Dante said it best 'A bunch of savages in this town'.

What kind of world is it where a bunch of teenagers have nothing better to do than smash up a shop. I can't believe that scumbags like this are allowed to wander the streets.

Suffice to say it is the one thing in my life I would change in a heartbeat. I know people will say that it's within my power to change my own position, and I am trying, but the world is not very forgiving of silly mistakes made in employment choices over the years.

That said I am looking forward, not due to any half-baked new year's resolution that I'll forget in a few weeks time, but as a result of my re-invigorated focus on things that really matter to me.

I've spent the last few months finally getting my head around Linux, something which I have been meaning to do for nearly 7 years now. Now I'm up to speed with it and plunging neck deep into C++ and KDevelop (another thing on...
