I've decided to retire this blog — I don't really see myself updating it any time soon, and haven't for over two years anyway. I intend to leave the content on-line for the forseeable future, but have converted it to a static site. As a result, dynamic things like search and comments aren't really going to work.

You can find me on Twitter or on Google+ if you like. Alternatively, I'm usually on IRC as LawnGnome on Freenode.

Thanks for reading!

Sputtering in Neutral

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

I haven’t had much motivation to blog lately, as is doubtless apparent. After the relaxation of Christmas and New Year, work didn’t so much creep up on me as hit me over the head with a sledgehammer repeatedly, which has pretty much sapped me of any energy I might have had to write, or exercise, or do anything much beyond work and watch cricket.

I’m hoping that going to LCA next week will help me to get back into the swing of things. Certainly last year’s ended up being a great way to kickstart the year, both on a professional and personal level, and I’m hoping that this year’s will be no different. If only there was some way I could work in a side-trip to Queenstown again.

Ah well. A man can dream.

Ah, Hazy Memories…

It’s so old it has tooth marks from starving humans trying to find food after the Toba event, but it’s still funny: How many Perth students does it take to change a light bulb?

For reference, my high school’s entry:

Governor Stirling Senior High – Two. One to change the bulb and one to figure out how to get high off the old one.

File that one under it’s funny because it’s true.
