Oh look: I can post from anywhere. Whee.

I have to say it’s interesting writing a post from my Blackberry to add to my blog. Particularly since the subway ride from Queens to Wall Street can take about 45 minutes and the majority of the ride is above ground. It does highlight how having this is both a useful tool as well as […]


Ok. So I figured out how to import eveything although the formatting leaves a little to be desired. We’ll see how things go from here on in. Should be interesting to say the least.


Well.. I’m going to try to recover the files from the old version of the website. I’m presently in the process of migrating from my old blogging software, Serendipity, to the new one, WordPress. I figure with WordPress I’ll get more options, plug-ins and templates to muck about in. I wish there was an easier […]


So on a whim I decided to swallow my pride and try a donations button. I’m hoping that perhaps this might raise a bit of money to either pay off debt or fund top surgery. I figured even if it was a little, it’d be a little more than I had before. In some ways […]

Saying goodbye to Mittens

I can’t believe I’m doing this but today I’m booking an appointment to say goodbye to my namesake, Mittens (the appointment is this Tuesday). After 15 years of life, she developed cancer of the mouth. It’s gotten so bad recently that she’s not eating, not grooming and blood is coming out of her mouth. This […]

More updating

Well, I have finally moved to the US. It is a challenging process, particularly given the current climate of things and in some ways understandable. But at the same time I wonder if the over-indulgence of security by the US is more detrimental than helpful. Because of the extreme strictness that the US CIS agents […]

The Update finally..

Well this update has been a long time in coming. Fair warning, it's probably more personal than some might like. You've been warned.<br /> <br /> A lot of things have changed so perhaps it's finally time to do some explaining. To do this, I'll use a timeline:<br /> <br /> October 2005: I get […]

An update of sorts

Hrmm.. it has been a while since I've updated this page. I will probably be doing some updates soon as my life has changed considerably in the last 6 months, let alone the last year and a half. I've have gone in a different direction in regards to my own personal endeavours, particularly in regards […]

Secure Desktops = Happy Networks

Last month I talked about some basic concepts that seem to be falling by the wayside, specifically <a href=http://www.enterpriseitplanet.com/security/features/article.php/3633461>performing backups and having a test environment</a> to ensure that updates, patches and other roll-outs are sufficiently vetted. This month I&#146;d like to discuss two other basic concepts that seem to have fallen by the wayside of […]

Oh. .couple of updates

I've decided to revert back to allowing comments again. We'll see how that goes. And I think I found a doctor. A new practise is opening down on my street and I'll be going for an "interview" to see if they will take me on as a patient. Interesting process to say the least. <img […]
