Off the edge of despair

Sorry it's been so long since I've made a blog post. Hope you are enjoying your new year, A lot of things have been happening since I last posted. Going to post more often though, so I'll try to keep it up, bi-weekly at least. I've been doing an awful lot of gaming and other activities. New things have come into my life and things have left. It's been a mixed bag of emotions.

Last month I bought a Mac Mini and have been getting used to the switch. Mac OS is just a prettified version of Unix and being a Linux user it's been an easy switch but getting some of the software I used in Kubuntu to work is being a pain in the ass. It's not necessarily the problem with Fink or MacPorts but a problem with 10.6. I've yet to get Amarok compiling due to the dependencies not working. To be honest, I am missing Linux because everything I wanted just worked. I'm a big fan of repositories and Googling everything is stupid. I've been using Kubuntu in VirtualBox. Never used it before, because I've never needed to but it's been a lifesaver. There's still a lot of things I need to sort out on my Mac. I'm yet to configure Apache probably. I'm trying to get Synfig installed as well. Once all my stuff is sorted out I can get on with all my web development I am so behind with. I need to do a new layout and improve the features on my blog. Then I can get on with doing some drawings and planning for my web comic I dream about doing. Happy

Been playing a lot of games recently. Since my last post I've been playing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (which is freaking amazing), Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Assassin's Creed II, Bayonetta and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. If you've been reading my Twitter, you may remember that my old PS3 completely died. I lost several weeks of gaming. I ended up having to restart A Crack in Time due to a corrupted save caused by the old PS3 crashing while saving. During the downtime I played a few PSP games including Secret Agent Clank, LittleBigPlanet and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters. The next big game I'm waiting for it Heavy Rain which is out next month and after that is Final Fantasy XIII.

A few weeks back I let my domain www.sointokoda.co.uk die. It was a tough decision as it's been part of my life since July 2004. I want to thank all my visitors for their support over the years. I'm very happy how popular SIK became and I couldn't have done it without you.
