It’s been about six months since I’ve worked on FyreVM-Web and the infrastructure for ifpress.com. After the most recent developments with Vorple and the clear interest from the community for its progress, I paused to re-evaluate where I spend my time. I think at this point I plan to spend more time on writing than on tool development. This means the status of my tools is going to remain dormant until some nebulous future date.

As everyone knows, platform development is hard and the IF community is somewhat mercurial about shared interests. I tried to enlist a couple of people in helping on the UI side of things where FyreVM is concerned and they flatly replied (paraphrased), “Why should I spend time on this when Vorple is more mature.” OR “I don’t have any extra time for this.”

So at the moment, FyreVM-Web is going to the dust-bin…until I find some future fuel for it or if it gains interest from other capable front-end developers and designers.

On to writing, IF and other things. Cheers.
