Dawn to Dusk

Hello world!

Posted in Uncategorized by acuthbert on August 20, 2006

Welcome to my blog! Why ‘Dawn to Dusk’? I guess a blog called ‘acuthbert’ didn’t sound like it would have much to say about anything! I suppose neither does Dawn to Dusk but hey, at least it sounds poetic.

I’m a man of projects. Like all men my projects often get started and never finished. I believe the person who coined the phrase ‘fad’ was a disgruntled wife tired of counting the cost of endless cycle of new projects. Now I wouldn’t call all my projects ‘fads’ however even so a fad can be a good thing. Keeping to the same-old-same-old is not a way to expand the mind and with mounting evidence that you either use it or loose it (mentally speaking) I’m keen to broaden any horizon I can find.

I heard recently that you can tell all about a person from how the organise and manage their email inbox. Well I think you can learn a lot about a man by analysing his fads. Here’s some of mine, past and present:

  • Programming (not really a fad – it’s my main hobby and livelyhood and will no doubt keep me entertained until the wee small hours)
  • Electronics. I used to love building circuits on the old breadboard, especially if it involved ICs (microchips to the uninitiated). I once built a remote control light turning off thing, but alas when they started appearing on the shelves (in packages about a hundredth the size of mine!) I consigned the project to the attic. My electronics hobby went with it.
  • Growing Veggies. I love my veggie patch. Sadly so do anonymous creatures that eat them during the night.
  • Composting. A new one this – and hopefully one I’ll keep up. Totally fasinated watching green stuff turn to em, brown stuff.
  • Ethically living. Okay, okay – I’m not exactly the model green warrior but I’m keen to improve and champion the cause.

So, that’s some of the ideas that churn about in me old noggin. I should also mention that I’m a deep thinker on all subjects philosophical, but more about that later!
