You know what a good day is?
A good day is when you go out into your garden and see that you actually achieved a crop.
A good day is sending your kids off to school and pre-school happy.
A good day is fixing that pain in the arse bug that you've been trying to nail for the past two weeks.
A good day is cranking up your favourite music to 11.
A good day is realising that "hey, you do know what the hell you're talking about!"
A good day is getting into the groove.
Guess what today is

Okay it's about time for another post in the epic saga that is the Purser family garden.
First off, my god Zuchinni plants are hardy beasts. Our Zuchinni patch was getting pretty crowded, to the point of ridiculousness really. So I dug one of them out and transplanted it into the pot where we were trying to grow a few pumpkins. By that afternoon it was looking very wilted and I was sure that it was going to survive, but lo and behold, the next morning there was new growth and it's been going strong ever since.

Given the fact that:
a) I've managed to hose my political blog in moving it from Drupal 5 to 6 and
b) Stephen Conroy and the Labor Party's "brilliant" (please note the quote marks) Internet filtering plan has been getting plenty of air time lately. I thought I would post a message that I sent to the Senator for Thinking of The Children several months ago.
I am writing to express my grave concerns with regards to your plans to introduce a Mandatory ISP Filtering scheme.

So I've added a new feature to the blog, I've finally started splitting stuff up into catagories. For the moment it's going to be limited to General, Biz and Gardening but will expand.
This is my first post in the Gardening Catagory so enjoy ;)

Sitting here with a rotten head cold I was reading this impressive post by Matt Bottrell on Jim Zemlins comments regarding Sun, Linux and Windows. It started me thinking (or it could have been the coffee, don't know). Who speaks for you in the community?

If you're in the Lismore area then tune into local community radio station 2ncr tonight. I'm going to be joining the crew on Friday Night Tech to shoot the breeze about the show, Open Source and anything else that comes to mind. The show starts at 10:00pm so listen in.

I'm looking for some doco on how to manage Plone via XMLRPC. Specifically I want to be able to create, edit and delete Plone sites. Unfortunately my google foo is lacking in this department so any pointers would be most appreciated.

Aside from the Collaboration and new media stuff we also do PC Cleanups and Repairs as part of our business. Mostly it's word of mouth stuff, not huge but it's enough.
One thing I have seen more than enough of in my time doing this job is the so called "Vista Ready" budget laptop. That's the el-cheapo laptop available from $[MAJOR RETAILER] with el-cheapo specs, including 512MB of RAM. This they then decided to stick Vista on.
