Things have been pretty quiet around Oovium lately, but I finally have some updates to give:
- The GoDaddy server that hosts aepryus.com and oovium.com has been dying for months now. GoDaddy seems to have no ability or desire to do anything about this. I have been extremely pressed for time and consequently have been coaxing the server to limp along for the time being. However, in the new year, moving aepryus.com and oovium.com off of GoDaddy will be high up on my todo list.
- The Russians have won. I don't have the time to battle Russian spammers to this forum any longer, so I have shut down all new registrations. Ultimately, to combat this, I plan to handle forum registration from within the Oovium app itself. This however will take some time and it could be quite a while before the next version of Oovium appears. If someone wants to register or just wants to talk to me directly, send me an email. My address appears on the 'Contact' section of both aepryus.com and oovium.com.
- Generally, my time crunch has been caused by my running out of run way. I have had to take on a full time job. Obviously, this will be a serious blow to the Oovium development schedule.
- There is, however, one bit of somewhat good news. This summer I took the lasts bits of my runway before I got a job, in order to complete a Hail Mary project. I have recently submitted this project, Aexels, to the AppStore. Aexels is a free app that makes use of the Oovium visual programming language. If by some miracle Aexels were to accomplish its goals, I would perhaps be able to return to Oovium sooner than later.
