Time to take out the trash (BuzzMoo)

I’ve been preparing to format today, and have realised i’m in for some serious data juggling. I don’t quite have enough space to move all the stuff i want to save to a safe place, and i can’t be stuffed sending 10 or so gig accross the network, although i guess i have no choice….

Bake him away, toys!

City still burning. 400+ homes gone. Badcore. Fire was supposed to be coming in around this part of the city today too but so far no signs of it. If I were living at my previous house I’d be a bit more worried though. There’s a new addition in the Flash Archive too. It’s the…

State of Emergency + Sqishy = odd (BuzzMoo)

Fires still burn in and around Canberra, although at this point in time they seem to be under control. Forecast winds have not arrived, meaning that firefighters can get one up on the fires. Still, more homes are lost and up to 4 people dead now, it’s no good. There is the possibility of the…

Oh the humanity!

What I told you yesterday is that I returned from Newcastle. What I didn’t tell you is that I’d been away for 4 weeks and at some point in that time a circuit breaker in my house switched causing my refrigerator to no longer refigerate. Check it out in the latest Mert’s Kitchen.

Jokes aside (Mert)

Yeah this fire thing is getting pretty desperate. The better part of the entire state has been issued emergency warnings as well as an official state of emergency declaration. Figures are sketchy but reports of up to 100 houses destroyed are going round and at least one person is dead. Things are looking pretty grim…

Excite me (BuzzMoo)

Today would go on the charts as one of the most random days i’ve had in a while. This year, at least. I was sent to Fyshwick to a government auction. Only problem was that the agency didn’t actually operate there any more, but i wasn’t told (but ended up being blamed). More OzForces stuff,…

MIA (Mert)

Decided if I was ever going to get back on the net it’d have to be now, in the daytime. I SHOULD still be asleep but desperate times call for desperate measures. I think this is about the 4 week mark of my Newcastle stay. One of my longer visits I think? If I said…

Sorry, kids, there’ll be no more sleeping this week…(Mert)

What’s the most scary thing you can find in your room at midnight? Is it a) Lee Huntsman, Ph.D Professor, Provost, University of Washington b) Stan Huntsman, Ex-USA track coach c) This delicious French Huntsman cheese d) Jerry Huntsman, Some old footballer or something e) A fat huntsman spider I put it to you that…

Warning: MAY have side effects. (BuzzMoo)

Well, the lovley people at Grunenthal GmbH (D-52224 Stolberg Germany) decided that it was not a good idea to put such a warning on their boxes of medecine. Also, my doctor didn’t warn of side-effects or any other such nonsense. Well it really does have side effects. It put me to sleep alright, actually boardered…

0x0ring the b0x0r (Mert)

Everything has a way of going horribly wrong for me. Well maybe the glass is just half full but I seem to miss out on an awful lot, especially when it comes to music. St. Germain snuck by on tour just as I was getting into it. I missed out on seeing Chem. Bros. in…

Glandular fever (BuzzMoo)

Owwww. I haven’t slept very well for the past 3 nights. It’s been interesting checking the stars every hour or so, see which way they fly. Every time i start to drift off to sleep, i get this dream that feels “hard”. It’s boring and frustrating and it just sits there looping. Roy from OzForces…

Fighting the power (Mert)

Raise your hand if you spent yesterday (which is actually two days ago) demolishing a church. Take my word for it that my hand is rasied. Well it’s not raised but I assure you that if my arms weren’t so damned sore it would be. Here’s the story: Some family friends of ours are renovating…

Christmas Newcastle style (Mert)

If you look over in the rants/misadventures section you’ll see a new one – ‘Christmas Newcastle style’. Just a little article I did on a pretty spectacular house around these parts. Also moved the posts from December over to the archives. You know the drill, check them out if you missed any (or want to…
