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];.
On this day, ten years ago, I arrived in Melbourne as a teenager to attend university. I never thought that I would still be here, ten years later, working at a company located about 2 blocks away from the university.
This picture was taken earlier this evening. The intersection of Swanston St and La Trobe St, right at the heart of Melbourne CBD.
Melbourne’s weather may not be the best in the world, but it is home :).
