I wrote this in the earlyish hours of Saturday morning before a sleep. And now, some twenty-plus hours later, I'm publishing it... It's been a long day. Last night I worked on my seminal essay for the great crypto exchange writing contest of 2023. Wh...

The Long Road Back To Music

1 Apr 2023 1 minute read 3 comments ohdearcrypto

It shouldn't be that long a road really. Its only been a few weeks. When I say it's what I should be doing it's only really me saying that. It's not an official position. I'm not working for an orchestra or royal court. I'm in a couple of 'bands' and...

Bitcoin Miner

30 Mar 2023 3 minute read 0 comments ohdearcrypto

I feel a bit bad about it but during this phase of my life, with a few things going on, I just want to take it easy with my computing time and play Bitcoin Miner. It feels a bit Pavlovian, a dumb search for satoshis. As Mike Skinner of The Streets on...

Drawing Feelings and Recycling Chromebooks

19 Mar 2023 1 minute read 0 comments ohdearcrypto

My friend and I had a go at drawing our feelings today. We started out from that idea anyway. And I didn't intend to draw a self-portrait but soon I was well... a bit that way inclined. So here they (as in she/he) are... The evening has swished by s...

Spring, crypto, blogging

18 Mar 2023 2 minute read 0 comments ohdearcrypto

Spring is near enough starting up here. And the price of crypto is booming too with much talk on this site and others of banking failures and this kind of battle between the forces of old money and new. Or something like that, I don't pay too much at...

11 Mar 2023 3 minute read 0 comments ohdearcrypto

It's March the 10th. This used to be my favourite time of the year but, at zero degrees Celsius and with various other stuff going on, I am struggling to enjoy current days. I want to be writing online to earn some pennies because…… er... I'm not qui...

The UK Top 20 (24 February 2023)

25 Feb 2023 3 minute read 0 comments ohdearcrypto

A 'Lavender Haze' creeps up on Taylor Swift and I'm listening to the top 20-ish of the UK pop charts. Miley Cyrus is number 1. Can she be knocked off the top spot? I'm a bit subdued. It's February. I'm listening to some of the singles charts maybe be...
