The thoughts, opinions, happenings, and just plain ramblings of a seemingly boring person.

The perfect storm

Well this afternoon was probably the worst storm i've seen. I was home by myself and it was absolutely vicious: it stated around 4:40 and was over before 5. Our outdoor timber blinds were completely ripped out, and little pieces of them went everywhere, two 1 meter high pots with soil and a tree in them were toplled over, and lightning struck probably less than 100m away (really loud!!!), and seems to have knocked out our phone, which is not working, our half-full (or half-empty?) garbage bin was relocated almost 5 metres, and we seem to have collected in our … Read more →

Gallery finished

Well i've finally finished installing the Gallery. Therefore the photos page is gone, and any links to it should be broken.

In my typical about-face style i changed my mind on which PHP gallery i was going to use, and decided rather to go with DAlbum.

Right now there is only one album in the gallery because i don't have many pictures, but Andrew and Tim will be pleased to know that their photos are in there. I considered the possibility of allowing people to automatically post their own photos to the gallery, but decided against it because … Read more →

More photos

Andrew sent me some photos as well, see them at the Photos page.

Looked around for a good php photo gallery. Decided on this one. I'll spend the next day or two installing and configuring it.

Played futsal tonight in the last round of the normal season, and lost pretty convincingly (can't remember the score) to the top team. We finished second to them. Finals start next week, and i'm not looking forward to playing these guys in the final (if we get there).… Read more →

Back to normal……(?)

Well it looks like everything has finally settled down after the server move (hopefully). If anyone posted anything that didn't show up, just let me know.

Well today is Australia Day, and today i would like to renew my opinion that Australia should become a Republic, and have our own head of state. I mean, really, other than then, lets say those passionately British, and the older people in our community that still have an affection and alleigence to Britain and the Queen, what have we got to lose? I recognise that it would change absolutely jack in the way … Read more →

Testing….

Hey, not sure if this will actually work or not... Today my hosting company migrated all the accounts over to new servers, so everything with the site has been a bit mucked up. PHP not working, the admin panel saying that my disk usage jumping almost 200MB, the shoutbox and this blog alternately showing/not-showing new posts, etc, etc.

If there is anything screwy happening with the site (such shoutbox posts dissapearing or not showing), I would appreciate if someone could let me know.

Anyway, today played indoor soccer and lost again (2-3). After i got home a massive storm came … Read more →

Another addiction

Well, i've come into another phase of addiction, but this time its worse because i've actually spent money on it! My new addiction, or rather renewed addiction, is emulated games. I've now gotten myself hooked on the old Sonic the Hedgehog games (see pictures below). I'm using a Sega emulator called Gens.

So after i started playing Sonic (1,2, and 3), i came to the conclusion that playing the games on the keyboard was not good enough. So I went out and bought myself a joypad (just like a console controller, but for the computer). I bought the MS … Read more →

I have two owies :(

Played futsal last night, against the fiery Greeks (other greeks), and ended up missing most of the second half after being haxed. Lucky i didn't end up dislocating my knee, but it sure did (and does) hurt. Even worse i don't bruise easily, so i've got nothing to show for it, and everone at home thinks i'm making a big deal out of nothing!

Anyway, we won the quite thrilling game 3-2, which capped of another memorable game between our two teams. This means we have a guranteed 2nd place on the table with the finals starting soon. Go E.R.T! … Read more →

New Game: Simon. Arggh!!!

Just put up a new game: Simon. A memory/follow the sequence type of thing. Check it out in games section. Sometimes it is so infuriatingly frustrating i feel like grabbing the colour circle thing right out of the monitor and throwing it out the window frisbee-style. Come to think of it, i feel like doing that to my computer every other day...

The hosting company that i just signed up for has just closed its doors to any new customers till Feb 1st. It seems that they are overwhelmed! Looks like i just got in!

The 1st of Feb … Read more →

Just another entry

I just wanted to make an entry for the sake of making an entry. I really just wanted to make an entry on something i did on that actual day.

Hmmm lets see.

Today I: woke up, did a bunch of stuff, and then went back to sleep.

(From Weird Al: Your Horoscope For Today, off his Running With Scissors album. Weird Al rocks)… Read more →

The day after

I woke up yesterday, early for a Sunday, to go and play this weeks round at indoor soccer. Only one other person from my team actually showed, so we had to borrow some players for us to at least play. We played with members from a team called the Scrub Turkeys: guys with a green Flinstone-esque top, with little bush turkeys all over. They played well, and were great sports too. We lost anyway, so that meant that i didn't have to pay (the whole) match fee becuase it counted as a forfeit because only two of us showed.… Read more →
