Today is my birthday. I released a Doom2 WAD entitled budrum26(my age too) and then I opened this blog after a night of having some beers with friends.
People suggested me to open a blog cause it is suitable for people like me. I use to blog (meaning: to kill a lot of senseless bytes via useless(?) rants) at pouet.net, talking with friends or even when I walk alone in the city (and this one is my favorite). I did once one in the past but then I had no time to update (Though, how ironically, it was possible for me to preserve much greater amounts of time for my craptalk at Pouet ;P). Pouet and the scene pwnz me.
So, this is where I give it a second try and see if it works. Now, it seems I am having more mood for wasting time on the net and I also bought a cheap modem (I used to have a life. Now I have a computer and a modem. (Not mine. Who said that first?)) plus some internet prepaid cards and now I connect from home. I feel like having more time while at home. Netcafe speedsurfing (meaning: to be on a run at websurfing due to the fact that you have only one single euro in your pocket ;) is a past, well most of the times now, though I am writting this from a netcafe cause I sometimes like the atmosphere here (Yeah right! Cradles of smoke and loud voices from kids bursting your ears. Yeah right!). So, I may have the time and feel to update this blog more frequently than in the past. Though, it doesn't really matter, this time I will keep the blog in existance even if I have months to post..
I've the feeling that blogging is a very interesting (yet foolish for some) phenomena on the net. I've recently bumped into some articles about how it defines a new culture on the internet or is possibly a way of communication/opinion posting for every folk out there in the world (or at least those fortunate ones who can afford a computer and an internet connection ;P). Recently, a greek writer whose thoughts I was reading in his site, decided to open a blog after he'd noticed that there is more fuzz around the matter and even Tim Berners Lee opened one. It makes me wonder how come this writer needed a blog since he already has a very nice site posting several of his fairly interesting writtings. I guess it's just about testing something new and interesting that has invaded the internet. I also have a website (located at http://optimus.demoscene.gr), though I rarely find the time to update it and it doesn't have an dynamic way of updating texts anyways (still writting pure html in notepad :). I don't know what I'll do with this website, holding downloads of stuff I've created is fine, though website updating is much of a fuzz for me anymore.
Let's only hope that I update this blog frequently..
