The hours are much less compared to ten years ago, but coding after work is still the best way to unwind and relax.
I started reading GPF Comics when I just started working the IT industry in 2001. The above strip has always been my favourite, geeks on coding as a hobby :).
GPF Comics website still keeps its retro design from the late 90s.
Before Twitter, I ranted on mX, a local free daily newspaper.
19 October 2007, on Connex’s performance.
10 January 2008, I can’t remember which incident triggered this rant, but cricket as a ‘sport’ was filled with too much drama.
15 February 2008, on Brendan Nelson’s ‘apology’.
I decided to retire when my rant made the section’s headline.
Update (02/11/2012): In retrospective, I was curious whether I could hack my name into the newspaper, and how many times it could be done. I cared about public transport and social issues, not so much on cricket though. I never thought that I would use those punch lines as a form of a real life hackery.
Here’s my review of the iPhone…
I’m not an Apple fanboy, I started using an iPhone several months ago, I give credit where credit is due. Despite all the criticisms about Apple, they still make the best consumer products on earth, ’nuff said.
Update (04/12/2012): I found an old photo, from ~1997, of a Macintosh that my dad used for his work (which I borrowed for playing Sim Tower). I then moved to Australia in 1998 and never used any Apple product since then, until I bought a MacBook Pro in 2009, and I was reminded how Apple products were teh awesome [tm];.
