Early History:

December 2014
Started actually coding this crazy project between Christmas and New Years. The main goals were to get practice at designing HTML5 web sites, use the latest database stuff, be creative, have 'fun', etc. My son helped me with the Loot icon artwork. All the other artwork, I have been borrowing from AQ and AQ Worlds.
July 2015
After many months of the project being set aside, I started working again on this thing. Working a few hours each weekend, and sometimes late at night. Organized the web site into clean separate game areas, and using Bootstrap to simultaneous develop for mobile and desktop.
August 2015
Having a ton of fun tweaking and testing mobile vs. desktop layouts using Bootstrap. For me, the database coding takes very little time. Most of the time is spent experimenting with HTML and CSS design. Added more game content and functionality, trying to get all the required steps in place.
Early September 2015
Applying many skills learned on this project to regular day-job projects and vice-versa. Like database and web page tricks. Working more nights and weekends to get this thing finished before Talk Like a Pirate Day. All the primary game functions are in place, tested, etc.

Last minute testing, tweaking. Added this blog Notes page. Was about to release the game... and then found big problem with the icon sizing on Firefox.
