Slow season…

Published on :

It’s always quiet in that period inbetween Christmas and New Year’s eve — I don’t really expect anything to pick up until at least halfway through January, really. Having said that, I’m writing like a fiend right now, but that’s all print stuff that won’t see the page for a month or so. In the […]

Seasonal musings…

Published on :

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21 (Note: It’s just possible I didn’t actually author the […]

Talkies!

Published on :

I’ll be doing a radio interview this afternoon for ABC Port Macquarie, on the topic of online fraud, and how to avoid it — the keen eyed amongst you might note that I wrote a feature on this for a recent issue of Netguide. Now, normally I would have at least one reader of this […]

Oh, and there’s some shizzle about not passing forward or running off the pitch, but that’s all secondary to the […]

I’m in there..

Published on :

Or am I? The latest issue of PC User is out amongst the greater populace (go on, buy a copy, keep starving freelancers in work), and I’ve got reviews in there — for Coolect, the Palm z22 and others — although for some reason I don’t actually make the contributor list in the front of […]

Apes

Published on :

3D Avenue has posted my review of King Kong — or, to give it its proper full title: Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game Of The Movie: There’s an island, a movie within a movie, and a big ape. And it would be truly remiss of me to miss out on the opportunity to […]
