Well, I guess I'm still alive - but I've largely abandoned LiveJournal. Not many of my friends and/or aquaintances are left on here, and ever since an update a few months ago, looking at my friends page on my iPad seems to cause it to crash out... and since the majority of my browsing is now done on the iPad, that's a problem.
I still check here, from time to time, but... yeah.So have a video of a prank played on my boss at the office!

|Still Alive. Still doing science and I am, Still Alive...
poked me, and I realised it's been over 2 weeks since my last post.
Guess it's just been a bit of a weird time:
The company that wanted to get away with only giving me 2 weeks notice, instead of 4, now wants to keep me until the beginning of the new year. I've been doing work for them while some of the other guys have been on holidays and all.
But the business is all set up, save for the doing - I have the ABN, and the business name. The business account has been set up with checkbook (does anyone use those still?) and Merchant facilities (I can accept EFTPOS through the iPhone)
The logo is being worked on at the moment by crimsonfang
and then I can get business cards, car signage, and uniforms printed.
In other news, it was 41C here today - ouch!

Congratulations Telstra - you've got a video in the YouTube "Most Popular" section... somehow... considering it only has 1083 views in a month.... and the video next to it has had 29.8 million views in 4 days....
Think they paid for the ranking? (Think it's been very effective?)

Well, sounds like I have 6 weeks left - 4 weeks from the notice they have to give me, and 2 for the weeks of vacation I have left. Plus the unpaid wages they still owe, I suppose.
So, I'm thinking of the name "T-Bone Technology" - Steak service at burger prices. Too cliche?
A call-out computer troubleshooting company. Probably start at $50/hr (maybe $70 a/h?)
What sort of point-of-difference should I consider?
After-hours service (7pm)
After-hours service (9pm)
After-hours service (Weekends)
Other (please specify)
How do people even advertise these things these days?
Leaflets in local stores
Other (please specify)
Feel free to suggest a name (Optional)

Well, as those of you who follow me on da Twitters will know, I found out yesterday, that I've been made redundant. We're still hashing out the details of leave payment, back pay, etc. - but I'll probably only get about 3-4 weeks worth of money from it.
Be nice to know that sort of thing BEFORE going on vacation, so I'd know not to spend so much... right?
ANYways - I figure I have a decision to make now. I can either try to find another job, in an IT jobs market that is currently flooded..... or...... I could try making my own business. *nervous gulp*
So, what say ye all?
Wage-slave or Sole-Proprietor?
I'll leave the poll up for 24 hours, I think. Give me a chance to hash some ideas out.

@Uberfacts: The worlds shortest horror story is only two sentences long - "The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door."
My response (across multiple tweets): "Sir" said I, "Or madam, truly your forgiveness I implore. But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping. And so faintly you came rapping, tapping on my chamber door. That I scarce was sure I heard you" - here I opened wide the door: Darkness there, and nothing more.

Goodbye environment and economic growth, it was nice knowing you. Was also nice having the prospect of being able to marry my bear, and get broadband exceeding 1.5mbps next year. I guess 2019 isn't too long to wait for an upgrade to 25mbps. And I hear marriage isn't all that great anyway.

You play NetHack, right? Is WazHack another fork/port of it? Seems like it o me, but I'm really not that familiar with the original.

So - still haven't been able to try those chilli fries from the mall - the chili dispenser is apparently broken, and it's been over a week now :P
In other news, I'm kinda digging the "recimg /CreateImage" command in Windows 8 - but damn, if it doesn't take half an eternity -_-

Kwinana Hub officially has a Poutine place.
That also does chip butties, and chili fries.
Their butties are slightly sub-par, and need a touch of mayo. But think I'll give the fries with nacho cheese, chili con carne, and sour cream, tomorrow.

If any of you tech-fiends can let me know why the initial install of SBS2011 for a new domain would fail DCPROMO due to some sort of certificate problem, it'll make things go much smoother for me on my early start tomorrow... A day that I was originally supposed to have OFF.
