Dinky Island ambience

The ambience extravaganza continues with a 30 minute loop of the jungle sounds of Dinky Island from Monkey Island 2 – LeChuck’s Revenge Special Edition. I’ve been having a lot of fun playing through this game again… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this series is one of the best in…

Last drinks laws not right for ACT

I don’t support the proposed 3am last drinks rules for Canberra. I feel as though we’re just getting to the point where people are starting to see Canberra as a city with a vibe. We are finally starting to escape the sleepy country town image. With the new international flights starting, we’ll soon have an…

No clicks for you!

I don’t click on ads. Even when on the rare occasion they interest me I never click them. If I am interested I’ll open a new session and type the vendor’s address myself and navigate there “manually”. It’s a force of habit I’m happy to have, especially in 2016. So when a website serves me…

From the Boidem

You don’t find many plain-text websites these days. Boidem happens to be one, though. Written in Israel, there are some thoughtful posts about the internet, tech and life. Go have a look.

Ms Bramble said her grandson was unaffected by the shooting. “He is sitting opposite me eating pancakes and has no idea what he did. It was an accident, that is all it was.” It’s…

Naval Action Patch 9.65

A big patch for Naval Action dropped this week. There are some significant changes. As expected when I made the first tutorial video, there was a good chance it would go out of date rather quickly. I’ve only managed to play an hour or so worth of the new patch, so my brief observations are:…

Linkums for March

“Businessman” uses a .com to smear reporter. Hopefully Anonymous noticed and gets annoyed. My appearance was ravaged by “years of consuming hormone-packed fried chicken and stressing over money.” Now, I’d found a way to save my sinking career by writing negative articles about China and taking kickbacks from short sellers. Good goulash. But I’d add…
