Just realized it has been *2 years* since my last update. Wow.
In the meantime, I have been to Hawaii and Vegas, gotten engaged (not in Vegas or Hawaii, though), toured some vineyards, bought a house (unfortunately not with a vineyard) and am in the middle of renovating the master bathroom in said house. Same job, though, which is good.
On the BYOND front, I got my server working, got distracted helping a firend with a mud. Got *that* one into a very fun game. (See http://www.mudconnect.com/mud-bin/ simple_search.cgi?Mode=MUD&mud=Pict It's an awesome historical inspired hack n slash text mud.) Then, I lost all desire to do a fantasy text mud because said mud did pretty much everything I wanted in a mud.
I messed with newer BYOND skin stuff, which is amazing, to work on a post-apoc game, but gave up on that since I don't have the inclination to put in the time to make the graphics I wanted (think Fallout).
So then I went back to text based games and am dabbling with a pseudo sci fi mud that I am sure nobody would play anyway :-)
