August started off with me outlining some of the reasons why I don’t like Internet Explorer, and celebrating the Horse’s Birthday (thanks to John Kerr’s show for informing me of this interesting event).
The first Blog View Stats post appeared, but was just a copy of the Webstat stats, with no analysis.
It was around this time that I started to become annoyed with the services of Blogger.com, and contemplated moving to WordPress.
I also rang George Gibson for the first and only time, attempted to solve his brain teaser puzzle, and amused him (for the record, the answer was that the swimmer was naked).
I had some fun with some scammers on the phone, who insisted that they wouldn’t stand on me…but still wanted my credit card number.
Windows Media Player asked me the same question ten times in a row.
Schnappi reached sixth on the ARIA charts.
Tree Of Life wanted to hire an acting assistant manager and experts contemplated releasing tigers and elephants throughout the US.
I spent a fair bit of time fixing up the new site and the old posts, something I’m still slowly doing.
I found out that the video from my Linux.Conf.Au seminar would not be able to go ahead due to further audio problems.
Somebody decided to put some shopping baskets on street lamps.
I spent a bit too much time thinking about the answer to the previously mentioned brain teaser question.
Statistics on the new site went haywire, informing me that 295% of people added the site to favourites/bookmarks.
After nearly eight months, PC User sent me my prize for writing the letter of the month, supermarkets employed some very odd and covert methods of checking competitor prices and I stapled myself.
Tomorrow morning we will look back on September.
