I read the translated version of “The Three-Body Problem” by Cixin Liu recently, and enjoyed it immensely. If you like Sci-Fi, give it a read. I’m working through the second book in the same seriesThe Dark Forest albeit a bit slowly. My slow pace notwithstanding, it is a great book.

Love the intensity! Good doggo.
There’s been a number excellent games out lately. Hollow Knight has been extremely well done. Great artwork music and atmospheric gameplay. Divinity 2 was outstanding - a great RPG. Then for something a bit different, I’ve been enjoying the early release of Slay the Spire. The graphics are a bit rough, and the game isn’t done - but it’s fun and easy to play.
The Atlantic has a great article about the success of craft beer over the last decade. As an ardent fan of small craft breweries it’s delightful to read of their success against the duo-headed behemoth InBev and MillerCoors. I suspect that the craft beer market will cool at some point, and there will be contraction, perhaps with a number of craft breweries going out of business or getting bought out by the big players…we’ve already seen this to a degree already. Where it really get’s interesting, is the legalization of weed. I think InBev and Coors are more worried about that then the craft breweries. We’ll see.
I’ve been on a tear of good books lately. Currently, reading All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doer. Excellent book thus far.
I got a copy of Artemis over Christmas. This is Andy Weir’s second novel after “The Martian”. An easy and enjoyable read - albeit somewhat shallow. I enjoyed the technical details quite a bit, the challenges of surviving on a moon base are interesting to read. The rest of the book was OK.
Why does this make me smile so?
Trying to get my website going for the upteenth time. No longer self-hosting, I’ve got a virtual server in “the cloud”. Dropped Wordpress, and am trying a static site generator, in this case Hugo. It seems fast, I just need to learn how to use it.
