Welcome to the first post on the UESP blog. A place where I, and possibly other UESP editors or Elder Scrolls fans, can talk about what is on our minds. I tend to be a "jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none" type so my desired blogging topics cover an equally wide range:

  • UESP -- Running the UESP site has definitely been a trial by fire so I'll try to pass on all tips and knowledge I've accumulated along the way for what they may be worth.
  • Gaming -- I play a variety of games, not just Elder Scrolls titles (shocking, I know...), so expect discussion about what I'm playing as well a little bit about game development and theory. For all the games I've played I must be an expert, right?
  • Programming -- I have programmed for both fun and work most of life so would like to discuss both the practice and theory of the topic.
  • Rants -- Reading other blogs it seems one of their main purpose is to provide an outlet for the author to rant about things. I can only try to not disappoint in this regard.
  • Science -- Both my education and work history have been science oriented and I've had a love of science since elementary school.
  • Hobbies -- I have many minor hobbies, such as wood/metal working and ultimate frisbee, I may bring up occasionally depending on if I actually find the time to do any of them.

Besides all those wonderful topics if I do manage to regularly update the blog it gives me a chance to practice my poorly neglected writing skills. Since UESP moved to a Wiki based site (some 3 years ago now) I haven't had time, or really the need, to write any actual content or articles. The editors and contributors to the Wiki have far surpassed anything I had originally thought of. I've been writing lots of code and shell scripts, which I don't mind, but it feels good to be able to just writing 'stuff' again.

Great job with this! I feel the UESP is slowly becoming the supreme place for the Elder Scrolls (if it hasn’t alread). Thanks for the blog!

Good work on the blog. Looking forward to hearing from fellow UESP users & staff. I’ve been a faithful memeber of the forums and Wiki now for a while.
