Project Triage —

When is a project worth saving? My thoughts on rewriting, expending time and energy building or rebuilding a project. I struggle with this question a lot. I chronically take on more projects than I can handle, and then a few (or a lot) of them drop off my radar and get abandoned.

What’s up with the Hiatus? —

So, about that hiatus… Since August of 2015, I’ve been hiatus while dealing with some medical issues and an increased job workload.

Splitting Minechem —

A long time ago, Pixlepix made and/or aquired a couple of mods. One he called Minechem, the other he called Particle Physics. He decided to merge them, for giggles and kicks. As of Minechem 5.0.5-Dev5 (and later), I’ve split them back into their individual mods. Minechem is now just Minechem. Particle Physics is now just […]
