   Memento Mori

an0malous    16th May 2019   


One of the things that I have struggled with most is figuring out exactly how to start coding, or to start a project up. I think that is a weakness that needs to be addressed, but I think I have a solution -- and an easy one at that. How correct am I about this hunch? I've no clue, but I'm going to jump in head-first because that is what I do best.

I think the best approach may be to do exactly as I mentioned above... just get started. It's not a matter of what or how, but actually getting your hands dirty. Once you start, you basically just take off and let your creativity take over. If…


   The Rider

I had an interesting scenario play out before me earlier today. A rather unruly looking biker pulled up to me on his motorcycle as I stood watching my kids ride their bikes around in a near desolate parking lot. He had on his jean vest, laden with patches and insignias -- or colors, as they are called. With his motor still running, he said "You know, I used to bring my daughter here to ride her bike. I just saw you with your kids down here. She's 29 now and all fucked up on drugs... you gotta keep watching them, man."

The expression on his face changed from that of happiness sharply into sorrow. Without hesitation he cranked the throttle…


   Woes Before Throes 0x2

Well, some good has come around my neck of the woods, and I'm certainly in a good mood. I passed the LX0-104 exam so now I'm officially Linux+ and LPIC-1 certified. Happy to the point where I even bought myself some more books to read. At some point, when I'm up to the task, I will write more tutorials on linux commands with examples so as to test my knowledge.


Now that I've gotten through that stage, I feel I'm ready to tackle some more serious work. I don't think I need the papers to prove myself, so I'm not doing this for certs anymore (not to knock those who collect certs for a living), but it's just…

Testing the waters out. Migrated the DB to circumvent some issues, so that's really all I care to test. It is March first, and it seems like it has taken forever to get to this point, but I'm holding strong. I'll throw in some udpates whenever I get around to working on some projects.




   Victory For Me 0x1

I took all of the learning methods that I was studying up on and applied them to the LX0-03 exam and missed only one question. I'm glad I didn't quit and put in all of my energy into passing the exam, but I do feel like I could have done more. I actually enjoyed explaining the TR command and feel like I shouldn't stop there, even if I already passed the exam.

I still need LX0-04, however, so there should be more blogging to do. I feel as if I'm falling out of sorts the past couple of days, however. My focus isn't a great and my motivation is sliding. I have an inkling as to why, but I'm rather…
