This is my website. It’s mostly about topics related to my hobbies, such as content creation on computers (games, music, sound effects, etc) and that sort of thing, but I also enjoy writing itself, so you’ll find posts about a variety of topics. The menu breaks the content down for you, as does the post archive.
My projects for 2018:
I’m designing a self contained electronics and programming “command center” that I think would be a really fun way for kids to learn by playing with that stuff. Sure, you can already fill your desk with everything imaginable, but there is just something fun about retro-style all in one computers! I’ll proabably never be able to actually make it though, because parts are too expensive… Anyway, as always I am puttering with music creation using Sunvox, but I’ve also decided to go back 20 years to 1998 and create some music using Impulse Tracker on my Pentium 233MXX system. As far as playing games, I really don’t play much of anything anymore, which means that I play Guild Wars 2 pretty much exclusively.

Just playing with my kids before they grow up so much they don’t want to play anymore. I can’t believe how big they already are!

At some point in my old age I realized that I’ve been blessed by the efforts of literally millions of people around the world; Through the division of labor and the pursuit of happiness (or tragically toiling in deplorable working conditions just to survive – a reality that should never be, but more-so never be ignored), I’ve had access to wonders unimaginable. There are so many people I would thank if I could. I think about this every time I eat a banana. Bananas don’t even grow in Canada. Heck, “bananas” aren’t even from a natural plant! How many people did it take to allow me to pick up that banana and eat it?
Despite turmoil and so much grief, it warms my heart that so many people around our world find the strength to rise above and make our world the amazing place it has become.
