OSX dd Dead Slow

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 13:08:39 +0000

I’ve been writing to SD cards a bit lately while mucking around with a Raspberry Pi and a few other boards. This involves using dd to write a disk image directly onto the SD card. Whenever I do this, it is very slow. I mean really slow. I began to suspect the OSX implementation of …

F1 2012

Sat, 17 Mar 2012 04:14:05 +0000

Looking forward to another interesting F1 year. 2010 was a cracking season. Although 2011 was less interesting from a championship perspective, I was still quite interested in all the races. I think DRS and the Pirelli tyres did the job of making the events more interesting. I hope for more of the same this year. …

F1 2010

Sun, 14 Mar 2010 11:28:27 +0000

So F1 is about to start for 2010. It’s shaping up to be an interesting year. I’m hoping for most of the action to be on track this year. Maybe there will be some overtaking 🙂 Of course, there is already controversy about the McLaren aerodynamics. Personally, I’m not sure I’d like to be plugging …

Grayling and Dawkins Lecture

Sun, 07 Mar 2010 10:32:26 +0000

A few of us went along to day to the A C Grayling and Richard Dawkins’ lectures at the Sydney Opera House today. There’s something sublime about an English Professorial lecture.

CSS Pain

Tue, 07 Jul 2009 10:48:37 +0000

I decided to update my blog look and feel. I normally don’t play much in the UI space but I figured I’d have a crack at it to improve my skills. After mucking around with float:left, auto margins and friends, I can’t help but wonder what really was the problem with using tables? I’ll keep …

Catching Up

Tue, 31 Mar 2009 10:36:06 +0000

I figured it was time to start blogging again. Since I last blogged, we’ve bought a house. It turns out that owning a house requires more that just “owning”, you have to maintain it too. So I’m giving this as my excuse for not blogging much. As ever, tempus fugit …

Pimping My Build

Tue, 03 Jun 2008 12:34:34 +0000

JavaOne was a little different for me this year for two reasons. It was my first time as part of Atlassian and also the first time I have been a speaker. Atlassian’s booth was really busy and consistently so for all the pavilion sessions.  Being on a booth is hard work although you get into …

In the Shadow of the Moon

Tue, 25 Mar 2008 14:10:35 +0000

Over Easter the family and I went along to see the documentary “In the Shadow of the Moon”. I can’t remember the last time I went to the cinema to watch a documentary but it was well worth it, we took a cooler from yeti vs rtic and went on a picnic afterwards. I doubt …

Hello world!

Reading Challenge

Sun, 06 Jan 2008 11:57:55 +0000

One of the blogs I read regularly is Robert Rapier’s R-Squared Blog. I always find it an interesting read as it is a little different from the computing blogs I tend to mostly read. His blog covers an increasingly important topic and I appreciate his honest appraisals. Anyway, one of the things he resolved to …
