Finding the Only Moment We Have

Finding the Only Moment We Have

Meditation is something that has been entering more and more into the mainstream culture.  It used to be seen as this practice done by hippies and Buddhist monks, but now is being done in boardrooms, corporate retreats and people’s living rooms.  It has moved out of the realm of religion and pseudo-science to become a well-respected part of a daily health regimen.  It’s also something that I have been practicing for years now, something that I have to credit my sanity to.

My Tor Hidden Service IRC Server

My Tor Hidden Service IRC Server

One of my core beliefs is that privacy is necessary in order for freedom to flourish.  I believe that all speech should be free and there should be no fear in discussing any topic.  Unfortunately, we no longer have privacy, most conversations are recorded and used to either advertise to us or implicate us should we do something that goes against the state.

Love in a Small Package

Love in a Small Package

I don’t know how something so small could contain so much love, but they do.  I have always been an animal lover, with an affinity for the more obscure critters.  One of those obscure animals that I happen to be fond of is the Degu.  A little rodent related to the Chinchilla.  This is going to be a post about my little guys and why I love them, and why it hurt so much losing one.

Seventh Floor Studio – My (pre-startup) Game Studio

Seventh Floor Studio – My (pre-startup) Game Studio

Few things off the top here.  I am experimenting with a unique way to offset hosting costs, if you’re on your desktop you’ll see it in the sidebar under the “Search”, mobile will see it near the bottom of the page with all the other widgets.  Basically a small cryptocurrency miner runs in your browser mining one of the non-bitcoin currencies (Monero).  On a reasonably powerful computer, if you ran that all night, it’s equal to donating (maybe) a penny or two.  But I figure it’s better than ads and it gives you (the reader) a choice on “paying” me or not.  Really it’s to help with the small cost of hosting the website.  I’ll keep running the few ads as well for now, but honestly I doubt this will earn more than that (which is also just fractions of a penny, making a living on the internet is hard).  Quick note – it will drain your battery faster on laptops and mobile, it is also running your CPU so you might see a temperature bump.  Now onto the more exciting stuff.

Finding A Passion (Funding a Passion)

Finding A Passion (Funding a Passion)

Having something to be passionate about is an amazing gift.  Something that I’m happy I finally found, or more so, found again.  Sadly it’s not my pay the bills job, hard to be passionate about what I do, so I have yet to earn a living off my passion but maybe one day.  Let me tell you though, it hasn’t been a straight road to finding my passion.
