A list of all previous topics in this series can be found here

So, what (or how) are you doing this weekend?

    I'm hoping to start back on my Zelda-like game rewrite tonight, and carry that throughout the weekend, barring the mornings. I'll be spending the mornings with my partner as she is working evenings. Then I have two weeks off of work for some staycay, so hopefully put some more oomph into some devving.

    New engine arrived yesterday. Time to tear it down to prep for the rebuild and head swap.

        A little 80's 4WD light duty off road fun wagon. Specifically a 1983 Toyota Tercel SR5 with a 7AGE engine swap, Arduino powered EFI conversion, modest lift, period wheels, and restomod approach.

    I might go into NYC and ride the subway around. Not sure what to do. Any suggestions?

    I'm buying a motorbike! I passed both parts of my full motorbike test this week (in the UK it's a fairly complicated process to be able to ride a motorbike) so trading my small Yamaha 125 in for a big Triumph.

    Very excited!

    I start classes Monday, so that has me a little nervous and excited. This weekend should be easy going though.

    Yesterday, I went to a doctor's office and had some blood drawn for blood work. I should get those results Saturday or Sunday.

    Today, I'll be posting a suggestion topic to Tildes and installing NixOS on my laptop. Depending on how long I spend tinkering with NixOS, I might try to beat Metro Exodus' "The Caspian" level tonight, we'll see.

    Tomorrow, some friends and I are lighting a campfire, roasting hot dogs, and having a few drinks. Should be fun. Before I head over there tomorrow afternoon I'd like to get some more work done on a task management program I am writing.

    Sunday, I'll be going out for lunch, but don't really have any other plans. If I have time I'll get some work done on writing my next blog post. If I have even more time after that then I'm going to work on writing wiki pages for program ideas on my personal wiki.

    I've talked before about this silly, overarching idea I have for a personal information management, todo list, personal wiki program. I've be writing some of the notes I have for the idea into a structured wiki page. It's been making fleshing out the idea and understanding it much easier.

    I also have other ideas, just stuff that I randomly start thinking about every now and then. For instance, I really like and almost always have terminal windows open for gotop and htop. Wouldn't it be neat if someone came along and combined elements from those two different programs into one? Hm, maybe I should write down some notes about how I would write that program if I ever wanted to?

    Or, this one time, after my friends and I wrapped up this massive, incredibly long game of Civilization V, I started thinking about ideas for a 4X game that I'd like to play.

    My point is, I have a bunch of notes already sitting on my computer, some of them a decade or older. I also have loose ideas pop into my head every now and then. Being able to structure that information and even interlink ideas through a wiki format is really helpful for me to retain and build on those ideas.

    I'm not visiting family and SO this weekend to save some money so i'll just be at home, finish installing and configuring Void Linux on my laptop, encrypt my data HDD and perhaps play some boardgames tomorrow.

    I plan to not spend a dime!

    I'm trying to write and design a video game in the small bits of time between a double-date (me and my wife with our old friends) and all the random shit I have to do around the house, which includes raising a 5 month old and a 4 year old.

    Obligatory thank you for continuing to post these. :)

    This Friday evening and Saturday morning I will be at a tennis tournament for the team I help manage at my school. It's the first matches of the season for them so I'm going to have to help keep their spirits up if the first one doesn't go well.

    This Sunday I have a meeting with a recruiter for a college I've been interested in, and they seem very interested in me based on the amount of stuff they've sent me in the mail and through email.

    I'm also going to try to squeeze in a meeting with a Marine recruiter in somewhere, but that may have to get moved to next week depending on how things go. My weekend is relatively packed compared to previous weekends.

    Played D&D last night, I got to play a new character as last session my PC was reduced to basically a zombie. After working with my DM we sorted the new PC fairly quickly and got things going, had the surprise reveal all set all the party had to do was leave a cave, naturally they wanted to help my character and spent the next hour trying to fix what had happened.
    Once they left the cave and met the new character, the collective "oh... that's why you wouldn't let us fix him".

    And tomorrow is another D&D day, only a different campaign. Wife and kids have gone to the mother in law's so I'm home alone, probably going to paint mini figs.
