Hello 2013… Happy New Year Everyone!

2012 has been a great year with a cherry on top… just before new years on the 27th my wife gave birth to our brand new daughter who is doing very well. This last year has been good, I got a permanent contract at work and we moved into our own house back in feb, all in all it’s been a rather eventful year. Of course the last few weeks have all been baby filled, now with things settling down and gradually getting in to the rhythm of broken sleep and changing diapers there is time in between to do grown up stuff.

What grown up stuff is there to be done? you may wonder?
[Tech Talk]
Well I noticed a few things on my site that needed fixing so i’ve tended to that, you’ll now notice that all unity webplayers on the site should be working much better. Plus i’ve updated the theme template to the newest version. Not to forget updating wordpress which was well over due.

In the near future I’m playing with the idea to switch hosting as this is getting to be a little over the top for something not generating much in return. If your reading this now your welcome to donate if you like what I do here, or if you have any tips for me please comment.

I may offer some nice stuff to the Unity Community via the Asset Store once I’ve figured out what that could/should be. If you have any requests or ideas for what an experienced Unity Developer should make and you’d be willing to pay a nice sum for it let me know.

Other than all of that technical stuff, I’m looking forward to the remainder of 2013 and what it has to bring, as well as watching my daughter grow and build her character. I do hope everyone enjoys 2013 in good health and free of negative stuff, so.. for now I wish you all a happy new year!

Pro Tip: Don’t let the bed bugs bite and steer clear of smelly diapers.

Updated Site Theme

Ok first of all, it was definitely needed wasn’t it.. the old Twenty Ten template has been and gone… plus it dont look that swiffy anymore..

So yes i’ve updated the theme and I think it’s a definite improvement! Saves me a huge hassle making one and this one is customizable enough for me… and i’ve always said “I’ll update my site sometime soon” with slight “Yeah Right” feeling.. Anyway it is done..

I still need to figure out what im going to do with some content areas.. I may also just disable them as they don’t really add very much to the whole shebang just yet… other solution is to start brainstorming a bunch and come up with some really superb content.. but theres that “Yeah Right” again…

So for now I hope you like this new layout if not let me know.. I’m bursting to make your life easier 😉 YEAH RIGHT!

 

Unity Development

At work I’m currently working on a big simulator (using Unity3D) for nautical stuff. If time allows it I’ll post more unity related content and play my part in the Unity3D community. Keep an eye on this site in the next two months or so and there should be more here (if not you can kick me)..
I really should update this site this time last year I was building a new layout so I guess I should finish it and get it up and running once and for all..!!!?!?!?!?

Return of the iKriz Gallery

Well I hope you enjoy the images, I hope it doesn’t get too big so I dont have to remove it again otherwise it may be handy to move it somewhere else in the future but I’ll do that when I get there.. for now its staying put. Checkout the photos from our world trip. If there are any requests or comments feel free smile have fun !

Switched Pages

For me, ExpressionEngine makes templating and creating plugins a whole lot easier than the complex Typo3. Because of this i decided to make the step to EE. It makes publishing on the web feel more natural. (that’s my wefeelfine.org sentence lets see if it actually comes up there).
Only a few more days till we leave to London and then California follow my travels on the following sites:
iKriz.nl Travels
Kris & Bridget Travels (Dutch Site)

Site Content

It has finally happend, I’ve placed various content i’ve made on my site, gradually I hope to build up more of a portfolio. I also now have a working news system (finally figured out how it works).. i’m working on a commenting system and blog etc.. all in good time. Thats it for now i’ll do my best to keep this up to date.
