March – Too busy for an update, I guess

Friday, April 7th, 2006

I hate to disappoint, but I have done absolutely *no* work on the Azureus PHP UI. As for the reason why, I guess it’s because my time spent on web development at home has moved onto a few of bits of cool freelance work I’m currently doing which I’m quite excited about (I will link them up big time when they’re done), plus I’ve been doing cool things like going to Barcelona.

I think the main problem is that I’ve moved away from getting TV torrents by going off and searching for them, and now all my torrents are via RSS feeds, which means I’ve got a fairly constant stream of great TV to watch such as /My Name is Earl/, /Everybody Hates Chris/ and /Family Guy/. On top of that, just as my will to play video games is entirely subsiding, the entirely unlikely happens and it turns out that the /Driv3r/ sequel: /Driver: Parallel Lines/ is actually really good.

A couple of years ago there was this great web-based TV series (apparently they’re called “vidcasts” now) called “The Broken” which was sort of Waynes World meets Slashdot. There was stuff about hacking and social engineering and general geek stuff and it was good, if for a very short time. I only just discovered where it went. The creator and host, Kevin Rose went and created a small production Company, Revision 3 who publish the video blogs Diggnation (all about top Digg stories) and Systm, which seems to be a more grown up version of The Broken. I’m probably one of the last geeks on the planet to discover those, but if you haven’t seen them, have a look.

Spring is here. Thank fuck for that.
