Recording can take me anywhere, quite literally, so it’s important for me to be able to access all of my software and sample effects whenever I’m not at home. For example, I was doing some work for a friend last week, nothing major, just helping him out with an edit. Anyway, I had my laptop on me, but needed some clips from my main server.
Luckily, I’d remembered to set up a virtual private network, which means I can access all of the stuff that’s on my server without physically being there. It’s going to be a real blessing later on in the year when I’m at the Budapest Autumn Festival later in the year.
My year’s turning out to be pretty jam-packed, come to think of it. It’s a shame that Benicassim didn’t work out, but the (top secret) project it’s been trumped for should be well worth sacking it off. I’m also working on getting a United season ticket from a mate who’s selling his so, if that comes to fruition, I’ll be giving up my Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays! For a good cause, mind
In saying that, the rest of this week isn’t looking too busy, so I’ll get to catch up on my reading. What’s catching my eye at the moment? Well, it’s funny you should ask…
This is a bit of throw-away fun, but it’s great for a music buff like me. Lots of bits of trivia to impress with down the pub (I know most it though, sadly!). Hey, here’s hoping it’ll propel our pub team to pub quiz victory the next time we’re down there on a Thursday!
