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.

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.

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 »

The “martyr” complex of women in IT

Been meaning to write something on this for a while, but it keeps slipping my mind. I’ve been at Tech.Ed 2012 on the Gold Coast this week and it’s brought this topic right to the forefront of my mind, especially after speaking with many fabulous, fantastic, inspirational women! One of the questions that often gets asked by other people, not… Read more »

Where to start? Ah yes. The beginning.

For those of you who know me, being quiet or reserved isn’t in my character. When I have an opinion on something, I tend to speak my mind. Over the last few weeks, thinking about things in my work life, my social life, my gaming life, I’ve realised that I have quite a few opinions on matters than I’m personally… Read more »
