Hi Talon, how's life? Will you then also be the code monkey that will create the new/old VGC?
Life has been OVERWHELMINGLY busy!! It was hard enough coming here and working on the site when I just had TalonMan Jr. to contend with - ever since the birth of TalonGirl (who's now 3yrs old), I've been pretty much relegated to 'go to work, come home and eat dinner, go to sleep - wash, rinse, and repeat). She's getting older though, so I've been slowly starting to reclaim parts of my life again!!! :)
Don't know that I'll be doing much coding for VGChartz - not that I wouldn't WANT to, just don't know that I have the time anymore. To be as completely honest as possible, the same way many of you all had issues with the move from the old blue/white VGChartz from a functionality standpoint, I had just as many issues on the technical side. Brett brought in a paid consultant who definitely did some very nice things - but he also re-engineered most of the coding style Brett and I had been using for years, and the learning curve was simply too great for me to commit the time to. I'm not sure if the next itteration of the site(s) will be a return to simplicity (both in function and form), or whether it will remain a technical challenge as it currently is. Regardless, I will ALWAYS be a friend to Brett - and I will always lend a hand if he asks... ...you reading this Brett?!?!?!? ;)
