Not much to tell this month. More skyrim playing, as well as a lot of Civilization 5 + Enterprise combo pack.

And then came the steam holiday specials with tempting offers every day. So a lot of gaming ;)

Tomorrow I will start to organize the annual lists for the year in media and music, until then, happy new year!

Sound like a great movie, doesn't it? smiley

Anyway, started reading the 'Sword of truth' again, was some time ago I read it, and since then the series have been completed, just bought all the missing books and started going through them all again. At book four now (temple of the winds) and unfortunately thats one of the slower once, I'm kinda stuck in it right now. Still looking forward to nr. 6 though, that one was good, and of course the new once I haven't read yet.

Mostly posting this time to add up some books/anime/movies for the 2009 summary post (like the one i did last year). That post will be in january.

Also working on a remake on the 'chairs' wallpaper for 1680x1050 resolution. It's kinda frustrating though, the last one was so good, this one wont match it :/, wonder if I will ever make one that will smiley

Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year smiley

Blog: A late happy new year
2008 already!? Nothing new here though, the theme is back to your regular one, no more xmas until next december smiley. 75000 visitors passed, wohoo! And maybe a new game this year?
Blog: Happy New Year!
Wohoo, hello 2007! This site is also celebrating its one year anniversary (well, at least in this form). I have amazed my self by writing something here at least once a month, I've never managed to do something like this before, wohoo me!

Now for some plans for 2007:

» Redesign of skallen.net

I'm gonna remake the site to use only css for layout, goodbye tables! It will open up for easier placement and design, and hopefully make it easier to design new themes as well.

» Less gaming

Ooo, this one is tricky. But I'm gonna try to lessen my gaming a bit, in favor for doing more constructive stuff like programming, drawing, writing... Basically, creating stuff i can show off smiley.

» Learn to draw (make a webcomic)

Heh, probably not going to happen, but who knows...

» A new flash game!!

No, really! Already have a beta of it, just need a bit of motivation.

Anyway, about that shameless ad about knightfight, I'm not playing anymore, so don't click smiley. Thanks everyone who did click though.

Wow, one day into the new year and I have already doubled the number of newsposts smiley. I've also double the number of projects! Check it out under showcase. Also made a new splash page over at www.skallen.net directing people this way (with a big purple arrow), and some new php-code not visible to anyone!

This is turning into a blogg, beware! (soon the rss feed will be up as well!!)
