Lego collection update

      No Comments on Lego collection update

I figured it’s been a while and I also figured it’d be nice that after my last four blog posts about professional stuff, it would be nice to have something a bit more fun. My Lego collection has somewhat changed since the last time I did a post. Quite a few more additions and I am *literally* running out of… Read more »

I have got posts coming – I promise!

Just a quick update to let you know that a) I do have some posts that I’ve started and are in the process of writing and trying to get out within the next week or so and b) wedding planning is far more stressful and time consuming than I honestly thought possible. I’ve been up to my nexk in choices… Read more »

Yes, we’re tying the knot.

      No Comments on Yes, we’re tying the knot.

I’d been toying with the idea of keeping the news to only our family, or just to a close few, or to not tell anyone at all. Sadly, I’m not that great at keeping these kinds of secrets – happy secrets, things that *should* be shared. So I’m putting it out there so everyone knows so I can stop hiding,… Read more »

Update on New Years Resolutions – the good, the bad and the totally forgotten!

So, we’re a little more than a quarter of the way through the year (nearly a third!) so I figured I should do a quick update on where things stand with my resolutions. 1. Get healthy – This is actually happening. No, really! Started Lite’N’Easy in January. Now, I’ma fussy eater, but I have nothing but praise for the food… Read more »

My up-hill battle with the only ISP/Telco I can get coverage with…

As many of you would know from reading either my Twitter feed, my Facebook feed or knowing me in person, Telstra and I haven’t been getting along for about 6 months now. Considering the number if services we have with them…and the amount of money we’re *spending* on said services…you’d think they’d be more than wiling to help. Apparently not…. Read more »

I’m still alive…promise!

      No Comments on I’m still alive…promise!

Apologies for not posting anything for a while – I promise I am still alive and kicking…although less with the kicking, as that involves effort. Been working on a (very very very) long blog post regarding my interactions and issues with a well-known telecommunications company. That’s taking longer than I anticipated, purely because there’s just so much that’s happened! Will… Read more »

Resolutions… I went and made a few >.>

So this year, for the first time ever, I decided that I was going to set myself some new year resolutions. Have never really done it before, but decided to give it a try this year, if only to see if I could actually stick it out and, come December 31 2013, be able to say I’ve accomplished something I… Read more »

Lego, oh how you rock…

      3 Comments on Lego, oh how you rock…

So, this is totally off-topic from my standard blog posts. Sorry to those who get distracted…not my fault! For those not in the know, I am an avid Lego collector. I love Lego. I collect lots of it…and I mean *lots*. I’ve run out of room to put my Lego creations…and I have more on the way at Christmas. It’s… Read more »

2 months went quickly…

      No Comments on 2 months went quickly…

So, this blog has now been active for 2 months. And I’ve been posting regularly. I feel like I should almost give myself a pat on the back for that. Excuse me a moment. Now that that’s sorted, I’ve gone back through my old posts and have noticed a not-unexpected but slightly saddening trend. Most of my post are gripes…. Read more »

Religious bias in the tech world…

And no, I’m not talking about actual religions here (insert mandatory reference to Flying Spahetti Monster ^_^), this is about technology religions, technology evangelism to the point where you’re blinded to all other options. Admit it, you’ve done it at least once in your life – we all have. I’m a Windows Systems Administrator. There. I said it. I’m *proud*… Read more »
