This is the first post for ages, I had to do something cause toastedkiwi.com got hacked. The little shits managed to screw up the forums and the gallery, but nothing I can’t fix in a few hours.
Can’t really blame anyone except myself, and the damage wasn’t too bad. Something to be said for keeping up to date with security patches…
On the good side its forced me to do some updates to the site, and make some changes to the backend to improve security.
I feel kinda guilty looking back and seening that this is the first post I’ve made this year, but well its been kinda a chaotic year to say the least. On the good side I already fixed a few things, including pictures in posts. The picture above has no real significance other than the fact it was taken by Reed, along with a couple of hundred others. Still need to fix up the Gallery and the forums, although I might not bother with the later unless I can figure out something to do with them.
I’ve been through alot lately, but things are starting to settle down, and I can finally get my head around doing some stuff I’ve been putting off for along time now.
At the moment I’m still a bum, after leaving IBM. I’m not allowed to say why or what happened, however we both agreed it wasn’t the place for me. At the moment I’m the most relaxed I’ve been in years, sometimes you need don’t figure how much of a rat race life can be until you take a few steps back. I spent the last couple of months hanging around with the boys which has been just magic.
Other than that a whole heap has happened since my last post. I’ve been living in the Mirage for almost 8 months now, after Tara and I decided we needed a break. Theres been pro’s and con’s to it all, and there may be a change coming up soon, but I’ll let everyone know when it happens.
I haven’t been working for almost 3 months now, which has been great, but its now time to get back to reality and find another job. Hoepfully this won’t take too long…
Both Reed and Danny have grown heaps, its less than a month to go till Reed starts school. He’s got his little uniform, which he already doesn’t want to take off.
Danny has been on fire lately, its been fantastic being able to spend a couple of months with him watching him grow, its a shame all fathers don’t get to do this more often, as its been good for both him and for me. Its funny, he’s so young and yet he has taught me so much about what’s important in life, and what matters to a little boy. He alone has the ability to bring me crashing back to reality more than anything else in my life. He’s somehow more fragile than Reed, and yet he smile’s with such a glow he makes you melt.
I’ve also been without a car for nearly 4 months now, which initially I didn’t know how I’d cope. It was hard to resist buying another one, I was only an ants cock away from buying another HSV, but somehow I resisted, and somehow I haven’t missed it. Living in the CBD helps a whole heap, but the reality is it hasn’t been the end of the earth, Taxi’s aint so bad, let alone the $5k I pocketed since…
