My new blog. Coming soon. Welcome to my new blog/web site. Guess it's a little of both. Or neither. I thought I would work on some content before going live and even then gradually publish entries. In addition to everything else I'm also trying to learn WordPress.
The past two or three months I've felt like I was locked into week-after-week pattern. Going to work coming home, every day exactly the same with the most minimum of variation. And actually the weekends were largely the same: just a repeat every single time. I had been committed to finishing two TV shows (Starget … Continue reading Severely Rutted (Meta #7)

Let me stop here … Continue reading Extracting drivers from Windows
I came up in the idea in 2014. And it's 2020. I'm still sort of working on it. Or thinking about working on it. That's the same, right? The form this cab would take and the plans around it have shifted and adapted over the past years. I assumed it would be much simpler than … Continue reading The Arcade Cab Project (part 1)
