Catching up on the last few months
Aug 25, 2012

A lot has been happening. So much, in fact, that I haven’t found the time (and energy) to document it — our “long way home” has taken an unexpected turn with a new job and life in Canberra.

So, we’re well overdue an update. A lot has happened in the last couple of months, actually — let me explain and you might understand why I haven’t found time to post!

A good day
Apr 28, 2012

Twas a good day today — I had a nice long sleep-in (thanks honey), had a visit from Ken and Mary, got to Bunnings for sample paint-pots, heard from a potential employer and had just enough fuel and sunlight to rough-mow the lawns.

Powers out, time for painting
May 13, 2011

Circa 3pm We’ve just had a heavy downpour of rain and, likely related, our power has gone out. No electricity means no Internet, which means no work — good time to do some painting (while there is still enough daylight) and write a blog-post now I’ve got my blog client working again.

Cleared for landing
May 23, 2005

I have my entry clearance!! This is a really, really good thing, and has been a point of stress for both Dee and I, as if I didn’t get my VISA then I wouldn’t be allowed on the aeroplane without a return ticket.

Weekende
Feb 5, 2005

(There is nothing like a cup of tea and some Audioslave to get you through the working weekend.) Friday night started well, with drinks at the Trader Bar. It was intended to be the February Opensource Meetup, but was far too noisy to have any real conversation (I will try harder next month to find an appropriate venue, I think).

Catchup
Jan 19, 2005

I’ve been running to catch up ever since we got back from Christmas/NY holidays. It’s just been completely overwhelming — from two weeks of lazing around the campfire to two weeks of daily deadlines and impatient clients.

Google loves me! Bucky is the best!
Jan 12, 2005

I just found, by accident, that I’m the second highest Google search for “chronofiles”. (The Buckminster Fuller Institute is first, by the way.) sniff I’m so proud. Of course, a Google search for “chronofile”, singular, will not feature the glennji chronofiles at all.

The year to come
Dec 23, 2004

This will be my last post this year – Dee and I are going camping in South Australia for the next two weeks, and it’s unlikely there will be mobile phone coverage, let alone wifi internet access.
