Latest somethingdark news

Developing a website such as SDk and the magazine it hosts takes time. That's why we think contributors and others interested in what we are doing deserve to be kept informed on our progress. This page has been designed to do exactly that: to keep you up-to-date as to where we are. We're pleased to have you with us.

Tues 17 Mar, 2009.

Chris, website developer extraordinaire, took pity on Daryl and undertook a sub-project to make life easier in building profiles for SDk contributors. Voila! After several days' work, behold the SDk profile Toolkit: a form-structured online page for contributors to enter their profile information in a standard format that will be much easier for Daryl to collate (and easier to reformat and edit where necessary).

We are committed to SDk as a long-term project, and since we are not a big publishing enterprise (there are still only the two of us), we need to put technology to good use in making it more manageable for us to maintain consistent, high-quality results in everything we do with SDk. As we develop further and continue to publish more issues of the magazine, we anticipate the workload of just building contributor profiles will, alone, become almost a full-time job; thus, we've done something about profile management now rather than leaving it for later.
