    Ok - where to next?

    Going pinboard

    I miss the old del.icio.us. Yes, they have fumbled through the ownerships and are still running, but not the same. Maybe it’s a vintage thing. I am 40, with a child on the way, I guess that’s what you do.

    I’ve gone to Pinboard.




    And Like posts - I know I’ve bookmarked things between 2014 and now. Maybe I’ll see if I can find those too.

    For now feel free to follow there, or just look at the new Finds page.

    Science Fiction should be far fetched

    Most of the Sci Fi I watch now, I think…

    “Ya - I can see that happening.”

    Black Mirror has done too good of a job at laying out the plausible.

    Even after watching Altered Carbon.

    I still don’t think most is that far fetched. And I think it should be.

    I’ve seen glimpses that surprised me. Yet still - I’m thinking in my grand children’s time, maybe.

    Maybe I’ve been watching too much…

    Maybe I can’t watch the kind of Sci Fi that I’m looking for.

    I’ve been sitting on the genre sidelines too long. Time to pick up some books.

    I’ll let you know how it goes.

    The Archive is done. Now What

    It took about 10 days, but I think I’ve uncovered most of the archive. There’s a few files missing, mainly all the mp3’s. I know there’s a laptop around here somewhere with em all.

    So now that that’s done…

    Now what?

    I’ve decided to take an audio break and listen to trains. Yup, trains.
