I’ve Subscribed…To A Twitch Channel!

The title says it all really. Today, I subscribed to a Twitch channel. I never thought I’d do this. I’ve never fully got the Twitch thing, which I’ll get to shortly. The channel I’ve subscribed to is Geek and Sundry, which is certainly something I never thought I’d do. I’ve …

Welcome to FLN Phase Three

Get ready for some ‘timey wimey’ stuff. This blog was written on 1st July 2015. That was when I decided that Fandomlife.net, my blog, written myself in Coldfusion, needed to be brought into modern times. Once I’d made this decision I couldn’t bring myself to post to the current blog, …

Having Gone Cold Turkey

So, four months ago, I effectively dropped out of playing tabletop role-playing games. The first thing to say is it doesn’t feel like four months, which probably says something in and off itself. The second thing to say is it was a bit strange, but only at first. The usual …

The Life Logging Thing

A while back I read a couple of paragraphs somewhere on life logging and an app called Saga. Then I forgot completely about it. I’ve even forgot what directed me to the idea again, I’ve downloaded the Saga Android App and began an experiment in life logging. It’s probably worth …

Breaking out of PAYE

Like a lot of people in the UK, I suspect, I’ve been a PAYE employee for the majority of my working life. In fact, technically, until very recently, all of my working life. This tends to result in two truths: your tax is taken at source and you receive the …

A 2012 (or so) Review

I’ve been a bit remiss in the tradition of setting out some goals for the year and then reviewing them at the end. It would seem I set some goals out in 2010 but never got back to them. I think 2009 drove them out of me a bit as …
