Think this is funny? Think this is some kind of mother flipping joke? Mother flippers think everything’s a mother flipping joke.

Trailer: Java 4ever

June 26th, 2010 No comments

In genius trailer! The .NET vs Java train left the station so long ago for me. .NET’s great for somethings, for everything else, there’s Java. Probably one of the best nerdy videos for the year!

UPDATED: First video was removed 🙁

Disputing a parking fine, Melbournian style!

April 7th, 2010 2 comments

Back when I was at Uni, a close friend (who drove a Toyota Supra) and I used to attract parking inspectors like magnets (needless to say, our girlfriends were not impressed!). There was very little we could do too, some of the inspectors would “camp out” and await our batch of cars (we had a system!) as we swapped each others cars in the hopes we don’t get fined, then BAM! fined. Anyway, those days are long gone. Most of the areas we parked are now permit zoned but these days, inspectors seem to be far more aggressive with fines with very little leniency.

Here’s a letter sent to the City of Melbourne disputing a fine, thought this was hilarious – and encouraging.

Anyway, that was win for you and me kiddo. For the helpless people that need hope and encouragement, we may not win the war, but we’ve won the battle.

Add that to the collection of Aussie funnies! I wonder if there’s a “Parking Inspectors” forum like the OzLiberty forums, they all get together and marvel at each others fines – time to troll!

When captcha’s know too much….

January 29th, 2010 No comments

I was innocently attempting to post a comment on an article in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Then after a few refreshes, it decided to take it to the next level.

It was not to be however, even after several attempts the CAPTCHA failed to validate! A good way to end the week!

Seek ad for an IT Developer for BorderExpress

After last year’s search for Credit Superhero on Seek, I bring you, the IT Developer for Border-Express with….

The original ad has been scaled back a bit as I doubt the right candidate could be found in time. Full credit to TheRegister.

HP Computers are racist.

Gold.

Soon as my blackness enters the frame…. I’m sneaking in….. Black desi gets in there… Uh no, no face recognition buddy. HP Computers are racist.

Read the HP response to this video. Clearly a failure in the QA department!

xkcd: Nachos, the end of an era, Geocities closes.

October 26th, 2009 No comments

Well a special xkcd comic today to the theme of Geocities, the free website hosting company almost any nerd cool guy/gal made their mark – including yours truly somewhere down SiliconValley (97/98). Around that time, most of the javascript was thanks to The Javascript Planet, the CGI-Scripts were mostly from Matt Wright‘s ScriptArchive and most webmasters had a Fido7 script somewhere. After musing with GeoCities for a year or so I moved over and did what anyother kid would do, made a games site on FreeServers called GamesGalore. Essentially I reviewed demos I got from the PCGamer magazine at the time ($15 a pop!). Made no money but it was all good fun.

The days of marquees, ‘optimised for Netscape or IE’ camps, frames (GamesGalore had it!) and lots of flashing animated gifs, because that was where it was at.

No point pasting the comic here, check out xkcd and enjoy the memories.

I swear that’s the only time you’ll ever see a marquee or a blinking text on this site!
