Technical glitches… I think

There seems to be something wrong with my site setup at the moment… pictures arent’ uploading, things aren’t updating like they should. Not sure if it’s a random problem, or something worse (my first incident with a hack came up recently), but it’s stopping me posting things I’ve wanted to add here (and pics). More ...

Now this is cool: Netflix on Wii

Now this is cool: Netflix on Wii
Not in Australia (yet), but I’m really hoping it’s only a matter of time before Netflix gets in on the act locally: Wii becomes third console to stream Netflix It’s a triple crown for Netflix. Beginning in the spring, the Wii will become the last of the three current video game consoles to get instant ...

Here’s what we should do Rupert

Here's what we should do Rupert
In response to this recent news: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/10/09/2710281.htm Murdoch warns Google: it’s time to pay What we all really need to do is stop linking to News Ltd sites. Stop blogging about them, stop submitting to Digg, Stumbleupon, linking on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Murdoch appears not to want this… unless we pay, of course. It’s a ...

Tell me about your Internet usage

Well, that’s what someone asked me today. By complete accident, I was called by a Swinburne University Psychology department phone poll, which gave this very interesting opportunity to answer a bunch of questions about my Internet habits. She told me it would take about 20 minutes, but in the end it took 45 minutes. But ...

Quiet one, but productive

Really quiet weekend, almost entirely a strictly at home affair, which helped the bank balance, my health, and getting things done around the house. Pretty poor weather as well, which has been a running theme all week, and since that’s been no good for my health, it was better to stay home as much as ...

eePC questions

On the train this morning I got my first laptop conversation. Every day on the train the laptop appears for me to write, and the passenger next to me says nothing. But today, an older guy asked me some questions about the laptop. He was suitably impressed, and asked me about the battery life, and ...

Back off Delicious!

I don’t mind the fact that a lot of my blog posts recently (well, most, I admit it,) have been delicious links. I mean, it’s old school blogging really, links and commentary and all that. But I’ve let my proper blogging slide, for sure. So maybe I should turn delicious links off for a few ...

Breakdowns

Been a funny week at work this week. On Monday my computer broke down completely, which saw me shuffle around any spare desk for a few days (we’re in a small office, so there aren’t many to choose from). Then, today, there was nothing available for me, so I have literally been able to go ...

Reports of its death were…

Greatly exaggerated, it would appear. My phone, that is. I mentioned yesterday that Alex seemed to kill my phone by dunking heavily in water somewhere (possibly the toilet!) After pulling it apart and leaving it in as many pieces as possible to dry overnight, I put it back together and found that it did indeed ...

Trying…

As in difficult. It’s all good really, but sometimes small children can just drive you nuts. Alex is getting really frustrated with not being able to communicate with us properly… we want to try some more sign language just to help him out with that. And Alex seems to have killed my mobile phone, unbelievably ...
