      Firstly ..Merry Xmas to all, and hope everyone has a great new years plan..
      so far..we don't

      So...whats been happening
      Wedding Day was awesome.. all worked out.. Sunny.. not too warm...
      The Virus I thought was over on the Wedding day was simply in hiding, and came back after, BUT
      Honeymoon in Hawaii was awesome...I has a coutgh for the whole 2 weeks, and even after we got back, but the Mrs and I had a blast..

      Of course, spend the time since then and now trying to work off the food...

      Late March will see the arrival or Baby Pac... that's right... the Mrs is expecting. All Knocked Up. In The Family Way...you get the picture.

      Will be moving house in a couple of Months.. 3 doors down from the In-Laws.. which should be good for the wife with a newborn, and help only a holla away..
      getting work done on the place before we move.. New Kitchen and Bathroom, and also some decking, although onyt the bathroom and kitchen have been commissioned so far.. and can we say Spa Bath...

      Work's also moving in the new year.. The Warehouse in a couple of weeks (in theory), and the office in April... busy times ahead, as we've got new servers due about then as well...

      Anyway, sorry it's been so long since an update.. have been logging on and checking, but haven't been creatively inspired for a while..

      Peace and Out...

      So, Today is the Day..

      had a few little issues yesterday.. the Celebrants computer crashed, but i had a copy of the ceremony that I emailed back to her.

      Also, my best mans father i law passed away yesterday, so they're flying out to the US tomorrow, and will miss the wedding. A new best man has now been arranged...

      On the bright side, I seem to be over the virus I had.. well, mostly...

    • Just 3 Days

      Ok.. ity's been ages, but here's the latest update.

      Wedding is now 3 days away.. everything is organised, or, at least, everything surrounding the groom is organised.. I can't speak for my other halfs organsiation..apart from the music, which we're still finalising...

      Just finished yet another computer rollout, and have one when I get back...

      The time has just flown... Last day of work today (Tuesday), then Wedding in 3 days (Friday), and then off to Hawai on the Monday

      almost 3 weeks off work... woo hoo..

      I thought this update would be longer, but, apparently not .

      Hope alls well with everyone.

      oh, and Tim, those Sidious jounals are pretty damn funny...

    • So, Where the Bloody Hell Are You ?

      11 years ago

      ultrapac

      Or more to the point, where have I been.

      Ok.. Firstly, at work, I've been doing a Nationwide PC rollout for new PC's, which followed the small, but nationwide, Warehouse Printer Rollout. Easy you'd think, except I no longer have a Helpdesk Guy as an assitant, which mean the Network Admin (me) has had to do the lot, as well as his normal duties.

      Essentially, for the better part of 2 months, I'd go in an hour early and leave and hour late.

      The Fiance has now moved in, and we have less then 4 months till the wedding. Just got over the bloody engagement party, which was not a barrell of fun, due to the following
      a) didn't originally want want, but She did, so I said Ok
      b) her family wanted to host it, whereas I wanted just to have dinner at a restaraunt...She seemed to want them to host it, so I said Ok..
      *That's ok so far...well barable.....
      c) every one of my suggestions (and there was a few) was ignored by those planning it
      d) Her family thought I wasn't helping enough. * Now, the simple truth is this, when you're every suggestion for YOUR engagement party is ignored, then said people are seriously lucky I helped at all.
      e) I wasn't consulted, just told to do things. Don't know about you guys, but I don't take orders from people who less organised then myself, and, to be totally honest, not as intelligent, very well. In fact, By the night before the party, I was just about ready to call the whole thng off. Not just the party.

      If someone from her family had said anything, I was about ready to say bugger it, and let them know just what I thought. And that's never vey good. I tend to be very articulate, and even more sarcastic then normal. Plus, I was at a "I want to break something physically stage"

      Then of course, they left a fairly large level of cleanup for yours truely.

      I followed up that weekend with a No Parent weekend, which was the most enjoyment I'd had in about a month, if not more. It's not that I don't like her family. I do. I just don't see everything the way they do, such as Me having some input at my own engagement party. Plus, it probably cost me personally about $500, which, with a mortgage, and a wedding and honeymoon to pay for, I couldn't really afford.

      Ok.. rant over...probably

      I've since explained my viewpoint to Her, and everything's now better, and I don't get too mad when thinking about it anymore, but I have said that there's only two people I'm listening to regarding the Wedding arrangements. Her, and Me. I said that quite forcefully.

      I've logged on most days, but haven't had time to update the Journal.

      Shoutout time.
      Tim, hope you'r feeling better

      Fred, hope The Mrs and the bubs are doing well.

      Hi to everyone else....

      Ok, It's been a bloody long while since I did a journal, although I've read plenty of others .

      Been busy, involved, and lacking creative vision...or something.

      So...to catch up.
      I moved... New place is nice.. I just love the feeling of being in Debt for 30 years...

      Settled in fine... almost everything set up..

      As of 2 weeks.. I'm now engaged.
      She should be moving in in 2-3 weeks....
      Have been ring shopping.. It is getting made... Will pretty much take all of my April Bonus..... which is painfull, but she really loves it, so...what's a man to do.

      The fiance got a new car.. Suzuki Swift - Black with S pack.. Nice to drive, and takes half the fuel that the Tiburon takes.
      Wedding itself should be September.. no idea how to afford it yet....

      On a work front, I've got a PC rollout. 50 odd machines. I've done the English Images for the desktops and Laptops.
      Will take me about a week to do the Japanese Images...I don't speak or read japanese... you can see the problem.

      last time I had a rollout, I had a Helpdesk guy to take all the calls. I no longer have an offsider, so I've got all my normal duties as Network Admin, + the rolllout stuff.... Also just send out new Kyocera printers nationwide to our warehouses, so I need to dispose of the older ones.. Same with the PC's and Laptops when we get those back..

      In short, work's busy..but Life's kinda fun...

      Hope you all are well.

      Been a while since I've done a journal, although I've read lots of others..

      Had the time to browse the site, but not the mental capacity to articulate my feelings.
      Until Now..
      I move in a bit over 3 weeks., after Property Settlement. My Life Is in Boxes At The Moment

      I got nowhere on my holiday, as I was doing housing loan papers and such

      I got talked into playing a 4th day of comp basketball...yes...I'm crazy

      After 3 and a half years apart, I'm now back with the Girl. This is a good thing. I'm still in shock..not sure how I managed it, or how I convinced her we are right for each other...and such like.

      Still waiting for the sky to cave in..

      Damn Tim. that's a serioulsy large basement area....It's like a whole 'nother house dude..

      I believe it is 1,300 sq ft of finished space. It's slightly smaller than the first floor (main living area). When you add it to the existing house area...it brings the total to 5,000 sq ft. The first placed we lived was a condo which was 1,875 sq ft.

      What's an Airport Express ?

      AirPort Express and iTunes bring your music on your Mac or PC into your living room  or wherever in your home you have stereo or powered speakers. All you have to do is connect your sound system to the audio port on the AirPort Express Base Station using an audio cable (included in the optional AirPort Express Stereo Connection Kit) and AirTunes lets you play your iTunes music through your stereo or powered speakers  wirelessly. iTunes automatically detects the connection of your remote speakers, so you just have to select them in the popup list that appears at the bottom of the iTunes window and click play.

      OK well that was straight from the horses mouth. We just use it to stream music from our iTunes Libraries to the A/V receiver. Think of the laptop as one big remote control for playing music back. It works well. We can be outside on the deck...listening to music (outdoor speakers needed of course smiley1.gif )....and change tunes as we see fit or pause the music/adjust volume if the phne rings etc.

      I like the concept....it can act as another AP to boost signal distance....and if you wanted to attach a printer to it....you could. I just use it for music.
