Amusements and weirdness

Was reminded today in this article about one of my earliest exposures to computers as a kid. We had a BBC Micro when I was in about year 4 or 5 of primary schoold (1984-5). And the game I remember the most was Granny’s Garden. Which you can play online apparently now. It was an ...

Moving this blog to WordPress — go there for the new stuff

I am somewhere in the process of moing this blog to WordPress on its own server — now properly and accurately at stephen-turner.net. But there seems to be no end of problems to the import/export process, to the point that I don’t even know if it will happen properly.So I suspect I might just start ...

Frustrated

Frustrated because my blog isn’t publishing but I won’t stop writing on it anyway. Frustrated because I really don’t know why it isn’t working. Frustrated because I’ve setup a new site but I can’t use it yet. Frustrated because the import function in WordPress scan’t find my posts in Blogger. Frustrated because that just slows ...

Joss Whedon’s online comic book comedy musical! 1

Now that was a mouthful! Word from various sources is that Joss Whedon has written and is currently filming a short online film — an oddball comic book musical with some fairly well known actors and well known collaborators. Found this at the Whedonesque blog, best if I just let Joss explain in his own ...

Run Tigers Run

A double-header of entertainment today, with a trip to Moore Park to watch the Wests vs St George NRL game; the first round of the season. Went with Sallie and Wayne for that one, then just Sallie after for dinner and a movie — the Simon Pegg comedy “Run Fatboy Run”, which was pretty damn ...

Review: Futurama — the return of geek comedy gods

My brother got me the new Futurama DVD movie for my birthday. He bought it Region 1 from the US, since it isn’t due out in Australia for a few more weeks (I think he bought it before Christmas, but didn’t get it delivered till January). I’m glad to have any kind of early mark ...

Domains, servers and getting things right

At the moment no one can really read this even, so it seems a bit dumb, but I do want to keep up the habit. Either way, that shouldn’t last for long, as tonight I’ve set up a new decent web space account, and am setting up WordPress to go with it (where I can ...

Happy birthday to me!

Well, another birthday, another year … a nice day to be sure, but I try not to think of too many other implications of course … Better than usual because I took a day off work today, then proceeded to go into my new job for four hours for some startup training. Knocked off there ...

300 posts and other things that couldn’t happen soon enough

I noticed when I really got back into the blog at the start of this year that I was barely over 200 posts in the whole history of the blog. Now this is post 300, which is quite a pace — and I like to think they’re useful posts as well. My personal highlight has ...

Nothing technical is working … everything else is good

Lunch at the parent’s today, with Will positively gidy dwith joy at having the backyard to walk through, to sit by the barbecue fire with his Granddad, and run himself ragged up and down stairs to the sundeck. Alex just enjoyed the walking practice and the exploration. A fun afternoon. But back here, this blog ...
