Every once in a while I get a burr in my ass** to update the ol’ Recycle Bin, but time and again we always come back to one thing. Green is a must. Back to the green theme in just a moment. Over the weekend I upgraded from WordPress 2.9.x to 3.3.x without any major [...]
Almost. calvertgames.com domain was registered September 24, 2001, with a simple Vision: “With that said, Calvert Games promises to be an interesting ride, and an engaging endeavor. I cannot promise to provide the timeliest reviews, hard-hitting industry news, sneak-peek previews, and gobs of media. I can promise that Calvert Games will provide a no nonsense [...]
It is hard to believe that Calvert Games posted its first content September 27, 2001. That would be nine years ago for those of you mathematically challenged. Color me pleased with this mighty fine run.
I am going to be off line much of the week, working in Edinburgh. Been there before; hope to have some good ale along the way in the fine drinking establishments. This is the second time I have been in the UK during the World Cup. Last time I was in London; I guess the [...]
Just for the heck of it I decided to pick up some additional domains earlier this morning to go along with .COM and .US. I doubt these pickups will receive additional traffic, but it just did not seem right to leave these available for someone else to reference.
Don’t fret from the lack of updates. I decided to take a mini sabbatical; call it Spring Break 2010! Regular programming will resume shortly. Stay tuned and you will be the first to know.
I am traveling to Calgary for business; will be back to regular posting action starting Saturday. Check back daily for some articles to help you pass the time. Yes, I have several articles lined up, coming your way in my absence. Most likely I am going to miss a few days of posting, but that [...]
This weekend I am offering up another round of site maintenance for your viewing pleasure. Several upgrades are in the works, and should be appearing throughout the weekend. Tags Away With the upgrade to WordPress 2.9.2, I can introduce tags, or more importantly, Clouds of Tags. Calvert Games has amassed over 2000 articles in its [...]
The weather this weekend has been absolutely wonderful – upper 60s and blue skies on Saturday and Sunday. We spent most of our free time outdoors – throwing footballs, practicing soccer, riding bikes, going on long walks, and cleaning up the year. You get the picture. It would have been a perfect weekend for shooting [...]
I have been playing around with a lot of different WordPress themes the last 12 or so hours, and finally found one that I think will stick. It is different than the old 3 column layout, but I think it is nice and crisp. The design is fairly simple and easy to modify. I think [...]
Yea me! I just upgraded from Word Press 2.2 to 2.9, which is a pretty substantial upgrade to [knock on wood] not experience any issues with the upgrade process. For those of you that are interested, I followed these fairly simple upgrade instructions. Of course, like a good company man, I did a backup, made [...]
I plan to perform some much needed site maintenance over the weekend. Hopefully most of this will be transparent to the masses. Starting tonight you may see some error messages, strange behavior, and otherwise stuff that may make you scratch your head. You need not worry. While maintenance on this site has long been neglected, [...]
I thought it would be interesting to do a quick recap of January. From a gaming perspective, I lost my soul months ago, so longtime readers can appreciate that content provided for your viewing pleasure has been all over the map. Ah, but the winds of change are blowing, and the Recycle Bin (dare I [...]
I should probably put this on the About Us page of the site. One of these days I will get around to it, but since there is only me in us, I have not gotten around to putting up an About page. Sue me. It looks like the site is becoming rather seasonal. Videogames in [...]
Finally had a few minutes to make this place look a little more like home. I have been putting in lots of minor tweaks and whatnot, hopefully all for a better end-user experience. I plan to do more housekeeping in the coming days, but all that matters today is that Mean Green is alive and [...]
