What a shambles!

I’m presently juggling all the StepMania stuff: trying to document it and get all the files online and test that it works. At the same time, I’m tweaking the site layout. Consequently, the site is in a state of partial disarray. Expect various bits of ugliness and breakage until further notice. Of course, I haven’t really advertised this site anywhere yet, so my warning and apology is addressed to nobody in particular. Hello if you happen to be passing through: please come back later when the paint has had a chance to dry.

StepMania Stuff Starts

In the interests of getting this show on the road, I’m putting up resources relating to StepMania, and dance games in general. In particular, there’s a whopping great download available on the new “Songs for Dance Games” page. More stuff will be added in the near future.

Not another blog, for Pete's sake!

Yes, well, the world may not need yet another blog, but I do. There are certain things I want to place on the web that don’t fit in at Nutters.org, my original site. Nutters.org is primarily for conceptual or thought-experiment stuff, and (believe it or not) I do actual practical things from time to time.

It’s currently my intention to use this blog as an index or signboard to other things rather than make it the main source of content. For example, if I document a successful technology experiment, I’ll do a big write-up about it somewhere, then post a summary and a link here in the blog, rather than do the whole write-up as a blog entry. More generally, I’ll post things in the blog that I don’t expect to be of any particular long-term significance, but which are news at the time. Durable information will be posted elsewhere.

Well, that’s more than enough rambling about the blog itself. Let’s see what happens next.
