Wouldn’t it be good to be in your shoes

A couple more reviews for CNET.com.au: Seagate FreeAgent Go Portable Drive 320GB: “Seagate’s updated FreeAgent Go is slim, attractive and offers a good mix of features and speed.” Seagate FreeAgent Xtreme 1TB: “We were cautious about anything that’s labelled as “Xtreme” — on the not inconceivable grounds that they might also be “Rad”, “To The […]

Life’s strange little coincidences…

Two oddities from the past two days… Firstly, the second and third donations to my Mo’ campaign have landed… and they’re both from people called John. I won’t bore you with the donation details again. Well, at least not today. Secondly, I was helping my daughter read through a book (as part of helping her […]

Woo-hoo! First donation!

And I haven’t even grown a single hair as yet. The first donation has landed in the donation bucket for my Movember fund, with huge thanks to the awesome Jo. Who, just in case it wasn’t clear, is now officially awesome.* Ah, I hear you thinking (I have very sensitive ears) — how can I […]

You just keep on trying ’till you run out of cake…

A 2007 Internet Meme and a song lyric, all in one. Neat. Albeit a touch dated… Also neat is catching up on my published work, especially at CNET.com.au, where there’s been a practical tsunami of Alex work.

Those of you who know me know that I’ve grown beards, on and off, for about the last ten years or so. Goatees, largely. Those of you who know me well also know that I’ve struggled, on and off, with depression.. for about the last twenty years or so. Low on the laugh factor, largely. […]

It’s a beautiful day… the sun is shining… I feel good… and no-one’s gonna stop me now…

Well, the first two statements are pretty much bald faced lies. The latter ones are looking pretty shaky too. Then again, Freddie Mercury was never particularly known for his extremely forward-looking weather forecasting abilities, now was he? And that ties in (albeit rather tenuously) to today’s Mac Blog at PC Authority, which is all about […]

But I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more…

What a daft lyric. I mean, it’s all very inspiring and all, and I’m sure given the Proclaimers’ generally energetic walking style that it’s highly aerobic to boot… but then the 1,000 mile trek just to fall over? She’s going to take one look at the sweaty, unconscious mess in front of her, and then […]

An… interesting fortnight.

(warning: Personal content ahead. I’ll get back to rabid article self-pimpage another day) Interesting times abound at Kidman HQ, especially over the last two weeks. My beloved wife has had a two week prac placement at a local pre-school, which means I’ve jumped back into the role of being a stay at home daddy during […]
