I gotta tell you...this feels good. It feels right. DRIVE was something I had wanted to start for years...and you guys were very kind to let me dabble with it, here, on Saturdays. But it deserves its own site. It needs its own site. And now it's got one! So head on over! Poke around a little -- see what's shakin'.
Tyler Martin of MindFaucet did a lovely job designin' it, and my awesome host and tech guru Phillip at Dumbrella Hosting worked wonders implementing it into his architecture. I can't thank those two enough.
Some thoughts, for those interested:
1.) Will DRIVE still appear on Sheldon on Saturdays?
For the time being, yes. At least for a few more weeks, to help folks transition over who'll miss this announcement. Longer term....I honestly haven't made up my mind.
2.) Will DRIVE update on Saturdays at the new site?
It'll get moved to Wednesdays, probably.
3.) Will there be more than one DRIVE per week?
This is something I'd *love* to do, but time is a big factor, here. Know that I really want to...but am just not sure if I can, yet. DRIVE got started, and continues, as a labor of love more than anything else...so I find time for it whenever I can.
4.) Is this DRIVE site the secret creative project you mentioned, a long time ago?
No, that's somethin' else. Somethin' I haven't talked about, yet. (...not out of mystery, mind you: I've just learned that creative projects that get talked about, aren't creative projects that get finished.)
5.) If I notice abug in the new DRIVE site, how do I tell you?
Any bug reports are welcome via e-mail or forum comments -- with huge thanks! As with any new site, there'll be some hiccups as we go (so far...with the RSS, some of the CSS colors, and some of the user-signup stuff), but that'll all get ironed out in the next week or two.
The site have a simple and yet lovely design. I can say that when it comes to its loading state the site was fast even there are lot of graphics. Good job. By the way I have joined the site and see to it that I will participate on those discussions there :)
