Let me get right to the point. I often feel scatterbrained. I have too much going on in my mind at any given moment and can’t organize my thoughts sufficiently to get anything productive accomplished. I’m working on it. So far, I’ve found if I can just force myself to do something really simple (like writing this blog post) I can sort of “hack” my brain into focusing long enough to not be so disorganized and that usually helps for a while. So thanks for reading this rambling, it helped me get back on track and so vicariously so have you! Have a great day!

Just Another Code Monkey

Being a programmer I’ve always been able to relate to Jonathan Coulton’s “Code Monkey” song. Thankfully as the years have passed the treatment I have received from others has steadily improved.

Anyway, I didn’t start this post to write about the experience of being a programmer, I’ll save that for another time. Instead I wanted to mention that I have really been enjoying the “Code Monkey Save World” comics written by Greg Pak and based on songs by Jonathan Coulton.  I backed their Kickstarter project and am glad I did as I’ve really enjoyed everything so far. The comics are great and everything I hoped they would be and better. The CMSW Acoustic Album is excellent as well.

If you aren’t a backer of the project, you can still get the comics via Comixology and you can get Jonathan Coulton’s music via Amazon.

Note that some of his songs have swear words and/or adult content so they are not for everyone, but if you like humor and are not easily offended by life in general then you might want to give them a listen.

That’s all for now.

A New Purpose

Just a quick post to mention that I’m still alive and doing well. Life is busy, but I do miss writing. I have a lot of creative things in mind and most of it is less technical. I think the original purpose is not going to work for me or this site (there are too many sites out there that do it better and more consistently and I’m happy about that).

Being honest with myself here, I haven’t posted in so long because I felt guilty that I could not post quality content within the scope of what I had originally intended this site to be for. Now I realize (or accept, rather) that I need only free myself of that limitation and I can post anything I want. So that is what I will do (and now, hopefully, more often). I think I’ll have some fun with it and let this be an outlet of stress relief for me (and anyone who cares to read it).

So, I look forward to it. See you around folks (figuratively at least).
