Slowly but surely I am getting my stuff set back up, the computer was the first part as I am currently searching for a job and need access to my resume files and my email in a manner other than my phone or tablet. Speaking of tablets I am really enjoying my 6th generation iPad that I got recently with the LTE option on it. After some talk with a buddy of mine (mikep) and getting blink-shell on the app store I gotta say its a fantastic ssh experience on iOS. I have been using it to decent success to work on a few side projects like my youtube-dl front-end.
It is pretty wild how much stuff accumulates over the course of 5 years and nothing quite puts it in focus like moving and having to drastically downsize. My office had 3 different desks, 3 computers and 6 monitors ranging in size from 23″ to 27″. To say the heat could get excessive in there was an understatement, I ran a box fan in the hallway to help circulate the air. In the move I have downsized to just a matched pair of 24″ screens and a single desk, hopefully this more focused environment will let me be more productive when it comes to projects and work.
On the topic of work it seems like the more moving I do the more I just want to lock myself away and code, I have ideas for tweaks to existing projects like the hockey-info website and new stuff like YeRP which needs a big push to get to a point where I am ready to release it to the internet for general use. I wonder what it is about absence of coding that makes me want to do it more?
