Ricky Raccoon Needs Help Posted 3 years ago
I've always liked Ricky Raccoon's (Noctivagus on Eka's Portal) stories, but now he's got some big medical bills.

I wound up hospitalized recently with a cancerous tumor. They removed the tumor, but I still need chemo and radiation, and now I'm facing some very, very daunting bills. I did start a gofundme if anyone wants to donate to donate, or even just spread the word. Honestly, even well wishes are much appreciated.
Busy Mode Posted 7 years ago

I have just recently begun a new job at which I need to do quite a lot of organization to get everyone setup on the same page. It has been very busy and I've not responded to people very much. This is going to continue for at least a few more weeks before I have everything setup to be back to normal.

If I have commissioned you for something, and you're waiting for me to do something, please remind me! I probably forgot.

If you want me to commission you, please feel free to send ideas, I will still look at them, but remember I may be slow to respond for now.

Anthrocon 2015 Posted 8 years ago
Hello, yes, I am going to AC this year. I thought I should mention this stuff, since I never do it ahead of time. Even if I am a bit late.

Where are you staying?
I am going to be at the Westin

What day are you getting there?
Wednesday July 8th

How are you traveling?

How is the best way to find you?
You should send me a text message. Other furry vores I talk to can get my number for this by asking.

Are there any panels you might be attending?
I don't really go to panels, I will go to the fursuit parade tho.

Will you be suiting?
Yes, at least for the parade and in the evenings when it isn't too hot.

Can I talk to you?
Yes, talking is allowed.

FURFRIGHT? Posted 9 years ago
Hello, I am at Furfright now!

I don't have a dealer table, but I plan to play games.

Who else is here this year? People ought to send a PM for phone number!
Away - Anthrocon Posted 10 years ago
I am going to be at Anthrocon until Monday, so that means I won't be here except randomly.

Of course if you are also going to be there; that probably isn't a problem, because you can just contact me there. If you don't know how to do that you can just ask and I'll let you know.
Leapocalypse Fixed Posted 11 years ago
Leapocalypse is fixed on all servers. You can return to work.

I was actually working on installing the system on the new server while this happened. It was a big surprise to find that an issue which happened on starfire could be reproducible on the new system. Rebooting fixed, but that it was actually caused by the leap second insertion?
Returning Soon Posted 12 years ago
I have not been here to respond or continue with the updates in over a week, and will continue to be mostly away until next Tuesday. However hopefully after that I will be back and will be able to resume. The first order of business is going to be posting a list of recent and future plans for enhancements. After that, I have six projects which will need the assistance of artists and a story author.
In addition to finding some artists with paypal time and interest, I will need to investigate whether it is worthwhile to add additional featuresets. Enhanced video support, Streaming support, oekaki, and beedraw integration were all on the drawing table for g4 but not implemented.
Gallery v4 Posted 12 years ago
Work on the Proof-of-Concept implementation for G4 is coming along more rapidly now, its essentially usable from a non-artist perspective.
One issue I am having now tho, is as I look through the items and hop from person to person I keep seeing good posts and want to +fav or comment on them. But I'm in the test database and I know it won't go anywhere. And yet half the reason I want to comment at the time is its convenient, fast, and easy to do in G4; so I don't really want to find the same item in G3 to post a comment in the old system.

Some areas will certainty need user input on design and behavior, specifically the new message page, favorites, and especially the community tag-editing system. Once we move past the proof-of-concept phase into the actual...

Icon Upgrade Posted 14 years ago

I would like to announce that I have upgraded my user icon (sometimes called avatar) This was done with the assistance of Humbug, who helped by creating the new icon. I think that it is sufficiently interesting to merit a blog posting to notify people about it.

Do you think I should also use this new icon on other websites where I have an icon?

Please advise
Blog Notification Posted 14 years ago
We have added a new feature to the g3 message page. Now whenever someone you are watching posts a blog, you will receive a notification on your message page, just like when they post a new gallery item.

For those interested in the technical details, this has been implemented a bit differently in the back-end than the other notifications. Since this relied on detecting actions that take place inside phpbb3, instead of inside the gallery, I opted to try and not modify the phpbb3 source code at all. So instead of creating the messages in code after a blog was made, I added a trigger to the blog table, so the database automatically populates the messages when a new blog is inserted. This model seems more elegant, and I will use this going forward.
