From beyond the grave

Well, perhaps that's a little dramatic.

Thought I might post a quick status of the project(s)...

The simple fact is that over the last 6 months or more, I just haven't felt motivated to work on any retro projects at all. And to a degree my interests in other (non-development) areas of the retro hobby have diminished as well. I can't offer any concrete explanation as to why, other than my priorities have of late moved away from the computer keyboard and into other areas of my life.

Having said that however, I haven't felt any urge to give up the hobby altogether, or even to scale back my collections or range of interests in retro video games and microcomputers. To the contrary I've actually picked up a couple of books and a few new pieces of hardware in that time, and have my eye on yet another. Not that I've read or used any of those recent acquisitions.

So I'm confident that, when the time is right, I'll resume my retro hobby and - more to the point for this blog - my porting projects. My resolve is to finish off the projects that have languished, most (but not all) incomplete, for an embarrassing length of time and just release them to the public. And although I had previously earmarked the next few projects, I'll likely reconsider those when the time comes.

For now, I can't offer any further insights nor when I'm likely to resume my porting projects. I won't really know until I'm actually ready to do so. But perhaps the very fact that I've been inclined to update this blog is a good sign?!?
