an Update, with amazingly enough no photos...

Got to love 20% off sales at book stores and a Steady income. Unfortunately though six new books aren't going to last that long. 29 hours after having acquired them 2 are finished so 1270 pages read, thankfully work slows things down otherwise I'd probably have finished another one or two by now!

Anyway Hamilton's much the same as always though things have been getting decidedly warmer. The recent interest in Ginger beer has lead me to start experimenting with making my own, and the results seem reasonable though unfortunately I can't get the ginger flavour as strong as I like, still means theres plenty of experiment to do!

Work is somewhat more interesting than normal, mainly becuase there are a lot of major changes coming down the pipeline so I'm getting involved in helping sort out some aspects of that.

Have managed to visit a few places headed up to Auckland Labour weekend to visit various cousins and AR at some point (when I run out of books and computer games) I'll post a few photos from there. Also as those who're on facebook might have noticed headed over to Taurunga for an extended family gathering. It's good to catch up with Aunt's, Uncles and cousins you've not seen for years or ever before!

Apart from reading and playing around with the camera have been playing a few computer games recently, seeing this last quarter has been rather crazy for releases of good games (S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Skies, Mass Effect, Fallout 3, Spore and soon the next NWN2 expack).

What's impressive though is to realise that in 4 weeks I'll be back in Chch for a briefly and then for a bit longer after christmas. Will be good to cya all

An interesting little tool/form of Art

Found this tool today when I was looking something up Webpages as Graphs. Throw it your website address and it generates a rather pretty (if highly cpu intensive) graph of your site based on the html tags used to make it up!

Any way here is an example of what my site looks like!

What do your blogs/websites look like in it?

Yeah yeah I'm bored again...

Heck next time I'm bored you might even get some landscapes of Auckland or perhaps Taurunga, if I get around to looking through them, or maybe even some cute little dogs. :-)

As usual more at




And just for something different!
