Felt tip pen scenery

While attempting to de-stress from a very busy time at work, I thought I would have a stab at doing some art, to see if it would help. This was my first attempt, as its been ages since I have done any drawing.

GPD WIN 2 – Handheld Gaming PC

Lately I have been messing around with my GPD WIN 2, which is a nice little Windows 10 Handheld computer used for gaming. Think the Nintendo Switch, but it’s a PC and you can run games from the Steam, Uplay, Origin and GOG store on it.

It does not run the very latest games, after all, its a small battery powered handheld, but, it does a decent job of running older games.

I have recorded a number of videos about how certain games perform on it, and you may want to take a look.

Walking photography

Introducing a new feature to my blog, an interactive map showcasing some of my amazing pictures I have taken while I have been on some of my mammoth walks, trying to keep healthy and fit.

The map can be found below, but you can also get to it from the side menu of this web site, and via the following link.  I will be keeping it up to date with new photographs when I take them.

An ode to the number 42

The pronic number of 42 is the second sphenic masterpiece,

An update on my health

Well, Its been over a year since I started down the road to get my legs sorted.  Two operations later, and I am feeling pretty good.  I seem to be able to walk pretty well, managing significantly more than the 10 minutes walk to the shops that I could barely do before.  I still get a little bit of pain if I either over stretch myself, or, if I have been particularly lazy, and get out of practice.

Its still a lot better though. I can comfortably manage a good 3-4 km walk in one go, exploring some places I had never previously seen before.  My standard working from home day involves about 30-50 minute walk on a lunch time.

Feeling pretty good, losing a bit of weight, and generally feeling like a new man.  However, it now feels like I have swapped bad legs for a bad back 🙁
