Samuel’s Coffee-Cup-O-Meter Easter Saturday

Samuel’s Blog Year In Review: February 2006

April 15th, 2006 at 07:00am

February started off with me enrolling at CIT, which turned out to be a slightly more frustrating experience than expected. The next day I stumbled across some underground cabling work, which would be the start of a long series of posts about it.

I had a dream involving vicious cats

I explained my reasons for leaving a website called The RiotACT, and continued documenting the underground cabling work.

Somebody tried to gain access to my Gmail account.

I then announced my schedule for my first day at CIT, which doubled as the day of 2CC’s outside broadcast from the grand opening of the new Bunnings store in Belconnen.

Nattie enjoyed a bone (she does it quite often, but it is hard to photograph).

The underground cabling continued, and I got a video of a horizontal directional drilling machine in action.

I had a dream about a lion, a professor and John Howard.

Then it was CIT/2CC/Bunnings day, it started off with my trip to CIT for my first class, had a cafe review in the middle, and concluded with my trip to Bunnings Belconnen, where 2CC were holding an outside broadcast as part of Bunnings’ grand opening celebrations.

I made my views on the “Bali Nine” issue perfectly clear.

The website was temporarily plagued with popups from a third party service provider.

The Canberra Capitals won the Womens National Basketball League.

John Kerr celebrated his 64th birthday, whilst network stations suffered satellite induced problems, I rang John to wish him a happy birthday and had a special Musicians Of The Week award in his honour.

I released Samuel’s Persiflage #3.

Bigpond blocked Gmail temporarily. This was acaused by their use of seriously flawed spam filtering techniques.

I noticed that standards had dropped at Campbell High School since my time their.

I had an interesting conversation with a correspondent.

Internet Explorer’s insistence on not following standards caused me all sorts of headaches in getting rid of those popups.

The select group of Summernats enthusiasts who insisted on ridiculing my opinion of Summernats had a few mildy legible words to say.

I proposed some changes for the better in the laws behind drivers licences.

I thought about the possibility of 2CC launching some podcasts.

I discovered the reason for the underground cabling.

And a bus fare scammer proved beyond all reasonable doubt that he is a scammer.

That’s February, March is up tomorrow morning, and then we will have the 1st birthday of Samuel’s Blog!
