Back to work. Lots of work…

With NaNoWriMo successfully behind me, I’d better get on with some work.
Actually, the writing process for NaNoWriMo didn’t stop me working much per se at all, although it did play havoc with my evening recreation time. A Country Practice is still on the air, right?
While I work out what’s happened to Fatso The Wombat, you could keep yourself busy with this week’s Geekspeak:
Today might be boring, but it’s not the most boring day ever: “Need to know, for reasons that need not be specified, the name of the world’s largest
earthworm?”

And at CNET.com.au, there’s a whole smorgasbord of content for your perusal:
Canon PIXMA MG8150: “The Pixma MG8150 is the costly bigger brother of the excellent MG6150, but unless you’ve got a burning need for slide scanning, it’s difficult to justify the additional cost.”
Western Digital My Passport Essential USB 3.0 1TB: “Western Digital’s My Passport Essential USB 3.0 1TB is an adequate USB 3.0 drive, but it’s not the quickest drive on the market.”
Western Digital MyPassport AV 320GB: “Should you buy an AV-specific USB 2.0 external hard drive? In a word, no.”
Telstra Prepaid Mobile Broadband Hotspot: “It’s not as flashy as comparable portable devices, but Telstra’s prepaid mobile broadband hotspot delivers speed — at a price.”
PADACS Rubata Keyboard: “PADACS’ Rubata Keyboard is the best iPad keyboard we’ve seen yet. It’s not perfect, but if you’re after a productivity boost for the normally consumption-centric iPad, it’s a good option.”
