I've decided to live on the edge and designate Friday as "shirt untucked" day.
Published a new post, then panicked at broken posts page. An irrational panic because I’m sure nobody reads my blog. But still. Wasted a lot of time trying to fix the code. Clueless. Eventually “fixed” the problem by rolling back to an older Hugo version. Guess I’m stuck on 0.32 now.
I've started reading Leviathan Wakes - the highly-recommended first book of The Expanse series. Heard the TV show is good too, but the SyFy channel may be shopping it around? Netflix buy it please!
Ethics aside, I love the concept of Google Duplex. There is so much friction in making a phone call compared to the ease of online booking.
This is a first - totally forgot the Google I/O keynote was today!
Pop-culture highlights from the past week - Avengers Infinity War and Horizon Zero Dawn. Both get 👍 👍 👍
For video editing, I'm finding Camtasia so much easier to use than Lightworks for my purposes.
Had a good day yesterday documenting an ROV water test.
Finally got a post out for 2018 - as promised, the third instalment of my short story.
My thirst for all things Time Travel has led me to the Spanish show "El ministerio del tiempo". The first episode really hooks you in by the end. Surprisingly brisk, and...funny?
The pressing question of the day is: Am I truly recovering from my mysterious illness, or is it the Tylenol/Advil combo?
Fallout 4... damn. Now that I’ve found my son, I’m rethinking my allegiance. If I don’t join the Institute then what’s the point of the whole game.
No blog post for February. But I'm working on the next chapter of my short story, hopefully for March.
And in other news, I've decided to throw my support behind the Railroad in Fallout 4.
Saw a couple of good movies on the weekend. Spiderman Homecoming was finally a Spiderman reboot done right. Everest prompted me to add "Into Thin Air" to my reading list.
Stayed at Harrison Hot Springs on the weekend and went skiing at Sasquatch Resort. Was a good break. Snowy landscapes were just stunning.
Well, well, well. Public Mobile backed down after thousands of complaints were submitted to the CCTS. But in their "apology" letter, they say this: "While all good things must come to an end at some point – that point is not today." A veiled threat to be sure. I'll have to think about whether to stick with PM cause the whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Public Mobile just texted me to say they are raising my cell phone bill by $20 a month. WTF 😡
On the book side of things, I've started the third Mistborn novel -
The Hero of Ages. It is predictably awesome.
I'm enjoying Altered Carbon - my wife's cousin worked on it (it was filmed in Vancouver). The plot's a bit muddy but the visuals are A+
