First Nerdfighter encounter walking the streets of Perth!

So the other night I was having dinner in Northbridge with a couple friends. I wore my Pizza John shirt that day like I do most days I go out into public hoping to maybe run into another Nerdfighter.

I’m walking along James St and a small group of people had gathered that we were walking by, and as we walked by they were joined by a couple more people. One of those people noticed my shirt, “AH PIZZA JOHN!”

I was still walking along and my friends had no idea what was going on, but as I was walking I turned around and did the Nerdfighter handsign which was met with “YEAH! NERDFIGHTERS!” I probably made her night.

My friends must think I’m part of a cult. :P

Fun high school story time!

First of all, Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for supporting me and reading my blog.
Hope 2015 is awesome for you!

Anyway the story:
So in high school, they introduced a strict blacklisting policy on the school internet. This made it annoying even for legitimate uses like researching for a project.

Anyway, people started getting around it by using proxy sites but eventually the school cracked down on these too.

Being the computer geek that I am, I actually hosted my own – on my own website. I had used this freely for a while but people caught on. I had told a couple people about it.. but I must’ve told too many people. Or I guess the wrong people. Which was stupid of me in hindsight.

Eventually the IT guy at school found out and I got in a bit of trouble. I think he even went to the trouble of finding out who was hosting my website and whatever. Don’t remember the details clearly but I do remember getting some kind of email about it.

Ah, those were the days. When I knew more about computers than the computer teachers themselves.

Bonus story!
In media class, there was a computer with a faulty disc drive. The teacher told me he was waiting for it to be repaired as the called someone in or whatever. I decided to check it out for myself. I opened it up and saw the belt had come off. So I got a pacer and my small metal ruler and put it back on the gears. CD drive fixed.
TL;DR: I fixed a CD drive with a pencil and ruler in five minutes.

HOLY CRAP. That was a damn good movie.
If you thought Winter Soldier was good, this was just as – and definitely better than The Avengers.

Maaaaaaan. Rocket was awesome. Groot was awesome (especially loved his facial expressions). The music was awesome. The movie was extremely funny. AND THAT POST CREDITS SCENE.

Go watch this movie yo.

One year since PAX and LFC

Exactly one year ago today, I saw my beloved Liverpool FC in action at the MCG.

Melbourne was a sea of red leading up to the match. The atmosphere in the city was amazing. The stadium was amazing. The weather on the day was perfect.

Singing You’ll Never Walk Alone with over 95,000 other reds was something very special. It could only have done better at Anfield.

And we won!


Also a year ago, was PAX. Man I am so excited to go to PAX again this year! aaahhhhh

First of all, I have new videos since I last blogged! You can check them out over at my YouTube channel.

And speaking of, rather conveniently (you could say it was planned), I’m planning on starting a weekly or biweekly vlog on my channel. Since I have Saturdays freed up now (decided to reduce my hours at my old work – more on that later), I can work on making more video content. My first will probably be a 2013 year in review, something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time but never got around to it!

Anyway in other news.. I started a new job at Bluewaters Power and since I’m doing that on weekdays, I now have my weekends free! Here is me at the power station:

That’s all for now, I think.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

I got to see an advance screening today and..

It was awesome!

I think the first was probably a bit better, but this was still a good sequel! The film was made of epic and awesome; and of course the animation was top notch. I’m glad they brought back John Powell to score the film as well.

Can’t wait for the third movie!

(Hiccup and Astrid is my OTP, obvs).
