Trying to keep up with my blog entries as much as possible, but it's been rather hectic of late. Last Friday was officially my last with my old company. Now I'm starting to work on SALTWRX trying to find stuff to do. Ultimately, if I can't find anyone to help out, be it with web development or network support, I'm probably going to start hunting for bugs. I don't think it's a bad idea, and it's definitely a way to pay the bills.
I decided to take on an employee via a contract opportunity. It's more a mentorship than anything else, but I feel like it's going to also help me to improve my own skills as well. Nothing bad about reinforcing what you already know, right? Or, at the very least, it will help me to figure out the stuff that I don't know or need clarification on, anyway.
A funny thing that I realized during my Linux+ preparation, was that I seemed to retain information after just skimming the material. Unlike thoroughly reading through the material as I normally would, it's as if my brain funneled the information in at a faster rate when it was just in my periphery. I'll likely try this out a bit more to see what I can make of it.
My Casio PT-87 project has been collecting dust in my garage. I really wish I had more time to tinker with it, but it's just one of those projects that I have to put on the back-burner so I can have time to dedicate to my business. I've got several other projects I would like to get around to, like custom effects and a custom drum machine as well. Perhaps once I have my ducks in a row I can use my weekends to dedicate to my pet projects. One of these days I will have a hit nerdcore single. ;)
Another idea I have floating around in my brain (as if I don't have enough of those already) is to start up a podcast. Nothing crazy, just want to try it out and see what happens. At this point, I haven't even though about what I would, or could, talk about. There are so many people out there making good quality podcasts, but one thing that caught my attention was a talk on HPR about pirate radio.
I kinda like the idea of running my own pirate radio style podcast. I was planning on making a podcast show for my other project website RGVRocks, but I still haven't gotten around to even building that website. That would have covered local band interviews down in the Rio Grande Valley, but I'm not even down there anymore. One of these days I'll figure it out.
On that note, I think I'm done for now. Stay chill.
