There's no place like
No TVbugsy

We have been renting a bunch of appliances for the past couple of months while we got the cash together to buy. One of those appliances was a television. Last week we managed to find a fridge and washing machine to replace the rentals, so we decided to send all the rentals back… Now for the forseeable future, we have no television.

It’s been really wierd tonight. Especially when the first thing I feel like doing when I get home is watching a repeat of The Simpsons, even though it’s one I’ve seen 12 times (though sometimes there’s the odd gem I haven’t seen at all… not often, but sometimes. Oh well now we might have to find some hobbies! Maybe it’s time to get my camera out again, I’m thinking about doing a Portrait photography course in a month or so. I suck at portrait photography, so it might be good!

Hmmm, it could be the first step to actually properly getting back into writing on this thing…

Stay tuned, we’ll be right back after these messages…

It’s been far too long… I think I need to get back into the mindset that I have a website and I should update it, mainly as a record for myself than anything else. It’s quite cool looking back over the past few years posts and remembering the places I’ve been and the things I’ve done… So all going well, I’m back. First post tomorrow. Probably.

A few things, I’m moving the pics primarily to picasaweb. I tried Singapore Picture Gallery, it was nice, but I just couldn’t get it to work cleanly in Wordpress - mostly due to the fact I’m a bit of a hacker when it comes to PHP and CSS. I’m going to spend the next few days/weeks uploading photos to my picasaweb space (here), and hopefully get a page running here tracking a feed from there.

Stay tuned.

I’ve added all my daily photos to this gallery, so check ‘em out.

It was a wonderful scratchy journey, thank you to everyone who supported me, I raised $390 all up. Next year I’m going bigger!

A little late into the action I know, but I’ve been participating in Movember this November and the mo is taking over my upper lip. I’m going to post all the photos I’ve taken up til now, and for the rest of the mo-nth add a new one each day.

This is the email I sent out when I started…

Hi all,

The time has come for me to grow a mo for a real reason other than taking the piss… During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ll be growin’ a ‘tache. I’m bringing the Mo back because I’m passionate about changing the state of men’s health.

Male health is a major issue, did you know:

Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
Every year in New Zealand nearly 600 men (in Australia 2,700) die of prostate cancer - more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.

Depression affects 1 in 6 men - Most don’t seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help me change the face of men’s health by sponsoring my mo; to all the guys out there, join me.

Please go to, enter my Rego number which is 38443 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible (in Australia, at least).

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men’s health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

Now I like Korean BBQ as much as the next guy, but this is taking it to a WHOLE new level…
Take one USB cup warmer, add 30 USB connections and voila! instant computer BBQ!
