It’s been a while…

Oh, right, I have a blog…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something here, although today I’ve updated the supermarket page, which seem to driving a fair amount of traffic to this here blog on a daily basis.

Although things didn’t work out as planned, for the last year (next week anyhow) I’ve been busy working at my current company and I’m really enjoying what I’m doing there. It’s very different from what I’ve done before, but it’s been a good challenge and I learn new things on almost a daily basis which is the type of job I enjoy doing.

As for this blog, it’s not going anywhere, but I don’t have much time to spend on it either, but I’ll try to at least keep the supermarket list up to date. I’ve also added a new entry, a local deli that sells some rather unique products for Taiwan.

Until next time…

On a roll… with the blog at least

So, two posts in one day, that’s a new record and this’ll be the third. I have a ton of stuff I ought to add on here, but I just haven’t gotten around to doing it for one reason or another. As far as my little side project, not much has happened due to various reasons outside of our control, but the matter of fact is that we had to start over from scratch and we’re now working with a different company. That said, things are somewhat better now, but still far from ideal so we’ll see how things progress.

Otherwise little else is new as I’m still doing the same old job, but I’m getting to the point where I’m close to be willing to do anything but what I’ve been doing for the past five years. The industry isn’t what it used to be and no-one seems to care about quality content any more, which is quite disappointing, but we got all the tech blogs to thank for that…

Oh boy…

I guess I’ve really neglected this blog, as I haven’t written anything on it for over a year…

I’m still in Taiwan, although these days I have a full-time job and things are overall much better than they’ve been for a few years. I’m working on a project on the side that has taken far more time than we expected, but hopefully we should be launching something come next year. The project is related to video streaming, so if it’s something you’re doing on a semi-professional basis, make sure you check out http://throwput.com/ come next year, as we should have an interesting product for anyone that’s stuck using a webcam of a FireWire camcorder by then, but I don’t want to reveal too much information about it right now.

If you ever think about creating your own product, expect it take at least six months longer than you thought it would, as things are never as easy as you think they are.

Work in progress…

Well, wasn’t happy with the temporary site design, so here’s a slightly better one, but it’s still a work in progress and it’s unlikely I’ll be done with it any time soon.

Apart from that, well, life is what it is, but it’s not fantastic at the moment. Maybe I’m just reflecting too much at what I’m not doing instead of actually doing something about getting myself into a different situation…

Anyhow, we’ll see how things goes, they tend to sort themselves out one way or another, right?

New site design and some changes

Well, I’ve finally gotten around to do something of a custom design, not sure it’s the final choice, especially the colours, but it’s a work in progress. I’ve also updated the supermarket list, as some things were not up to date and I added another small chain called Kuma to the list.

I still suck at blogging regularly, but hey, such is life I guess. Been keeping busy with tons of work recently, too much in fact, but the good news is that I’m at least finally starting to make some money. Been doing a couple of video projects and learnt a lot along the way and I’m still learning. If this works out to be a regular thing, then I’m going to have to invest in some better equipment and as tempted as I am by Sony’s new NEX-VG10, it’s a bit outside of my current budget to say the least.

At least the weather has been ok the last couple of weeks, although a tad on the hot side with it hitting 36 degrees plus. Either which way it’s better than rain…
