This year was a pretty tumultuous one in my life. The first half of it for me was largely unmemorable and forgotten except for one major event: I left my […]
Every since I saw Soylent, I was interested in meal replacement systems, but there never seemed to be a decent solution in the UK for me to try. Primarily for […]
Kickstarter for many seems to be a mixed bag, but so far I’ve had fairly good luck with it. Out of all the projects I’ve backed, including ones that have not yet finished funding, a little over 50% have delivered me things.
Of the ones that haven’t delivered yet, nearly all of them haven’t yet reached their estimated delivery dates or even finished their kickstarter campaigns yet. In fact, only about 8 or so have passed their deadlines and of those, only about 2 or 3 have basically disappeared with the money and never delivered anything and cut all communications with anyone.
On the whole, I’ve had a pretty good run, I’d say. ∞
Another blog post in which I complain about an aspect of my life but make no effort to resolve it. Indulge me in some melodramatic musing and self-indulgent whining because […]

So this morning I couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed, but I was bored, so what did I do?
I used my phone to ssh into my media pc. From there I installed x11vnc on the machine. Then I installed a VNC client on my phone. Then I used vnc to connect to the media pc so I could reconfigure some GUI software to provide a remote control interface. Then I installed a remote control app for my phone for the software, used it set up some tasks I wanted done in the background, then I streamed a movie from the media pc to VLC on my phone.
A lot of work so I can lay in bed and do nothing 🙂
As part of my drive to not be a mopey “I deserve nothing” bastard, I figured I’d highlight some of the things I’ve directly been involved in. By directly involved, […]
I suffer terribly from imposter syndrome. Well, by my inexpert self-diagnosis anyway. I feel like a fraud most of the time and find it hard to ever accept praise or […]
I do not deal well with stress. I’m generally a pretty chilled out person, due to a combination of overwhelming cynicism, apathy and lack of basic, human empathy. Okay, that […]
Introspection So much for wanting to write more regularly on here. I’m generally quite a boring person who has nothing going on in their lives beyond going to work, working […]
