So, it’s just come out of a (Jewish) new year, a time when traditionally people take stock of the previous year, and decide on new directions they’d like to take with the next. This is such a time for me, and what better time than to resurrect an old project such as this? I’ve also… Continue reading new year, new leaf… new blog?
I’ve been doing my development work in Linux for a while now, and doing that you get used to certain luxuries. One of these is the packaging system that comes installed with various Linux distros – thousands of useful applications and libraries are just a sudo apt-get install or sudo yum install away, and the… Continue reading visual studio meet SDL2, SDL2 meet visual studio…
This title could refer to two things: either this blog, which is an on-again off-again project of mine, or the current state of pop culture. On the former, life has gotten in the way and I’ve let it gather dust, and on the latter we’re talking about the current Hollywood strip-mining of comic book culture… Continue reading back to the beginning…
Hello again blog… we really have to stop doing this as I should be updating you regularly. I mean, what’s the point of paying for a fancy domain name if we’re not going to do anything with you? So I’m back after a long hiatus, the last post before which I wrote a lot about… Continue reading building glfw 3 on ubuntu 13.10 (or how i learned to stop worrying and love the cmake file)
When I was very, very little, I had a “driving simulator” that was made by Tomy… what a quick Google tells me is the Turnin’ Turbo Dashboard. I use quotation marks because well, it wasn’t a simulator as there were no microchips involved. This plastic (but non-microchip based) toy kept me enthralled for hours… Continue reading the fisher price syndrome
So, I’ve been away. That’s quite obvious, given the last post was on Boxing Day. My absence has been for a pretty good reason, though – I got a new job in Scotland, so I’ve moved up here to begin a new life and getting all that sorted has been taking its sweet time. It’s… Continue reading life on mars

Seriously, last warning! ! ! … and here we go. Okay, so I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while. Ever since… Continue reading [spoiler] is dead… long live the superior spider-man!
So here’s what I’m planning to do over Christmas: Although I don’t think there are Daleks in the Doctor Who Christmas special. But yeah, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without sitting down on Christmas Day with the family to watch Doctor Who. Also, on the 26th I’m going to write a big blog post about Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Avenging… Continue reading xmas plans
You know, if there’s one thing that Superior Spider-Man has done, it’s cause an almighty outpouring of butthurt among Spider-Man fans, and the book isn’t even out yet. I had decided I was going to wait until Christmas Day to talk about it here… but I feel I’ve got stuff to say now. Why? Well, to… Continue reading the inferior spider-fan
was the frequent refrain of River Song in Doctor Who whenever the Doctor tried to read her diary of the future. It’s fairly obvious that she was a mouthpiece for Steven Moffat, who dislikes spoilers intensely and that is indeed a trait common in many writers. The latest prominent writer who’s spoken out against the internet… Continue reading spoilers!
