Here we go again


So it's been a while since I posted anything here. Life's been weird (for everyone) and I've found work quite stressful. On the bright side I'm not stressed about work anymore, I am somewhat stressed about the fact that for the first time in 20 years I don't actually have a job.

I'm not going to go into the details of what's happened but I've got a chunk of money put aside so I have a bit of time to examine my life and decide one what's next. I could probably find another development job easily enough, Senior Developer roles are advertised every day but... I need to accept that I don't do well in large organisations.

I've come to terms with the fact that I'm some flavour of Autistic with a number of years of bad habits I need to work on. I'm terrible at politics and I'm to the point of rudeness. Plus I tend to not suffer fools gladly (I have a TShirt that says "I'm allergic to stupidity I break out in sarcasm" which my wife got me).

So I have a few thought's of things I'm going to do in the hope I can make some money and not have to return to the world of full time employment :


I've got coming up for 40 years experience in Tabletop RPG's and an extensive collection. I'm going to to look at trying to make some PDF's and putting them out there. I've a few ideas for what to do.

Computer Games

I've recently been spending some time using the Godot Engine and have some thoughts for a few small games I might try and build. Also I have a couple of potential projects in this area I might get involved in.


I'm a huge fan of Raku and I'm hoping now I'm going to have the mental energy to code for myself to get back into filling some of the gaps in the langauges module libraries. I'm also thinking I might do some tutorials both here and on Youtube. Also next week I'm going to start reviewing the Raku code in The Perl WeeklyChallenge.


I'm also thinking of doing some writing, and in a effort to get started on that I plan on writing something on this Blog every day.

The Future

So there we go, time for a new chapter in my life. Which I'm hoping will be interesting. I hope that this blog is going to become bigger and full of lots of interesting things, feel free to comment below if anything interests you. But now I must head out to get food.

Be well in these tressful times.
