Something just occurred to me this evening and it has to do with software companies and the monopoly ‘lock in’ tactics that some use.Â Microsoft was pulled up over forcing Internet Explorer on people in XP many moons ago now and I’m sure we’re all completely happy with how it eventually turned out, most of us use Firefox and Windows now recognises something called a ‘default browser’.
Fast forward a few years and we’ve seen Apple since day one, ram iTunes down the throat of every ipod owner in the world. This was understandable, after all Continue reading →
The new signage at PerthWeb went up bright and early this morning, after a few months of “wheres your building im driving round looking for it and can’t find it” “it has a big TPC on the front” “oh i’m right out the front”, so i guess our customers will be happy.Â This also bring our new logos for PerthWeb, Webclick, glyFX & Freckle Creative to the public eye, finally!

So i got in thanks greatly to some wonderful friends, though i did have to ditch another friend to go, which was a bit crap. Some videos and pics after the break. The hyde park hotel was a nice venue, but once again, just like Pegz @ the rosemount, the sound was waaay over the top.

Recently ours and a few of our neighbours telephones have been atrociously beaten down by line noise. As you can guess this basically means, constant DSL dropouts and a phone line that when it’s stuffed, is impossible to make any kind of call on. Continue reading →
Earlier today i was chatting with someone about having seen the new Tim Burton flick, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and saying how i thought the movie itself was good, but that i just couldn’t get past all the singing of dialogue that happens. Yes I understand it’s a musical, I understand that this is the way things are done in the land of musicals. Unfortunately it’s just not my thing, musical aside, it’s actually a really good film.

Today we watched some presentations from Microsoft on Windows Presentation Foundation, while it was nice to see some of the technology and how it can be used, theres no way this was presented anywhere near as good as it could have been. Continue reading →
Thought some of you may get a kick out of something we’ve been working on here at work. It’s a little something we call Pimp My Sled, this is just something fun we’ve done to celebrate christmas. Continue reading →
So, i just received a phone call from my brother, some stingey arsehole has decided it was his right to break into our house and steal a whole slew of things. When is the world going to grow up? this is just bullshit, both myself and my brother have worked our arses off to get everything we own and then along comes some piece of shit and steals it all.
