Down the Youtube hole

Posted on September 15, 2018  in My Life

I went down a Youtube hole tonight, I did not even post a quarter of the videos I watched. I guess I must be feeling a bit nostalgic tonight, but it was fun. Maybe next Friday night I will do this again and see where it goes, maybe take some requests or do a theme.

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.

Summer is over

Posted on September 3, 2018  in My Life

Well Labor Day is here, this is generally a very depressing day for me. Memorial Day is the beginning of summer and I am always optimistic and hopeful. I mean what is not to love about summer, warm weather, cool water and scantily clad women. Unfortunately by the time Labor Day rolls around I find I really have done nothing with my summer. Heading into Fall and Winter, I really don’t have much to look forward to, Oh Well, maybe next year.

Sad Day in History

Posted on August 17, 2018  in My Life

Today I was sitting a room full of Millennials, now normally I don’t rail on  Millennials, they do have a rough life ahead of them and it is pretty much our fault. However, what occurred to me is, I was the coolest person in that room. Seriously, I am D&D nerd, I was never cool by any standard, but there I was and there was not a hip person in that room besides me. This is the real reason Millennials are pissed off, they are the first generation that has parents cooler than them and worse, their grandparents are cooler than them too. The Baby Boomers came of age in the 60’s, the era when the youth culture was born and rebelled against its masters, GenX came of age in the 80’s, the era the youth culture came into its own and dominated virtually every facet of life. The Millennials were born into a world that was already cool, everything they can think of has already been done, Recreational sex, been done, recreational drug use, yep, Rock and Roll, Oh yes, been done big. This is why “Retro” is a thing to day, Millennials simply have no where to go.

The long hot summer ahead

Posted on May 26, 2018  in My Life

It is the beginning of Memorial Day weekend. This is always a mixed bag for me. On the one hand summer is here, my favorite time of the year. Hot weather, swimming, camping, long weekends, scantily clad women, smoking pot and fucking on the beach, Whats not to love. On the other hand, I am probably not going to get to enjoy any of that stuff, I will blink and it will be Labor Day. Sigh!, I hate my life.

10 PRINT “HELLO WORLD”

Posted on May 6, 2018  in My Life

No, my old blog did not crash and burn, I took it down. There were several reason why I did that, chief among them was it had a ton of problems stemming from the fact that it started out 10 years ago on hosted web space and has since moved 4 or 5 times. It was just tiresome maintaining all the outdated software and plugging holes every time I did manage to upgrade something. So I am starting out completely fresh, a clean install of LAMP Ubuntu 18.04 Server, I am not importing anything from the old server, it is now retired. There were other reasons why I shut it down and I may go into those later, but for now, this is what it is.
