  • Blog Post: Walking the Walk

    I love my job – not least because much of the time this is my office. All made possible via the magic of wireless and mobile devices. Speaking of walking, I was on the way back from the Gym the other day and spotted this – I didn’t know we’d branched out quite this far …
  • Blog Post: Illusions - How can this be true?

    Michael's twirling dancer link generated a lot of chatter, but this one seems even less fathomable to me Michele's posted an image as an example of your brain messing with your head (as it were). In this image, the squares marked A and B are the same colour! Don't believe me? I didn't either, so I snipped...
  • Blog Post: Recognising Talent

    <disclaimer>If it's not obvious from the content, I have a personal interest in this post</disclaimer> I was going to thinly disguise this post as a follow on from Frank 's ASP.NET Site of the {insert time period here} , but I'm just going to boast. Telstra's Business Women's Awards have...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Day 0 - ASP.NET Ajax Pre-Conference Session

    On Sunday, I attended Jeff Prosise 's ASP.NET Ajax pre-conference session. I love watching people like Jeff present.

Of course, this is something VFP has been able to do for ever: ************************************************** *-- Form: form1...

    Tech•Ed looms ever nearer Consumes all my time See you on the other side If you need a Tech•Ed Haiku for your OOF , see Dave in the Dev'Garten - he's offered to write you one .
  • Blog Post: Analogy for explaining memory to computer novices

    My wife's in the process of revising a couple of her music theory workbooks at the moment. Her workhorse machine isn't really up to the task of running InDesign , Sibelius , Acrobat , Outlook and Word with its half GB of memory. Her system is paging a bunch of things on and off the HDD. I explained to...
  • Blog Post: Testing BlogJet

    Following Dave and Mitch ’s lead, I’ve installed BlogJet . We’ll see how it goes.
  • Blog Post: Why I Love Server-Side E-Mail (and contacts and appointments)

    I'm on holidays in Far North Queensland (I got special permission from my wife to come to the internet cafe as long as I wasn't doing work - it's a good thing I love technology for technology's sake isn't it). I was wandering down the main drag in Port Douglas when I realised that my HP6315 had experienced...
