To the many many people who stop by everyday, welcome and thank you!
To those of you who might hang around and revisit these pages I'd like to just go over a few items I'm looking at performing over the next few weeks.
Firstly, I have a big technical post about setting up Trac with Subversion, including securing it, hosting it on a virtual server and really getting you up and running with project tracking and management with Trac, from total scratch.
Secondly, I have a big of Dungeons and Dragons stuff to cover, both a bit about the official rules and the in-house rules we play with, and there will hopefully be a live stream with my niece whom is D&D crazy, and even made me a D&D based birthday card, which we will play through together.
Third, electronics, I'm probably not going to get to do the PS/2 connector project previously listed, but as the autumn winds in and and the winter comes across, I hope to get back to the DCC layout stuff, not least because I have a tonne of stuff laying around for it and two part soldered projects ready to go.
Fourth, a bit of computer history, I have a manual (just a manual) for a VAX VMS, I'd like to do some coverage of that for you all to geek out over.
Fifth and perhaps finally, gaming, I'm going to be looking back at Elite Dangerous I think, with the release and massive price tag on "No Mans Sky", I'm going to go back and see if Elite has done anything more interesting. I've also been looking at buying Squad, the successor to "project reality" and going into that. Our good friend Chaplain has invited us to play some Arma 3 time with him, and I'm playing World of Warships still. So we'll go through all of that.
Sixth, so yes, fifth was not final, programming. I'm looking at a project internal to myself, something I want to actually create, manage & sell. So we'll see how that goes, but understandably there's not a lot I can share. You will also find me touting myself for business at www.freelancer.co.uk, and as such I hope to make up some of the wads of cash we've been spending since the wife's surgery.
I'll speak to you all soon, I may start to make a mid-month post like this for you all to catch up on, but we'll see how things pan out.
In the mean time, the pony has a new home, and she has a new friend meet our Gerty and Magic once again:
