Geekery at its peakery

So as of the current moment I’m no longer using Ubuntu Budgie. Not that I’ve had enough of Linux, oh no, far from it, quite the opposite in fact…

That’s my secret…

I’m generally an angry person. I have a lot of anger for a lot of things, and I tend to dwell on my emotions quite a lot, even if I don’t outwardly show them very much at all.

Mental Hellth

So it’s been a(nother) couple of months since I wrote anything. To be honest this last couple of months have been hard. I noticed today that my activity and interaction with others on Twitter for example had tanked over the past couple of months, and there were even a handful of days where I made zero tweets all day, which is completely unlike me!

For the Alliance! Wait, what?

For the past eight years, since I came back to World of Warcraft, I have been a dedicated Horde player. When I re-subscribed I immediately sought out a guild, the sister guild of the old Alliance guild I’d started off WoW in during the middle 6 months of 2006 (Gnome Warlock!). I’ve been a member there now for just over 8 years, and been a member, raider, guild leader, ex-member for a week (long story), guild leader again, and for the most part, a raid leader too. That guild is Thunder and since Feb/March 2009 I never looked back. Until

Finding a new home…

Sar Crux is no more, either as a twitter handle or a domain name… Yes the domain, sarcrux.com will still point here, but that will eventually expire, so try to update your bookmarks before that! 🙂 Why the reason for the change?

Still alive #isurvived2016

Don’t worry, I’m still around 🙂 Been taking a break from WoW due to burn out, and been enjoying the time off away from the game over Xmas & New Year, especially as I got a PS4 from Mrs Sar for Chrimbo 😀 I’ve got a pretty hard case of burnout from grinding AP for 3 months straight, so time away is doing me good, especially ahead of Nighthold releasing in 12 days. Been playing quite a lot of Overwatch too, and enjoying getting into it again. D.Va is my girl, and she can do no wrong! 🙂 Expect more regular

Splitting the difference between Red and Blue

Or, seeing how the other half live for a change… So, you may have noticed, if you’ve been following my recent tweets, that I’ve been playing a lot of different alts and a lot of them are on the Alliance side of the fence. I’ve decided that come Legion, despite the fact that I’ll be maining a Guardian Druid for my horde guild, Thunder, it’s time for a bit of a change.

That’s my secret, I’m always angry…

  Angry. Really, properly, angry. A white-hot, incandescent, rage-fuelled, burning, seething, roiling, pure, barely restrained anger. That’s how I’ve felt since the result of the EU Referendum was announced in the early hours of Friday morning, when the UK had, incomprehensibly, voted by a slim margin to leave the EU. My last post about this before the referendum was largely an on the fence one, but as you have probably guessed I went with my head rather than my heart, and made the sensible, logical choice to remain a member of the EU. It seems however, that slightly too many

Brexit: Thoughts from someone on the fence…

Not exactly our typical sort of programming, but then again there’s a reason why I renamed from Sargaming.net to SarCrux.com 😉 So the EU Referendum in the UK is merely days away, and as someone who is pretty firmly-ish on the fence I’ve been doing my best over the past few weeks to make my mind up on the issue. I am leaning towards a Remain vote at this moment in time, but I do have some serious misgivings both ways. https://twitter.com/Sarcrux/status/744814875067580416 I had a good discussion with @BenTinyShaw on Twitter today about the pros and cons. He’s pro-leave, but not
