If you break the rules, God help you fool, you’ve got Mr T to fear!

That’s the problem of choosing your subject lines based on what you’re listening to at the time. Sometimes, you reveal truly awful song choices. A free no-prize to the person who can identify that lyric — it shouldn’t be too hard. A second free no-prize to the person who can explain exactly why it’s sitting […]

Cervix as on milkmaid

Published on :

(it’s an anagram of my full name. The guilty parties know who they are) CNET.com.au has another of my reviews live today: MyNetFone Linksys SPA2100: “Actually, if we wanted to get picky, it’s a MyNetFone Cisco Linksys Sipura SPA2100 — Linksys owns Sipura and is itself owned by Cisco…”

So, I decided to wash some cats today…

Published on :

Look, it was necessary, OK? Specifically, they’d begun to stink — I guess you can get by for only so long being covered in Cat Spit before the spit itself goes rancid. Now, I can deal with the scratches. I can deal with scrubbing shampoo into a cat’s back while it’s desperately trying to relieve […]

It’s like a guide. To Nets, obviously. Phishing optional.

Published on :

Issue #109 (or June 2007 if you’re date-minded) of Netguide Magazine is available now, and as is usually the norm, you’ll find my words of wisdom within. Quite a few of my words, in fact; a full review of Sony’s Playstation 3 console, a guide to setting up a home wireless network — clearly becoming […]

Taxi Cab Confessions

Published on :

(warning: Rant ahead. You have been warned) So, this afternoon, I was exiting a media event in the city, and looking for a cab, along with a small group of fellow journalists. I wandered out of the event building, and spotted one of my compatriots. I asked him if this was the Taxi queue, and […]

Three years and one day ago…

Published on :

Can you remember what you were doing? Chances are, you can’t. But I surely can. Because I was panicking. Panicking about my wife, who had spent the last week in hospital, thirty-odd weeks pregnant and with waters that had already burst. Y’know, when that normally happens, birth happens right after, but not in this case. […]

How did I know? Because the crowd went “Ho!”

Published on :

I never did understand that lyric. Then again, Will Smith is a multimillionaire*, and I just have male pattern baldness. So he probably wins on that score. And that’s a wonderful** segue into something you could win — one of my current “let’s clear stuff out of the house” eBay auctions! How have you lived […]

How much???

Published on :

That Halo 3 Xbox 360 sold — for a cool $24,300. Of course, it would have been more noteworthy had Microsoft followed correct eBay etiquette, and charged an additional 50% for shipping “just to make a profit”… To put that into some sort of perspective, that means that Master Chief is worth a bit over […]

An invisible man, sleeping in your bed…

Published on :

(who you gonna call?) Ow. My everything hurts. Scrubbing a tiled deck is hard work. It’s a good thing I’m not a full-time deck-tile-scrubber, then, all things considered. Instead, I write reviews, like the following live today at CNET.com.au: Mitsubishi HC1100: “Testing with a variety of DVD, HD-DVD and game material — sometimes being a […]
