We’re back

I should leave a quick note to acknowledge that yes, the blog is back. I don’t have time right now to write anything more substantial than that. I managed to kill another motherboard. Somehow. I’m a little bit annoyed that this motherboard wasn’t a crappy old one I got for free. It was supposed to be driving my home theatre PC, one I got around to setting that up. I’ll have to somehow work that set-back into the plans.

I mentioned over on my livejournal during the downtime that I have a whole bunch of things queued up to write about. Still haven’t found the time to write about them. But here’s the list anyway:

  • My new old stereo (in short, it’s awesome).
  • My back (I have a lot of tension, apparently).
  • The gym (I’m actually going).
  • Mould (My bedroom window got kinda mouldy).
  • Home renovation work (I may be getting a little ahead of myself…).
  • The Doctor Who RPG (Anybody want to play?).
  • Regular gaming (it’s back! And it starts today).
  • Another stupid Facebook post (I probably shouldn’t bother).
  • My new laptop (I got it! Despite power management weirdness, I’m very happy).
  • Torchwood (I should watch the first episode first).
  • Nodame Cantibile (really cute anime I started watching).
  • etc.

So yes, I’m back. A real update should happen soon. Ish. Soon-ish. When I have time.

Back online

My server died. I didn’t really expect the site to be down that long. To my three (or perhaps four) readers, I apologize. I built this thing to be easy to rebuild, but I guess when you start messing around with the fatal combination of Linux hardware support and VMWare, all bets are off.

I’m still not entirely sure what I did to get it running again.

I’ve got a backlog of posts I’ve been wanting to write. Most of them likely won’t get written. First, I think I have to say something about this election thing. Then maybe I can find some fun things to write about.
