Hello world! Remember me? I can’t begin to explain the hours I’ve been putting in at Cbeyond, not that I’m complaining…I’ve been on the other end of that stick and can tell you from first hand experience that being unemployed is a lot worse than you think. I do believe that it has affected my blogging, or rather lack thereof. I tend to leave work mentally exhausted, get home and eat dinner, watch a little TV or possibly a movie, then hit the sack…which recently, I’m ashamed to admit, has been around 8:30 PM (excluding tonight).
The long hours put in at work tends to drain me of any motivation to write. I’ve had a few fleeting ideas, but nothing I felt was worth my time. About the only geek-worthy task I’ve accomplished as of late is updating my server and that requires an active ssh session to my vps and a simple sudo pacman -Syu. I really need to try something new.
That in mind, I decided to type this entry entirely from within the confines of the WordPress Android app on my phone. I actually feel quite liberated writing this from the comfort of my bed, no keyboard or gigantic monitor to fuss with, and my trusty kitten Sox curled up next to me. I like how I can hold my phone in my hands and type up this entry…I don’t believe this would work well on a tablet. I have read about others, however, who have set up their iPad/Android tablet to code on. We’ll see if this new “medium” for blogging takes hold…I guess you’ll know if suddenly I crank out more regular posts!
