Mac Source Ports

On the one in a million chance that there’s someone out there who still reads my blog, or is still subscribed to the RSS feed despite me not posting in *checks notes* years, and does not look at the front page, here’s a post to point my latest venture: Mac Source Ports.

The short version is I’m using it to post signed and notarized app bundle builds of video game source ports for the Mac to run on Intel and Apple Silicon processors.

The long version is here.

So that’s the first reason I’m making this post.

The second reason is: I’m actually going to use the categories on this site to categorize thing. And by categories I mean category: one category for Mac Source Ports posts. I’m going to link to it from the main Mac Source Page.

I figure a blog to say what I’m working on and where I’m at with things would be relevant.

Why not just put that on I guess I could, but for right now I’ve got that thing hosted somewhere it would be nontrivial to say “and run a PHP site in this subdirectory, oh and can you even do databases?”

Right now is entirely custom code. I don’t know how long term feasible that is or how long before I’ll need to suck it up and move to a proper CMS, but for now it works and I can do anything I want with it, although it’s a touch on the tedious side.

Anyway, I’ve tried using this as a platform to put my thoughts out there and I’ve kinda fallen off of that, then I tried using this as a platform for my professional works and, well that kinda fell off too. So either this latest attempt at using my blog will really, no really, prove to be useful, or I’ll fall off of it, too. We’ll see.
