What's been going on.....

As I've been very distant from the blog and my social networks, I want to explain why.

In one word: Work.

In a whole post: We got a new printer recently, an Afinia L801 Label Printer to be exact. Just to clue you in to why this is a major thing, the printer is quite expensive, and we got the first one in all of South Africa.

Yay, right? No, not yay. The problem is that such a high profile printer doesn't print everything perfectly by itself, obviously, and we've been struggling for quite a bit trying to get the thing up and running.

The printer itself has some "banding" issues, but we are slowly sorting it out. The big issue comes with the bundled "Plotter", which has caused us a lot of frustration and hair-pulling.

The Plotter has to cut shapes out of the printed illustrations, and the cause for concern is an obvious one: IT AIN'T CUTTING RIGHT!

Now, Mr. Kyle van Rensburg has to figure out how to work the darned thing, and that what's causing the silence as of recent: It's taking a while.

Be assured, it is not my intention to abandon you guys. I want to post every day of the week, but first I have to sort this all out, and then it's smooth sailing from here on out. Hopefully.

So there you go, if you've been wondering why there were no Preacher posts, Newsdays, or other intended "Mini-Reviews", now you know why.

I'll keep you guys up to date over the weekend if I have anything to say, and will also give you some of my thoughts on the gaming world as of late.

In conclusion: I know, you want more posts. They are coming soon. Let me just get all of this sorted out first, and then the games* will begin....

*Awful pun totally not intended.
