So, what did you do with your morning?

Published on :

Some of you undoubtedly went into work — and some of you went back to work, and the prospect of teaching. Others went off to code databases, study law or just maintain networks somewhere. There may have even been some random writing of articles going on, although I wouldn’t know anything about that. What did […]

A La Peanut Butter Sandwiches!

Published on :

Time for a family update, methinks — this isn’t just meant to cover my professional life, after all. After all, there’s an important anniversary coming up… Y’see, a little under a year ago — February 7th, to be precise — I took over fulltime care of my two children for the first time. Scary stuff, […]

Alex 1: World 0

Published on :

To think, that all those years of gameplay were actually preparing me to be a great parent! And to all the naysayers out there who thought I was wasting my time in front of a joypad: In your face, world!

TV go foom…

Published on :

Dangit, the TV just exploded. Anyone got a cheap (and good) LCD panel they’d like to send my way? (Yes, I know, as an experienced consumer IT journo, technically I should know the answer to that question (in most civilised cases, it’s “No, you bloody scrounger”), but this is THE INTERNET, and stupid begging appeals […]

Welease Wodewick!

Another day, another coupla reviews, courtesy of the fine folks at CNET.com.au: Lacie Wugged (sorry, Rugged) All-Terrain Hard Dwive (80GB): “In most ordinary circumstances, you can equate hard disk design with the word “dull”…” And then, there’s this. I wrote it, apparently. I never knew that I could write in Korean.

Some days

Published on :

Some days I feel great. Other days, I feel like this. But no matter what I feel like, the tides of the press keep rolling on… For a start, the latest issue of Netguide magazine is available right now — I should know, the editor handed me a copy only yesterday. Inside you’ll find my […]

Big things

Published on :

It’s universally held that big things are better than little things. “Size Does Matter”, and all that — thinking naturally of the advertising tag line for Godzilla. Stop thinking what you’re thinking — you’ll go blind. Anyway, CNET.com.au has two of my reviews of very big things up right now, for your reading pleasure: Legend […]

It would be remiss of me…

Published on :

Not to note and celebrate my elder brother’s birthday today. Hurrah! Then again, I’m at home, sick, with two kids, and he’s in Vegas, probably firmly ensconced in a mountain of dodgy consumer electronics and even more dodgy silicon cleavages. He’s no doubt celebrating enough for both of us. (It would be doubly remiss of […]

I am legend

Published on :

Well, actually, I’m not. But my review of the Legend Digital LPVR160 Personal Video Recorder has the word Legend in it, which makes me an official Legend, by association, or marriage, or something. A Legend-In-Law, if you will. Oh, very well. I’m just ordinary.
