Direct: 9/25/2020

I’m kidding about the title, don’t worry, you didn’t miss a Nintendo Direct. And even if you did, it’s probably just another Wii U port.

This has been a quiet but certainly busy month from me, in regards to this site and things, so I figured I would write this post as a recap of sorts and a preview of what could be to come.

First of all, the obvious: since the last post I’ve been in school, and trying to break some procrastination habits– though, apparently, that can’t keep me from calling it for the rest of a Friday night to write a blog post. Hey, there’s still a lot of work to be done. Figuratively, and literally.

With that said, here’s what I’ve been up to in and around September 2020 thus far:

  • AutoSite is now on Since it’s RC4 and they took that for a beta version, there are no options for reviews. I do kinda wish those 2 AV false positives were resolved too. (I sent RC3 to BitDefender back when I submitted to Softpedia a month or so ago. Sending RC4 wasn’t necessary afterwards, if I recall correctly.) In any case, it’s getting out there. Would like to do more stuff for it as it gets cooler.
Alas, I must be known as Dotcomboom, not dotcomboom or DOTCOMBOOM.
  • I want to put more stuff on this blog (or tumblog, depending on the time of day). It’s easy for me to get hung up on topics and what I’m gonna write about instead of straight up going for it. Speaking of which, I wrote a post earlier in the month for the group blog about my Android and Termux-based IRC bouncer setup that I’ve been meaning to do since June so if you haven’t read that, you may do so here. Excuse the technobabble.
  • Truth be told, I’ve been practice doodling more. Mainly fluffy things because I guess that’s the kinda person I am now. Noticably, a particular Lince on my revised homepage:
Ah ye. (9-5/9-7)
Notebook sketches of Beo, a Neopet of mine. Confident little rascal. (9-14)
Quick rough of a possible arctic fox lad? (9-24)

Definitely gonna share more, when the time comes. Get some more little drawings on my site, make an interests page, keep that place from getting too rusty. Gonna be good. Branching out, trying new things, gaining confidence. That’s been the goal for this year, and it’s finally starting to pay off in these couple of months. Love it.

  • Escargot got a board on a new forum, that’s pretty cool. And I have a gut feeling we might have WLM 2009 by the end of the year. Sure, it might have been the same gut feeling I had in 2018 and 2019 but that doesn’t mean I can’t still be excited for it!
  • Caby and Borb graced me on the 17th with some lovely birthday art! Click to view the images full-size.
  • I’ve been playing on Somnol’s newly resurrected whitelisted Minecraft servers, this time on Beta 1.7.3 (my new favorite Minecraft version as of late; you don’t need more mobs than there are Pokรฉmon to have a good time, lads) for survival and 1.8.9 for creative. If you’re cool and hang around our IRC, who knows, you might be able to join us. We’ll have a page to showcase what’s up there on our main site, keep your eyes peeled for that. The spirit of 2011 will never die.
My house on the right (bit obscured here), and the deck I built on a hill. I tunneled up through the hill into a cave and then built the out of a hole on the side. I love Beta’s hills.
Somnoville at night, as of now. Cammy recently put glowstone into the roads and the view from above is stunning.
Beta didn’t have such luxuries as a brightness slider, so keeping your world and builds well lit is a necessity for those cold, dark nights. I need to stock up on torches and eventually make it into the Nether myself to snag some of that stuff.
  • I’ve been thinking about 0x10c and listening to its music a lot. Might be a loose topic for a post in the future, not sure yet. Also wrote a bit about my X230 Tablet, that might surface sooner or later.
  • I did a little bit of overdue tidying to w2krepo and added a changelog.
  • This video. My kryptonite.
  • Some Ceramics classwork:
cat ๐Ÿ‘ mug ๐Ÿ‘ gato ๐Ÿ‘ mug

I’d like to do this more, like a rough recap of where I’ve been and where I’m at each month. I get to put up some things I wouldn’t have otherwise outside of my smaller circles, and I can sorta keep track of it better as time goes on.

Homework tomorrow! Fortunately not a crazy amount, unless I make it that way. Then Minecraft. Then getting destroyed by Cammy at Tetris maybe. Willpower, lads.

    Speaking of, do you wanna have one of your drawings included in the art recap for this month? It’d be real neat~
