It's a little bit smoky in Sydney this morning.

The ride to the office is going to suck!

In September, Telstra shutdown the 1194 Australian talking clock after 66 years.

To keep a bit of Australian phone history alive I've recreated it. Naturally it's on extension 1194 internally, but I've also pointed numbers to it covering timezones across Australia:

02 9099 4494 – Sydney/Melbourne/etc
07 3667 9594 – Brisbane
08 6244 3294 – Perth
08 7078 7794 – Adelaide
08 7918 0808 – Darwin

That was a fun little project!

Air intake on my helmet after a few days of riding in bushfire smoke. 🤮

"It's 6:30. Why aren't you up yet?" as Sybil leaps up from the floor onto my stomach and I wake up winded.

After reading 2600 on and off since I was about 11 years old (I'm 35 now) I finally bought a digital subscription with the backlog included.

It has provided weeks of reading and I'm only up to 1996!

Three months ago I was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident.

I've finally gotten off crutches and am now back on the road again. Words cannot describe how good it feels.

Still a bit of a journey ahead before I'm fixed, but at least my life is returning to normal.

Onboard B19. My first time on a new Waratah Series 2. Still has that “new train smell”.

‪Sitting home alone in the dark and the light for the phone in the home office comes on.‬

‪I jumped with thoughts of that old urban legend where the murderer calls from within the house.‬

‪Turns out someone just dialed the direct number for the handset by mistake.‬

The best thing about work from home days is having Sybil the sitting next to you.

She has fancy beds but this old towel is her favourite.

You are home. Why haven’t you fed me yet? I’m just going to sit here and glare at you until you do so.

Looking forward to trying out Visual Studio 2019 shortly.

‪A little bit foggy out west but looks like it’s going to be a glorious day in Sydney!‬
