Wow man, it has been ages since I contributed in any way towards my blog. I suppose it cannot be called a blog as a blog gets updated. This, I’m afraid, has not been the case with my little home on the web.
I’ve updated the back end of WordPress to the latest version and while I was at it, I realized that the theme I was using would have looked good back in my younger days or, worse yet, the days of Geocities. In light of that, an update and change was needed. I scratched deep & hard, not to mention thought about it for quite some time(about 3 minutes) and decided on dropping all fancy crap and instead go with a smooth, responsive and open look.
I might, at some point, decide to add more images and perhaps a real logo but until that day decides to roll in, this will be the future. If I’m really honest with myself I can admit that the old logo looked horrible. I’m not even sure if you can call it a “logo” by today’s standards. Heh, what a flop.
Work has been insanely busy lately. But busy in the best sense of the word: Toys. I’ve been getting new toys every week and have been worse than a kid at Xmas. I have been actively involved in the Raspberry Pi scene and with that came some really interesting projects.
But, more of that in a while.
Well, well, well
I haven’t updated this blog in ages. Between work and life things have been rather hectic. Is this a good enough reason not to share my discoveries? Surely not?
I’ve updated WordPress to the latest version and will do something about this horrible theme. My goal is to create a theme from scratch but seeing that my time management has been off-by-one-kanobi, I will most likely rip a pre apart and construct something from the ruins.

Sept. 10th is the Internet Slowdown
Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. To fight back, let’s cover the web with symbolic “loading” icons, to remind everyone what an Internet without net neutrality would look like, and drive record numbers of emails and calls to lawmakers.
Are you in?
If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown:http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
It’s been coming for a while. The previous theme was just, well let’s call it, “not my best work”.
This means I have no excuse to be active on this little spot. There’s a lot of stuff I need to get out of my head before it explodes. However, work comes first.

I decided that it’s time to break away from otwww.net and figured, why not in the Cyber as in the Real?
So, here we go.
Busy moving everything over and will then at some point redirect http://zaptoid.owntheworldwideweb.net to http://www.zz9.co.za.
