Samuel’s Blog Year In Review: July 2005

The week that spanned across the months of June and July saw me doing work experience at the Capital Radio Network (2CC/2CA), which saw this website grind to a halt. Upon my return I mentioned that I hadn’t vanished, and did not have a Musician(s) Of The Week award.

I was still very annoyed with the stupid things that people do, and brought some rather unusual rubbish bin activity to your attention.

I soon realised that I had missed the Musician(s) Of The Week award, and gave it to The Beatles, I also offered my condolences to those affected by the London bombings.

I did some calculations involving bus tickets, and then brought you some information about Linux.Conf.Au 2006.

This was followed by the good news that John Laws would be returning to work, after recovering from a back operation, on July 27, a date which was later ammended to July 25, two weeks before his 70th birthday (more on that tomorrow).

My shipment of Ubuntu Linux CDs arrived.

I started the Samuel’s Artwork category by showing you a picture I had shown you before, this lead to me starting the Samuel In Dolgnwot series. I also announced the start of the Blog View Stats, and even started tracking Schnappi’s progress on the ARIA charts.

Somebody called “Thought & Humor” left a very long piece of comment spam, which was odd and interesting. I then proceeded to talk about a few reasons why I like Mozilla Firefox and explained the process of making patchwork art.

I explained in great detail why I think the Ginninderra Super School is a huge mistake.

The first ever online Samuel Salute was awarded to Bob Carr after his retirement, and I suggested that John Laws should be the next New South Wales premier, Carl Scully promptly dropped out of the race, but alas, Morris Iemma became the premier.

I then found a way to run Windows Update without Internet Explorer and told you about the announcement of a leap second.

The month ended with Visual Basic being described as silly string, and Schnappi becoming Casanova.

Tomorrow morning we will be looking back on August 2005.
