Spent quite a bit of time, yesterday, tweaking elements of the Music Player.

All the things that I've done,
Whilst rebuilding the blog.
Yet so many forgotten,
That are lost in the fog.

So much for having a nice stroll through the jungle.
Platdude's been set upon by an evil raptor.

Let's say there's 1,024 teams. Which there aren't, but let's imagine..

And let's say each team has 50 players.. Which it doesn't, but let's go crazy, here.

Each player has a name (128 bytes?) and then... say... 256 x 32-bit integer stats (256*4 bytes)
256 x 32-bit integers per player should be more than enough for incredibly detailed performance stats, as well as settings for "Create a character" type facial/body type stuff.

So, we're asking for 1024 bytes + 128 bytes for the name, which comes to 1,152 bytes.
(Note, although player performance stats might change over time, typically players don't change their names or facial features during the course of a season, but.. Let's assume those are in the save file, anyway, because the developers can't be bothered to check those stats which should already be in the ROM file!!)

1,152 bytes * 50 players = 57,600 bytes per team.
Multiply that by 1,024 teams = 58,982,400 bytes, or 56.25 Megabytes

Where the hell are they getting 5Gb save files from!?!?!?

As the site comes together,
The gaps all appear.
With luck I'll have filled them
By this time next year.

Platdude is visiting his old friends.
But can he remember which one's which?

I didn't expect to code it all,
But the comment section's in.
Now to sit and watch for spam,
And throw it in the bin.

Platdude's helping to do some checks on some safety equipment.
He'll be much happier once the company pays for some mechanical equipment to do these tests

So, I guess that's the bulk of the new site working.

It looks like it's done,
But the job's incomplete.
I need to keep working,
On the new AGameAWeek.

Platdude's close to the end.
You can do it, Platdude. Don't rush!

Comments are currently broken.
I can't merge the old Game Archive comments with the old Blog comments, because.. well, Disqus doesn't do that. Hmmm.

And with the push of a button, WordPress is gone.
AGameAWeek is no longer held on a WordPress script, and now runs on a self-written "AGameAWeek" script.
Blog, Games, Pixelart, Music and Poetry are all part of the new single script, although there are occasional trips to other scripts for things like the Music Player and the Pixelart Calendar generator.

Platdude's sick of leaping all the time.
He's found a quick way to avoid rolling obstacles.

Add another element,
Do a dry run.
All seems to work.
Soon I'll be done.

A few more small tweaks,
And the task is complete.
The new site is ready,
But took more than a week!
