"It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime... what better place than here, what better time than now" And coupled with an understanding that our time here is limited, ask yourself - "Why Not"? This blog will be where I haphazardly share my progress in a number of things, mainly coding, learning Italian, buying cryptocurrency and NFTs etc.

Good morning Pub0xers, I hope today finds you well.  I'm in a much better mood this morning.  I'm still not quite over the rant from yesterday and the work to remove Meta's sticky data tentacles from my testicles continues. I digress, but I do have g...

One way to test how close we are to mass public adoption is by trying to understand what the general population feel or think about something.  There is a saying which to quote badly, goes something like "if something is being widely spoken about, th...

The developers at FlipFam have been working extremely hard on pushing out updates to the game. If you are unfamiliar with FlipFam, I would recommend my earlier post on the game, where I delve in to the gameplay dynamics.  It's still relevant as the b...

Major Sorare Update

1 Feb 2023 4 minute read 0 comments dotMatrix

For those unfamiliar with Sorare, it is an Ethereum blockchain based football trading card game.  There are plenty of posts about how it used to be, so I won't delve into that.  The folk over at Sorare HQ identified a few frustrations with the gamepl...

I've been meaning to post this for a while, but this happened while I was away on a well earned holiday.   But we did it 0Xers! We landed a Libero FC team in the top 100 for the first time ever!   Not quite the dizzying heights, but a very strong ga...

I seem to have acquired a few different sports games over the past couple of weeks in excited anticipation for the new football season.  This series of posts is as much for my own benefit to keep track of things.  But also an update on the progress f...

After having my arm twisted by a colleague yesterday, I've dusted off my fantasy PL managers hat and thrown it into the ring.  (My Sorare fantasy hat is constantly in the ring!) The problem with fantasy premier league is you really have to be committ...

Libero FC - new signings announced (Sorare)

Hi there sports fans.  I've been active on Sorare about a year ago then lost a little interest in it until a couple of blog posts on here reminded me of the game. I'd not been too fussed about spending any money on getting the Rare cards, until I fou...

12 Jul 2022 2 minute read 1 comment dotMatrix

This post is a bit of fun, and in no way intended to ridicule anyone. If anything, it highlights the general misconceptions and lies being propagated by the UK mainstream media, in this case the Guardian. This is just the tip of a very sceptical iceb...
