I should preface this blog post by saying that the main reason for this blog post is to try out my new mechanical keyboard. Most keyboards (your Logitech keyboard, your laptop keyboard) have membrane switches — where a bit of rubber is popped down by each key press. A mechanical keyboard has real switches under each key, resulting in a very different tactile response — and a much louder, clacky sound. I thought about shooting a video, where you could…

My first egg (held by my sister)

So, I’ve finally done two things that I’ve been endeavouring to do for the last five years: Visit Ireland, and get some egg-laying chickens. Let’s start with the chickens. My dad and I have always joked about getting farmyard-type animals. First it was a goat, to ‘mow’ the lawn (you tether it in one location for a few days, it eats all the grass, and then you move the tether). Then it was a pig — a Vietnamese potbellied pig…

Here’s a video walkthrough of my apartment: And here’s a video of the sunset from Asbury Park last night (or maybe the night before): Except…

I’ve been busily working on some changes to this blog! Nothing ground-breaking, just… tweaks. First, I’ve cut down the sidebar a little. Now it links through to a few of my favourite tags (on religion, on sex and girls, on culture, etc.), and a handful of my favourite blog posts. Second, you can now buy photos from this blog! I’ve created a gallery with almost every photo in — and on select photos throughout the site, when you click on…
