RE: Where are you all now?
How truthful should wee be? ;)

Those who checked in with my blog postings will know I lived in Spain for a long time, and got some work experience in an office first doing telemarketing then moving to IT Admin/Support.

Then in late 2012 I moved to London, worked in a white goods / electronics store over the holidays and then early 2013 I got a job at a Digital Media company doing content delivery stuff which I was pretty good at so I've stayed there working my way up the ladder bit by bit.

I have a real love/hate relationship with this city. I love it for its live music, cinemas and parks. I hate it for its pace - a constant rush is the opposite of my natural temperament, haha. Also the tension/hostility that you feel from people living here, and how snobby and fake they can be.

I'll escape eventually, but for now, for work, it's okay.

Interesting developments.
Me, I've been living and working at the same place for the past 6 years or so.  Still doing the same things.
Maybe I need a change...

RE: Where are you all now?
Wow, I've been here since 09... Lol I was like 22. Now I'm 32. I went to college to be a software developer. Had two daughters, bought a condo. Started development of Android ROMs on xda, I'm now a senior member there. I'm one of the developers of ROTT(retro pie on the Tinkerboard). Working on a new Android system for the Tinkerboard, lots of Debian and Ubuntu projects. I'm a mad scientist, where I used to just tinker under the hood.

RE: Where are you all now?
Nothing much on this side

2013 - 2016 still in school; did some cool interships along the way, graduated with a Computer Science degree.
2017 was depressed and lost all hope in life (job applications); just wasted the days away.
2018 got a job at a small software company; reignited my passion for life and this field in general. I think money makes a huge difference, I hate it when people say it's not a big deal >:(
2019 still here, just the fact I'm getting paid to write stuff is awesome; it lets me stay in the damn field and become better.

I still waste time all the time :)

Now where the FUCK are my responses

MY SIG IS FUCKING DEAD

RE: Where are you all now?
It's been a long trip but, working in IT now for the state, Good money to be made. running big discord servers and still working on Fucking PSP's, some guy in shenzhen started making some really nice full shells for psp's that have some good fit and finish. its been easier to get parts for re-shelling old systems so that's a plus.
