I realised it’s been a long time since I wrote anything here. I’ve been rather busy reinventing myself.

I still own translatortips.com but I’m not developing it any further. If you want to buy it, I’m open to sensible offers. I think I’ve written everything useful that I have to say about the translation industry – for now. 😉

I’ve been teaching ICT (computers) to Year 5 kids at my son’s school one afternoon a week for the last few years. You know I’ve always been keen on computers, right? About a year and a half ago I heard about a rather cool sounding new computer called the Raspberry Pi and thought it was something I needed to be in on at the start.

So I was one of the “nutters” up early on launch morning 29 Feb 2012. It didn’t arrive until May, but since then I’ve been blogging about my experiences over at my newest venture http://RasPi.TV and making videos like this one…

…on my YouTube channel RasPiTV

I’ve also been involved with software and hardware development and it’s likely there will be a book or ebook in the offing at some point too.

I’ve had a lot of fun at a time when I really needed a change of direction. Sometimes you just have to follow your interests.

I thought some of you might like to know. 🙂

  1. Good for you Alex! Very happy you’re following your interests, that’s very important in life!
    All the best,
    gigi

  2. Hi Alex! Paul (husband, and Powwownow voice conferencing) and my nephew, Sean, both know about Raspberry Pi, so I have sent them the link to your blog. I haven’t the faintest idea what to do with it but I am glad that you’re so busily occupied with it, with Tomek, with teaching, printer cartridges, and falcons, flying, and soft- and hard-ware development! Do you sleep? Regards to Malgosia too!

  3. Hello. What an elegant way to say goodbye. Quite frankly, I won’t be following your new activities, because I probably wouldn’t understand one tenth of it, and it’s not really one of my interests, but it’s good to know that you are into new ventures (I wish I could embark on a similar adventure.) Wish you all the best!

  4. Alex, once again thank you for everything you shared with us so far.
    All the best for the future!

  5. Hi Alex,
    Unfortunately, I will not be following you in this new venture. Like Nadine, I wouldn’t understand a tenth of it. Pity!
    I wish to let you know that I LOVE your translation articles. I once downloaded the Evolutionary Stages in Freelance Translator Career, and I read it again and again from time to time. And every time I read it, I feel someone is actually talking to me. I mean, your prose is so well-written and your ideas so clear. You have really made me grow as a professional.
    I wish you the best of luck in life and in your new enterprise. If you ever change your mind, just let us know you are back! 🙂
    (Off-topic: your ads were not a problem. I eventually learnt how to dodge them.)
    My very best regards.

  6. Hi Alex

    Thank you for sharing.

    Did you receive the email I sent you yesterday? Thanks for letting me know.

    Kind regards
    Levent

  7. A pity to see you leaving translation industry, Alex! Best wishes from our team in your new endeavors!
