I am not dead.

I haven’t posed here in more than a month, because a month and a half ago I suddenly found myself without a computer. The local power utility company, Eskom, burnt my motherboard down. I have already posted about how much Eskom sucks in the past, so I will not elaborate on that.

So my Mac was broken, just when the 1 year warranty was over. I sent it in for repairs, at a local Apple Certified repairs place. They quoted me for nearly R10’000 (That’s about $1500). After a month of nothing being done, I decided to just buy a new Mac, instead of bothering repairing that one. I bought a new iMac 20” 2.66GHz, and switched the RAM and the Hard Disk from the old one. I am now back online, with a brand-new computer, and I shall be updating this blog more often now.

The real reason for this post, though, is to announce my new site. I have had this idea in mind for a long time, and I really needed a site that could serve as my identity hub. By that, I mean a page that links to my main profiles around the internet: This blog, my company site, my deviantArt profile, my Twitter account, my last.fm profile, and lastly my Facebook profile.

Introducing kenneth.ballenegger.com!

I have to say I’m pretty proud of this design.

Here’s a short video of the main design steps & decision that went into this site:
