Adding a table of contents

A quick update: a table of contents has been added to the side bar, which should help navigating the longer posts and pages.

There are more possibilities to make it better, but I prefer stability on this blog, and will only make changes in baby steps.

Curiously, I discovered an old post draft named “menus & widgets” but with no actual content. It must be some long forgotten plan to look at the widgets…

Posts and Pages

The blog seems inactive for a few months, but I was actually frequently writing stuff here. The problem was that I was creating pages rather than posts recently.

Admittedly, it is hard to organize stuff either way. And organizing things is hard in general, so I don’t blame Workpress for this. And there are probably a plugin or two that fixes this, I am just too lazy to check them out.

The season is also special in its own: it is the first time we win the league consecutively.

Football Manager 2019 Shinnik Season 12

There was no update to the game for quite a few months. There were multiple reasons, but mostly because the ongoing real world event had negatively impacted my willingness to continue playing this game. The thought that the save game involves real people who might be completely disgusted with the idea of getting hired by the team I’m controlling, or getting that additional nationality through naturalization, has put me off the game for long.

Later, I thought, perhaps exactly because the real world is full of woes, I should look at the game as a more ideal place. It isn’t reflective of the world, but it is how it should have been. Along this line of thought, then, perhaps, I should just play on.

OK, back to the game.
