April Fools…

Another typical April Fool’s Day, with the Internet just a cacophony of jokes and attempted jokes that so thoroughly drown out some sites that you don’t even bother reading for actual news. It reminds me of a few years ago when Google launched GMail on April 1. For a while you had to wonder if ...

Truly mobile now

Anyone who’s read this before might just be wondering how on earth I’m happily blogging away while being at Nelson Bay, in a house I can proudly say has never had a phone connection (why pay month when it’s only occupied a few months a year in total?) And the answer of course is that ...

Memo to Telstra, Optus, govt, whoever…

Will you all please get a move on and improve connection speeds and general Internet quality in this country? Because if Will’s reaction at the moment is anything to go by, if we don’t improve things soon he’ll be ballistic if he has to wait for a Flash movie still by age eight! At the ...

Being popularly hated

I’ve sort of known this for a while, but part of building yourself (or your writing, music, whatever) as a popular brand and successful business, not only involves building an audience that likes you work, but also an audience that hates you. I certainly wouldn’t say that you should go out of your way to ...

The power of the niche

Read a couple of things today that seemed entirely unrelated at first, but then it all came together in a magnificent way. Locally, ABC chief Kim Dalton says that we should be regulating Internet content like we do TV content. Thought he was talking about censorship at first, which is both dumb and unenforceable online, ...

Let’s see now …

Another tough one today. Still not getting into the writing as I’d like to, and there’s no one to blame but myself. I know that. Clear skies again fortunately, but it’s suddenly got really cold … insanely so for only April. Hate to see what it will be like in July. Then again, it might ...

Ready for anything

I realised today that I’m already doing so much more than I ever did at my own job with the new Penthouse gig — and it’s only been three days. Spent this afternoon working on video editing, and it was kind of unsatisfying, but should be fixed tomorrow morning. Don’t know if I’m just unfamiliar ...

‘Ask Zawarhi’ — apparently not a joke

Noticed this piece in the news today … at first I was sure it was an April Fool’s Day joke, then I saw it was reported in December initially, and posted here on April 2 anyway. Anyway … “Ask Zawarhi” responses coming soon from Qaeda leader” WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Qaeda deputy Ayman al-Zawarhi’s responses ...

Yes! Finally! Now working with WordPress

Almost buy accident, I have suddenly got this blog where it should be, working as it should be. My blog is now officially moved from Blogger to WordPress, as I have wanted for several weeks. There will be some adjustments required still I’m sure, but it’s almost all good now. Seem what both Blogger and ...
