Status Update

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

OK, so there’s no way I’m going to have this finished before 2009, bearing in mind it’s the 31st of December right now. For that I can only apologise, but work has been insane lately (for example, a few days ago I claimed 4 hours overtime for a single day – my workday is 9 on top of that!)

However, I offer something to prove I’m making progress. You should now see on the top right of the index page a second item on the pages list. This is a list of the 100% region-free systems that need no special changes to play imported games. This list does not contain systems that have partial region-locking – for example, PlayStation 3 will have a seperate page as even though its discs are region-free, the regioned downloads are worthy of a seperate discussion. I also have hidden away an in-progress list that I’m working on, that will eventually serve as a hub for all the pages on the site.

I have a large clump of days off as of today for nearly a week, so I’m hoping that the site will be all-but done by then – in the mean time, accept my apologies and remember that even the best planned schemes sometimes overrun a little. Rest assured I fully intend to finish this. 😉

Happy New Year, everyone!

Jan 5 Edit: OK. Yeah, it’s not gonna be done when I thought it was – at this point, I’m just going to say “End of January” as a target. I realise I’m making a ton of excuses here, but family commitments have taken a lot more time up than I thought they would. This will probably be the last update post I make until I have some substancial progress to report, so hang tight. It might not look like I’m doing anything, but I am, honest. 😀
