Take Two

So, after starting this blog with hopes of documenting anything I found useful and to start to build a personal knowledgebase, I pretty much just left it alone. It popped into my head again today that it would be a useful thing to have. I had completely forgotten about the blog, so was a nice surprise to see that the work to set it up was already done!

Originally I had also intended to use the site as a sort of journal for any projects I am working on, and I still think this would be useful for a few reasons. I can post anything I found tricky to figure out so when I come across the same thing again I should hopefully be able to save myself some work, and maybe even the same for anyone who might find their way here. I also think that if I can get into the habit of posting then it might help keep some motivation going.

Unfortunately I completely lost interest in the last project I was starting on, but I may come back to this at a later time.

Current Projects

At the moment I am working on a couple of things, one is to do with my work/career and the other is more for fun.

Cisco CCNA Certification

So, this is the work one. I am studying toward CCNA Switching and Routing certification. I am very much interested in networking, and my job involves some networking work.

I have been trying to study this on and off for the last year, but really need to knuckle down and pick up some momentum with it and see it through.

Android Game Development with Unity

This is the fun one. I have recently started getting to grips with developing games using Unity, and have been really enjoying it. I have an idea for a game and have been working on it, learning as I go, and it is starting to take shape nicely.

I’ll (hopefully) post anything to do with these projects that I think could benefit someone else or that I think I would want to document for myself.

Introduction

Before I start posting random, potentially totally unrelated stuff here I guess I’d better give a brief introduction on why I created the site.

Knowledgebase

Quite often I have found that I spend a lot of time trying to figure out even the smallest problems that I come across while working, learning or even playing! Most of the time it’s something simple that is stopping me from carrying on whatever it is that I am trying to do.

I usually google these things hoping to find a quick solution but can end up spending hours sifting through different websites, forum posts and blogs before I eventually figure out how to fix whatever it is I am having trouble with.

These are the sorts of things I would like to post about here in the hopes that I can save other people that lost time and frustration by combining my experience with all the info I have found on that particular issue in one place.

I also tend to forget these things after a while even after all the time and effort spent to figure them out, so when I come across the same issue I have to work it all out again. So this site can serve as a sort of personal knowledgebase for myself at the very least.

Hopefully anything I write here can be of use to someone!

Projects

Another reason for the site is that I may post progress updates to do with any projects I might be working on. This could be web/programming stuff, or even gaming related. More than anything I hope posting updates might help keep me interested in whatever it is that I’m doing!
