New server

I’ve moved the blog and photo sites onto a new web server. Hopefully this won’t mean anything different for most of you out there in Internet-land. Let me know if you seem to be having any problems with the site though.

Welcome to the new blog

Hi all! Welcome to our new blog.

We plan to use this to keep everyone up to date with what’s happening. With a growing family there’s always something going on. Add in a few travel plans and we should have plenty to post about.

Please feel free to comment and tell us what’s happening on your side too.

Another neglected blog

I guess people start these things with the best intentions, but … you know how most of them end up. This one was no different. Seemed like a good idea but stuff gets in the way and before you know it everything’s way out of date.

So, what has been happening? It’s been just over a year since the last entry so quite a bit has happened. I spent 12 months having fun selling parts for my favorite little sports car, the MX5. That was great – it was so nice being able to chat to people all day about cars, racing, etc.

In May I was offered a web development job and as much fun as the MX5 job was, the web job was a little more … financially interesting. 🙂 So here I am – back working for the NSW state Government programming ASP.Net and SQL. It’s interesting in it’s own way but not nearly as much fun as chatting about cars and planning track days.

New monitor, new blog

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog!

I thought since I have my shiny new monitor that this was as good a time as any to start writing stuff down (I know, I know: any excuse). 🙂

The monitor is great. It’s a little bigger than I was expecting (24″ doesn’t sound that much bigger than 17″) but that’s the kind of surprise I like. Terrific for games, which should go without saying, and also great for work. I can fit two full size A4 pages with space to spare. Graphics and video work are much easier with space for the work files as well as the multitude of toolbars and palletes that those programs seem to have.
