And so it begins...

March 16, 2009 | categories: Me

So yet again, I am starting a blog. I've tried general blogs before and never stuck at them, but since I've done a few smaller blogs, internal to forums and stuff, and managed to stick with them, I think the time is ripe to have another go. I'm not limiting myself on topics which I'll post on, but they'll probably all end up being on the same topics.

So I suppose I should start with a bit about my interests.

  • Gaming. I play a wide variety of games, nowadays mostly on PC, but I still have a good few 360 games. My current favorites are Team Fortress 2 and Runescape. Team Fortress 2 is a really polished and humourous game and with the recent updates, has gotten even better. My favorite addition? The sandwich. Om nom nom. Nom nom nom.

    It wins the award for most epic video game sound effect ever. As for Runescape, well, you either love it or hate it.

  • Programming. I am a hobbyist programmer. I've done a lot in PHP, Javascript, C# and Java. My favorite language to program in definitly has to be Javascript, especially when paired with jQuery.
  • Reading. Sci-fi mainly. My current favorite book is either Time's Eye by Arthur C. Clarke, or The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

So that's about it for now. Enjoy the blog, anyone who decides to read it. The title is Macha Mackha, after the username I wanted, Macha (based on the cat in .hack//sign) and the username I took (Machka)1 because Macha was taken. I'm not usually a fan of anime, but I really liked .hack//sign.
