Red Has Taken the Helm

Post by bob » 07/27/10, 10:18 pm

Cuttheredwire has taken over the Daily Update for a while, and looks like he's going to do a great job. Be sure to give him and his site, skinnables.org plenty of credit every chance you get. Also any help or tips.

He definitely has my appreciation...

I'll be under Bob's watchful eye, so things should stay true to spirit. I'm open to any suggestions from others for apps. Right now I'm doing a series on ABA Games, which has already started. I hope a few people find some stuff they like.

Back when I was playing games on Windows I played the following two games (other than Trackmania NF). They were both free to play but were also quite good:

Perfect World (International)

Gunz The Duel

Oh how could I forget! Quake Live! It's where I spend the majority of my PC gaming life now as it's available for Linux, Mac and Windows. It's basically an improved version of Quake III Arena, which is free and played through a browser. Very fun.... in fact I've got the itch right now... shame I've got work to be doing. :(

A big "thank you" to all the congratulators (on this board, in e-mails, and even else where). I'm glad to receive such a warm reception. I think it really shows what people think of this site.

Nope, You are the First Banana. I'm just observing. aaa Why don't you put your email address under "contact" in the header, Red. Or maybe "Contact: Red, Bob" with both our addresses (just so those used to writing to me from up there don't get confused....) Or I'll do it if you want.

I'm really pleased with the job Red's doing, and I've getten lots of emails of similar sentiment. For example, received the following this morning:

I was worried for a second when I saw games being posted, but the quality of the software recommendations has been as high as the last administrator.
So there you have it.

I've been trying pretty hard to keep on top of things. I've finnaly gotten into a rythem and created a system that helps me get things done.

I've currently been using Google Docs to sort out potential content, the next few days, and past posts (starting mid August). I've shared access with Bob, so he knows what I'm posting ahead of time.

Why G-Docs? Simple. 1) Bob already had access to it with no need to install anything. 2) I can use it from my work computer. 3) I got a custom all black template from LifeHacker.

So that's what's going on behind the scenes. >:]

Nice touch with the embedded links you added on the latest post.

I don't really think there is a need to justify you use of Google Docs. It's fantastic, especially when you want synchronization with others.
