As mentioned briefly in my last post, the new geeky site/blog me and Rihards have been working on is live – hurray! So head over and take a peek, the design is my shenanigans, and all development and coding is done by Rihards.

(The new style still has to be transferred over to the forums however.)

Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard

I don’t visit The Onion nearly enough but I loved this :D

“It remains to be seen whether the wheel will catch on in the business world where people use computers for actual work and not just dicking around.”

In other news me and Rihards have been polishing off the finishing touches to a new site which will be something of a sister site to scrapbook, where I’ll be posting geekier items of interest, and less random non-design posts will crop up on scrapbook.

Two Thousand & Nine

2008 was actually a great year, it got a bit rubbish the last few months but that doesn’t really counter how amazing the rest was. My freelance work has continued successfully – I got to work with a lot of wonderful people, work on some varied and nice projects, all my worries regarding my apartment have vanished (have now been in over a year!), had a chance to visit Vienna again to see my good friend Rihards. All in all, it was an incredible year where I got to catch up with a lot of friends and realise just how great they are.

So basically this is just a big thank you, to everyone that has been in my life in 2008, for giving me a great year, and for helping me through the last few months when it’s been a little more pear-shaped.

Hopefully 2009 will pick up and become as good a year and maybe better than 2008 was for me :) And I’m aware I’ve not been posting any of my own design work or doodles on scrapbook lately, will change that over the next few months :)

So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone :)
