In between everything else, I’ve been working on transferring a rather large personal wiki to an online host. You can take a look at it here; it’s not quite done yet.
Before you complain about the host, please look at the pages. It should be painfully obvious that my wiki needs were very thin, and so this works just as well for me as any other.
I am doing this mostly to alleviate the burden of keeping track of console-based software that I’ve looked at, over the life of this blog.
Oddly enough, I’m in the same position today as I was five years ago, when I started the site you’re reading now: I had a lot of notes and reminders that I wanted to keep in an organized fashion, in a place I could access remotely.
Only this time I need something more like a reference, instead of a diary. Just a link to the home page and a quick blurb about the program is all I usually need.
So it’s not necessarily comprehensive, and I doubt it ever would be. I’m debating if I want to open it up to everyone, or keep it as a personal resource.
I’m also working on a similar project with a few other people, so this one might remain in this form, as a personal version of that larger effort.
If you skim the site you’ll see that I’ve only worked up through the letter C in my list, so it’s still a work in progress.
I don’t plan to add much more than a link and a blurb; if the home page is one click away, it should have all the information I need.
I might add a screenshot or two if the home page lacks one, but that sounds like a bit of effort. Wouldn’t want that, you know.🙄
