And just as I suspected…

Published on :

It’s been a very odd day inside my head today, largely due to my ongoing insomnia battles. At these times, my head thinks the weirdest thoughts, such as the one that just passed through my cranium: “Hey! I wonder if www.toothlesscrone.com is available as a domain?” Doing a quick lazy search via NetRegistry (no particular […]

Australia — land of danger

Published on :

Saturday’s meant to be a day off, right? Well, it was.. of sorts. We took the junior Kidmans (and in the in-laws-who-will-hurt-me-badly-if-I-call-them-grandma-or-grandpa) to a local reptile park. And I happened to take a camcorder I’m testing along with me. That doesn’t count as work, does it? Anyway, as I was wandering around the reptile park, […]

But I’ve still never managed to make it up onto stage to sing “We Are The Champions” for the annual Sun Microsystems IT Journalism Awards, although as my bio will attest, I’ve had plenty of nominations make it, and more than a couple of “highly commended” certificates along the way. I strongly suspect that’ll be […]

Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine and a side order of ham…

Published on :

Weird lyric, I know, but one of my favourite tracks. And I’m in a weird mood, which might be down to too much Resident Evil 5. Or the insomnia. Probably the latter, and before you ask, it’s not being caused by the former. Although with the insomnia, I have very red and bloodshot eyes right […]

This is my BOOMSTICK!

Published on :

Because some things are too cute not to share. Or, alternatively, if you prefer, because I know some very, very strange people… When Miss Six was only Miss One (It’s sheer hell changing her name by deed poll every year, let me tell you), a good friend of mine commented that she was very pretty […]

I want to keep you for the rest of my life…

Published on :

A quick news story, and then something pinched holus bolus from Facebook, courtesy of the always incredible MJCP. First up, the news, this time at APCMag.com: ABC launches Android and iPhone applications: “Access your ABC on a tiny screen, especially Android and iPhone — but no Radio or Video at first.” And then the pinched-from-facebook […]

Birds do fly, looks like rain

MSI PX600 Prestige Collection Notebook: “It’s less Gucci handbag style, and more leather elbow patches on your university lecturer style, if you follow us.” […]
