New Project, Big Updates, and a Trip to Japan! 

Where to start?

Well. Corsair Effects Engine has some big updates, and even bigger updates coming in the near future, but I'm not going to delve into those now. You can head to the project page to see that stuff!

I've started a new project, currently called Taskbar Tools. In short, it currently allows you to modify the appearance of the Taskbar in Windows 10. You can make it transparent, blurred, solid, and any colour you want. It will eventually be expanded to allow pinned icon profiles, and modifications to the Action Center, Start Menu, and more. You can see some more details on the new project page.

Last but not least, I'm going to Japan! Well, specifically, my wife and I are. We'll be gone for two weeks in February, so you can expect it to be a fairly quiet month from me. I'd love to say I'll do work on CEE while I'm there, but we all know there's no way that'll happen. Japan is way too rad for me not to give it all of my attention!

As always, thanks everyone for your support! It means the world to both of us to see so many people love the work we put into these projects. I might be the sole programmer for CEE, but my wife puts in tons of QA time, and she puts up with me when I'm in my "moods", as she calls them, when I'm focused on writing and optimizing new algorithms.

Love you all!

We Got Married! 

WOO! We finally sealed the deal! The wedding was absolutely phenomenal. The venue was top-notch, our vendors all rocked, all our guests had a blast, and most importantly of all, we had the best day of our lives!

A lot of you have been asking me about photos. Unfortunately, the professional photographers took a few thousand photos, so it'll take a few weeks before we get them all back. Once we get them, I'll post a few here for you guys to see!

As for CEE, I'll be starting to get my way back into it. I think I have an MM800 on the way, so I'll get on reverse-engineering it once I receive it. I've got a few bugs I need to fix, and a few other improvements to make (better logging), and then I'll start getting to work on new stuff such as the static key lighting support.

I've got a platform migration going on at work, so I'll be fairly busy with that, too. Plus, Christmas is coming. I want to say I'll have at least all of the logging, bugs, and stability issues worked out by then, but I can't promise!

As always, Thank you for your support! I love you guys!

Website Updates! 

Hey, everyone!

I've updated my website to actually have a full database back-end instead of just looking like it has one. For you, this means that posts will now be dated, dynamically populated, and paginated. For me, this means that I don't have to manually edit a bunch of .php files to make it look like I've posted something new!

I still have some work to do on the site, but if you encounter any errors, please feel free to email me using the link in the footer!

Planning a Wedding is Hard! 

As many of you who follow my social feeds have likely heard, I'm currently planning my wedding! It's a lot of work, combined with my job and the extra hours I put in from time to time to make some extra cash, I've been left with little time to work on CEE. I am still doing what I can, though. Currently I am working on big pieces, so every release will contain some rather large updates, as opposed to the small, more regular updates everyone is likely used to.

There will be some great new features coming once things start to slow down a bit! Thank all of you for being so patient and encouraging!
