The Blog Lives

So yeah… I have had a dead blog for far too long. So I’m bringing it back mostly so I can just post random stuff, and provide a central location for my info. Facebook has just become such a cesspool that I can’t imagine posting my stuff there. Sure, family and friends are there but that’s why I intend to keep my stuff here and link to it from Facebook.

It’s Been Too Long

It’s been so long since I last wrote that I don’t really know where to begin. Mostly, my life has changed radically during the last 18 months, and it’s been a whirlwind. Those closest to me know all the details… those from further afield… well, email me and I’ll fill you in.  Suffice to say, there’s no point assigning blame because no-one is blameless. But the new reality is, and

Disappointed, Hurt and Tired

Isn’t it amazing? How life just always seems to confirm your worst suspicions, even when you hope for the best. Today has left me feeling bitter, tired, disappointed and incredibly hurt. It’s also left me with a certain sense of inevitability that I had been putting aside (I thought) for the good of those closest to me. It now appears that an attempt at a power trip has taught me

First Post in almost a Year!

OK… second post. 😛 Well, I just got it confirmed and totally official; I’m going to VMworld this year in San Francisco! Woohoo! I can’t wait. I had a fantastic time last year meeting up with old friends and making new friends while I was at it. It was a truly incredible experience, at least in part because VMware are quite open to allowing competing vendors in. There was a

Quick Update

Life has taken loads of turns of late… for the better, and the worse. Still, I’m surviving, getting by and am actually still alive. To who’ve emailed lately wondering if I’m OK… thank you… I am. It’s just been rather hectic and trying to respond to all the people who’ve been in touch is tough… but I WILL be in touch with all of you. I’m hoping to add much

Last Chance to See

Dude! Seems the Star Trek Experience is closing in Las Vegas. I guess when I go out there for VMworld in September I’d better make a point to go see! Thanks, Jallarzie for the recommendation… bummer it’s closing! Blogged with the Flock Browser

Definitely out of it

Well, another blog entry… though sometimes I do wonder if anyone reads my prattlings. I’ve been depressed lately. That’s part of the reason I’ve not been blogging. That and the fact that in order to combat the depression I’ve not been home much. As a result, since I don’t get online from work since I actually now have a job that requires me to actually DO some work (unlike my

OMFG, a bit of History Surfaces

Back in the Saddle

Yay! OK… for those who’ve followed my automotive adventures to-date, my car blew a head gasket back in January. Because of finances and stuff I had to hold off on repairing it because I already had three vehicles and didn’t feel fixing my E46 was worthwhile. For those who don’t know, an E46 is the internal BMW code for the model of 3 series I have; See here for more information

Hacked, By Jove!

Well, OK… maybe not. Maybe I was just hacked by someone with a script and a desire to build his bot army. Either way, this site was hacked over the weekend. Yay. I think. Apparently, there’s a bug in Coppermine (which I happen to use to host the picture gallery) which is currently allowing a scripted hack. This hack inserts an invisible frame into every page that hits some script,
