Just a random nutty thought: If I ever get into and make a drone (flying kind), I'm going to name it didgerizoom (after the musical kind). You saw it here first.

Are mobile phones a significant contributor to car accidents?
... no (Betteridge's Law ftw)
While mobile phones are a real distraction in the car and their use can result in serious accidents, real life accident data indicates that mobile phone use does not contribute significantly to crashes or fatalities. A study that analysed more than eight million actual hands-free phone calls placed over a period of five years found only two confirmed cases of crashes that occurred during phone use. Some state highway authorities in the US have co...

Is it just me, or does the PHP Elephant look like it's doing a cheeky fart? And am I the only one who finds that appropriate?

Marveling at the irony of a TV car seller's commercial that simulates browsing their web site, and on the browser's toolbar, there is AdBlock :-D

Awesome way to see the "sound barrier"

watching early Battle of the Planets eps (the kid-friendly remaster of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman)... I realised this: Mark is Dick. Jason, the "impulsive/reckless" team member is actually far better, in my opinion anyway.

I don't know if the American characters have anything much in common with the original Japanese, since the story was changed so much, but anyway...

Cases in point: twice now Mark has gone off on his own to solve missions without the rest of the team, to nearly disasterous consequence.

And in E04 (The Space Serpent), Jason was "reckless" for wanting to nuke the monster, but then Mark put a grieving daughter to a moral test and then blew the thing up with the nuke anyway... (failing his own moral test btw)!

Yep. Mark. He's a Dickhead

before I forget it: to copy user settings in Windows 7, just use EasyTransfer. It gets most things. Also regedit /e is your friend.

This past, and the pages it links to, seem to me like a great intro to the mysterious git, using an interface that doesn't suck
I love Emacs. I only started using it a few months ago, but I'm already hopelessly in love with its (unapparent) simplicity and crazy extensibility. Perhaps my custom hand-crafted .emacs, -- yes, I call it hand-crafted -- alongwith the fact...

Introduction

I'm just this guy, you know? 
 
I am a family man, father of three lovely boys. Happily married for 15 years, currently living in Hobart, Tasmania. I play musical instruments (Trombone/Timpani/Traps) and I hold a 2nd Dan ("black belt") in Taekwondo. I like Open Architecture computers, Open Source software, and Open Crown hats. Akubra, of course :D

On a professional level, I am a Computer Applications Support Engineer, focusing on the application of technology to business functions in finance and government, and bridging between the Developer, BA/QA  and Systems worlds, which I've been doing since before there was a "DevOps" movement. I have worked with major I.T. firms as well as a government owned forest management organisation. I am an experienced cat herder and specialize in fitting round pegs to square holes. Handy in a tight squeeze to help get that late project of yours over the line.

My strengths include systems administration and automation, configuration management, database design, development and implementation, change management, incident response and root-cause analysis. I know a very little about an awful lot of tech' -- enough to shoot myself in the foot and take a leg off. People seem to think this makes me a good person to come to when they are in a bind.

So far I've delivered.
