List of things to do

Posted on September 13, 2018  in My Life

I had to work last weekend, so my boss graciously gave me a four day weekend. So now I have to find something interesting to do with my time.

  • D&D Game: We are entering a new chapter in the current campaign, the stuff that was previously been happening has been cleaned up, with just a couple of dangling plot lines to be resolved later. I need to find something to run this Saturday, something for a 10th level party of 6 characters.
  • Computer Stuff: For some reason the GPU pass through on my system has quit working properly, so my Windows 10 virtual machine is being bitchy. So I need to sit down and figure out which update broke it and how to fix it.
  • Retro Computer Stuff: The Sinclair 1000 is still not working properly. I know what the problem is, the video output looks like a composite video connector, but its output is not composite. There is a fairly simple fix for it that requires me to find a couple of resisters and solder them into place.
  • Reading: I bought Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward, I suspect this is going to fairly depressing, but my plan is to just power through it.
  • Writing: I try to write everyday, but I have been falling down on that lately, so I want to get three or four thousands words written this weekend.
