Maintain Your Feet!

As a nail technician, I come across many questionable looking feet. I’m not sure if some people just don’t know that they have to wash their feet, or if there are serious underlying issues at hand. Now, I’m not talking about ugly feet. I see feet every single day and acknowledge that they’re all relatively …

Waterfall of Whimsy

Want to hear about my dream house? It’s basically a giant pond, adapted to my personal preferences of flora and fauna, with a series of little huts around it for different purposes – sleeping, cooking, hanging out, whittling and so on. The pond is heated by an underground thermal spring, and cleaned by… I dunno, …

Thwarted Tinkerer

When did everyday objects become so complicated? When I was a lad, you could cobble together a DIY solution for pretty much any problem you could think of, provided it was a practical one. Nowadays, it seems like you need a degree in engineering to fix any given gizmo, which really takes the power out …

If you asked me at any other time, I’d say it’s definitely worth …

Guiding Principle

If there’s one guiding principle that shapes my approach to life, it’s design thinking. That might sound strange coming from the managing director of a company known for creating commercial accounting software. But I actually think that people who are familiar with our product, the tech industry and contemporary business in general wouldn’t find it …

No Looking Back

I’ve never actually been outside my home suburb, so I’m not sure how far is ‘far’. Like…is Bendigo ‘far’? I’ve heard the name mentioned a couple of times, sort of in the same way that you might talk about other far-off places like Timbuktu, or Toronto. I mean, the way everyone talks about it, Bendigo …

The Transformer Forest

Judging by the fact that none of the electricians I’ve seen are wearing that weird rubber suit I saw on that TV Show ‘Lizards Lair’, I’m guessing the whole idea fell through. I wonder how often that happens? The Lizards pledge a load of money to some wacky invention, they give their camera interviews at …
