  • Bonjour!

    Bounjour from fair Paris! I am typing on the craziest keyboard I’ve seen yet. The fullstop is a shift-key, the q is where a is and… migods, it’s hard to type. Apologies for the lack of updates; there hasn’t exactly been a wealth of bloggable stories to put up, and there’s only so many times […]

  • Hamster in Hospital; UK news goes beserk

    In case you haven’t heard, Richard ‘Hamster’ Hammond (presenter of Top Gear) is in hospital with a brain injury after a stunt went wrong; what you probably haven’t seen is how beserk the UK news desks have gone over this story. Slow news week, possibly.

  • Training Training Training

    (title to be sung to the tune of “Rolling Rolling Rolling”) The IT training has started in earnest, and it’s… just like being back at uni. Apart from of course the whole business clothes and rareified atmosphere of genuine concentration that many of the other people have. I obviously have much too much time on […]

  • Daring Fireball on the new iPods

    John Gruber’s take on the new iPods: He says iPods are like DVD players, and we can’t expect firmware improvements to back-port features (the important one being search), but that completely contradicts the rest of the back-ported features.

  • Snap review of Amsterdam

    A snap review of Amsterdam: most overrated city/experience bar none.

  • End of Week 2

    Week 2 of London has (nearly) ended with a test on the last week’s worth of study on financial markets… Well, that was easy. 20 minutes to do a 2 hour exam? That’s outdone even the easiest at uni! I love multi choice exams. Financial markets is surprisingly easier than I initially assumed. While I’d […]

  • Pictures!

    First Photos from London are uploaded! Go check em out :)

  • two one

    This is supposed to be “the big one”… but stuffed if I know why. 15, 18, 20, they felt big. This one…? Well, I’m in London. I’m on an expenses-paid trip. It’s 5 o’clock. I have some great friends who want to take me out. It’s about as big as it will ever get, I’d […]

  • London Calling

    After a day of moving through the slow jelly air of jet lag, and oppressed by the flat, grey, dreary, windy, drizzly skies of London (there’s a reason why Melbourne’s weather is compared to London’s; it’s quite clear to me now)… I woke this morning semi-refreshed and ready to go… sort of. It wasn’t looking […]

  • Bye!

    Free internet at the airport! gawds, can’t believe I’ve actually got booked on this flight and everything… I’m actually going!! XD much love to all my peeps who wished me well. I’ve got a list of addresses as long as my arm to send postcards to, but I figure in 8 weeks I’ll manage something! […]
