*Some Dust off the Surface Blow*

*One Eternity Later*

WOW, it really has been an eternity, hasn’t it? As you may have noticed, it’s been quite a while since my last activity on this website. This is due to a number of reasons. First of all, I rarely have time to work on private stuff nowadays, and when I do, I usually lack the motivation to do something with this website. Usually I’m lazy, but even when I’m not lazy, I prefer to invest my time into programming. Secondly, I’m not really happy with this website’s design anymore. Mostly with the fact that it’s so outdated and static. I’d prefer a more dynamic website, making full use of the potential of modern browsers. At the very least, the website should resize itself depending on monitor size. For this, I may have to use someone else’s WordPress theme as the tools I know lack the functionality to export themes with that capability (and I certainly lack the experience, time and motivation to design a theme from scratch myself). So basically, I want to redo this whole website, but don’t have the time and motivation to do so right now. Thirdly, maintaining website content in multiple languages is really time-consuming, especially when you want all your content to fulfil certain quality criterias. For this reason, I may very well drop multi-language support alltogether. After all, I expect every person visiting this website to have at least a basic understanding of the English language, which is everything needed to understand the content on this website. Multi-language plugins for WordPress are pretty nasty to work with, anyways.

To get an idea of what kind of website dynamics I’m going for, you can check out my Portfolio page here (or by clicking on “My Portfolio” in the navigation bar). That website is also more regularly updated, so you may get a rough idea of what I’ve been up to lately.

I’ll let you know when I make progress with this website.
