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.

Clicky...

Posted 12-28-2012 at 08:45 AM by Xyon (Rambling Sysadmin)

This post was typed on my new Das Ultimate S keyboard (with the clicky MX Blue switches for tactiles) which I got for the festivity-day holidays. It's a very nice looking keyboard and it'll be coming to work with me when I go back in the new year.

Christmas itself was an interesting day, with the kids truly captivated by their gifts and the baby, for whom it was the first time, was honestly blown away by the magic of it all.

I hate Christmas. I really do. But since...

Newsworthy

So apparently there's a sporting event of some sort happening in this country at the moment. Oh, yes, it's the Olympics.

For a start, they're nowhere near me. Might as well be France hosting them as Great Britain. I guess this theory that London == The United Kingdom pervades into the outer world from our own nation's capitol; I thought at first it was a foreign thing, but it's not. Oh well. I'm not complaining; I live 4-6 hours away from London traffic and such depending, and if...

Of code and promises...

Posted 08-05-2012 at 01:31 PM by Xyon (Rambling Sysadmin)

Last night while I couldn't sleep, I laid in bed listening to my daughter and partner sleep (sounds to horrify a nation, mostly) and contemplated the code, form, and eventually scope of XRRR, and its future, inevitably.

Developing that addon has been a blast, and I'm not planning to stop, which is the first point I'll make since the above paragraph had an ominous twist to it. I'm more reconsidering how it'll be finished, and the path I took when I first began writing the code....

Under no circumstances

An interesting email hit my many inboxes today while working; well, actually several interesting, fifteen mundane, and three spam. But one in particular caught my eye, from our installations manager.

I currently work, in case you don't know, for my dad's solar PV panel installation company - so that kind of installation. He also manages stock and warehouses, and at any given moment he's probably the busiest person in or out of the office. We get on well.

Addiction.

Posted 07-28-2012 at 10:25 PM by Xyon (Rambling Sysadmin)

Oh help, I've become addicted to minecraft yet again.

It started out this time as a simple peek at the 1.3 snapshot preview thing doing the rounds - broke out the usual minecraft starting instincts, built some shelter, dug a mine, tested the new stuff, nicely nicely.

Then I got to wondering about the status of some of those old mods I used to use. 1.2.5, the last stable version, has been out for a little while now (though 1.3 is, from the looks of it, about to royally...
