When I first came to this wiki there were so many questions I had but couldn't find the answers to. Any where. I was invigorated by the possibilities that modding would open up to me, but disheartened by my ignorance and the apparent lack of information on the subject.

This is a blog. The first ever blog that I have posted here on this wiki. The blog is a bloggy blog, but not bloggy enough until I say "blog" one more time. Okay, there you have it.
