I’m 83% through Shades of Grey (Unabridged) by Jasper Fforde, narrated by Gareth Armstrong.


A humble brag
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2016, 4:07 pm
I’ve always enjoyed the offerings from Humble Bundles and I have purchased a large number of deals from the website in the last few years. Mostly for 1 maybe 2 of the games in each bundle and I have a healthly game backlog growing So when the monthly subscription was announced I was more than happy to give it […]


Facing Diablo
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2016, 5:57 pm
Yesterday evening I complete the main 5 Acts of Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls, I have to say I really enjoyed the story even if there was no clear plot device for me showing up and smashing everyone’s pots and vases to shit. My barbarian is now level 55 and primed to hit adventure […]


Forged online
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 January 2016, 3:51 pm
In the last week we’ve upgraded our Monitors and Graphics cards and have been enjoying playing games in proper widescreen and without as much glitchiness. Plus I get to say “My new years resolution is 1920 by 1080” 😉 I’ve been trying to remember to run Forge when I’m playing a game it supports, for […]


Having a GameBlast
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 January 2016, 3:17 pm
After wanting to take part in a charity gaming event for some time, I decided that this was the year to stop talking and get doing. So rounded up a few people to take part in SpecialEffect’s GameBlast16 event. Running between the 26th-28th of February 2016  it’s the UK’s largest charity gaming marathon weekend! During this period we […]


Into 2016 we stride
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 December 2001, 7:00 pm
Happy New Year bloggers, well it’s about time for my annual blog reboot post. But first up is my recap on the last few months of 2015. Games I’ve continued to play Dirty Bomb, leveling up to around 9, the leveling in the game is good damn slow. I’m not completely sure why the game […]


am ambivert?
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2015, 4:04 pm
I enjoy being part of a group and happy to take the lead in meetings so I’ve never considered myself to be a strong introvert. However the definition of strong extrovert isn’t a definition that I would say describes me either as I’ve gone days with talking to anyone, and enjoy peace and quiet. I’m a little from column […]


Like not my favourite
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 November 2015, 12:55 am
5 Days before my 8th Twttr birthday they announced that they were rebranding Favourite to Like, apparently it’s part of “the company’s latest effort to simplify the user experience as it looks to attract new users”, which translates into what? We want to be like Facebook so people can sign up and find out it’s nothing […]


2015 part 4
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 November 2015, 11:42 am
Happy November everyone and good luck to those of you attempting the NaNoWriMo this year. It’s been a busy few months, the unrelenting stream of work which I had hoped would die down has naturally done the complete opposite. The winter months tend to be more relax so fingers crossed on that front. Additionally I am […]


Meanwhile … (3 months)
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 August 2015, 1:10 am
So seeing as I’m not really been posting properly for a few months I have likely skipped a few bits and bobs, so here a recap of some key things that have happened this year so far: I bought a car, the one I had before was having electrical issues so I bit a huge […]


4.3 update
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2015, 1:01 pm
I updated to WP 4.3 yesterday and found that one of my plugins ceased working, it also stopped the website from loading, both the blog and admin pages. So I decided that I would raise a ticket to let the developer know there was an issue with the plugin: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cannot-redeclare-get_language_attributes?replies=2#post-7315181 I’m very happy that the […]


Hangout to dry?
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2015, 4:39 pm
I remembered when Google+ was hinted at as one of the best ways to use Google Hangout online. Well now Google have launched a standalone website for Hangouts at hangouts.google.com. I the guess it’s related to the alphabet shake up, but part of me wonders if it could be a signal toward the end of Google+, as for […]


Titansdone
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 August 2015, 8:19 am
Over the so called summer I have been watching the first series of Geek & Sundry’s TitansGrave  which has now come to it’s conclusion. The series was part of the TableTop season 3 that successful crowd funded in May last year, I was rather happy that the funding allowed for the RPG show to be […]


A mixture of things
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2015, 4:42 pm
My whistle stop update which maybe more than I have written in ages. Since my list post featured some music, I thought I’d share a little more with you. I can’t remember how but I discovered Postmodern Jukebox earlier this year and even though I don’t know/like all the songs I find the concept of […]


Everybody’s gone to the console?
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 August 2015, 6:53 pm
I hoped that Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture from ‘The Chinese Room’, would show signs of a release on the PC, but as we stand on the eve of the games launch it would seem the partnership with Sony Santa Monica means the game is Playstation 4 bound and no other platforms are in scope. The […]


And relax
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 August 2015, 5:54 pm
Tonight is the last night of our family holiday visiting my in-laws in Yorkshire. We have all had a wonderful time and it’s been rather relaxing, especially after the long hours that I’ve been working recently. Thankfully I’m not back in work until Monday, so once tomorrows 185 mile trip is complete I’ll have a […]


What July?
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:25 pm
Well I’ve finally reached the far side of the chaotic patterns at work thankfully. So I’m trying to get my brain into blogging once more. It’s weird when I think that this time last year I was gearing up for Blaugust. I’ve had such a busy 3 months my blogging hasn’t really started in earnest […]


The pharma’s in his den
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 June 2015, 8:16 am
Well the madness continues on the work front, to the point that of the 2 days I had off this week, I spend a large portion on my laptop and/or conference call. Typical. All of that aside on wednesday it was my birthday and I had a stack of lovely gifts, many board game related of course. […]


In which I dust off my blog
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 June 2015, 1:59 pm
The last three months have been very busy on the work front with a very tight deadline project that has been rather taxing, plus on call has been manic in May. Also I was diverting a lot of energy into driving lessons, theory and practical test preparations but happily I sat my driving test and passed on […]


All things me
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2015, 6:58 am
Here is my obligatory sorry I haven’t blogged anything for weeks post, hopefully to be more consistent from now on. To recap here is a short trip through my last month. Work Yay I managed to get the piece of work out of the door that I was working on, to say I underestimated the size […]


Too much work
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 February 2015, 3:01 pm
Well my blogging has taken a big hit as I’ve been a little overwealmed with a project at work that is creeping into my free time a little.  When that happens my blogging schedule is usually the first victim. Outside of the out of hours support that I usually do, I’m certainly not in favour […]


Friendly Bytes
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 February 2015, 5:24 pm
I recently followed the Twitter conversation and blog posts the last week which focused on discussion around online friendships, what they mean to people, experiences and how they rank against real-life relationships. You can read them here : Belghast – Braxwolf – Liore - ContainsModeratePeril While reading these I was reminded of a post that I wrote during the hectic month […]


Hidden in plain sight
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 February 2015, 9:12 am
The Secret World still remains one of my favourite MMO games, of course as with many titles games I’ve not played it in time but given the chance I’d return to the Secret World concealed within this one. I played from launch and even though there were a large number of us initially, the familiar faces soon […]


Excited, understatement!
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 February 2015, 1:20 am
So 18 months after my local phone exchange was converted, fibre to the cabinet that serves my phone line, has finally been completed. Which means I don’t have to keep checking the blasted website every week. Admittedly when I last contacted BT the indicated that the already stood cabinet may be completed by the end […]


The owls are not what they seem
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 February 2015, 3:30 pm
As much as the Steam Box is exciting and the idea of being able to access my game library on the couch is one that thrills me, the fact of the matter is everyone that I have talked too about having a SteamOS enabled living area, has pretty much indicated that they would most likely […]
