#30DaysOfGeek Day 21: Favouritest and worst things about working in IT

So my favouritest and worst things about working in IT?

Worst: Righteous hippies. There are lots of them in IT. And people who should know about the benefits of accessibility and standards and ignore them!

Favouritest: Hot geeky guys ;) Especially Russell!

Posted from WordPress iPhone app. Who knows how this is looking to you ;)

#30DaysOfGeek Day 20: Where do you stand on Internet Censorship?

I have no idea.  I’m not quite sure what you mean by this.  I think pron should be free for all and people should be able to say whatever the hell they want to.  Is this what you what the question means?  Or are we going to get into a conversation about Creative Commons?

I think giant firewalls blocking traffic to people are pointless, controlling and bullshit.  Then again, when you look at what happens offline – iruno.  I think what’s happened in Egypt was awesome, people fighting for their right to speak and making great use of social media.  They couldn’t shut them down!  :)

Australia needs to calm the fuck down and let people play Mortal Kombat.

#30DaysOfGeek Day 19: Most hated computing environment.

Most hated computing environment?

My house.  Or anywhere where there is no sun.  I prefer to sit outside in the sun with my laptop.  But then I have problems with screen glare.  Hmmm…

P.S Windows is the bestest ever.  But if you want to play REAL games, you need to get into DOS.

DOSBox FTW.  Love you Harekiet. <3

#30DaysOfGeek Day 18: Most cringe-worthy geek moment


Nothing is more cringe-worthy than doing a “/me” on IRC and just typing “me”…  d’oh! ;)

Too short?

How about ummm, losing at games?  Or when Warcraft 3 came out and it took us about 5 months to ever beat the damn AI player when playing co-op?  And even then I can honestly say that we only beat it about 4 times ever.

I’m really at a loss for words on this one.  It takes a lot to make me cringe.  I tend to just piss myself laughing ;)

#30DaysOfGeek Day 17: Post a useful HOWTO…

Post a useful HOWTO to solve a challenge you’ve come across recently.

A useful one? Umm. I have NO idea. Maybe there’s a great one here on this blog already I can just link to? ;)

I found this one useful: iTunes doing my head in. But now the problem is happening again, dangit ;) I think it’s because of my LastXP, not because of my iTunes!

I have nothing else to help you, sorry. Post any questions about cooking and I’ll help.

#30DaysOfGeek Day 16: First computer owned, and favourite computer

First computer you’ve ever owned & your favourite ever. Hmm…

I think we had a 286 when I was err, 12? That was pretty cool. I remember getting Eye of Horus for it. Great game ;)

Then we got up to a 486, which was kinda cool, and then a P2. I think I still have a P3 floating around in my garage somewhere. It was being used as a dedicated fserve machine ;)

My most favourite computer? Probably that one. It was pretty epic, it had a shitload of RAM for its time, MBs of the stuff!

#30DaysOfGeek Day 15: Earliest geek experience

Day 15 of #30DaysOfGeek… I’m actually posting this quite a bit later than the real day 15, mainly because I didn’t hit publish. Woops. o_O

So, my earliest geek experience? I have NO idea!

I remember when I was about 4 someone came to our house with a C64 or something and they had pacman! I remember the actual game. Which is quite random as I don’t remember us even having a TV.

Nope, I don’t remember actually having a turn. :(
