Setting up the new Shed

So, it’s been quite a quick week for me! As I go into the show holiday weekend I know it’s coming at a convenient time. You see this last week the shed has been finished, all rectification works have been completed and I’m currently just awaiting the final paperwork before paying the final invoice (as it was paid in stages). So, I started on about […]

Tanglewood Acoustic Guitar Repair

So, the other month I pulled out my Tanglewood acoustic to give it a strum. Occasionally I like to plug it into my FX pedal to see what interesting sounds I can get out of it – But, it didn’t work! After doing some basic checks on my lead and the battery voltage I then became a bit more concerned. So, I thought, well it’s […]

Coronavirus in Australia – March, 2020

Wow, what a whirlwind time of the month it has been. With the Coronavirus spreading throughout the world and all the anxious and worried people. It is hard to not have a little worry. This month and indeed the months to come will be a period that’ll likely be ingrained into our lives for the rest of our lives. At the moment in Australia, it […]

Getting into the swing of 2020

I’m three weeks into work for the new year and it’s going steady so far. I’ve been enjoying my rides into work, despite the terribly hot and stormy weather. Though, I’m very grateful for the rain Townsville has been receiving this past week. So, a few things have been happening, I’ve serviced my bicycles and have a project that’ll keep me relatively busy most of […]

Putting my Handy Man skills to work

It’s been almost a month since I last posted here! I do have a reason though! I have been quite busy with Uni. I’ve been completing a 2500 word report for Uni, which I handed in on Friday. So, that’s been a huge burden off my shoulders. Now, I just need to complete a 40-minute online test and then I’ll be finished for the semester. […]

Travelling for Work

So, this week has turned out to be a bit of an adventure. I’ve been working but have been sent off on a conference to Brisbane. So, I’m writing this post from the Brisbane Domestic Airport in Queensland, Australia. The conference I attended is one that is for school technician’s in state schools. There were quite a few take-home points, many of which, I cannot […]

Back to Uni

Well, it’s well into the year now, almost the end of March and Uni is just about in full-swing for Semester 1, 2019. This semester I was enrolled in two subjects COIT20248 (Professional Skills in Information Communication and Technology) and PPMP2008 (Initiating and Planning Projects). So, it’s now week 3, and I can say, lots has been going on, both at Uni and away from […]

Internode Website gets a facelift

So, earlier this month, I was visiting my Internet Service Provider’s website – completing my usually bi-weekly check of internet bandwidth usage and to my surprise they have finally rolled out a much needed face-lift for their website. Below is a screenshot from archive.org of when they first launched the design back in early 2008. So, they didn’t just leave the website that way until […]

NGINX on Raspberry PI

After self-hosting my websites for about two weeks now. I’ve only got one more site to move across. Now, I’m contemplating shuffling things around again so that they are all hosted on a Raspberry Pi – which results in a smaller footprint and not being stuck on the limited Synology System. Though, with the Raspberry Pi comes less computing power – which has resulted in […]

Recess is Great!

It has been a welcomed break uni recess! I’ve had one week and I just wish it could go on. Prior to my Term 3 study I had only been studying one subject as I had managed to RPL the second subject – that you would usually complete studying part-time. Right now, I’m focusing more on my work at a local school and slowing getting […]
