Trekked out to a college today for lunch.  Every week the kids put on a restaurant-quality lunch for a bargain price.  So four of us went out.  And rolled back to work.  Lots of fun :)  Would definitely go back again.
Cause I'll never remember them next time.

  • You have allow computers you want to connect to SNMP in the security tab of the SNMP service properties
  • You have to allow your firewall software to allow the connection from the other computer (in my firewall this was in at least two places grrrr)

The Reader

The Reader
Went and saw The Reader last night.

I had absolutely no idea what it was about before seeing it, aside that it starred Kate Winslet.

So the first half was a little "meh" because I wondered if that was going to be the whole story.

But then it got more interesting where it delved into morality issues. 

It was a bit disjointed (the flashbacks were fine, but they weren't in order) but still pretty good.

Well according to the pedometer anyway :)

The 39 Steps

We went along with Dave tonight to see The 39 Steps at the Canberra Play House.  Was a lot of fun, I quite enjoyed it.  The two actors who did all the other roles were great.  It's only based loosely on the book, but wouldn't mind reading it some time.

Woke up at 6:15 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so quite sleepie now...

Slowly slowly..

Please just get it on and be done with it! Seriously!  ;)
Stu and Dave and I toddled along to the Darwin exhibition at the museum today.  It wasn't too bad, but a lot of reading under not great lighting and lots of peoples to negotiate.  Spent around two and a half hours there.  Admittedly I actually learnt rather a lot, not having known too much about the story behind Darwin's life.

Of course I had to go look up the connection between him and the city, and sure enough, wikipedia notes that the city of Darwin was in fact name after Charles Darwin.  So there you go!

Tonight (after several vodkas and radiator fluid) watched an old video of Knight Rider (the recent pilot/movie).  Man it was lame!! I mean I used to love the old tv series, but the old series was exceedingly lame after repeat viewings in recent years.  But this telemovie was even lamer, if such a thing were possible.  And the voice of KITT (Knight Industries THREE Thousand) was just *wrong* !!  For some reason I found the cameo by the Hoff majorly cool!  (that's how lame the rest of the thing was!)  Maybe that's why the rest of the series was never broadcast here......

Walk

So I decided today that when the guy I work with is a foot taller than me but only 4kg heavier than me, something needs to be done about my weight (mind you, he's just scrawny, and I can drink him under the table ;) )

Actually I decided earlier in the day that I should have a go at walking home at least once a week.  Fridays would be the best day because of time, and the fact I wear my sneakers to work on Fridays.

So I walked home.

6km, 72 minutes, 8500 steps later...

The balls of my feet are still sore - definitely need to wear better socks if I'm going to do it again..

Where's Fifi???

Last year on Fifi Box's birthday I listened to Triple M's podcast of the morning show to hear what went on on the day  and reminisce about Sydney.  But today I tried the same thing and it appears she is gorrnnne!!  All the google links to her on the site are broken.  Epic fail!!

RIP Lisa
