Well it would seem that my plans to provide more news posts and start promoting PGD and Pascal Gamer before I left in November have collapsed.
My slightly over one year iMac has gone wonky on me and I cannot seem together it to work again with reinstalls and diagnostic tools. Therefore there must be a hardware issue of which I'll have to send it in together it fixed. Sadly that will take more time than I an spare as it means a 3 hour drive to the next major city of where there is an Apple Store where it can be dropped off. Since the weekend has come and gone I can either take a day off work or wait until the next weekend to drive there myself.
From then I will most likely have to wait at least a week just to get an answer back or for some kind of resolution of which I will already be gone on my trip until the end of November.
So for all those who follow my blog and wonder why it has been a little slow these days, I've been a little tied up and my computer is now a 27" brick sitting on my desk. My iPad thankfully has been able to augment some of my simpler day-to-day simple tasks such as email and web browsing, however other more integral things such as generating graphics and other materials for PGD news posts, updating that Pascal Gamer website to promote the iPad app, creating documents and materials for the next PGD Challenge, etc cannot be done until I have my system back up and working again.
So stick with us as we push on and keep PGD going but unfortunately the exciting stuff will have to wait until December it seems.
