Kristy Bennet has replied with her idea of a good day and I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts. What's your idea of a good day?

A Good Day

Blog Catagories: 

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

More Of The Gardening Thing

Blog Catagories: 

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.

My Own Message To Conroy

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.

Who Speaks For You?

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?
