I got a bit sick of the previous theme i had whipped up to go with K2, so you may (or may not) have noticed that i switched back to Kubrick when i upgraded to 2.3. Today i bit the bullet and started putting together a new theme.
First let me lay down the back story on my plantronics headsets for you. Back in June 2007 i purchased a plantronics audio 550 dsp headset, for half price ($75AUD), 2 months later the headphones died. After realising i couldn’t find the the receipt, i purchased another set at full price ($150AUD) and made sure to keep the receipt, 2 months later (last week), the left headphone cup stops working.

I’ve been busy as hell over the past couple of weeks, works just been off the hook crazy at times and i’ve been busy with other projects outside of work. One of which is the car, the wheels turned up and so the suspension is now in the front, it definitely needs to go a little bit lower, but i’ll sort that out tomorrow when i do the back suspension and wheels.

So finally after many months of waiting my Work Emotion XT7’s turned up. 17×8 +32 is the size of choice and i’m probably going to run 215 R40 up front and 235 R45 in the back for tyres. Now to just get the tyres and get it all on. Continue reading
Fresh from the web awards, stylin in true flavour! Continue reading
First off, this wasn’t me, it was merely outside the office window when we came in this morning.
I stumbled across this fine little gem today via one of my feeds, 5 Regular Expressions Every Web Programmer Should Know it has some great little regexp pieces in it, like this complete email parsing function for php from Cal Henderson, the the programmer behind flickr.
Came home tonight to a nasty sound, my biggest and newest hard drive has “The click” but its still giving me data (be it slowly), thank god! I was down at PLE this morning waiting for them to open so i could get a new one and now i patiently sit back and copy off the 120 or so Gigabytes of data that i didnt have room for on my other drives last night.

Yeah so i’m bored, i’ve been messing about with the blog for the past few days, upgrading k2, upgrading the flickr plugin. This just results in all my customisations having to be coded back in.
Been working on the car a bit, interesting developments, may have to get a new turbo thanks to the first pic below.
A couple of the guys at work cooked up a beauty mini-free-set and we FINALLY got it out today. Continue reading
Theres a new arrival in our, my brother picked up a new cat last weekend, pic below.
Finally got the intercooler back fixed. It looks ok, it’s just a pity i didn’t get it welded before attempting silicone.
Aaand today i stepped on my O2 Xda Atom and broke it’s screen Continue reading
It’s my birthday today and well, normally that’d be awesome or at least mildly fun, but tonight i’m stuck at home SICK. This has happened before, it’s one of the downsides of having your birthday so close to the winter opening, but it can just make the birthday so miserable. Then again, thats probably a good thing im at home relaxing, now that i’ve put a quarter century on the clock. Continue reading
So it looks like i’ll be doing some work to my car i’ve been wanting to do for a while and one of those choices is wheels. I’m finding it pretty hard to choose at the moment and have it narrowed down to 5 nice looking 17″x8″ rims, some have a +32 offset, others a +35, some are also going to require the 5 stud upgrade.

Wow i’ve been slow and out of the java loop for the past few weeks, but heres a cool applet/html/swing/ajax mashup from Jasper Potts, Richard Bair and Ken Russell. Continue reading
I’ve been listening to this for a week or so now and i’ve gotta say, it’s impressive. The Hilltop Hoods and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and interesting chilled out twist to an awesome album. Continue reading
