Alaric’s projects for this year (by )

This year's going to be pretty busy with settling into the new home, but I have a few projects.

  1. Finish the ring casting I nearly finished before the move. That's a priority.
  2. Resurrect my aluminium foundry. In particular, it's our bronze wedding anniversary, so Sarah's going to design a pattern for a sundial, which I will cast in Aluminium bronze, a nice alloy that I can make myself from my scrap aluminium and bits of old plumbing...
  3. Continue with minor stuff on Ugarit, but as a milestone, build the distributed storage backend, which will rock.
  4. Work on my wearable computer project. No specific milestone for this, as it's currently a long drawn out research/prototyping phase as I sort out many details.

Wish me luck... I usually suffer from "all my weekends getting eaten up", but as my New Year's Resolution has been to spend at least one day every two weeks doing something fun with my children, I'm going to be booking weekend days in my calendar in advance through the year for that and my own projects. Before they get filled up!

    Good luck. Perhaps we should try to book project time together so that we can benefit from the mutual motivation.

    Good idea! Suggest weekends from March onwards... Feb is reserved for painting/waterproofing/draughtproofing the workshop and getting Internet access in there 🙂

    Hi Alaric. If getting the new warhead server up and running is not likely to happen any time soon, could you please attach my USB drives to the current server so the disk space can be used? Thanks, Maurice
