Those who are familiar with the old website will notice a lot has changed around here. There are several reasons behind this but the most notable one is I rewrote the website.

The cause for me rewriting the website is full of tiny little reasons which built up over time. So, I will not go into detail here but I will bring your attention to two things. The first one is I have been holding out for ASP.Net Core to mature into a state which gave me confidence using it. The second thing is the original design began to look cluttered when I added new sections to it.

If you have managed to read between the lines, you might have noticed me saying this was the plan all along. I knew I was going to rewrite this several years after its original conception. Although, I did not expect the design to change to the degree it has. It was a surprise, at first, but I thought now would be a good chance to look at incorporating a new design. Let us hope I have stumbled onto something we both like.

For those familiar with the old design, I hope you do not find the new layout distracting or annoying. If anything, I hope you enjoy it. If you are a first-time viewer, I guess you can ignore most of the above. Haha.

At the time of writing this announcement, the website is still in the infancy of its re-birth. Because of this, some sections are not accessible right now. During the development process, I will make announcements about the website's progress. I would say use the RSS feed to help you keep track but it is not working. So, for now, I will say watch this space.
