Mechanical Keyboard

A few days ago I had to work from home, and this made me realize and appreciate how much I love my mechanical keyboard. At work I use a CM Storm Quick Fire Cherry MX Blue, while at home (desk only, since normally I’m just using a laptop) I use an old A1048 Apple Keyboard. It […]

Blocking Facebook and YouTube

Although I didn’t mentioned it as being one of my New Year’s Resolution. This year I’m opting to limit myself wasting time in social media sites, in particular YouTube and Facebook.

Bye 2017

2017 has been a the year that I went full blown Tolkien. Although I must admit, this year has been one of my poorest reading years in terms of quantity, but of quality, that’s a different story. Another cool thing that happened this year was my purchase of an awesome Sauron statue. In terms of […]

The battery would still charge perfectly fine, however with some light usage; it only lasted about an hour before it fully drained completely. […]

Happy 10 years!

A Beautiful Irony

They’re very few things that can captivate me emotionally. This fan made video is one of those few. I’ve started reading The Silmarillion over the weekend, and the very first story in the book is called Ainulindalë. This story describes how the world in which Middle-earth resides in, was originally created. The beautiful irony of […]
