Marriage 29 Dec 2014

After an intense 6 month anti marriage campaign I finally proposed to Hannah (28th Dec 2014). Lucky for me she said yes. I have fairly strong views on marriage, what it should be and what it shouldn’t. I don’t (or should that be didn’t?) want to jump into it without being 100% sure. We’ve talked about marriage in the past and we both understand where we’re coming from, that’s what makes our relationship work so well. I finally asked her because it’s my commitment to her. Here’s how it went down: Me: whisper - I have a question for you....

CBT Update 09 Dec 2014

I gave up on CBT. The sessions were too infrequent and sporadic. I really didn’t like the over the phone sessions either they were too impersonal and didn’t really contribute anything. The one thing I did get out of the sessions was helpful pointers with where i need to focus and what tools I need to give myself to be able to cope with things in the long run. I’ve started practising mediation, it gives me a sense of being and helps me re-connect my body and mind. I analyse my feelings more, this helps determine the cause of my...

Thoughts on Video Streaming Services 30 Nov 2014

Since I no longer have a magical content providing server in France I’ve been trying out a few different streaming services. Apparently this is a lot harder than it seems! #Pre Reqs * HD - must be HD where available * Large library * Available on multiple libraries * Linux compatible #Google Play I’m not sure about this service. It’s ok I got a Transformers movie free when I got my Nexus 7 tablet but I’m not 100% sold on it. The HD film worked well on my tablet but I never got around to seeing if it was available...

The Move to Ubuntu 29 Nov 2014

I finally did it! I moved from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 14.04. It’s not entirely great but it’s working and I can make as many changes as I want. #Problems Unity Launcher - Honestly it’s damned annoying, I hate how I can’t move it to the right hand side of the screen which would be much better with my dual monitor configuration. 2nd Sound Card didn’t work - Troubleshooted it and for once everything actually seemed ok. I had to install a 3rd party mixer to find that the card was muted and worked. Default Ubuntu still looks butt ugly....

Moving To Ghost 25 Nov 2014

After a conversation erupted on #drupal-uk about using the right tool for the job I decided that I would move my blog to something that was right for the job. #Why move from Drupal? Firstly Drupal is great! I love working with it on a daily basis but it’s overkill for what I need. I have more half finished attempts at adding a cool feature on the old Drupal site than I care to admit to. Drupal allowed me to get an idea of what I wanted from a blog this is something that influenced greatly my decision to move...
