Anyway, Microsoft has updated the XNA toolset again, so head on over to http://creators.xna.com/Education/GettingStarted.aspx to get the latest goodies.

Wow, I finally made an update! I've been laying low for some time now, mainly due to work and twin boys that are now almost 10 months old. But I've been getting more and more interested in getting back into XNA development. I started looking around for game engines, and found Flat Red Ball. I'll be testing it out over the next few days.

For the time being, I've turned off the comment feature on the site. This is due to the fact that the spammers have discovered them, and the CAPTCHA option in the comment system doesn't seem to work for me at this point. When I can get a chance to fix it, I will. Considering the fact that there has only been one genuine comment left, it's probably not a feature that will be missed at this point.Undecided
