Groundtactics.com - Returning to it's roots

I've had this domain for years. It's suited different purposes for me at different times but since the introduction of a wife and kids in my life it's kinda grown stale.

So recently I've decided I'm going to try to return this site closer to it's roots. While I doubt the quake 3 clan this site was founded around will ever re-unite, I'm bringing this site back to as close to those roots as I can. I'm a fan of gaming and that's what I'll be making clear here.

questionWhat to do?

It's been a long time coming.  Social networks have given people a way to decide who's content to subscribe to and consolidated it all into one place.  This has effectively killed the need for people to host personal websites and blogs as we know it.

I think 2020 will be the last year I host the site in the format it's in and try to do community stuff with it.  2021 I'll change the format up to something that makes more sense in these times.  I still like the idea of having a personal space to host projects and ideas and content outside of the influence of advertisers so I'm not closing down or anything.

Any community interactivity will be shifted to established social networks and media sharing will be handled by platforms built for that.  Beyond that, this site will probably just become a bunch of landing pages for my various projects - disassociated from any CMS platform.  It'll be interesting to say the least.  We'll see what 2021 brings. 

So that'...

xxGangBuddy - An app to help connect to "Gang Beasts" online games

If you've ever played Gang Beasts recently you've probably tried online multiplayer.  It's great fun until you want to find a server to join with friends.  That's when it all falls apart.

Just recently in the 0.5.x unstable branch of the game they added private server support.  So the solution for games online with friends is almost there but not quite.  There's a very bare bones interface in the game for directly connecting to somebody's private server.  It's clunky and still slows things down when people just want to get going.  To address this I've set out to supplement this feature with GangBuddy.

exclamationDomain renewal snafu

May 17, 2016, 12:33:08 pm by Ed | Views: 4955 | Comments: 0

Just a tiny bit pissed off right now, but it'll pass.

Even though I paid to renew this domain, something hung up with the registrar and it never re-activated.  From the outside world, I've been down for the last couple days.

I run mostly free services from this domain and don't even advertise.  Game servers and a few websites mainly.  These days what mostly drives what I host is my kids.  I mainly host games they play and maybe a couple extras between a few close friends.  I thought job pressure is bad, but that's nothing compared to my kids coming to me when they can't get into the Minecraft server I run because the domain name's no longer registered.

At least it's fixed and I don't have to try figure out how to explain how the DNS system works to a 4 year old anymore.
