Jenkins docker Image + prefix

I’m probably going to need this again sometime.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

I’ve been really enjoying the pizza experiements I’ve been doing lately. Last night’s pizza was left over bbq sauce, pulled chicken, mushrooms and onions. Also tried out throwing in garlic and italian herbs into the crust.

I think it turned out pretty well, except for the lack of roundness.

I keep losing this tweet

I use the favorites/love feature on twitter to come back to things later.

Is one of my all time favourite tweets.

I have noticed when I directly go there through the website, it does not actually remember my initial tweet (Was very happy when I pasted it to wordpress it did give context).

With the deadpool movie now out to top off all the other marvel movie stuff, I’m sure these kinds of thoughts won’t leave my head any time soon.

Telltale’s Back to the Future

The Back to the Future Game game created by Telltale came out in December 2010. As of yesterday (Feb 7th 2016) I finally got around to finishing the game. That’s over 5 years for those who are doing math.

I’m not entirely sure why I picked it up again. I know I’ve been itching to get through the slew of games I’ve kickstarted over the last few years.

Back to the future was actually a kinda slow game to me. I got frustrated a couple of times by the canned responses when items I figured you could show people just say “I don’t know what to do with that” type response. Some of the cutscenes felt slow and long too.

But overall, I really enjoyed it, especially the last couple chapters and the ending itself. If they ever release another adventure, especially with the newer engines, I’d probably pick it up. It was great fun. I loved the fact that Christopher Lloyd actually did all the voice acting for Doc. Micheal J Fox actually showed up a bit for the final chapter. The recurring characters were actually well thought out and enjoyable (or hated in an enjoyable way).

For various reasons over the years, I haven’t been gaming all that much. I know some of it had to do with my monitor (which was also really old). Some had to do with the two bouts of Bells Paulsy, which caused minor eye damage. I suspect desk layout contributed as well. It might help that I’m back to doing a pure development job again.

Suffice to say, This year I’ve already finished two games, that’s more than the last few years.

I can’t see what ends up being next on the list.

Media I’m really enjoying

So I’ve had conversations with people recently about re-reading books and re-watching shows/movies. Now that its so easy to get new content through app stores, or e-book readers, the number of times I re-read has gone drastically down, but here are some of my lists of content I’ll rewatch many times, or re-read, etc.

Books

Looking through my lists, there’s a bunch I should go back and reread

Movies

TV Shows

Note: These are not necessarily my favs, just stuff I’ve watched over and over again.

Video Games

This is a lot harder list to mention, I don’t replay too many games.

PS, really need to stop starting posts with so.

Meatballs

So this year my mom decided I should have a KitchenAid Mix Master for christmas. So far I’m loving it.

Last weekend I totally experimented by making my first ever batch of meatballs. So Nigel and I go off to the store to figure out what we can find. We end up wanting a mixture of meats, so we go with ground turkey and ground sirloin beef.

“The Secret Loves of Geek Girls”

“The Secret Loves of Geek Girls” so far is really good. I’m only on the first story though. Its going to be another hard one to read. Partially because its a book of short stories (i get distracted) and partially, like “Hyperbole and a half”, it puts me into a retrospective headspace where I get thinking about my flaws. The ones I can manage. The ones I can’t. The ones I really want people to understand, and the ones people do.

Its going to be a long read I think. But so far its really awesome.

Bash Remove Extension

I can’t imagine me ever needing this again, but it does highlight bash’s ability to strip extensions.
