Why IBM will never rule the world…

Lotus Notes. IBM’s be all and end all of email applications. Heaps of features, useability, it’s own dictionary and interface friendly (so they say). Yet when you include the term “Lotus Notes” in an email….created in Lotus Notes, and then you make the horrible mistake of pressing alt+e/ k (spell check) the first thing that comes up is….


The word Lotus does not exist in Lotus Notes Dictionary.


And the winner is…..Camp Quality!!!

Yesterday morning, I jumped into my car to go to work, backed out the driveway, and turned on the radio. And there were all these women ringing the radio station, claiming single-ness, and a lack of Valentines Day festivities.

A local Real Estate agent had arranged a Valentines Day Charity Ball, to be held Valentines Evening at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra, and one of the sponsors of the event, The Home Loan Centre, had purchased an entire table (10 seats @ $150 each) to be “won” by single people calling the radio station.

 Hence all the women on the radio yesterday morning.

I vaguely listened, and thought “Why aren’t any men calling up too?”

Followed closely by “Why aren’t I calling up too?”

 So I did.

The end result: I attended the formal Richard Luton Properties Camp Quality Charity Ball at the Hyatt Hotel, in nearby Canberra. And I was the designated “date” of nine (I thought it was fifteen, but I’m not complaining) women for this event.

 And, you guessed it (pun definitely intended), I had a ball….

WTF is Gruntski up to?

Kids and horses

When my kids found out I was riding horses, they (Natasza in particular) kept asking me if they could go for a ride as well. Luckily, the owners of the horse I ride are really nice people, and they agreed that my children could come and have a ride on “Dooba”, with the proviso that I didn’t sue their asses off if there were any injuries… No injuries, but lots of smiling, happy faces. It’s just a bit of a pity Anthony hardly saw anything of his ride-we didn’t have a helmet small enough for him.
