If gaming isn’t a part of your life, you’re doing it wrong.


  • Almost There (Ordinary Decent Office)

    I haven’t been feeling well and have run out of time this evening so this will be a quick update with a more in depth post later. My thumb survived at least. Almost There The office project is nearing completion. It has been over a year since I demolished those terrible bookcases in anger, and […]

  • Between a Saw and a Hard Place (Ordinary Decent Office)

    Not somewhere you’d like to be, as I found out to my detriment, and testament to taking your time and doing a job right the first time. You won’t be overly surprised to hear there’s more DIY in this post. The work on the office continues in earnest. I left off the last episode with […]

  • Ordinary Decent Shelving

    The office saga continues… I spent much too long poking around in the ceiling this week. Enough time to warrant buying an endoscope to see what the hell was going on. Picking up from where we left off last week, I was working on the network aspect of the office project. WiFi is fine, but […]

  • A Millenial Says What?

    Disclaimer: these are fictional statements and any resemblance to overheard conversation on public transport is unintentional. No, really. Or, the “it’s so stereotypical it’s painful” bus conversations in liberal America. Millenial is often trotted out as a derogatory label, which I resent, being part of the contrived generation myself. However, some individuals are so painfully […]

  • Treehouse to Bullet Train

    The unseasonably warm weather continues, and the office USB fans are struggling to keep the temperature to a manageable level. It’s time for some projects in the shade. When we bought our house, it wasn’t the only dwelling on the land. We inherited a treehouse built for the previous owner’s grandchildren. Given our distinct lack […]
