antman.info website has gone through a major change. The first thing you'll probably notice is the new layout, but there have been plenty of other changes as well. It has been almost two years since the previous major update and I've been working on this new version for about 3-4 weeks now. Here's a list of the main changes:
There used to be a few different page hit counters on this site, but the actual hit counter I used stopped working last summer and now the license on the Flag Counter is about to expire so I removed it as well. Of couse I could use the free version of the Flag Counter but it comes with an ad and I have a strict no ads policy on my website. Anyway, during the three years the Flag Counter was running, this site got hits from 167 different countries. So there are no actual counters anymore, but I'm still using Google Analytics to monitor the traffic on the site and AddThis to monitor the social shares and clicks. I've been thinking about starting to use Piwik to monitor the traffic and hits, but it will have to wait until the next major update of the site.
I would like to wish Happy New Year to you all! When I look back on the year 2016, there have been some happy moments but mostly the year has been pretty bad personally. I won't go into details here, but all I can say that 2017 can't be worse than 2016 was. But why should I give too much thought to looking back when I can look forward. Hopefully 2017 will be a great year for everyone! Anyway, without further ado I'll just quote someone:
You should give a fuck. You really should, but only about things that set your soul on fire. Save your fucks for magical shit in 2017!
Decided to change my social media handle on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The new handle is AManCalledAnt instead of the old antmanchurian that I was using. At the same time I deleted my Flickr account since I really didn't need it after all. Here are quick links to my current social media pages:
Separated the Wolfenstein section from the main site. This was due to the planned major updates on the site coming in 2017 and I haven't really updated anything on that section of the site for ages. At the same time the userscripts were moved from under the Miscellaneous section under the new wolf pages.
And finally it begins... My summer vacation! I've got five weeks off of work and this news post is the last thing I do at work before I sign off. There haven’t been any updates on the website for some months, this is due to me being lazy on updating something and as I'm probably spending most of my vacation countryside so there probably won't be any updates coming in August on the website either.
