Comments Off on Twenty Eleven Recap: #4 Loving AJAX, Despising Ads

AJAX isn’t exactly new. 2011 was the year I discovered it as a solution and embraced it. The ability to actually return data and update a page is quite nice. I’ve used it to good effect on the majority of my random utilities and am continuing to increase my knowledge of what is possible.

Fans of advertising don’t like my approach since it doesn’t lead to additional page views. I’m glad they don’t. Advertisements irritate me. Especially when they are not targeted at the content I’m viewing. Sure, I love hardware supply sites, but why in the hell would I want to see an advert for them on a RPG site is beyond me. Not a single ad will appear on this site unless someone steps forth with big dollars — six digits plus. No worries of that happening.

I’m in the process of working on some new functionality. Slow progress but the end result will be cool.

Comments Off on The Phantom ‘Mithril Mage’

Over the last few months, I have been getting increasing numbers of people visiting based off ‘mithril mage’ as a search term. The first time I saw it mentioned was kesher’s post on the odd74 forums. Since it is becoming increasingly popular, I decided to go with the flow.

The hostname, mithrilmage.com has been registered and will point to the mithrilandmages.com domain. Quick and simple. It is a bit shorter for those who still type in urls. People like me. The shorter domain should be available within 48 hours as the update progresses to the various domain servers.

The label inspired me. So I used it to inspire someone else. The results should launch sometime in 2012.
