English: The International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by an STS-134 crew member on the space shuttle Endeavour after the station and shuttle began their post-undocking relative separation. Undocking of the two spacecraft occurred at 11:55 p.m. (EDT) on May 29, 2011. Endeavour spent 11 days, 17 hours and 41 minutes attached to the orbiting laboratory. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

G’day, and happy Caturday, such as that may be. This time, I’ve decided to go a little easy on the links, and for this and perhaps other of my blogs, I’ve decided to post a page discussing all plans and projections of online projects, both previously announced, and projects to come, to serve as a helpful reminder for me to get off my backside and complete them!

There’s my interest in setting up my own monthly satiric webcomic on the adventures of misfit mad scientist Doctor Incompetto (No, I’ve not forgotten, nor have I given up on this!), my learning of Indic languages, particularly Tamil and Hindi, my speculative fiction effort, the current endeavor of studying logical and cognitive fallacies in-depth, the revival of the City of Glass project for fractals, completing my fractal tutorials, my posting more often on mental health issues, and so on.

All projects dating from the beginning of my blogging career will be covered, added to as new ones catch my interest. Those I complete will be noted as such, and they will all be there to see, to hold me accountable to you, the readers.

About Troy Loy

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.
