General Housekeeping

There comes a time in every blog’s life when it needs to really spread its wings and register its own damn domain name. So guess what? That’s exactly what we did!

Hopefully you got to us by typing http://www.clockworkmanual.com into the awesome bar (and if you’re still using one of those address bar things, well then you need to get yourself Firefox 3) and now you’re sitting on the edge of something which all three of us writers are very proud of.

I’ve also added a couple of minor upgrades to the site in the form of a fancy logo up top (made by our resident Trolley….Dude), and a blogroll over on your left. I’m in two minds as to whether I want to remove the Blogger bar on the top of this page. On the one hand it looks unsightly and doesn’t gel well at all with the colour scheme we’re going for, but on the other it provides a means by which more people browsing blogger can find our little site. It’ll probably disappear over time, but if I can change it’s colour to brown we will have reached a nice compromise.

Edit: Wow, that was easier than I expected…

All that remains to be done is to check if all our behind the scenes stat counters still work, which I assume they will seeing as they’re run by Google, but you never know.

As for what I’ve been playing – I’ve been loving (and hating) Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP. After hearing what a huge phenomenon it’s become in Japan I figured I’d get me a slice of the pie, and let me tell you, I can see the appeal, but the execution is a bit hit and miss. I’m not going to write a full review until I finish the game in its entirety, but I’m not going to finish it in a while, so I”m afraid the internet will have to wait.

Additionally I’m slogging my way through Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii. I don’t like it. Enough said.

So thanks very much for anyone who takes the time to read this blog.

Peace out

Jon
