What happens when I'm given a keyboard and literally any spare time at all to write.

Contains my own personal opinions, not those of the sites I represent unless stated otherwise. Literally no rights reserved, except for the fiction category, which you can share provided my name stays on it as author. Unless you totally rewrite something inspired by my work, which would be downright awesome and I'd be wonderfully happy about that.

The Grind, v2.0

Posted 07-27-2012 at 05:41 PM by Xyon (Rambling Sysadmin)

So many things change about your life when you first have kids it's impossible to keep track of them all.

Private Panorama

Turns out my cameraphone has some more useless settings than I thought.

A little point about my phones: I have a Nokia N95, with a camera I absolutely adore, it's got a 5MP camera on there with Carl Zeiss optics and all sorts of junk. However, the screen's knackered on it, and that makes taking pictures with it difficult.

... who occasionally wields a camera phone.

I have blogs elsewhere that I never post in, and this might well become one in time, but there are two or three reasons I'm bothering with this:

I'm here a lot. Like, daily. And since I'm forum staff and all that jazz, I have certain ties to this place which will keep me coming here for at least the near future.
