So in the lead up to the Christmas holidays I treated myself by allowing a little light gaming with OpenTTD.
So after a few unsuccessful battles with VPN options I reimplemented my SSH Tunnel solutions.
So after getting very annoyed at my HTC Desire constantly running out of space due to all the unremovable apps on the phone memory I snapped last night and rooted the phone.
House move 95% almost complete, so felt my excuses for not blogging are gone.
So I have an excuse for my current absence from here as I am currently without internet at home due to moving house and Virgin taking ages to reconnect me. Apparently they have to disconnect the no longer present tenants service before they can connect mine so should be online at home later this week.
So after slightly longer than intended I have decided to continue my personal podcast as a weekly show.
Hi all, once again my blog has kind of slipped off my radar but I am still here with a load of half written posts.
So while I have no personal insight to offer or experience it feels appropriate to mention the passing of Steve Jobs here.
So my CreativePact is half way through and I am yet to miss a podcast though it has got close a few times. I have found the daily podcast challenging to do but fun, though at times the content could have been better.
So havent posted here for a while due to the pressure of my #creativepact podcast. It has been a lot of fun podcasting everyday of September so far and its been interesting to follow over peoples blogs as well.
So after a couple of weeks of planning I am ready to start my 2011 Creative Pact on the 1st of September. Am planning on making a podcast every day for the whole of September. You can track my progress online at podcast.scotthewitt.co.uk where you can also subscribe to podcast for free as well.
So I had a small holiday this weekend to attend a wedding in the north east, and my grandfathers 90th birthday, a fun garden party with a whole load of family was brillant.
A really interesting video of the experiences of some photographers shooting in central London.
Well season 1 of the AudioPodcast has come to an end. Have really enjoyed presenting the show this season and look forward to the start of season 2.
So as September comes on to the horizon so does the annual Creative Pact.
So with the Graduate venue finished I spent today enjoying the unConf, a poster session and Graham Booths demo session.
So Wednesday started quietly and then got crazy.
Today was a busy day of setup in the Graduate working to bring together the final evening performances in the Graduate. We had some problems to solve technically but me managed to fix all the problems.
So today was a good day at ICMC 2011 the unconf was enjoyable with an interesting discussion about physical user interface though to be honest I felt that little original ground was covered. There was also a discussion about building a unified submission system which I was surprised to discover did not currently exist.
Well today was the first day of the unConf which was interesting and featured some exciting discussion and exchanges. You can see a list of proposed topics from today on the unConf site.
So sound checks underway in the graduate going ok though we had a DI box explode which was exciting.
So after all the planning the first day actually arrived.
So today was a rest day from ICMC setup as we managed to get the venues sorted ahead of time.
So completed the setup of the graduate with staging, and audio all set just lighting to sort out Sunday afternoon.
So while Terminator 4 was an ok movie and not hard work towatch, the start of ICMC was frantic hard work and successful I think.
So more ICMC setup today, was mainly working in the Graduate venue with the rigging for the later concerts and the unconf gigs.
So since starting to podcast myself more seriously on The Audio Podcast and Whats on Podcast show a couple people have asked me what my favorite podcasts are.
Enjoyed putting together the audio podcast this week (a day early) with Samuel Freeman and guest Scott Mclaughlin.
So after a couple of weeks work, significantly longer than intended I have moved my blog across from Simple PHP Blog to WordPress. Why? Well I wanted to offer the opportunity for people to comment and found that Simple PHP Blog was not very effective in doing that.
So this next week HELOpg has two dates booked.
On behalf of the Audio Podcast I spent today at the Music Production Show in Leeds.
So HELOpg have been invited to perform as part of the Holmfirth Film Festival May 25th 2011.
At the inclusive improv Improv Improv Session (Tuesday 10th May 2011) I performed using my iPad for the first time using two apps;
Had an enjoyable time performing at the first Clunk event this week in musical collaboration with Samuel Freeman, Scott McLaughlin and Eilon Morris alongside some physical improvisors from Huddersfield. Was an interesting evening and I understand then intend to do more events which should be great.
Every now and again I find it useful to build word clouds of some of the websites I am responsible for its a good way of seeing the trending words within the front page of the site.
So with new found love of podcasting I have launched two more weekly podcast firstly the Huddersfield Whats on Podcast a weekly guide to events and gigs in Huddersfield UK. This has proven to be a lot of fun and very enjoyable to do I never realised how much stuff happens until I went looking for it.
An exciting new project under way theaudiopodcast.
Have been looking into others forms of improvisation to complement my musical activities.
So this year I have decided to launch a number of new projects of the course of the year, not that I am loosing focus with ongoing projects just that I have a number of projects that I have been sitting on for a while and I would like to get going on them.
