For the first time in years I felt unwell enough to be called “sick”. In this state I can only function as a mattress warmer and stay in bed for most of the day. I ignored the lingering guilt by binge watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Although I watched the 80s cartoon growing up I hesitate to consider myself a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I like Ninjas but could care less about Teenagers, Mutants and Turtles. I do, however, love video games and the old NES/Famicom era fills me with nostalgia and memories of sitting on the floor… Continue reading Learning to appreciate TMNT on the NES/Famicom
I’d always said I was not a hardware guy, that I preferred working with applications leaving someone else with the responsibility for the machines that ran them.

I look fondly upon my Zenbook because we… Continue reading And now the hero may rest

And we all know how much WordPress has changed lately from pushing Gutenberg to (finally) updating jQuery. With this (soft) relaunch itΓÇÖs out with the Classic Editor… Continue reading 4 years onΓÇª
Searching for activities that Rejuvenate me.
