GoQuad races.

Posted on June 2nd, 2008 in Events,work by Andy

Work had a social on Saturday which mainly consisted of races around the office block on GoQuads – small gocarts. We all had a great time as can be seen in the videos on youtube and the photos on flickr of the qoquad races. In this clip Cesar didn’t stop in time….

And for a special treat for my work colleagues (and their roommates), watch Matt and Linda

My final (for now) Microsoft exam passed!

Posted on May 30th, 2008 in OurNews,work by Andy

I took my final (of 7) Microsoft exam this afternoon. It’s a lot different and a lot harder than the other tests due to the amount of information that you need to digest and analyze (and in some cases assume).  The good news is that I have now obtained the next level in Microsoft accreditations – I am now a Microsoft Certified System Engineer, a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator, Small Business Specialist and a Certified Professional!  This month has been very busy trying to study most nights for these tests – this was my third exam this month and so for the next week or so I’m not going to be doing any overtimefor work  – I’m looking forward to being able to relax, watch some films and play rockband. Hopefully I’ll also be able to post some more stuff to the blogs – including some photos of the laminate flooring that I installed last weekend.

How do they know?

Get Fuzzy cartoon last Saturday
Sure enough, on Saturday I was working on 3 client projects trying to finish up various activities. The only difference in this picture was that I was working just before 8am. The full cartoon for this day can be found www.comics.com//comics/getfuzzy/archive/getfuzzy-20080503…

Bad traffic

Posted on March 7th, 2008 in work by Andy

I had to go to a customer (twice) today and the second time the weather was pretty bad. What took me 20 minutes this morning took over 1hour and 20 minutes this afternoon to get back to the office. The GoogleMaps picture shows what the traffic is like now. Scarily enough, even with the fact that it was not possible to see the road surface, undertaking me on the approach to a roundabout, cutting me off and generally tanking on the roads is ok if you just HAVE to get your haircut.  Personally I hope the snow and rain freezes her new haircut and makes a right mess of it when she comes out of the salon and ruins the $200 haircut.

Bad Traffic anyone?

My first ski session.

Posted on January 4th, 2008 in photos,work by Andy

A bunch of us from work are going skiing tonight – it starts at 10pm and finishes at 3am (and then we have a 45 min drive home). I’m really looking forward to it as I’ve never been skiing before. Always wanted to go but it probably wouldn’t have been as much fun on my own as with a group of friends from work. I’ll take the camera but won’t be taking pictures whilst on the skis though. Therefore my picaday picture will be late today, but it should be a unique one for me!
