Goin’ to the chapel and we’re….

Likely to come third… Well, that’s not how the lyric goes, but anyway; I’ve been nominated for two Lizzies, for Best Gaming Journalist (a category where I’ve been highly commended in the past) and Best Technology Reviewer (a category where I’m truly thrilled to have been nominated, especially in the company of the other nominees).

Games-related hilarity abounds, with 3DAvenue publishing my review of Sony’s interesting-but-flawed 24: The Game: “It’s universally accepted that Jack Bauer’s a very, very hard man that you don’t want to cross. Ever. Well, unless you enjoy the idea that your last few seconds on this earth will be spent staring down the barrel of his […]

We now interrupt…

The seemingly endless flow of Delta Goodrem fans who seem intent on telling me how evil I am, to… (drum roll) Congratulate Pete & Wendy, who had their first bub at 2:51 today. Great news guys. Now comes the really fun part.

Splish splash splosh!

Various notes and news for today: There’s a new entry in Third Time Round, for those who are interested in the ongoing process of parenting. There’s a pair of my product reviews up at CNET.com.au: Philips 32PF9830 LCD TV: If you’re after a TV to impress people with the quality that LCD can deliver, there […]

Delta Goodrem stole my son’s shoes…

Published on :

There’s big news afoot, but I’m too brain frazzled to write in detail about it right now. Expect an update to Third Time Round shortly. Instead, I’m going to complain. Bloody Delta Goodrem tried (but failed) to steal my 2 year old son’s shoes… Well, not exactly steal. Still. I need to vent somehow. Having […]

19 weeks to go…

Something new today, with my musings on becoming a father for the third time getting a page all of their own. With pictures. Of babies. That you haven’t seen before (unless you’re my wife, who’s rather more familiar with what an ultrasound of her innards looks like than I suspect she’d like to be). There’s […]

Uh-oh. I’m getting that feeling again…

Another day, and more online publishing malarkey: CNET.com.au once again comes through with another review of mine: Linksys WRT54G3G: The Linksys WRT54G3G does an admirable job of simply and seamlessly sharing a Vodafone 3G data connection. At the same time, the top two (and three of the top four) phone reviews in the Top Phones […]

Bad luck apparently travels in threes

Published on :

And I’ve already had two of my three. #1: Stop breathing for a period of time; don’t sleep thereafter (see previous entries for more details) #2: This morning, the bookcase/shelf in the laundry collapsed. Much broken glass, bits of bent metal, dented tins of catfood and a massive, rotting shelf that i had to lug […]

In the tree by the brook there’s a songbird who sings…

Nothing, it seems, can stop the tide of the presses with my name within — not even my worrying near-expiry. Oh well. 3DAvenue.com has my review up of Shadow Of The Colossus: Play Shadow Of The Colossus, and you’ll either agree, or want my head on a stick. The choice is yours… And the latest […]

Someone saved my life tonight…

Published on :

(Well, to be strictly accurate, it was yesterday. But that’s not what Elton John sang, and I can’t find any song references to cashews) Yesterday didn’t exactly go as planned — well, at least for half of it. Off to Church on Sunday morning (as is our normal habit), and as part of the sermon, […]
