A pet hate of mine

I know a few people who will strongly disagree with me on this, but it's something that I absolutely hate seeing in computer systems.. Its Nullable Booleans...... Booleans represent two states, true, false.. They do not represent "Unknown" or anything else you might possibly find. If you need a third state, use something else.. an enumeration or something that carries the meaning of the "extra" state with it.

It's about time that ....

we can now report idiot drivers... Lucky I'm clean...

I'm going to make a habit of entering all motorist into this site that annoy me.. Starting with the 4x4 that made it impossible for me to overtake other cars all the way back from Batemens Bay on the weekend...

My new Toy

I finally did it. I went and got myself a new toy. I've turned of my old i-Mate PDA2k, and with it cleared up alot of room on my belt.. The JasJam is just awsome. It's small, faster and better looking.. I'm loving it.

It took me a whole 10 minutes to try out my first 3G video call.. what can I say, I'm a geek..

I've been tagged

Wow, I actually thought I might manage to duck this one, but Rory managed to hit me up. I guess it's time to air my dirty laundry.

1. I played AFL for the Gungahlin Jets, this year is going to be my 15th year playing.
2. I don't have any "Qualifications", as I left CIT to start working and never went back to finish.
3. I've been married now for 3 years to my wife Kama-Jay, though I've been together we've been together now for nearly 10 years. We have two little girls together aged 7 and 2.
4. I'm absolutely terrible at golf, though I love to play. I've decided that I really need to play a lot more and get some lessons.. If anybody wants a game, let me know..
5. And the biggest secret I've been hiding..... I play World of Warcraft...

As for tagging other people.. I think everybody I know has already been tagged.. So I'm going to take the easy way out and not tag anybody back.. ;)

I'm back, a valuable lesson or a timely reminder

It's been a while since I last updated my blog, mainly because I made a decision to take a bit of time off. Well, that time is over, and I am going to do my best to keep this site a little more up to date.

The first thing I decided to post was a timely reminder to everybody to make sure your work is backed up every day.. Why, simple.. I came into work this morning, and guess what... My computer was turned off. Pressing the power button resulted in a wonderful buzzing sound and a few flashing lights.

Luckily for me, a bit of poking, prodding, removing and re-inserting bits into the computer seemed to have fixed the problem for now. But I'm sure it's only a matter of time before something else goes.. So for me, it's time to make sure I shelf my work every night before I go home.. No exceptions..
