  • 2016 Q1 and Q2 Goals Update

    I’m a bit over a week late on this, but on the “quarter” scale that’s fine, right? Standard warning: personal post, lots of annoying details, lots of meandering, lots of parentheticals. I tend to write these things kind of freeform. You’ve been warned. Quarter 1 Summary All in all, I’m moderately happy with how Q1 […]

  • Setting up a fresh Minecraft server installation on linux

    There are instructions all over the place for this sort of thing, so I’m just putting this here for my own reference. I may update it or write new posts as things change significantly.

  • Abusing the Canvas – Lesson 2: Marquee

    Lesson 2: Keep on moving, text This article is part of a series. Part 1 and table of contents. Here’s a surprising fact, for some of you this text will scroll.

  • What I’m going to do with this site

    So, the personal development stuff is still interesting to me, but probably not interesting enough to write about. Or at least write about consistently.

  • Why Blog?

    I’m not a professional writer, I’m not a journalist, I’m not a social media expert, I’m just a regular working guy. That’s not to say I don’t plan to make the jump to Internet entreprenuer, but for now this is only going to be a weekends and evenings thing. So why write? I’m not exaclty […]
