Error Message To Scratch Your Head By

Friday, June 16th, 2006

“Logicians - any feedback?”
Occasionally there’s a stunned moment when we look at our computer screens and wonder what the programmers were thinking when they inserted an error message. Its kind of funny to think this line was written out of context over at Grisoft, the makers of AVG Anti-Virus (highly recommended by the way), but […]

“The mark was 25.5 out of 30″
With the KXA252 Artificial Intelligence exam due next week (and yeh I’ll have to do some study) I finally got hold of my second assignment results.
The mark was 25.5 out of 30 - which considering my tutor appeared a tough marker compared to some its not too shabby at […]

Why Are You A Dick For Deep Linking To Images?

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

“Hey why dont you go stick the pig up your wellfare check”
The heading is self-explanatory - this is a post about why Corey’s comment makes such a dick out of himself even to consider he has a right to suck bandwidth from other sites by deep linking to images. In the inarticulate babble of a […]

What’s With Hobart Metro’s Culture?

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

“Old people are not an inconvenience to their bus schedule”
As a regular Metro bus passenger in Hobart its noticable when trends emerge in bus driver behaviour. Patterns of bad behaviour have a way of working through organisations via the tea room and really should be addressed before they become general culture within the organisation itself. […]

Where Were You On 666 Norty Day?

Tuesday, June 6th, 2006

“Listen to some norty music like Bad to the Bone“
Its school holidays so the child, or one of them, sits in the lounge watching a teen video. Linden is at art school giving a half hour talk on her masters progress followed by a half hour of questions and clarification (very ick). The boy is […]

Internet: 30 Years From 2006

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

“The Internet infrastructure was designed 30 years ago”
An amazing mind bend of the world at large is this fixation on the Internet and the World Wide Web as being a stable entity in itself which will always be and cross yourself three times before leaving the room.
Is this how it will always be? No. Whatever […]

End Of Week 13 And Exam Ho

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

“I’ve found two to three units are just enough to keep me interested”
First, as a post mortem on this first semester, I’ll have to say that never ever will I only do one unit again unless I’m working full time. Its got a way of not having any emergency, not being challenging enough, and in […]

“Do you want a widdle white wabbit or a thoft, fwuffy bwack wabbit”
A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks, “Excuthe me, do you have any widdle wabbits?”

My birthday went well and one of my presents from Linden were tickets to Big Brothel, the 2006 Uni Revue, at the Theatre Royal. Not just any old seats though - she got us seats AA 17 and AA 18 in the Dress […]
