In 2011 I finished Skyrim totalling about 80 hours. Although that’s quite a while ago, the game disc has remained on the front row of my shelf. I have fond memories of exploring the underground mushroom caverns of Blackreach, wondering where all the dwarves went as I ransacked their millennia standing ruins and becoming the arch mage of Winterhold was much more satisfying than saving the world of Alduin, the world eater dragon. It was such a well done game, it never left my mind. Continue reading ‘Returning to Skyrim on PC from the PS3’
Do you ever wonder what it is that you’re doing sometimes? To what end? Continue reading ‘The world is like a melon?’
I’ve gone through the most atrocious storms and belting rain. My bike gripped like a champion but despite this, I take it easy. This morning I was being mindful of the inclement weather but slipped anyway. It was very scary.
I’ve had rear slips to Bondi with the steel connectors on the road, huge splash waves from cars in the pissing rain and been blown about by mighty gusts on bridges. Of course I slip up on my daily commute on a sleepy road.

With the developments at work, I’ve taken to electronic repair as a hobby. I had collected (hoarded really) things that broke but were seemingly in excellent condition. After getting the right tools to soldier, bend, nip and tuck, I sat down like a kid at Christmas and dived in. I managed to fix it all. I didn’t really know what I was doing nor how any of it really worked with how unique the boards can be, but I decided to try any way. I basically refurbished every connector by taking it out, replacing it or treating it and then reconnecting it. This is an elaborate, physical counterpart to turning off and on again. It works!
I dream of having one of those garages with every instrument and a large bench top. I’d work my way up reconnecting bigger and bigger things. It’s fascinating tracing the lines with your eyes and trying to work out how it all talks to each other. Board logic is basically drawn pseudocode! I’d have one of those magnifying glasses on an adjustable arm and a little stool to sit on. One day I’ll make it. Until then, I feel perfectly happy at my desk and crudely using what I have. :)
