Yet Another New Project

In typical Erik fashion, I’ve found yet another project I want to do. For Christmas my parents gave me a 26” LCD TV that I’d wanted to use to watch TV in my office since I’d been using my 3rd LCD for that and I wanted to be able to actually use that LCD. For awhile I’ve been looking for a way to raise the new TV off my desk high enough to reach over my current LCDs, but all of the arms I’d found wouldn’t raise the TV high enough. I finally decided that I’d have to go with a wall mount (I was avoiding it because I didn’t want to put holes in the wall, bother finding studs, etc), so I went to Best Buy the day after Christmas to get one. They had some wall mount brackets on sale that supported 15-37” TV’s, so I picked up one of those. While I was thinking about it, I thought I might as well get two and set up a second wall mount screen since I had to get it all set up for one anyway.

Meet my new office setup, dubbed “The Command Center”!

Switching OS Tech

I’ve decided to try and change up the tech I’m using for my OS. Originally I thought I wanted to use C (possibly C++) and clang to write the OS, but I think I’d rather try to write it in Go instead. I ported my StarCraft II replay library Zamara to Go (go.Zamara) and had a bunch of fun doing it. I don’t think I’ve had as much fun working with a language since C# originally grew on me (I hated it at first).
