I've been really withdrawing into myself lately. I apologise for the fact that some of you haven't heard from me for a long, long time.
I need to come out of my shell again.
In the meantime, hi. I'm still here and still around. Obviously not journalling like I used to, and I miss everybody. How are you all?
Things that have changed since I last wrote anything in here:
- I'm back to using Linux full-time. (Specifically, Gentoo Linux.) This came about because through some bad judgements on my part, Windows 7 started bluescreening on boot and I couldn't recover from it. Instead of reinstalling Windows 7 and having to set my environment back up again, I decided to switch back to Linux.
I did this because I've been telling myself for a while that once the time comes to move off Windows 7, I'd want to move to Linux rather than use Windows 8 or 10. (Especially Windows 10... but that's a topic for another post.) This was probably the best time to do so, since although I *could* go back to Windows 7, it's quickly on its way to becoming unsupported, and general Linux support is just getting better.
( Rambling about Gentoo, and Linux distributions in general. )
- I've been making a lot of music with SunVox lately. It's a great program which combines tracking with modular synthesis. In that sense it's kinda like Jeskola Buzz, except that I never actually used Buzz back in the day as it needed more CPU power than I had at the time, if I remember correctly.
Like a lot of creative stuff I do, most of my tunes done using it are a work in progress that I'm not ready to release to a wider audience yet. Hopefully at some point I can release stuff, though. I'm getting pretty close on one song in particular.
- ...you know, I can't think of much else right now. :/
How has everybody else been?
