One of the great things about running one’s own site is the fun you can have looking at server logs — especially for search terms. Right now, the fifth most popular search term for the site is “belligerent toddlers”. Perhaps you have to be me to find that amusing. Maybe I need more sleep.
(just for my dear sweet old mother’s sake) There’s nothing that refreshes the creative urge quite as much as stopping work, going and finding some painkillers and then having a bloody good float in a pool. Even if it is raining right now. I thought Queensland was meant to have nice weather?
I’m somewhat out of my environment at the moment — but that would have something to do with being in Queensland at a convention, rather than at home changing nappies and breaking technology — sometimes at the same time. There may have been drinking. There may have been the inadvertent winning of prizes. There may […]
Hey, look — an online journal! That hasn’t been touched for a while! Not that original an idea, really. My excuse this week is a combination of noisy builders, sick children and the age-old fallback position of “not getting enough sleep”.

A few new entries for today, plus a bit of gratuitous back-patting. Don’t say you weren’t warned… Some of my Netguide work has made it online — which is interesting, at least because most of the reviews-based stuff I do for Netguide is for print only. This, however, is a guide to not getting ripped […]
CNET.com.au has published a couple more reviews (and there’s more waiting in the wings, folks!) Philips WACS700 Wireless Music Centre: Philips’ WACS700 Wireless Music Centre meets one of the core criteria for home audio equipment — it looks good… Linksys WRT54GC Compact Wireless-G Router: If you’re going to give a product a prefix of “Compact”, […]
