Google Apps Summit Day 2

Me and some of the Yammer/DEC folks today Another excellent day at Burwood for the Google Apps summit. Today I was extremely glad to be at MLC, with their luxurious airconditioning… … Because outside it reached 44.7 degreesĀ Celsius! It was officially the hottest day on record for Sydney. Fortunately, it was not a disaster for ...

Day 1 Google Apps summit

Day 1 Google Apps summit
Headed out bright and very early to the Google Apps summit being held at MLC school in Burwood. Could only gawk at how modern and wealthy the school grounds were, but that wasn’t the point of the day. The point was that this was a big event being held in aid of the whole suite ...

Off to Sydney for many reasons

Off to Sydney again today, for two different reasons. I’m at the Google Apps Summit at MLC in Burwood tomorrow and Friday, then taking Will to more Doctors appointments on Monday. In between we’re going to the Wallace & Gromit invention show at the Powerhouse Museum on Saturday… And whatever else we can manage So ...

And we’re finally home

Home today, nice and late. Feeling good, but tired. The family back together, that’s what counts. After six weeks leave, I’m glad to be going back to work for a few days. Just three, and one of them is a social cricket day! But then a few days of planning and catching up. Then two ...

Coonabarabran High School Musical 2012 Sound Effects
For the 2012 Coonabarabran High School musical I volunteered to compile and/or create the sound effects needed for the show. For this, I used the excellent community site freesound.org, a massive open source collection of sound effects. In accordance with the site, below are all the sound effects I used, some by themselves, some in ...

2012… The whirlwind…

What a year… And it’s only March! Busy back at work now, already done the initial 2012 laptop rollout, and so many other projects! I’ve joined the school/town band (playing clarinet again, no less) and am getting involved behind the scenes in the school musical this year. I’m assisting in the media publishing class at ...

This is called Summer?

Apparently it’s the first day of Summer. But you wouldn’t know it with this weather… rain for a week, flooding, darkness in the day and more. It’s rained more this year than for years previously, and don’t we know it. With the roof leaking and things gone well past “it’s good for the farmers” (it’s ...

Luxury and family

Luxury and family
Two different dinners today, with the work Christmas lunch at Aqua at Milsons Point, with crazy perfect views of the Harbour Bridge. Very, very good food, where I get to indulge my fish love (without my fish allergic wife), and have prime Barramundi as the main course, along with a vege entree and an amazing ...

Back to the grind

Went back to work today, after a long weekend at home. Much of the same old thing at work really, with no great issues (even when I thought there would be), and no great revelations. Rugged right up as usual, getting back to leaving home at 7.30am. Didn’t miss that… it’s lucky to be over ...

Small-fry competition

Went into the city today for a birthday party for a friend at work, which I haven’t done that often recently, so it was good. Of course, the weather was awful, and the trains were delayed from trackworks, but it worked out okay. Cameron picked an amusing choice for lunch… he’s 29 but went for ...
