Hello again everyone!  I just wanted to make a quick post and let everyone know that I'm still alive and kicking.  No, really, I am.  See?  I still have a heartbeat.  :P  Actually, I have still been around, but work and all my projects that I'm doing are keeping me constantly busy, thus I haven't had much time for writing, or blogging, or any of that kinda stuff.  But I have been working on this site.  Mostly it's been adding to and expanding the new image gallery, as well as employing a number of bug fixes and new features, which is mostly what I've been doing today.  So here's what I was able to address:

1.  Fixed an issue with pagination that hid the last few results in the blog, and via the newly added pagination in the gallery.  That has been fixed.  It was due to a counting error in the pagination function in the functions module.  Apparently my scripts have as much trouble mathimicating as I do. :P

2.  Added pagination to image categories.  Now you won't have to load all the thumbnail images (some now exceeding 400+) contained in a single image gallery category.  The pages are now broken down to show just 28 entries per page.  That number can be easily adjusted if you guys want more on a page.  Just let me know if you do want the display amount changed and I'll gladly adjust that.

3.  Populating the gallery - There are now over 1100 of my favorite images in the gallery, with more to come as I get a chance to upload them.  Please feel free to check them out.

And that's all for updates and bug fixes.  The above probably doesn't sound like a lot.  But once you get into the nuts and bolts of it, that's actually a lot of work.  Now, with that said, I have one more thing for you.  Namely, feature requests.  If there's something you'd like to see here on ROI, please let me know.  I'd be happy to add it if it's possible to add.  And, as always, thank you for being a faithful follower and reader of my books.  Oh, what's that you're asking?  When am I going to get more books out?  Well, funny you should ask as I was also going to mention scheduling issues.  Namely, I don't have enough time right now to even breath, let alone write.  And my editor is out of action, so book 3 of Offworld Chronicles will be delayed even further until she's back up and operational again.

But, in this line of work, that's kinda expected.  I also have my reborn writing wiki that needs populating, I still have to take care of every day, I have family to take care of, a job, etc.  I wish I could get paid to write every day, but alas, I don't, so the regular job take precedent as far as my time goes. :(  But, I hope to have book 3 out no later than August.  I know, I know, it's super, super late, but I can't help it.  Once I can get back on schedule, I'll be releasing that, and *hopefully* (I'm not making any promises here) will be able to get back on my every 6 months publishing schedule.  Now, if someone wants to offer me a hand populating the new wiki, I'm game, as I could use the help. :)  But, if not, then I'll have to do it all myself, which will be several months of work easily. o.0

Anyhow, that's my site, writing and other updates for this time around.  Have fun everyone, and keep reading!!
