Just some rapid-fire stuff…

  • I built the LEGO Ghostbusters “Ecto-1”, the box for which I’ve had tucked away in my closet for years now, finally, to join the holiday-season LEGO display in the library (what’s supposed to be the dining “room” in this little apartment of ours), but my attempts to photograph the build process turned out poorly.
  • Related to that, I’ve learned that I really need to avoid the “auto” modes on my new camera or it’s going to give me very grainy pictures. Ah well.
  • The previous webserver is now shut down, I moved everything over, and it looks like we’re stable on the new server. Huzzah, and thanks again to Linode for making such a great VPS environment.
  • I burned my first M-Disc archival Blu-Ray disc filled with music videos, mostly saved & converted materials from various DVDs on the shelf. It certainly took a while, but so far it seems to have worked. Check back with me in 1000 years to find out if the claims of lifespan for M-Disc media are proved by real-world experience!
  • My main game right now is Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I finished my first run through a few days ago (I backed Edelgard, which… from a storytelling perspective is very questionable, admittedly) and now I’m in “new game plus” mode with all the advantages that entails, working with the Golden Deer faction. Archery everywhere.
  • Summer is over. Thank all the deities.
