Oh hey? Another year?!

Oh, has it really been the better part of a year since my last post? Where did the time go?

Oh... busy job, busy with staffing two furry conventions, busy busy busy. Keeping things updated in here is not a major priority anymore since most people wandered off towards other services.

This is mostly very sad, since LJ still offers a neat place to keep longer updates/articles/rants than - for example - twitter and similar services.

What have I been up to you ask? Honestly, I have no idea what happened during the last half year or so. I had stuff to do and things to attend to almost constantly and totally lost track of time.

The one personal project that kept me somewhat sane was a wooden calendar (I think I mentioned that some time before) and it's almost done now. Didn't quite make it by new year as planned, but it's very close to be finished. It is painted and assembled. The only things that are missing are: the main drive mechanism's weight (have to get some 2kg of lead into some copper pipe and attach that safely to a string) a mounting fixture for the moon (-phase indicator) and a place to hang that thing. Darn, it turned out a bit bigger than I expected, so the original plan won't work out.

On another note, I'll be at NFC and EF this year again, so hope to see some of you there! Say hi!
