Oh, um, right. Post. So, first, the Succession Game is underway; it's currently Beryl's turn. (Sadly, he had the first two seasons completed before DF crashed and he had to start over...) My journal will be here when it's ready (along with everyone else's contributions). If I could concentrate for even half a minute tonight, I'd start working on my entries, but... it may have to wait a day.
I received a rather surprising email today from Ross Watson, the new senior RPG developer for Dark Heresy at Fantasy Flight Games; either via Google or a post in the FFG forums, he came across the Dark Heresy character generator and - rather than sending me a C&D or DMCA complaint - asked if I'd like to improve it. So, I'm going to be finally finishing the character save feature, adding a couple other touches, and any other suggestions he happens to have. The same goes for you lot: Is there anything you'd like to see added to the DH or WHFRP chargens? Are there any other systems that could use a decent chargen?
Nothing much else to report. Xen hosting stuff is still ongoing, my company's external closed beta will start pretty soon and hopefully the service will go live in the first couple weeks of August. I'll be moving most if not all of sup/tg/ onto it; between the constant server failures and the simple bandwidth and power provided by the Xen machines, I would be a fool not to take advantage of it. My birthday's coming up on the 28th, good a time as any to buy myself a new coffee maker since I broke the carafe from the old one. And... um... bacon. Mmm, bacon.
Oh, yes, right, last bit. This site could use a bit of an overhaul. Even just a changing banner graphic in the upper-left corner would be nice. If anyone's got suggestions or actual graphics to use, I'm all for it. Additional suggestions for the layout would be good.
Edity: Note to self: DH chargen now includes ability to pick starting class; it needs to change available classes based on chosen starting world or something, or at least let the player know if the chosen starting world conflicts with the chosen class. Better yet, choosing a class first should restrict the planets from which the player can come. After this is settled, add the "save character" feature, add the ability to choose a starting class to WHFRP as well, and add a "printer friendly" version of the stats for both.
