Borrowed an electric guitar from a friend, picked up a tone cable, and downloaded Rocksmith 2014 from Steam… 4 days before an half price offer ??Doh!

Loving the tunes and learning curve, and am trying to commit to playing each day, thinking I put so much time into games I might as well learn real skills 🙂

The first song i played was by The Ramone’s, and I put this down to destiny due to the modded switch on the borrowed guitar shows “Ramones and Treble” settings

Out of the next few songs were 2 bands from Sheffield; I was hooked!

  • Video tutorials are effective, with applied tests of what has just been taught afterwards
  • Arcade style games are a great way to become familiar with strings, frets, and chords

My playing is improving daily, and I’ve promised myself a nice guitar if I keep up the practice.
Let’s see how long it will last… with 1,000 songs now available it could be quite a while \m/

Off to find the Discworld


I’ve been playing about with some python code, having creating a few (useless) Reddit bots, I might look to publish the code as sure others would like to do similar… although all my code is pretty much plagerised from a variety of different sources 🙂

So I’ve been on another break from Elite:Dangerous. Returning to Siddha I didn’t fancy trading, and the conflict zones nearby have dried up, so I’ve decided to make a sojourn to the Terry Pratchett memorial station.

Typing Pratchett into the Navigation search pulls up system HIP 51980, 20 jumps away.

I’ve kitted my Clipper out with D class modules, scanners, and a fuel scoop, and I’m off for a looksie.

I’ll send a postcard, Nanny Ogg style 🙂

edit: Bollocks, rule number 765, never trust the Navigation search 🙂
Pratchett City is a landing stage, not large enough to land my Clipper at HIP 51980.

Pratchett Disk is in system HIP 74290, ~311 Light Years from Pratchett City, eh oh, only 24 jumps
