Newness... -ish.

Welcome to the "new" Forever Project site.

As you may or may not have known, the site has been facing some strange issues over the past few weeks. A while back a friend of mine had generously offered me server space for my website, and it had been there ever since. I've been ever grateful for her generosity, and it's helped keep The Forever Project running for just about 10 years now.

With a lot of sites on the 'net switching over to a blog-style site structure, I decided to try that route myself, instead of constantly updating the crudely slapped-together news updates I'd been posting for a good while. It worked out well enough, and became the face of the homepage for a couple years. Though it wasn't "the" homepage (just a part of it), it was probably the only part that most people saw anyway, unless they decided to take a look around (which, according to my stats, was mostly limited to the long-outdated UT2004 materials creation tutorial).

Thus, in an effort to save my friend some bandwidth expense and time spent on maintaining my part of the server space, I've decided to move my site to 100% blog till I can figure out what to do with the rest of the content I used to have here. Once again, to my friend who had graciously hosted my site for so long, thank you very, very much!

On a side note, while I've never been a fan of Apple products (save for when I was a kid, I loved my Apple ][GS), I have always understood and respected the changes Steve Jobs and Apple have brought to the market. Without Apple's effect on the masses, many of their competitors' products very likely would not be what they are today. Though my voice is small, I join the world in mourning his passing, and offer my condolences to his family and friends.

  3. Thanks, still alive! :)

    Unfortunately my gallery was taken offline some months ago when I decided to move my site to free sources. I'll put it up again when I have time, but it'll probably use Picasa's free services.

  4. JaredM,

    Would you be willing to contact me via email? I wanted to talk to you more about the forever project, but can't seem to figure out a direct way to contact you. Could you send me an email at my below address?

    Hope to hear from you,

    1. Hi Thomas, I'd just like to confirm that you're not a spambot first. Do you think you could drop a quick reply to this message first? Thanks! :)
