Hello world!



Wow – how long has it been since I updated my website? I have been very busy with other things, have got a job at Miniclip, done a lot of freelance work, and generally been very busy.

For those that care the site was built using web standards techniques (XHTML & CSS) although I’m not a standards zealot. I haven’t bothered checking the site validates and doubt I will (at least not until everything is working as I want). The site is runnings on the very cool WordPress blogging system which I would recommend to anyone.

Binary Moon has now been turned into a blog so that things can, hopefully, be updated more frequently. I don’t know how often, or even if, I will post but if I don’t then at least I have a better way to update things. The site will be changing slowly over the coming months as I tweak the design to be exactly as I wish. I’m going to be porting across most of the old content over the next few days so things should update fairly rapidly.

I intend to post about web design, and game development since they are the two things I do most - especially now I work at Miniclip. I will be slowly porting the old site over to the new format, although having a blog changes things around. If you want to play the games that used to be here then you should stick to Binary Sun where you can get a number of games that I sell (free versions are plentiful).

I suspect the first few posts on the site will be about how the site was built. I like reading about how others work so assume there may be someone out there who likes the same sort of thing.

Was it good/ useful/ a load of old rubbish? Let me know on Mastodon, or BlueSky (or Twitter X if you must).
