Full House

I've just released GNR 33, which we recorded on Monday. Took me a while as it has been a very busy week at work. This is the first show were I've had Dave, Char and Mike on at the same time. Accordingly, there was some chaos and a lot of…

Deadfire

The other day I learned that Obsidian Entertainment is crowdfunding Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. I absolutely adore the original Pillars, so I chipped in for $80 – even though it's already massively overfunded. I can't wait to get another Pillars game! And what's even better, my pledge includes a…

Meme'd

I spent over an hour at work today trying to configure Fedora on my laptop to connect to our office VPN. I copied certs and keys, edited config files and generally tried to get ipsec and strongswan to play nice. I finally figured out that, against what the documentation, all…

People

"People, what a bunch of bastards", Roy famously said on The I.T. Crowd. He's right, of course. And techy people are the worst. Case in point: I came across this little gem of a story at work today. Russian guy murders his friend over argument about which graphics card…

Reading List Updated

Spent a few hours updating my reading list with all the books I have read since 2011. I then filled my to-read pile with all the books I had on the list of stuff I wanted to get to at some point. I also tweaked the layout a bit, inspired…

A Newsletter?

Inspired by Char, I've set up a newsletter for this blog using TinyLetter. You might ask why a newsletter? Why now? And indeed, I've never created something like this before. Considering the fact that everyone seems to hate email right now, it seems anachronistic. And that's exactly what I like…

Frame Shift

If you look at the Sixgun TV YouTube channel, you'll notice that I haven't done much with it in the last couple of years. I'm planning to change that this year. I mean it; I even bought a video editor. Dave will be happy to hear that it isn't filthy…

Onesie Central

I've released the 32nd episode of Geek News Radio today. Dave (dressed in a custom-made fox onesie) and me (dressed in a home-made Elite Dangerous flight suit) talked about the second season of The Expanse and about Babylon's Ashes. We also discussed the Elite Dangerous RPG and XCOM 2. Yeah,…

Badreads

I've been using Goodreads for years. It's been my primary way to track and remember what I've read. Today, I discovered that they delete reviews. Well, to be more precise, I think they deleted a book I entered into their system in favour of another entry of the same book.…

Coming Home to Hutton

Since joining the Hutton Orbital Truckers in December, it's been on my to-do list to undertake the legendary journey to Hutton Orbital myself. As you can imagine, this is a bit of a rite of passage and a point of pride for the Hutton Truckers and even some of the…
