So here are a couple of nice things, some awesomeness and perhaps a dash of squee.
We went skiing the first week of January and it was brilliant. Thankfully we went to Salzburg and not Tirol, so avoided getting snowed in. It did snow rather heavily the last two days, so we had the chance to work on our powder snow technique. Apart from that the snow was very fast (except perhaps on the last day), which was unusual, but not at all unwelcome. I'm very happy with my new skis
. They're a few centimetres shorter than my old ones, but the radius "feels" about the same. Very stable, too.
Sherlock. Just... there aren't really words for how awesome this show is, right? The writing is excellent, as is the directing and acting. And even though the third series is confirmed, there was this heartstopping moment of thinking "they couldn't possibly get out of this one". Wow.
Have any of you (How many people read this thing anyway? Three? Four, perhaps?) seen Benedict Cumberbatch in The Last Enemy? If not, go watch it now. It is amazing. And scary and suspenseful and will possibly make you cry. Consider yourselves warned.
I finally got my midi keyboard working with JACK and LMMS in Ubuntu Studio. It only took me a year, but yeah :) I found a couple of really good VSTs for LMMS (a Chinese flute and a saxophone). Maybe one day I'll take the time to do more than just play around with it. Still waiting for that spark of inspiration. It'll come, I'm sure.
I've been rather quiet lately (a couple months, really). The only times I felt the need to write an entry was when I wanted to rant about something. Didn't want this blog to get too negative, so I've mostly stopped myself from writing about stuff that goes wrong/annoys me/etc.
