In 2015 (aka next year) SpiderOak is dropping their prices! Which is a good thing for us who are concern with privacy.

The new prices are as following (and even cheaper if you opt-in for the yearly plan):

  • 30GB for $7
  • 1TB for $12
  • 5TB for $25

These prices will not be made “public” before some time next year, but with the pricing2015 promo code you can start the upload fun now!

For those of you that don’t know what SpiderOak stands for:

SpiderOak provides the ability to utilize cloud technologies while retaining that precious right we call privacy. Our ‘zero-knowledge’ privacy environment ensures only you can see your data. No one else can gain access. Not our staff. Not a government. This orientation makes it impossible for us to betray your trust.

Another thing that happened on Wednesday was the release of a new WordPress update, this time it had a name, Dinah. WordPress 4.1 came with the theme Twentyfifteen, which you can now spot on this site. Pretty smooth isn’t it? Not that different from my last one, but the sidebar switched sides.

Also I’m going to try to add featured images to some of the posts, and clean up some of the old plugins I’ve had from the beginning. Such as the NextGen Gallery, it’s probably good, but it’s outdated on my blog and the old images and galleries are not working :\

Edit: Feature image has now been edited. NextGen Gallery has to wait till tomorrow or some other day. I’ve also added the title above the feature image, if it’s there. Pretty pleased with what I’ve managed. It’s a long time since I’ve worked with themes in WordPress.

See the preview page of my theme after the jump.

Birthday, kinda…

yesterday (not really)! It’s not seven years and one day since I first launched this blog! I’m pretty amazed and proud that I’ve manage to keep this project going for seven years. I haven’t managed to post every week (or every day as my first plan was to), but nearly every month, just missing July in 2011 and April in 2014. That is not bad.

I’m not that big of celebrating these blogdays, as I’ve only remembered it three times. First was of course in 2008, the first year, then again in 2009, and last time was in 2011, when I was, as today, one day late.

…so…yeah. I kinda got distracted working on a graph over all the posts over the years, because I wanted it to update live using some PHP and Javascript. Then it started to snow and I wanted to drive my RC car before going to bed.

So that is why this post is not longer…

PS: I’ll post some images from my car covered in snow tomorrow.

Arcadia Quest

So the second game I’ve kickstarted from CoolMiniOrNot is an adventure board game by Spaghetti Western Games called Arcadia Quest. I have no idea how it works, but it’s seems like a good option for role playing board games, that don’t need a game master. Plus the PvP options can open up some interesting stuff.

I took some images of the content I ordered, they didn’t turn out great, but you can look at the monsters. I’ll take some photos when I play the game, so you can also see it in action.

I should try to do a review of the games I have, that could be cool.

Kickstarter bonanza

If you’ve been following me on Instragram you probably noticed I got a pretty big haul of board games this week. I’ve been a big fan of Kickstarter for a long time, and last year I kickstarted Rivet Wars, which I’ve blogged about earlier. On Tuesday I got the rest of the kickstarter loot, complete with all the expansion and extra armies. Going to be a lot more action next time I play! Next post will be with images from what is inside all these boxes. So stay tuned for more Rivet Wars action.

On wednesday the game Arcadia Quest arraived  (from the same producers, Cool Mini or Not). I’m super stoked to try this out, but not sure when I will have time, maybe next weekend. I’ll show you what is inside these boxes tomorrow. First it’s Rivet Wars.

The new apartment

I started this post over two months ago, so sometimes it takes a really long time to finish something. As you may know my girlfriend and I bought an three room apartment at the end of September. We had been looking for a place since August 4th, and we finally found and one the bidding round on something be both liked! It’s hard work to find an apartment.

Not sure what to say about it, we been living her for over two months, and we are both very happy. It’s spacious (but not really enough for all the stuff I have), two floors, big bathroom, and three baloneys. There is no fireplace as in the old apartment, which I kinda miss now in the winter season, but the apartment is a lot warmer, which is nice.

As you can see from the image above, it’s not a apartment block, but rather an “old” fashioned house (town house style it said in the ad), built in 2006 with four apartments. One in the basement, one on the ground floor, and two apartments sharing half of first and second floor.
