On the way to Europe

03 July 2008

My big holiday begins!

It’s 2am in Singapore, the first stop off on my way to Italy, and I’m making use of the free internet facilities at the airport. That was the longest leg of the flight, the next two portions are each half an hour shorter. There’s sooo much to watch on the plane, but nothing can keep my attention, am going to try and sleep some more this leg.

Why Photography?

25 October 2007

Neil Creek posted a few weeks back, a wonderful item on the right question to ask about photos and photography. Why?

Having bought a DSLR a month ago, I’ve been struggling to get out and enjoy taking pictures. It’s time to sit down and work out why I want to, and rediscover some motivation.

New Job, New Design

MyNight LogoLast week I finally started work again after only about 3 months holiday. I’m not helping a Brisbane based web startup called MyNight. Everything’s going well so far, and it’s great not to be sitting around the house any more.

I’ve also changed the layout of my site. Hopefully only temporary (hah), and just a stock theme, but at least not THE stock theme.

Burning Video DVDs with K3b in Linux

13 February 2007

K3b LogoLast weekend it was finally time to sort out the mess of data on my computer. First task was to free up some space to move, and burning a few of the ripped DVDs would help a lot. I’ve managed before in linux, using the command line, but this time I wanted a GUI.

Low and behold, recent versions of K3b actually allow this, it was only a few months ago that I was foiled.

It’s nice when things (finally) just work!

Arapiles View From Tent

I’m back home now, after my two month summer climbing holiday taking in the best Australia has to offer. Starting out in the Blue Mountains in a house with QUT Cliffhangers, then continuing on camping at numerous places before ending up at Arapiles. Australia’s climbing ‘Mecca’.

It’s actually been a week and a half since I’ve been home, not a lot to report.

Fierce Hailstorm

Hail Storm
Hail storms are fun! A rather impressive specimen just roared through Brisbane. Luckily I was home to batten down the hatches.
