Oh dear, me and my poor semi-abandoned blog. I’ve been busy this last few months, but in general I’d much rather do things than document them. I got a regular part-time development job which is going quite well, all will be revealed about that when the project is completed. I’ve also been doing some other bits of freelancing and occasionally hacking away on my own projects – I have a backlog of 12 apps to make now, many of which are half-finished. The urge to knock out a few tracks is building. This is old news but I didn’t want to write it: hearing problems have put the nail in the coffin of my performing career, just in case you were wondering.
