Hang tight, we're revamping and getting ready to host the Gaia Suite's sites.

As of the New Year, IP Technology is closing its doors.

I've done a lot of work, and spent a lot of my time helping, many different people in the last ten years. I'm done. I've reached the point where it is more painful to remain than it is to just walk away, because there are too many people out there that just take and take and take, and I'm frankly too nice for my own good. I'm tired of getting walked on. I'm tired of getting burned. I'm tired of people forgetting that I, too, am human, until it explodes in their face because I can't tolerate their shit anymore. And then I'm the bad guy because I dared have feelings. I'm done.

I don't know what this means for the future of SMF RP. I will still be answering questions and offering assistance as a staff member of RPG Initiative, but I'm not offering any more than that. I'm not making your theme. I'm not fixing your board for you. I'm not making any more public mods. I won't be hosting sites that aren't mine. The Character Manager will, eventually, be updated to version 2.1 and made operable for SMF 2.0.x/2.1.x AND PHP 7.1, and may release some themes I have laying around, and then I'm done.

I need to take care of me, now. If you want the long-winded, rant-y version of why IP Tech is gone now, you can read that here.

What's up, friends!

I've got a lot on my plate this holiday season, so I may well slow way, way down on everything. Some real-life things hitting me, you know how it is. I'm actually unlikely to create a Patreon for my SMF work, it seems like kind of a waste of time, given I have maybe three clients to begin with, and I don't want to drain the ones I do have. Doubly true now that I'm sitting on several board moves, yet again, and I'm just kind of staring at it like, "That's nice."

In other news, Character Manager v. 2.0 does in fact work on SMF 2.0.15, and quite well! I'll be getting it installed on a vanilla SMF, testing things as thoroughly as I can, and then writing the installer for it, but I'm not looking at starting work on that until... well, I said December or January the first time around, but it's very likely to be put off until January or February. I have someone waiting on my slow butt (I'm so sorry, you know who you are).

Finally, hope everyone has a good month, stay warm! Or cool, if you're southern hemisphere.

Hey guys, redid my site! ... I'd been meaning to like a long time ago, I just haven't had time. It's only partially done, right now, lol, but I'll work on getting the rest of it done later. For now, I think just the codes page is down, the rest should work fine. The main page here will now be a tracker, for my current ongoing projects, as well as a little newsfeed so those that are interested can keep up with what I'm doing right now. I'm also setting up a Patreon, so if you're interested in supporting my work on a more consistent basis, consider becoming a patron!

Patrons will gain early sneak-peek access to what I'm doing at any one time, previews of the progression of the Battle and RPG Suites, I need Battle Suite 4 done before I start thinking about the RPG Suite. They'll also gain access to my premium themes, by being allowed to receive one paid theme I make per 6 months, any one of their choice, and I will customise it for their site if they like, so that's a probably $100-150 value for free every so often. Patrons will also be able to vote on colour schemes/features and contribute ideas/make requests for new themes I'm making, and have exclusive access to beta testing for varying mods I make, and be able to request features.

Hope everyone's having a great October, and Happy Samhain!
