A Touch of Grey

Spotify

Last October (2018) I created a Spotify playlist named “A Touch of Grey” inspired by the Grateful Dead song of the same name. Yesterday I opened it up and found it had 6 followers. Which is cool, I really wasn’t expecting that, later it turned to 7 and this morning 9.

That’s pretty cool, I thought. Sure would be nice if there was a way to see if any of those followers are friends or random people. But, alas, it doesn’t tell you who they are.

Since people are finding it and apparently liking it, I decided to add it here.

Enjoy!

Meat’s back on the menu

Lord of the Rings

In “The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers”, movie, not the book. Early on Merry and Pippin are captives of a band of Oruki Orcs and goblin men.

They have been running for days without stop, food or drink and one of the goblin men is getting HANGRY. He decides that it will be okay to just cut off the hobbits arms or legs to eat. After all, they are being carried anyway, the hobbits don’t need them.

This is in direct contradiction to the orders of Saruman and leads to that goblin being killed by one of the orcs, who exclaims:

Meat’s back on the menu, boys!

Oruki Warrior

Wait a tick? Menu? Orcs know what a menu is?

Well if they do, it stands to reason that they have been in a restaurant. Which poses an interesting question. What, exactly, does a restaurant in Mordor look like?

I’m picturing something dank, with terrible lighting and even worse appetizers. Probably decent beer though. One thing is beyond certain however. They all require reservations.

One does not simply walk into a Mordor restaurant.

Hello world!

I’m Back Baby!!!

–Bender

If you’re reading this you probably stumbled on it by accident and have no idea who I am, and that’s perfectly okay. This page is mainly for me anyway.

In the past I’ve had several blogs on various topics, the longest was a technical blog. Little more than notes on various things programming or Linux related. At some point I forgot about it, then thought I had taken it down, then actually did take it down.

Ever since I took it down, its been on my mind. It was up for years, and full of useful information. Something that I hope to accomplish here, again. It’s good to be back.

Before I move on to writing other posts — there are a lot floating through my head at the moment — you probably want to know what this Kodiċi Systems is, yes?

Well, it’s literally nothing. Kodiċi is a Maltese word for code, that I am most likely using completely out of context and improperly. Years ago I had the idea of spinning off a side business, providing support to local businesses in both IT, Web and App development. It was biting off more than I could chew. A demanding full time job and a family. There is only so much I’m willing to sacrifice and time with my wife and kids aren’t in that pool. Ever since I’ve been sitting on this domain, why not put it to use?

So that’s it, my reintroduction to the web is complete. A few more configuration items to complete, then blogging time.
