I’m putting this site on pause until my new, non-freezing computer is finished. You may have read my whining about system lock-ups, freezes and so-such before but they really do kill a lot of my time and momentum when I either wait for the freeze to end or just reboot my system and open up all the multiple programs and folders again. I also planned to start putting videos together but it’s hard to do that when a random freeze can hit you while recording. A good friend has helped out with most of the parts for this system and I just got the DVD/CD burner from Newegg today. The wait shouldn’t be that long. I also need time to work on a comic but I’ll still be working a bit on ScrollBoss, too.

I’m fine-tuning that article I’ve been threatening to add to the Minus World for a few weeks now and it may be ready for the next update. If you know where to look, you’ve already seen artwork for it. I’m also working on new game section-based graphic boxes. Thanks to the freezes I mentioned earlier, many weren’t finished in time for the big update and I accidentally forgot to replace the placeholders on pages like the Capcom section. I fixed that yesterday. Here’s a few of those along with some I’ll be using for future sections and such:

I’ll try to have some cool stuff ready before the next update which will probably be in September. I may even give the month a theme which will be a secret until then.

Another addition was an widget at the bottom of the main menu’s side menu. Game purchases made by clicking through the links over there give me a referral fee that’d help offset the costs of running this place, mainly the paid site account. If you can’t find those collections locally and plan to buy them through Amazon, buying it through those widget links would help me and the site out a lil’ bit. No pressure but be sure to check your local game stores first, especially any independent spots in your area. They need the most help these days.

See you in September!

edit: My computer froze up about 6 minutes after posting this and I had to reboot.
