2014 on Instagram

Inspired by my friend Christina, and since this is my first year with Instagram, I want to make a “My year on Instagram”. So keep on reading and see the four best photos of each months.

As I didn’t registered on Instagram before April; January, February, and March are both blank.

So welcome to April, the first picture I’ve added to Instagram.

I started working on my apartment, making it ready for sale.

I also got Rivet Wars in April!

I passed my Scrum Certification exam.

If you want to continue reading, hit the “more” button. There is going to be a lot more images in this post.

With this post I want to try something new, and that is to start write some small reviews of the board games I have. Not sure of the quality or if this will be a good source for reviews, but it will be what it will be. Let’s start!

A few weeks ago I received the fantasy RPG Arcadia Quest by Cool Mini or Not and Spaghetti Western Games, which is a board game I Kickstarted back in March. I mostly pledged for it because CoolMiniOrNot was behind it, the same company behind Rivet Wars (an awesome war game for two players), so I didn’t know what I was getting, other then that there where cool chibi miniatures in it.

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 Such as the NextGen Gallery, it’s probably good, but it’s outdated on my blog and the old images and galleries are not working :\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.
