Busy as busy is.

Just over 2 months ago I started a new job, I knew it was going to be tough but I live for the challenge and the satisfaction of the results, what I did not expect was a job that would require my entire attention and energy. Don’t get me wrong I love what I am doing, it’s just that everything else has taken a back seat and is being put on hold…
My plan at this time is to do 1 review a month, where it will be published, I can’t say but I will publish the location here.
Further than that I can’t promise anything, I had big plans for this site but I doubt I’ll have time this year.

The year is dead, long live the new year

This year was one of mixed feelings; I started a podcast and had to say goodbye to it for a while. It will be back in a new format, when I cannot say, I am still working on that. I also started to review more photography related equipment, enjoyed every minute of it, and I will do more but not as frequently as I did in 2013.

You may ask, and I have been asked, what happened? In short, life happened, in November I took a new position at a company called Global Payment Technologies as a software architect, little did I know how much work there was to be done. I am enjoying the challenge thoroughly but that also meant that other aspects of my life would suffer since I derive no income from this blog, in fact, it costs me to host and review, it had to take a back seat.

I am also studying, as with everything else, it takes time, a lot of it in fact. However, I am happy to be able to say that I passed my project management theory with a distinction [shameless plug]. I will be starting my practical and diploma next year.

For the developers, I will be reviving my other blog The ASP.NET Guy early next year.

The big news is sometimes after March, I should ease into things and get back to reviews and photography on a more regular basis, with a massive announcement, I hope.

I want to thank you all for supporting me and reading my gibberish and wish you a fantastic festive season and a great new year.

Reviews to look forward to:

  1. Samsung Galaxy 4 Zoom (Here are the photos)
  2. Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS

PS: If you have a SONY Alpha NEX, I have been using the Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS and it’s a pearl, if you are hesitating, don’t. The only issue I encountered is the auto focus is sometimes slow.
