This month, on the 29th of april, it’s an entire year since the TMU Blog officially closed. 530 posts, almost 250 000 visits and four and a half years since the start.

To celebrate that, I’m opening up the old Tracks I and Tracks II pages again – that’s 147 TMX tracks (from November 2006 to November 2007) rated and listed for you to download and enjoy πŸ˜€


Final Post

April 29, 2009

I know a lot of you have been waiting for this. And now it’s here: the final post!

The TMU Blog was active for two years, and believe me, it was both fun and demanding at the same time. 529 posts (including this one), 3 213 comments,Β 220 653 hits and countless hours of writing, editing, and, from your perspective, reading.

It’s sad to say goodbye, but as most of you know, it doesn’t really end here. As a result of the TMU Blog, there’s now the TMX Blog – same thing, different (and bigger) package. And, the TMU Blog is still here. With 529 posts there’s a lot to check out, and as those of you who have been around for a longer time know, there are some great articles to read. Take for example our Media Tracker Camera Clips Tutorial, written by Alactor – it’s the single most visited article in the entire blog, withΒ 4 197 page views.

Last but not least, I’d like to thank all of those who contributed with materials over the two years, and all of you who read and commented on the articles. Without you, the blog wouldn’t exist. And thanks to MrA who made it big by “advertising” it on TMX back when the blog started, and who let me continue without asking me to help out on TMX instead.

See you around!


An Exciting Future

January 6, 2009

Hi everyone! Jozii here πŸ˜€

A few days ago Alcator informed me that he won’t be able to handle the blog the way he’d like to. A shame really, and I just have to thank Alcator for the time he did spend on the blog the past few months πŸ˜€ If it wasn’t for him the blog would probably have been closed by now.

So I spent some time trying to figure out what to do. Should I look for someone else willing to take it over? Should I go back to blogging myself? The first would probably only work out for a short period, and the latter is out of the question. But then I had an idea!

I’m not going to reveal what it is just yet (as nothing is certain just yet)Β πŸ˜› However, I wanted to give you a heads up that the blog will – if everything goes as planned –Β go through a major makeover in the coming time. I don’t know how long it will take – days, weeks or maybe just a few hours – but gradually I’ll be doing some changes and soon enough you will understand what it’s all about πŸ˜‰ Just keep visiting and you’ll be the first to know!

Also, all this means that I’m back in charge, even if I don’t plan to do much blogging myself. I believe strongly in this secret idea and think the blog will see a healthy growth in the near future.

I’ll keep you posted πŸ˜‰ In the mean time, feel free to guess what exactly it is I’m planning to do πŸ˜€

Ok, some of you already did have the Christmas Eve supper, some might have already looked under the Christmas tree, and if not, you will do so in the hours to come. So, feel free to brag, share or complain about the presents (or “absents”) that you got. Let’s see who got the most original present πŸ™‚

Vacation announcement

November 13, 2008

Hello, folks!

From Saturday (November 15th) till next Wednesday (November 19th), I’ll be on a vacation, which may mean I won’t be able to cover the final round of StarContest as much as I would like (although I will try).

On another note, my son is now 13 months old and growing nicely πŸ™‚
