Thanks. I guess I can explain a little bit.
I actually left for a couple of months. When I did, I was mostly just running the server and the message boards, as well as programming whatever was requested.
Without going into details on the why's and hows, I can tell you that I met with Steve again during the tour last November, we discussed our visions of the site and concluded what the best way was to move ahead with vai.com. He then asked me if I wanted to do that. Which I'm doing right now.
Again without going into too much details (as it will become apparent soon anyway), we set out a 1 year plan for the development of this site, with certain features that Steve wanted. Since then, I've been maintaining the site as it is now, updating a lot of areas that needed updates, and developing those additions and changes Steve and I discussed.
We set out a year for this, because on the one hand, it's a lot, and secondly, I'm doing this pretty much in my free time (I do have another job and a life).
The good news is that it's all on track. The finish line is getting closer. As we're getting closer, more details will be revealed... (in a true authentic vai.com mystique kind of way, of course
