Sorry for the absence...

Jesus, I have been gone so long it seems.  Where to begin...

In late august, I had some health problems that got pretty ridiculous.  I won't go into details, but it involved three seperate emergency room visits, a minor surgery, my introduction to the greatest drug ever (Dilauted), and culminated in me going from 0 debt to 50,000 grand in debt in the space of a month, just after my unemployment ran out.  Health wise I am recovering, though the unrelated problem of my back has gotten worse.

On top of all that, for the last 2 months the entirety of Datafortress 2020 went down.  The Main Site, the File Project, the Forums... all of it... so until I got all that sorted out, there was really no need to post anything.

Luckily however, the site is back online, including the File Project and forums, though they are still a bit sketchy, so if you need anything from them be sure to let me know via e-mail, facebook, or whatever...

Finally, it's not important enough to rate a mention on the front page of the site, but there has been a small update.  I finally got the updates to my Cyberpunk 2020 soundtracks compiled, 3 new volumes each for Neon Gutter and Wastelands, the new track list is as follows.

Not sure who really cares about this stuff, as I can't share the actual music with anyone, but it's been a fun little project for me... the covers, inserts and labels I created for the compilations are on display on the actual site. This is the music that I play, not while actually gaming, for that we use instrumentals, but in preparation for gaming, or for driving around. It's the music I draw inspiration from, or has such vivid genre appropriate imagery, that it instantly puts me in the mood and keeps me there...

I have to say, I am completely blown away by Miracle of Sound.  Some of you may be already familiar with him, as he does a lot of songs based on video games.  Recently eh created 2 songs for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game, Cyberpsychosis and City Of Night, which is where I came across his music, and was absolutely blown away. He is very talented across a wide range of genres, and a hell of a nice guy.  Check him out here: http://miracleofsound.bandcamp.com/


Also, Jesse Spurell is doing a podcast of his cyberpunk games.  It's not always strictly Cyberpunk, but it is pretty interesting. Check it out here: http://www.cyberpunksaturdays.com/

I hope to have more news and maybe an actual update to the site soon, and I will try my damnedest not to be silent for so long.
