You’d think being a Mac owner and a fan of PC video games might somehow conflict with each other — especially when said Mac is the sole platform in my house on which to play games. But, with Boot Camp, a Mac will run Windows just as well as any PC. However, Macs, and the iMac in particular, aren’t really made for gaming and don’t have top-of-the-line gaming hardware installed, so it’s often a bit of a crapshoot knowing which games they will run well. In an effort to better document how games play on the Mac, we’ve launched Mac Gaming, a site that shares the settings we’ve used to get the most out of the games we play. Will a certain game run on your Mac? Visit the site and find out.

We’ve Refreshed the Gleichen Website
September 02, 2008
We’ve updated the Gleichen website, making some design tweaks, updating the content, and putting everything on top of the wonderful ExpressionEngine content management system (CMS). Specifically, we’ve added more businesses to the directory (if your business isn’t there, let us know — listings are free), created a new Services and Utilities page, and brought back the events calendar. Also, since the site is now running on top of a CMS, community members can add news and events themselves.
Shastri Website Goes Live
July 25, 2008
Our largest project to date has just launched: the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute website. Six months in the making, the site is a complete overhaul of Shastri’s old site. Built on top of ExpressionEngine, the site features an all new design, a news section, event calendar, forums, experts database, institutional repository, newsletter archive, and tons more. On top of that, the site is available in both English and French. Many thanks to Sarah Hawkins at Shastri for being incredible to work with, to Joslin for the great design, and to Renate Preuss for adding content and bug testing.
One More for the Road… Agriteam Canada Website Goes Live
May 30, 2008
One last project before we head on our honeymoon trip to the UK….
Congratulations to Agriteam Canada, whose new website just went live. As always, it was awesome to work with Kiley Turner at Turner-Riggs, Monique Trottier at Boxcar Marketing, and Joslin Green at Player Industries. Coding websites wouldn’t be half as much fun without such great projects and people to work with.
See you all in July!
