Happy New Year Year 2014!

Revisions:

1-1-14: Initial release.


I want to take the time to say Happy New Year to all my blog readers! I know over the last year the amount of article writing has significantly decreased, but that’s only because I’ve been busy with other things outside of this blog such as work, youtube, facebook, and of course, family life (I did have a wedding after all).

In 2014, expect more of the same tutorials that you loved reading about previously. I will have a bigger emphasis on technology, which include tutorials with raspberry pi, wii,gaming tutorials, and more.

As usual, if there is a video tutorial that you want, please request it at my youtube page (youtube.com/moneyinphx) and we can go from there. Thank you for your support!

Happy New Year 2013!

Revisions:

I want to personally wish everyone here who is a fellow reader of the blog a happy new year 2013, and may you keep all your New Year’s Resolutions (if you got any). 🙂

For 2013, I will continue to do what I do best, and that is to put emphasis on tutorials. I got a long list of tutorials submitted by the community for my youtube channel vstPower, and maybe depending on the content, I may make similar text tutorials here for the blog.

If a certain video is considered too extreme to put on youtube, don’t be surprised I make a tame text equivalent to put here on the blog. Other than that, if you guys got any requests, comments, feedbacks, or just stories of how the blog or the youtube channel has helped your life over the last few years, by all means, let me know!

Thank you for your support, and let’s get ready for some good times in 2013!

[TiT] That’s It Tuesday Issue 13

Tit bird

Hi underground visitors! Welcome to the thirteenth issue of TIT, or That’s It Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I, Versatile1, will give you a rant of whats going on in the blog, whats intended for the future, hope, dreams, etc.

Holy crap, the TiT issue is New Years day! How sweet is that? Last week was Xmas, and now today it is New Year’s Day. 2007 has been a great year for the blog.  I started the blog in April of 2007, but because I was finishing up school, I didn’t really get a chance to really work on this site much.  It was more of a “yea whatever” kind of thing.

Well, once I graduated school, I got a job and this blog fell to the wayside.  Sure, I updated it from time to time, but not serious enough.  In October, life was going well, and then I decided to update the blog more frequently, but with a new goal in mind:  To have at least a new post on the blog each and every day as feasibly possible.

Along the way, I recruited new authors, such as GN, Chyea, Voltaire, Demonator, and the like.  As time grew on, I soon came to realize that I can’t hold everyone to the same expectations.  Some people who were really excited to write on the blog wrote an article or two, and then just disappeared.  I realized that no one will really care what happens here because it isn’t their blog, its mine.  There was a time that Voltaire wanted to trump me in posts, but as you and I know, that won’t happen. 😛

The most popular threads of 2007?  Well, take a look at the top posts and you’ll soon find out.  In summary, popular threads were:

  • Portal thread
  • Private COD4 Server List
  • How to burn PS2 game using DVD Decrypter
  • How to burn PS2 game using Nero
  • How to make your own slide card
  • How to make PS2 magic keys
  • How to find free IRC triple x passwords

Those are the hottest posts of 2007.   What will 2008 bring?  I really don’t know.

Voltaire and I really want more community interaction.  Commenting in posts has finally picked up, which is great.  Forum activity is somewhat dismal, and we are figuring out what can be done to make it more fun, if can be.  How about a contest where users write up an article, and the best underground article is featured on the blog?  I don’t know, I want input from you guys.

Earlier in 2007, I tried to implement ads and google adsense funding.  After awhile, it just didn’t work, my accounts kept on getting disabled.  Although Musicmasteria and Voltaire were hellbent on extra cash, I’m not so much anymore.  Sure, the extra money on the side is nice, but not necessary.  I don’t post to live, I live to post. 😛

With that said, I hope 2008 will be an excellent year.  Will we have new authors?  Will the blog become more explicit?  Who is the Dark Knight?  Who will be the new USA president and so forth?  Come, and let’s discover it together.
