Packing up and moving to wordpress!

Posted on

Hey people, it’s been awhile since my last post.

So after a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to move my blog to wordpress. It’s sleeker, easier to manage, and is packed with features. Windows Live Spaces, while cool, is restricted compared to wordpress. I won’t be abandoning Windows completely, though. In the long run, the Skydrive uploads will be through there since I can use PowerPoint Presentations and whatnot. Text posts, however, will mostly be via wordpress.

In other notes, check out my links. You’ll notice that I’ve set up a Project COE official blog. Due to our CMS site being delayed, our staff will use this blog for their E3 updates. Be on the lookout for more updates as the days go by.

Life has been good, thank God. A bit on the busy side, though. While the attendance in my current Obstetrics and Gynecology rotation isn’t as harsh as the others, there’s a lot of studying to catch up on. Our EOP exam will be in two weeks and a half. Sadly, I haven’t started reading seriously yet. My Post-partum Hemorrhage presentation is the only big work I’ve done thus far.

As always, later days, people.

About Ahmed Mosly

A medical undergraduate and a hardcore gamer? How does that even work? Is it even possible? Evidently, yes it is. Hope your brain doesn't explode from the awesomeness. I'm indeed both of these things despite my lack of proper time management skills. The scale isn't balanced either...at times it will shift to one side more than the other. I'm happy though. So...what's my story, you ask? You won't find it the most original tale ever...but then again, all gamers start out the same. Perhaps the biggest twist in my story is that I'm from Saudi Arabia. Yes...you read that right. We do have hardcore gamers here...it's not just desert, camels, and tents as some of you may assume. Remember, assuming too much makes an ass out of you and me (ass-u-me). I've been gaming for 20 years now...ever since the NES was given to me as a birthday present when I was 5 (thanks, Mom and Dad!). Upon discovering the internet in the late 90s, the inner workings of the gaming community and industry made much more sense to me. At first, it was limited to being a fan of what I love most and reading facts from afar (a.k.a. writing Zelda fanfiction). Then in 2003, I stumbled upon Nintendo of America's official forums (Hyrule Town Square) and things started evolving from there. The community promoted me and thought that my passionate ramblings were unique. As that community grew (becoming known as Nsider eventually), I grew with it...until I met the duo of Jarrod Nichol and William Cook, two other fans who ran a column called "Iris Network" that covered rumors. They actually talked about one particular rumor I discovered back in the day. I started conversing with Jarrod more, discovering that we were both passionate about the same games (Zelda, anything from Square-Enix). Turns out that Jarrod was deeply involved in the gaming industry, and that's where I learned the basics. His passion of making his own independent site became a reality in 2004. Luckily he invited me to join the ride...and what a ride it has been! I've jumped around here in Project COE, taking part in many positions and not limiting myself to a specific task. Is there even an official title for someone like me? Either way, I'll keep on doing what I'm doing and hope for the best.
