What a few weeks it's been! I changed job (hinted at in my last post in July) and have been on holiday - not to mention away with work as I'm now a consultant... :)

Still, something funny for you here at Clarkson island.

Also, here with Will Ferrell answering questions :)

Lastly - I had the Monaro on the rollers and she made 440hp at the flywheel. Heh.

Things change

As of the 15th August 2008, I will no longer be in the employ of Fat Face. :(

Still, I am moving on to a new company and a new role. Virtualisation Consultant. Cool eh?

More detail soon!

The holiday starts HERE!

You can see how out of touch I am with the blog because below I used [i] tags for an italic font and got nothing.. ah well, at least I remember the correct way to do it!

I'm on holiday from today. Yes, holiday. I'm off to Newquay so my new found blogging love will have to wait a week (yeah yeah, six months).

Might have some cool news on my return as well. :)

Just looking at my old library of car pics - I miss the 911/DeLorean combo. What a 2-car garage! Think I might head back that way actually - 911 first and then the DeLorean when time/space and money allow. It's an aim - so what if it takes me years? :D

It's me!

March? MARCH?

Good god man, what the hell have I been doing?!

Well I'll say that I don't really have the time to blog these days and that's pretty obvious but I reckon I might take this back to basics and start again with a new theme. I mean, I'm here now aren't I? :P

So - I'm all moved with Gemma (have been for a few months) and things are all good. Life is hectic as usual and this week kinda starts and finishes the car-show season for me (Billing and Festival of Speed). Next week I'm in Newquay and then it's business as usual!

I'll be [i]right back[/i]!

A New Year...

Hopefully this year will see more blogging; or an admittance I don't have the time and I'll kill it. Or start again. Or just redesign it and get the archives working. Or.

Anyway; it's 2008. I'll be 29 + 365 days old this year and that's probably quite something. I don't personally believe it and if I'm lucky, no one will notice.

It should be an exciting year all round though. A house move for me - so far only taking four lousy months. The Camaro should appear in production form (the prototype is looking damned close to the concept) and now the Calibra is gone, a year of shows with either the Monaro - or nothing at all (and me just spectating). Who knows. Could be interesting.

Is HD DVD dead? Hmm - not sure myself. That's not because I just got a player either. I think it's still very early on and the real adoption hasn't happened - but I will admit that it's down to distribution and without the big players, it's hard to see how it'll fare.

Probably a good movie year as well, what with Cloverfield, Indy 4 and a raft of other big films on the way. Better than 2007? Well, what was your favourite movie last year? I can hardly remember...

If you've not seen JC's new DVD - borrow it. It's worth it just to see some rather expensive metal being thrown around. I particularly liked the little Gallardo. :P

See ya.
