Ozymandias

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

And there comes the hour

He who has waited long enough, will wait forever. And there comes the hour when nothing more can happen and nobody more can come and all is ended but the waiting that knows itself in vain.

Deadman’s Cross – Hidden Quests

Deadman's Cross

Having a hard time finding the hidden quests in Deadman’s Cross?
Here’s a list. Some are easier than others, for some you have to stumble onto the right path, for others such as Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous simply skip all the doors so you can go up all the floors to find the door marked with a red cross.

3001 Hidden: I Am Legion 1 – Found in Barbacking 3 (Area 2)
3002 Hidden: I Am Legion 2 – Found in Thug Life 3 (Area 8 – unmarked)
3003 Keys to the City – Found in Fall of Faith 2 (Area 5)
3004 Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous 1 – Found in Barbacking 5 (Area 10, door marked with an X)
3005 Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous 2 – Found in Barbacking 6 (Area 10, door marked with an X)

And in case you haven’t tried out this game yet, go grab it for free in the Apple App Store or on Google Play and use my invite code to get a free special card: C5IQ0D5 (that’s a zero, not a capital letter O).

Time Machine automatic backups

Time Machine

I noticed Time Machine stopped making automatic backups, it would start ‘preparing’ but never actually making the hourly backup anymore. Took me a while to figure out what was causing it, so for future reference and anyone else who might have the same problem:

  1. Turn off Time Machine in the Preferences
  2. Delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist
  3. Turn Time Machine back on

(hat tip)

Work in progress... home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
