Hi everyone! I've moved over here from, since my enthusiasm far outstripped any sort of actual talent I had, haha.

I live in Western Sydney with my lovely wife Kristina and our half dachshund/half Maltese dog Beanie, and am a hobbyist coder and photographer, Apple enthusiast, and general all-round geek.

I present to you another entry in the ongoing series "Beanie lying under things".


We got the ice cream started this morning, only used a third of the mix and that ended up filling up almost the entirety of the ice cream maker's bowl. Had some now with the hot fudge and sprinkles, and I'm honestly impressed at how delicious it is! It really tasted exactly like the ice cream you'd buy at the shops.

Meech has now set the tone for today and I hope I can live up to his example. #MastoCats

Tonight's game of Warhammer Underworlds was an absolute rollercoaster. We went for the core Direchasm warbands, by the end of the first round it was looking like an absolute blowout for Kristina, she was up 6-0, and was in the lead up until the very end of the last round. I managed to scrape in with all three of my objectives in hand at the very end of the game, and it ended up being a win for me at 12-7.

BOOOOOOOOOM, that's two straight years of closing all three rings on my Apple Watch! 🎉💪🏻

UGH Lightroom shared those photos in the wrong order, so the descriptions are around the wrong way.

Kristina and I both have the day off today, so we went for a wander around Nurragingy Reserve (making a point to do it first thing in the morning before it got too warm). The wind was lovely but damn is that direct sun getting hot already.

There we go, Prince Duvalle is all but done! I'm just waiting on a paint order that contains Games Workshop's "Blood for the Blood God" paint, which is a really rich glossy red paint for creating blood effects. Going to put some on his hand and down the side of his mouth so it looks like he's just fed.

I'm developing a new type of genre, it's trip-hop for kids. I'm calling it "skip-hop". The first band I'm signing is Portishead Shoulders Knees and Toes

Me, in tears: you can't just call every system you happen to dislike "technical debt"
IT Manager *points at a seagull* technical debt

I have heard hell, and it is somebody blowing their nose in to an unmuted mic on a large zoom call.


Oh there was also a tub of microwaveable hot chocolate fudge that I forgot to show as well.

In lieu of being able to have our usual end-of-financial-year party, work sent us out a package of goodies. You could choose from an ice cream maker, projector, uh, and a one or two other things I forget. I got the ice cream maker and it arrived today!

The existence of pet peeves implies the existence of wild peeves

Getting back into painting by FINALLY starting the Crimson Court from Warhammer Underworlds which I got back in April!

Look out world*, it's 27˚C outside and I'm wearing shorts!

*Not actually because we're still in lockdown.
