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.

Drupal allowed me to get an idea of what I wanted from a blog this is something that influenced greatly my decision to move...

I’m a long way from that time, but in order to get here I started taking anti-depressants and beta blockers. I’m sure that without them I wouldn’t be in the position I am now but they have a lasting effect. I’ve decided that I want to get off them, they’re starting to scare me, they’re like a fake reality that’s projected in front of my...
