Dark mode engaged

Posted by eXonyte at 10:11 PM

I finished adding a dark mode theme and because it's my personal preference, it's the new default. That said, if your browser supports your system level light/dark mode options, you'll actually see the theme for whichever you've chosen. Only problem is that the Twitter feed only gives a choice of dark or light and it doesn't properly switch between the two yet. As such, the Twitter feed is permanently in dark mode until that changes.

I am still here, really

Posted by eXonyte at 10:28 PM

It's been a wild ride these past few years. Maybe I should start telling the stories? If nothing else, I'm going to be moving the Realm to a new webhosting service very soon and I'll probably celebrate by adding dark mode support to the site theme and fixing the Archives page. I'm still not sure what else I'm going to do with the Realm, but at the very least it's not going anywhere and neither am I. See you all soon.

Edit: Ok so I fixed the Archives page, and I'm not sure that it ever actually worked properly, but it was a really easy and obvious fix.

Edit 2: Updated the Twitter feed and tweaked some CSS. Going to bed now.

Funny how plans change over time. I never intended to go over a year in silence, but as everyone knows: sometimes life gets in the way. I'm involved in a lot of projects and events, both personal and at work, so perhaps I can extract a few stories or lessons to share out of those pools. Stay tuned, as I am still here...

Live Tile support

Posted by eXonyte at 11:08 AM

After posting the previous article, I decided to make some tweaks and improvements to the Realm. Aside from updating the MODX backend, I've also added Live Tile support. I realize that the majority of people will never use such a feature, but as someone who is heavily invested in current Microsoft platforms I found it to be an interesting exercise.

The start of something new

Posted by eXonyte at 12:51 AM

Tonight, the first night of 2014, is the relatively quiet but long-in-coming relaunch of the Realm. Welcome. I don't think I've ever written it out before, so here is a history lesson on how eXonyte's Realm came to be.
