I am very busy presently with a new web project that I hope to launch later this year, which requires a lot of new content to be written. At the same time however I will keep the content coming here at Design-Ireland, while also doing incremental updates to the backend of this site.
I will not do any major infrastructural upgrades to this site until they are fully designed and tested, for example the promised user forum and article commenting system. Such upgrades will also require user account handling functionality, as I am not keen on allowing anonymous posting which can encourage spammers. Alas, so much code and content to write, so little time :-(
