Yuko Buys Moon

Yuko wanted to use one of my Moon pictures in her blog, so I sold her the non-exclusive rights for AUD$1.00. The result can be seen here (and in the picture below).

Meanwhile, I took yet another set of Moon pictures. This is the best of them…

Baroque

Yuko came to the city today and met me after work. We met at the ‘Chocolate Shop’ – a nearby cafe which specialises in chocolate – where I took the second coffee picture (above).

Then we proceeded to the Baroque Bistro. Yuko had not been there before, but I had attended a recent team lunch there. Yuko liked it, and became friendly with the staff – taking photographs of them for use on her blog.

Tree Massacre

 

The brother of the Magnificent Gardener came today although we were not expecting him until tomorrow. He massacred the trees along the side of our driveway. Then he decamped without asking for money…

 
The Dell technician also visited us again and this time he fixed Sky adequately. He said he had to replace the RAM. Yuko was very happy and took both her laptops to Epitome for a public demonstration of stereo blogging.

There was an article in the ‘Icon’ liftout of today’s SMH about ‘pawn’ sites. As I am a player in this field, it was of some interest to me. However, they didn’t mention my name or my pawn site!

Access Denied

 

The free wi-fi at Lane Cove is working again after Harley Davidson spoke to them about the recent problems. We were both merrily Internetting, when I encountered this screen, telling my that I was not allowed to access my own site…

 

Blocked!

Blocked!

 

I was blocked from accessing the comment moderation section of this very blog! I assume this is because most of the comments promote the viewing of lewd acts.

Perhaps this is part of the government’s Internet filtering trial, but I was shocked and appalled and by this unwarranted censorship.

iPhone Blogging

I looked at my ‘3’ phone this morning it said “Inactive USIM” and I couln’t get it to work. So I checked my iPhone and lo! It works…

Connected to Optus!

Connected to Optus!

This is strange, because the problem with porting the number has not been resolved. It looks like they just decided to do it without Yuko’s authorisation.

I also installed an application which allows me to blog from the iPhone. This means I’ll be able to post blog entries from the remotest corners of Riverview whenever something exciting happens…

Moon

Very, very early this morning, Yuko decided she had to photograph the moon. I was required to assist with some technical details.

Mitsy’s lights were not on – that’s just the reflection of the flash. Here is Yuko’s picture (taken from her blog). I don’t know what the writing says…

New Blog

Fear not readers! It’s still just as wonky, but it’s a new look blog!

I have decided to start using ‘real’ blogging software if the form of WordPress. It has a number of advantages over that crappy software I’ve been using for the last five years.

I considered converting all previous posts to this new format, but decided to just link to them instead.

Note that there is still a bug with the “Recent Comments” display on the sidebar. I’m working on that.
