I kind of missed the old MS' Working History, just because of the ability to keep track of what I'm doing. While the Working History proved somewhat to be increasing the pressure because it was available for everyone else to see, it did keep my thoughts and projects a bit more organized. Also, a few people wanted a notes system for PHQ in the past. So I thought of kind of melting everything into one system that everybody on PHQ could use. I've worked on PHQ's Organizer the last three days, including the new Fellow Sadists section, that resembles a friend list.

Now that it's done, maybe some of you would like to take a look at it. It has a few different uses (notes, todo list, project history) which are all described in the current PHQ news, and in the Dragon Ass-istant's brain.

I have one week off now, so I should make some progress with my current projects.

And again the server is back online. Let's hope it'll stay like that for longer than just one day...

After two days of downtime the server seems to be back up! And speaking of "back up", I'll quickly make a backup before something happens again...

Just to throw out some minor projects news for you to devour, I have started one completely new project which I'll put on the projects list once it has reached a certain state of completion. Another yet unmentioned project has been picked up again and should be more or less finished in about one or two months.

And finally, one of my oldest projects seems to slowly crawl out of its dark corner...

Also, if you haven't done so yet, you should get Tanith Lee's Biting The Sun. It's simply beautiful in every way.

I've ordered the next version of Antaran's Journal and it should arrive in about two weeks. If the book turns out alright those who are interested will be able to order a book in about three weeks.

The price will increase a bit though. I'm thinking about what I could send along the book to justify its price. I won't sell it at a profit, it will cost exactly what it costs me. I don't want to be "accused" of "trying to make money" again - for whatever reasons. If anybody feels the need to support me financially, I've heard there's a paypal button to be found somewhere on this page. But it could just be one of those urban legends.

There also seems to be a new entry for IAD's Making Of. Not anything new really, I just needed to talk about it for a bit.

Largely because of your messages - which I can't thank you enough for - I've found my grip again and I'm slowly climbing back up. There will be a few updates in the next few days, but I don't want to tell you which ones. One of the things that put pressure on me was that I kept telling about project progression and then couldn't find the time and/or motivation to fulfill those promises. Even if you say you don't care, it's more of a personal thing. When I promise certain goals to myself and can't reach them, I have this feeling of failure in my head.

Therefore there won't be a lot of project status news anymore. The only indication of progress will be seen on the projects page through each project's percentage of completion. New projects will only be announced and put on the projects page when they have reached at least, say, 80% of completion. IAD is an exception, as I've already started writing the Making Of, and I will continue to contribute more entries. However, I might hold newly written entries back for a while and then upload a bunch of them at once.

The drawback of holding back project news is that I don't get instant feedback, which in case of positive feedback would make it harder in terms of acquiring motivation. On the other hand, it doesn't raise any levels of expectations on your side, thus the motivation level should be the same - if not higher because the only expectation I have to meet then is the overall quality of my projects that you are accustomed to.

The Radical Slim Shake Drink is also still available and will be updated whenever new projects are announced or released - as usual.

Now as for actual project news, the Halfquake Amen Comic is finished and the remaining twelve comics are going to be released in the next few days.

Stay dead.
