Tom Smith pointed this out to me - and it probably now holds my record for the shortest time between me seeing something for the first time and buying it.
It lets you catalogue your books, dvds, games, etc, and best of all if you scan (or type in) the ISBN number, it looks the details up for you on Amazon. Better yet, if you’ve got an iSight you can use it to read the barcodes. How cool is that?
I haven’t even got an iSight yet, but I suspect I may have one soon…
I’ve switched things over that my new Drupal based site is live. For the time being you can find the old site at http://old.elegantchaos.com.
There are still quite a few things that I haven’t moved across - some because I haven’t got round to it, others because they are no longer relevant.
Completely coincidentally, Caroline & I also have to move house, which is a bit of a pain as I was planning on taking a couple of months off and so don’t actually know where I’ll be working next (hence where I need to move to!).
As a result of this move, I’m having a big clear-out of stuff. Have a look - you may well want something that I’m chucking out!
Well my experiment with iBlog ended, and I’ve decided to switch to a different approach.
I am now using Drupal to manage my whole site - including the blogging. It’s early days yet, but so far I like it.
As a result, expect more disruption to this site in the short term!
As of the end of October, I am no longer working for Sports Interactive!
The parting was entirely amicable (I actually resigned in May, but continued to work at SI until the release of FM was out of the way), and I still have a great deal of time for everyone at SI, and wish them well for the future!
I don’t feel that it would be professional to go into details in public about my reasons for leaving, so all I’ll say is that I disagreed with some of the decisions being made, particularly about the technical side of things, and felt that my views and experience weren’t really being valued.
It’s a shame, because I love the game, and the company is generally a great place to work.
