Random Ass Update

Even though you wouldn’t be able to discern as much from this blog, I’ve been busy as hell. My career is sapping every spare minute from me, and any time I get that isn’t dedicated to my career I typically spend wasting on brain-dead pursuits that numb me from the frantic ridiculousness that is my gainful employment. There are days when I wish my employer might find my blog and fire me ‘Damore-style’. Selfish notion, I realize, but I’m also aware that it isn’t likely. I will get no respite from the relentless march. I’ve been picking on an italian...

Essential PragmataPro v1.1

It looks like Fabrizio Schiavi accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment. Neato. I’ve been wanting an updated version of PragmataPro. The pirates simply haven’t been keeping up. So I happened to have a few bucks laying around in Bitcoin, spun up some fake information, signed up to his website with a disposable email account, and bought his font.

Also, if you’d like to pitch in to buy the whole series so that I can post it here, hit me up. Throw me some BTC. I’ll deliver.

In case you really do want to contribute to me obtaining and distributing ‘Regular PragmataPro’, here are a few places to shekel me:

What the Hell

This is really just a sort of a quick blurb about how I still exist. Nothing really else to say at the moment. Not sure when I’ll update again or what my update will consist of. I’m strongly considering gutting this space for something else. Not sure what. There are a few things I’ll continue to host in perpetuity, though. At least, I fully intend to host until the statute of limitations is long past. Fucking lame skids.

I’m sure that when I get a minute I’m also going to wax poetic about life in general and about successes, lessons learned, things I’m striving for, and the happinesses in my life. I just can’t make any promises at the moment.

This is turning into a more long-winded update than I had originally intended. That’s okay I guess.

Anyways, you can watch this space or not. Regardless of what you do or even regardless of the upcoming net neutrality bullshit, I’m not going to be silenced. Not permanently. I might post infrequently, but my voice will always be heard.

Peace, bitches.

Addendum: I think I know what I’ll blog about next, as far as tech material. I’ll toss up my current irssi setup in it’s entirety, using AWL and a few other scripts.

Mother of God

I just have one thing to say:

Being on the road sucks.

That’s really all, at the moment. Maybe, if life slows down some, I can get a few more words out there. I’ve learned a hell of a lot in the last month or two of being a road warrior. Not only professionally, but in adapting my life to being a remote one.

Needless to say, OpenVPN has become my friend. I’ve learned quite a bit about making my life easier in all respects by using it. Especially when it comes to maintaining a connection to my family and my home life despite my not being home.

I just hope when I’m done out West, I won’t need this information ever again.

Motivation

I’m having a hell of a time maintaining my motivation. I’m learning new things, I’m honing old skills and developing new ones, I’m restructuring my entire “professional” existence. I’m doing big things, small things, all the things.

I dunno, I’m just petering out. I’ve been working 60+ hours for a few weeks now, and I’m burned out quite severely. I need a beer and a day with zero obligations. I need to sleep more than six hours. I know all of what I need. I’m also painfully aware of how scarce my needs really are. Life doesn’t work that way. It’s not so simple.

Well, I better get back to what I was doing. I just needed to take a minute to do something for myself instead of for others. Even if only for a minute, I had to take it.

Crap.
