  • The hardest thing about these things is coming up with this stuff

    I don’t know, stuff is happening but then stuff isn’t really happening. My sister’s moved out. It’s a little different, because she was the one that did most talking. We’re compensating though, and anyway she’s still calling regularly. Adelaide sounds like a nice town. Been listening to Hilltop Hoods a lot more recently =D Sweet […]

  • So I Says to him, I say, oh, you’re never going to believe it…

    Let’s think the unthinkable, let’s do the undoable, let’s prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all. WFT-II was the only British software company that could be mentioned in the same sentence as such major U.S. companies as Microsoft or Lotus. The sentence would probably run […]

  • Lil’ Steelpants Johnny

    Reporter: Mr Howard, you’ve said that pulling troops out of Iraq would be a bad thing, and– John Howard, PM: Yes, and I’ve maintained it, the Coalition should not be pulling troops out of Iraq, and I stand by George’s troop surge. Reporter: Is it true that you’re also sending in more troops? John Howard: […]

  • More than meets the eye!

    Transformers the movie is coming! It all feels a little Independence Day-esque, but the CG’s better now =D (direct link to trailer on Yahoo)

    Babel is one of those occasional movies that aim to be a little “high-concept”, exploring new ways of storytelling in movies, usually to express an idea rather than tell a direct plot. It’s left up to the viewer as to whether they absorb the message, or indeed what message they absorb. Crash was one of […]

  • A Whole Year!

    I’ve been working a whole year! Only 44 more to go. What have I got to show for it? Um… Not a whole lot. Sure, travel, experience, knowledge, all that kinda fuzzy stuff, but nothing I can “hold”, y’know?  It’s one of those things about working in an information-based industry, but I do occasionally hunger […]

  • Mad Folding Chair

    Mad Folding Chair (vid): My house will be stacked with these. Sweeeeet. (via)

  • In the works, v2

    The first rule of blogging is: don’t talk about work. It’s a cardinal rule, the violation of which can result in much pain and regret in future. Meh. So back in October last year, I foreshadowed going overseas for my “second rotation”, but didn’t really follow up on it here – effectively, the idea had […]

  • Google Maps now has directions for Australia

    Google Maps now has directions for Australia – e.g., check out the directions from my (ex-)place in Melbourne to my place in Sydney!
