Happy New Year Sequel
It’s now 2022 (or 2020 2, if you’re cheeky), and time for a blog-type announcement dealio: NebyooBlog, formerly here, is finally shutting down…
…so it can be integrated here ;P

Fly Like Venus: Unwound
The awesome rock band that I play in just (well, recently) released a second album! It’s called Unwound, and it’s a definite sophomore release: similar to the first release, but more experimental.

Sometimes Self-Hosting Services Satisfies Sufficiently
self-hosted, webdev, freshrss, homer, neb.host, wallabag, roundcube, drupal, linode, vue-js, minecraft, wordpress, jekyll-rb, hugo
Over the years, the way I’ve used the Internet has changed: initial discovery through a modem and AOL, creating my own little space on a local ISP’s at
/~username, always-on broadband in college, and then residential service that I’ve now had for nearly 2 decades. Once you’re online all the time, you start using it a lot more. I’ve used the popular services everyone else uses, like Google and Wikipedia, but also toyed with running my own services on some server somewhere, usually shared. Issues of privacy and security are definitely relevant here, but customization and control are even more important to me.

Recent Completed Sonic Output
In the past few months, I’ve been able to complete some new music, and I guess making a blog post about that is something people do, so…here it is.

Programming After 40
I’m 40 years-old and I’ve been working on dev of some sort or another for two-and-a-half decades. I have a reliable career, but still have time to work on toy projects for fun when I want, and yet lately…I have not been interested.

The Musical Road Ahead, 2021 Edition
All right. It’s 2021. I’ve been making music since I was a teenager back in the mid-90s. I’m now 40 years-old and have finished dozens of releases in a variety of styles. What else is there to do?
Well, I’m glad I asked myself that!

On Being Nebyoolaeous
I first legitimately played a guitar in high school, sometime in the mid-1990s. A friend of mine had brought an acoustic guitar to school for some kind of talent/show-and-tell kind of thing, and I remember being quite impressed. I’d never really had much interest in learning any kind of music instrument up to that point, except for maybe the drums. However, drums had three issues: s p a c e, price, and loudness. Unfortunately, they required too much of each.

Work, Work, Work
drupal, drupal7, drupal8, redesign, update, work, angular, symfony, mongodb, typescript, prototyping
Has it really been almost three years since I last rapped at ya? I think the post title explains it best: I’ve been working at work on work, and so not much personal coding has occurred.

New Album, New Persona
Say hello to Fench.
For the April 2020 RPM Challenge, I decided to make a new persona. It’s my pop rock persona, for making songs with actual lyrics and singing. And a month-long deadline to get my first release done seemed like as good a time as any to go forward with it.
