  • Most Useless Program of the Week: windouzu

    And the useless program of the week award goes to: Windouzu! I’ve had it running all day and it’s marvellous. Get it here. (via)

  • Internet 1.0?

    I’m sitting and wondering this morning what on earth I did during Internet 1.0 (i.e. before it was fashionable to call it Web, and give it a version number). I can recall fansites dedicated to Buffy, my very own Geocities account, random flash games and ad-overkill Yahoo!Mail, but that all seems a little… well, lacking. […]

  • When I Grow Up

    I want to be rich enough that an overnight 10% jump in petrol prices doesn’t faze me in the least. I wouldn’t even have to skimp on the caviar. Until then… bloody hell >.< $50 for half a tank of fuel?! Are you crazy? *most reluctantly hands over cash*

  • Camera Hunting

    I’m looking for a digital camera, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions based on their experiences. My criteria are: Price should be capped at about $400, with a max of $500. Memory card format needs to be either SD or Memory Stick (i.e. a Sony), as this is the cards I already […]

  • Annie encounters Centrelink

    Annie encounters Centrelink: Ah, bureaucracy. Can anyone help Annie out here?

  • Piano Stories

    Oh crap, I’m late I’m late I hate CityRail I’m late, I thought as I ran from Circular Quay to the Conservatorium of Music. The time was 4:01, the concert scheduled to start a minute ago. I’d never even seen the Conservatorium before, let alone knew where the entry was. Going on a map, a […]

  • A Study in Scenery

    The club is packed, and the crowd is slowly transforming. The Friday night 9-to-5ers are leaving, finishing their week, and the dedicated party nuts are heading out to start their weekend; two different worlds crossing in the common space of the music and drink. I’m not sure what I’m doing here, and soon I will […]

  • Little White Beast

    If there was ever evidence of the Devil’s hand in the affairs of men, it would be the little white beast which has perverted society to the point where people carry it around with them willingly, its tender white tendrils enwrapping the masses drawn in by the oh-so-innocent promise of joy, even as those around […]

  • Greenpeace Founder Goes Nuclear

    Greenpeace Founder Goes Nuclear: “Nuclear energy is the only large-scale, cost-effective energy source that can reduce [CO2] emissions while continuing to satisfy a growing demand for power. And these days it can do so safely.” This is somewhat along the lines of what I wrote about this last year when the debate was on here.

  • Forever Young

    Forever young, forever young… I wanna be forever young Do you really wanna live forever? Forever… forever… Gah! I’ve had this song in my head for nearly 3 days straight now. Youth is like diamonds in the summer sun diamonds are forever so many adventures couldn’t happen today so many songs we forgot to play […]
