If You Want To Live A Memorable Life...

If you want to live a memorable life, you have to be the kind of person who remembers to remember.

New Year Stuff

2017

Was meaning to include this in the New Year post earlier. Seemed like the right kind of contemplative, and unusually so for XKCD. Even with the bits of comedy. No matter: here it is now! Source here.

In other news: I got a cold. Ugh. It's been such a long time coming though it almost feels good to get it out of the way! Resting up this weekend.

Happy Pixel Day!

Happy Pixel Day!

I think this might be the first time I post about this event here at CDB.

It's an NG exclusive thing, but I'm going all out this year so why not go all the way here, too. The last few years I've barely managed to post leftover pixel art, but this year I made a post here about this game, and this art, from that game. Hopefully I've linked around to the different bits of content via the different bits of content enough at this point. :) It was a fun thing to make though, the little I contributed.

Happy Pixel Day y'all! Have fun. Play a game or something.

New Feature! Trade Arcade

Trade Arcade

My first feature of the year just dropped today. :) Finna be doing more of these I hope, but this one's been a long time coming! Check it out!

It's Yet Another Sunday...

...and it's been yet another good week!

Been working like a mofo mostly. Went to an exclusive early screening for Wreck-It Ralph 2 on Wednesday (review coming up as soon as I catch up with those - posted another twelve this week), to a fancy restaurant on Monday (Borgmästarn), played some GTA VC on Android every night and this weekend I finally got this thing done. Half a year after the last update!

It's been on my mind for some time now, but various issues kept coming in the way. I won't delve into detail on that again - already posted a massive post about that on the thread which the link above links to - if for some reason you're interested in what that's all about.

You might be interested if you're a big fan of NG and have no idea what the hexalist is. Or if you're not a big fan of NG in which case you definitely should become one, and check out the hexalist as soon as you start wracking up stats. It's the ultimate list.

In site-related news I've fixed it so that I can use shy hyphenation without WordPress interfering, via this simple filter (add to functions.php if you want to use it): add_shortcode('shy', 'my_shy_shortcode'); function my_shy_shortcode($atts) {return '­';}

...when that's in there you just need to enter [shy] in a post, and there you go! I'm plotting to use this for more similar time-saving things, like non-breaking spaces and line breaks. At least.

I added in a nifty little comment edit plugin last week too, so anyone who posts - account or no, has five minutes to fix potential comment errors... or delete their comment entirely should they very quickly regret ever posting it. Since we're GDPR compliant anyone can send in a request for such things anyway, though. JSYK. This is starting to sound like a promo post. Just want to let y'all know: things be changing around here! As in: improving!

I've also been learning how to make weapons in prisons, because why not right? You never know. And prison culture's interesting.

Next week it'll be off to Östersund for a long weekend, to visit my brother and his family, maybe have some both embarrassing and good times learning basic ski techniques I should have learned some twenty years ago like everyone else who lived where there was snow did and... well, having a good time. I'll be going by train, and back by plane, straight to work, and then off to Hungary a few days later.

Was feeling kind of stressed out a few days ago, but I''m calm right now... hope it's not one of those before-the-storm things. Travel's always a double-edged edge that way. For me, at least. It's great once you've gone somewhere, but just way too much preparation - mental and otherwise - before each trip. Surely that'll all fade away with time though? And I grew up abroad. I should be used to that life. Will be living like a globetrotter a little while there's still some winter darkness to stay distracted from (speaking of that though: we've got snow now: it's awesome), and hopefully come back more focused than ever; rich with experiences from the faraway world! Err... neighboring countries. Exciting times though.

May not have time to post next weekend but I'll see y'all around. A few more reviews should be up soon too.
