Let's face it – I'm tired!

“Morning noon and night it’s drink and dancing, some quick romancing, and then a shower..”
If only the life of a tech journo was quite that simple. Also, I’d look dreadful in fishnets. You know it, I know it — let’s not go there.
Instead, we could go over to Hydrapinion, where this week’s column looks at a certain Telstra mystery:
Why doesn’t Telstra have a portable WiFi router?: “The thought struck me that for all Telstra’s posturing about taking a technology lead, it’s an area where the big telco is sadly lacking.”
Or over to MacTheReviews, where I’ve been delving into the dungeons of Torchlight:
Torchlight: “Guess what happens when you establish a mining colony on top of a huge pile of magical crystals? If you guessed “nothing, everybody just mines the crystals and grows rich on the profits with no side-effects at all”, then you’re clearly not built for games design.”
And that’s not counting this week’s guest editor spot at Gizmodo, which has seen me write the following diverse mix of articles:

“I’m tired, tired of playing the game,
ain’t it a crying shame,
I’m so tired!”
