; Hello World

Sorry this is slightly later than usual.
I spent hours, today, working on the AGameAWeek database.
In order to get everything up to date, content wise, I've decided to head right the way back to the very beginning and fix up all the links and images and everything, so that it all links properly together, and also does game-link type things whenever I'm blogging about specific games.
In all, it's going to be a massive overhaul of the database, and it's something I'm having to do manually, as there's no easy way around it.
Today, I made the start, and began from ?ID=1.
Hours later, I found myself at ?ID=100, and figured that was probably more than enough work for the day.

Along the way, I changed old iFrame-based Youtube HTML into BBCode Youtube links, removed tons of content that I'd posted to WordPress using Table html, deleted SO MANY links to RetroRemakes that simply no longer exist, and I fixed up loads of old Wed.Workshop links.
I also took some time to edit SoCoder's script a little so that some of the old Wed.Workshop links are once again working, although there's about 800 different link styles that I made for that thing! Good greif, the old site was a mess!!!

Anyhoo, that's pretty much all I got done, today, and I'm only up to ID=100.
The blog currently goes all the way up to nearly 5,500 pages of content, all of which will need just as much attention and tweaking.
It's certainly not going to be a quick trek to fix up the site, but it has to be done in order for the new Wiki site to properly link pages to games, and vice versa.

... Really not sure why I started doing this!!!
Bah, humbug!
