the logical place where the links should be.

I just hope this site stays up longer than the previous. Keeping my fingers crossed.
