A sort of catchup, and talk of microblogging
It has come to my attention that I haven’t posted a damn thing in here for what some might call ages. This is practically abandonware now, not sure what I’ll do with it.
blogging has changed for me, to microblogging which is far more convenient, gratifying and instantaneous as one can see results within usually, the first few minutes of posting something. Sad, but true.
In any case, I will keep LJ around but if it wasn’t obvious or anything, I’m mostly to be found over there instead of over here where I microblog many times a day for the most part, and where you can follow both my lovely wife and my little boy Jake. yup, even small children blog these days, it’s just a sign of the times don’t ya know?
What else? Aah yes, created myself a youtube channel where i posted exactly *one* video but that will of course grow to be more in the future. MRS louis also has a youtube channel of her own where she posts many videos of Jake at play, and other such fun things should you wish to investigate that at your leasure.
So given my lazyness, I’ll quickly throw around some more links to things I’ve been doing of late.
In no particular order then:
Onj.me, a url shortener for well, shortening urls that isn’t bit.ly met.al goo.gl or any of the others. What for? Simply because I could. Use it, get your friends to use it, it’s something to do. If for no other reason than you can say you know the guy that was sad enough to put the thing online.
We went that one step further and made our own Windows desktop application to shorten urls as you put them in the clipboard, just to make your life that bit easier.
Other things. Hmm. Oh yes, played at a gig on Feb 24 with my dad which you can download from the above link if you wish. Was quite fun, and my first gig in many many months.
My album continues to sell fairly well in the digital stores, at present made just a tad over $350 from it’s creation in August of 2009, so can’t complain too loudly.
Even payed for a 48-second album promo created for me by the very talented
Patrick Perdue as I trust very few people to do quite such a great job at audio, which is nothing personal to Steve
and Derek Lane of course, but he got the right idea for the kind of sound I wanted.
Onj’s TV is now about a year old and some, continuing to bring you quality?… programming from this side of the pond at all hours of the day and night.
Now what? I don’t know. I’m all linked out I think. I think I got all the relevant points out in any case so I’ll put this out there for some reason or another, and continue to read more HP fanfic because this one seems really good so far. Hopefully it’ll stay that way.
good day, and enjoy yourselves. Chances are you won’t hear from me till I turn 28 anyway, as infrequent as I post, so sometime after May 30th. Sad, but true.
