Summary for the month of Oct 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for October, 2017.

It continues to get darker and drearier up here, as the cold starts seeping in for real. The cats are getting more and more cuddly, and the weight of them at night is like sleeping in a mummy bag, trapping me in cat created claustrophobia …

Lots of reviews this month, and food. Cats, books, and food. I’m okay with that.

Do check out what I’m up to over at Rigaroga’s Odd Order and Hermetic Library for more.

Summary for the month of Sept 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for September, 2017.

The cats and I are starting to feel the cold. We’re cuddling up and getting ready for more.

I’ve been adding some new litter boxes for the cats which don’t use dusty clay, and it’s been going okay so far. It’ll be a long process, but I’m really hoping to reduce the amount of heavy clay waste as well as the dusty clay in the air. With the windows just getting closed against the coming cold, it’s even better to have less dust in the air!

Over on Odd Order and Hermetic Library, the deadlines for submissions to the 2017 anthologies just past, so I’m working on getting submissions and playlists sorted for release.

I’ve been posting videos and streaming over on Odd Order as Rigaroga a bunch now with since that better Internet was installed. It’s been great to be able to get back to it. Also, I’ve been doing a series of solo RPG sessions. I’d really like to get into a weekly game or two with others, but I’ll keep doing solo sessions either way, I think.

I’ve also been trying to get a regular schedule for posting book reviews going, and that’s been working out so far. I’ve been posting them to my personal blog, but also over on GoodReads. Then, I syndicate those out to the blogs for Hermetic Library and Odd Order as well. You can see a bunch in this summary already, along with pictures of cats and food, and some other asides.

Well, it’s been a busy month, with getting ready for winter in real life as well as with activity online!

Summary for the month of Aug 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for August, 2017.

I’ve been able to start posting more regularly on the blog, with photos of cats and things, and with book and movie reviews. It was a long cold winter, but the cats and I all survived! Lately, it’s been a long hot summer, but luckily I had an AC in storage that I could install so the cats and I have been okay!

Over the last year, a local telco has installed fiber up the highway, and a DSLAM less than 100′ from where I am. So, I was able to get a land-based high speed Internet connection installed, and due to the short distance it’s pretty darned fast too! In a wild twist, AT&T also expanded 4G LTE coverage out here too. From being stuck with only satellite for the last year, suddenly I’ve got all kinds of options!

Unfortunately, the telco has a serious congestion problem on their network at a main interconnection point, so it’s less than ideal, and I don’t see nearly the performance I should. But, it’s not nothing! It works-ish!

The high speed has meant that I’ve been able to start doing online projects again, and have been active over on my geeky Rigaroga persona and the Odd Order blog. I’ve also started trying out a few things for Hermetic Library, like Reader’s Theatre and so forth.

Well, I’m still 30 minutes from the nearest grocery store, and only get to town every other month-ish lately, but I’ve got high speed Internet!

The cats have been going through more than 72 cans of cat food and well over 40 lbs of litter every two weeks, if you were wondering. It’s a lot! But, they’re all doing pretty good, even the house cats I moved inside before winter hit. The nine of us have been getting along with only an occasional kerfuffle over elbowroom or places to sleep.

Anyhow, I thought I’d start doing these monthly summaries, in part so I could post them to my Patreon.
