After having forum registration re-enabled for about 1 day I had to pull the plug again. Almost immediately I got about 5 spam registration requests.
So, for now we will have this disabled. If you wish to get a forum account please drop me a line and I’ll set up an account for you.
As some of you might know, I live in New Zealand. More specifically I do live in Christchurch, a great city which had the bad luck of being in the way of some major earthquakes over the past 6 months. The most recent of those hit the city big square and fair and as a result we, like tens of thousands, have been without water, power and lots of other bits of infrastructure in the last two weeks.
Now, working with computers kind of sucks without power, so other than saying that I am back and unscathed there isn’t really a lot to report.
The aftershocks still affect our daily life and will continue to do so for quite some time. Having said that I think it is important to stress that I and my family have still been rather lucky and there are plenty of other people around us that have been through a lot worse. Our thoughts are going to all those suffering and those that have lost loved ones.
The city that I still love will not be the same after things have settled and all the rubble cleared – and there will surely be mixed feelings over time seeing how things change.
I’ll be back doing some ZenMagick work and also trying to keep up with questions, etc. I do hope that within the next 2-3 weeks there will be a mostly stable snapshot available for those curious to see what we have been up for ZenMagick 0.9.12.
