Curse of the flying wombat…

Published on :

Typical. You wait ages for me to write up a news story, and then two come along at once. In order of publication (although it was, strangely, very close) then. Firstly, this number at PC Authority: Aussies rush to mobile over fixed line: “Australians are moving from fixed lines to mobile phones en masse, but […]

Awesome. Giraffes are apparently kosher…

Published on :

Well, at least according to the Wikipedia entry on Jewish dietary laws. It strikes me that Giraffes are perfectly proportioned to be made into Kebab rolls, which perhaps explains that mystery — and also why you never see herds of Giraffes flocking wild around anywhere that has a Kebab stand any more. And so continues […]

And now… culture

You can all thank my wife for pointing this one out to me: Which inevitably leads to this… And then this… (note: I refuse to link the Sam The American Eagle one, simply because the new voice is really jarringly bad…)

A watched pot never boils…

Published on :

Nothing quite compares to a varied portfolio of work

Hey, they can’t all be stories about the iPhone 3G, despite appearances. Hopefully, however, this doesn’t herald a trend towards me becoming the premier reviewer of titles aimed at young girls — if only because the music is truly painful… Hannah Montana Music Jam: “When mild-mannered Miley Stewart eats a banana, she becomes … no, […]

Hey, just because I was on holidays…

Published on :

Doesn’t mean I wasn’t getting published somewhere. In a somewhat catchup mode, the following articles of mine went up online over the past week: At CNET.com.au: Diner Dash/Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue/Diner Dash: Flo On The Go: “Many hours of our youth was spent stealing gold from Octopi, putting out stupidly placed oil fires and […]
