I'm picking up the sword my player forged for me on Wednesday this week. Look out for pics and a video with the obligatory melon decimation.

Right now I’ve got three brews on in the office. One 20l English pale ale, 1 5l Traditional Mead and one 5l Bochet.
The background blp blp from the air locks is quite relaxing.

The existence of draft horses strongly implies the existence of Final FINAL rev1 (copy) (backup) FINAL3 dot horses.

My office was 40C today at its hottest. My cat is stretched out on the laminate floor trying to stay cool, and giving me the “fix this bullshit weather” look.

Mead under my desk currently going gulg. May be ready to drink at Xmas.

I was half tempted to print and laminate a few signs with this logo and add them to the "observe social distancing" warnings, but there is CCTV on the entrance to the gents and doing stuff like this usually results in bother further down the line (Tendring have enough locals taking the piss already...)

Took my home brew equipment out of the loft for the first time in 10 years. Most of still where I remember putting it, and looking in fairly alright shape from what I can tell.
I’ll be laying down 2 gallons of mead and about 5-10 gallons of beer as a long and short term project.

‪Saw a piece of software so old that the CVEs listing it’s vulnerabilities were written in Sanskrit. ‬

I’m 8 episodes into DM’ing my first D&D campaign, and out of the blue one of my players tells me he’s forged me a sword to say thanks.
Like, literally forged a sword, and sent me videos of it being quenched, and the handle design, pommel design etc.
I couldn’t believe it.
I just wanted to try and give people some escapism while the world burns, I had no idea it would touch someone so much they felt like doing this.

61 days of casual Japanese learning and Hiragana is finally beginning to stick in my head.

Discovered a synth wave group called Occams Laser today. Made my day.

Had a play with a CTF today between my daughters lessons.
My pen tester head really slowed me down, these CTF challenges and full on moon logic none sense. They do not behave at all the way a legitimate application would.

When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time
