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 […]

  • Quest Completed!

    This has been a very busy week with the start of semester and everything. As you’ve probably guessed from the achievement, my keyboard quest has finally drawn to a close. After a long trek to the Springfield road, I walked away with a 1995 IBM Model M, made in the UK by Lexmark. It’s one […]

  • Back to work

    This week has been pretty busy. I moved into my new place in Belfast properly on Tuesday night, and my time has been spent getting stuff organised for living there and the start of my university year. There’s a year of hard work ahead of me, but also a year of fun and some good […]
