The trials and excitement of house moving

We have a new house — and yes, this time we own it. This is a big thing for me, and for my wife and family, and naturally we’re very happy about it. First of all though is the little matter of moving house! It’s only a very small move in terms of distance, but ...

The Paradox of the Proof | Project Wordsworth

Unusual story about the world of mathematical proofs, and a reclusive mathematician who might have solved a famous problem, if only he would explain the proof properly to anyone!  via DiigoRead the article Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

A new beginning? 1

I got a notification today saying that I have been accepted into the Graduate Entry Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) today. At Charles Sturt University, via Distance Education. Should be good.

I need to write more

Yes, again. Been off the novel for a short while, and I won’t get mopey about it (who the hell needs that?) But I know I need to get back on the book — I felt stalled briefly but I know it’s there. I saw a Guardian story on Twitter recently: James Rhodes: ‘Find what ...

What happens when pirates play a game development simulator…

Very cool meta gag where developers of a game dev simulator altered a version of the game that would then be pirated, to try and subtlely tell those players what their pirating was doing to the game developers themselves. via DiigoRead the article Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...
