They picked the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota…

For whatever reason, I cannot get that darned song out of my skull. Even good old standby songs, like Kenny Roger’s “The Gambler” can’t throw it out of my head. While I hum along to Weird Al (and curse the fact that for whatever reason, “Internet Leaks” isn’t available on the Australian iTunes store yet), […]

I HAVE THE POWER!!!

Just imagine how cathartic it would be to shout that out loud, right now, no matter what you’re doing. Actually, don’t imagine it. Do it. Holding a large sword up and being struck by lightning is entirely optional. There. Doesn’t that feel better? Now, onto today’s work, which not coincidentally revolves around power gadgets at […]

I sometimes feel like a pelican – whichever way I turn, I’ve still got an enormous bill in front of me…

And bills must be paid. So it’s back to work I go. Firstly, PC Authority’s published some tips on getting the most out of the iPhone’s GPS: Amazing apps for your phone: How to make the most out of your iPhone’s GPS: “Still relying on Google Maps to get around? Here’s a quick summary of […]

The old man said to me, said don’t always take life so seriously…

So, a new sparkly look for the ol’ blog. I spent hours on Sunday mucking around with various themes and bits of style sheet hackery, most of which plain didn’t work. Then found this theme, which I mostly like. Still need to get something to replace the default clouds, though. I’ve also been busy writing […]

Woah, Black Betty…

Wow. Quite a busy week. Exceptionally so, but this is a good thing, with many projects lining up nicely in my sights. Makes a nice change, actually. While I’m trying to slow down for the weekend (they have these things called weekends now. You totally should try them. They’d look good on you.), you can […]

It’s time to start the countdown…

While I was off enjoying the fine sights of Toormina (population 6,511, and yet somehow it supports a massive shopping centre with two games stores in it…), some of my hard yakka was paying off. Well, in publication terms anyway. I’m sure a requisite amount of Zlotys will be making their way into my bank […]

A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do…

That subject line’s basically just there to get stuck in my wife’s head. An odd week in Alex publishing, that’s for sure. Where should I start? Oh, yes. Copyright. A kind poster pointed out to me that a somewhat inconsequential games review that I wrote for this blog (and only for this blog) was being […]

Morbo can’t understand his teleprompter because he forgot how you say that letter that’s shaped like a man wearing a hat.

On the plus side of bad back pain: More time to watch old episodes of Futurama. I’m trying to be positive, you see. Actually, things are slowly looking up, and I’m slowly getting back into work, which is good. Somebody’s got to earn a living, and the children keep complaining about “needing to eat” and […]
