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.
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).
