THIS IS WARDSTER LOVE – REACHING OUT
Well its been a while since i wrote a blog i prefer the video blogs now, thats just me being lazy! Been fairly busy with work and as well as getting the ubuntu HD5 phone and ubuntu M10 tablet which has been great just what ive been waiting for we also got ubuntu 16.04 LTS so i decided to re-setup my laptop and home media server as well as adding a back up server using the built in back up service in ubuntu which i have to say was breeze to setup and should have done it a long time ago! Sorting out my music collection and files from scratch has been a mission but all went great. Im using owncloud for file and contact / calendar sync which installs on all the devices and just works great. Im now using emby media server which kicks the ass out of plex for lots or reasons and transmision server for the occasional torrent. Zoneminder for the cameras is the best, rock solid and works well remotely and never burps once you have got over the semi hard task of setting it up with all its niggles with php zones and mysql config files.
Been back and forth to spain as usual and just love the place. Ill be posting some new photos for you to see of malaga and the castle there. Malaga central has to be one of the places to visit. I watch TV and its all marbella this, marbella that! you never visited spain till you been in land and enjoyed spain for what it really is not whats its glammed up to be on TV, as its not all like that trust me.
Band wise ive been out of the picture for a 6 month break and working on my own stuff which has been great, got myself another alembic bass which i love specially for the amount of different noises it makes for recording, ill be putting some stuff out again soon. Ive rolled rubber soul of now and looking around for other bands to mingle and and take a step back and let others do the work! have to say ive had a great time playing with the lads, pauls a good friend and frank getting on as they say and ready for retirement sure kicks the ass out of a lot of drummers ive worked with, style wise can play anything and timing wise cant be beat, great vocalist to. Ive been asked about reunions with old bands which for one im not interested – i dont have time for people who for one are sneaky, underhanded, not loyal and just trouble makers. So on that one get what i created and shove it were the sun dont shine its had its day, talk about flogging a dead horse. Any way to the future and the new music im creating and the new musical experiences i can encounter and new pubs not just the one that will book you.
Now i know all the good people in my life i keep them near, all the others i have for sure rejected and want nothing to do with.
Love, peace and happiness to all the ones i love and karma to the bitches i hate, you know you are.
My round up for 2013 comes up in three categories as my blog is about > linux, life and music
Linux, my main operating system and knowledge has been in linux from around 1995. I switched to a mac a couple of years ago and still swear by the macs and ipads, iphone as they are pretty damn bullet proof, but just to closed for me and not my main line of expertise. I switched the iphone 4s for a nexus 4 and the macbook pro 15 for a dell sputnik ubuntu edition 13 laptop. Im almost a year into them both and more than happy with the pair of them. The last android i ran was one of the first google androids and it was far from polished and chewed battery like nobodys business! The nexus 4 has for me blown my iphone out of the water in ease of use and usability for myself, the iphone bandwagon just seems all about upgrading were as im at the end of contract with the 4 and im really not that bothered about the nexus 5 im really happy with the 4 so im going to get two years out of the nexus were the iphone was a yearly thing!. I would strongly suggest to iphone converts to look at the nexus if not the samsung amazing phones. The dell was a big jump from the macbook as the macbook is a workhorse…. im a year in and upgraded to the next OS with ubuntu and its solid, i cant believe how muck linux has come on! ubuntu has more features than the mac for me and is tailored to my needs. The laptop is slick eats the macbook and any other laptop ive touched. The dell hardware is excellent great screen, great keyboard, great build and compact well balanced and light still with a great feel of quality with the carbon fibre bottom and aluminium top and back lit keyboard. Im thinking the main technology that matches and betters the system i was suing on mac which was iCloud is ubuntu one which has work seamlessly for files, music and photo back up from devices, its that good i upgraded the service at 15 pounds per year for 20 gigs of spacea and streaming music to any device which works great. Also google services for calendering, contacts works flawlessly and keep or evernote for note keeping you cant go wrong as you can use the services on any device ubuntu / android mac, iphone even windows if you need to! All apps i require our now available for ubuntu and mainly all from the app centre. Take a look if your looking at a mac / windows alternate.
No matter what flavour be ubuntu, red hat or android – linux is linux
Life, life is good and been through some major changes in the past 6 months which i dont feel i need to go to far into but im happy and this past 6 month has given me time to realise who are friends and who are the people i love. Things and time change and you have to look at a person as a individual and think about what’s best for them thats when you realise that we all have a life and you should think long and hard before just condemning and blaming somebody. Any way im great and have taken time to realise the people who are dont need and people who i could never integrate and trust again, it seem a shame that some of the people that have been in my life for so long will not be part of my life anymore from 2014 i can only wish them all the best for the new year and the rest of there lives. One thing is i know im fully dedicated to music now and learnt a lot about myself and people around me recently and i just take each day as it comes as you never know what can happen from one day to the next. All i can say keep true to yourself, keep respectful and focused and love the ones who love you and think about you.
xx peace for the new year and great prospects xx
Music, well im full on playing guitar full time and vocal fronting up my band rubber soul which has forked of to a acoustic duo called revival. I love both outfits as the band just runs hassle free and love the music and professionalism and true loyalty im music and friendship within the band. The acoustic duo just has space that we just love no backing tracks just pure acoustic guitar and bass and vocal harmonies to show of the real musicianship between us. Im really happy i took up guitar and slide guitar last year and plan to move forward next year with a load of new songs for both outfits and going to finish of my own album which ive layed down most of the base of the songs already!! keep your ears peeled….
I love bealtles, blues, 60’s and rock and roll and jimi hendrix
