Lesson Learned: Don’t Make Eye-Contact!

Yesterday I attended the annual Boxing Day conference hosting by Cambridge OCRC. Despite the fact that it wasn’t on the 26th this year it was still profitable and fun. Usually we take a quick tour of the mall during the time allotted for dinner, which we did again this year. As we were briskly marching ...

Merry Christmas!

Convert OpenOffice.org Writer Rich Text to BB Code

I’m part of a little writing group forum. It’s been a good experience to push myself to put down my ideas and also receive valuable feedback from other (more skilled) writers. I have so many ideas but I don’t like to start writing something unless I’m committeed to getting it done, so this group has been a ...

StarCraft II Beta Installation

On the morning of the 19th I was checking my email on my Touch Pro and saw I received an email from “SC2betaUS”. ?! I’d signed up for the beta of StarCraft II but had basically given up hope (my system didn’t meet the specs anyway). But sure enough, it was a bona fide invite ...

Ard Throws It Down on Home Turf

Quite apparently I’ve not been doing anything on my website lately. When I do feel like addressing cyberspace I tend to just spit out a blurb on Facebook or Twitter. Anywho… Since the fateful disappearance of our cat Buzz, years back, our cats have a curfew. No more all-night partying. Telum has mostly grown out ...

Change of Hosting

I’m moving both my domain name, kryptech.name, and web hosting to Cirrus Logic. Thus there may be some downtime here until everything is fully moved over. [update - d23]OK, so the domain name transfer finally went through and the DNS is pointing to Cirrus. I’m uploading images now but I probably won’t have time to ...

Merry Christmas!

I’m on Twitter

As of August 22, 2009 I’ve been on Twitter. You can find me at http://twitter.com/kryptech. I originally signed up just to see what Twitter was about. I didn’t intend to post regularly. In the past month or so I’ve been posting Tweets more frequently, focusing more on technology rather than personal news. I figure Twitter ...

Dollar for a Drink Challenge

I’m currently enjoying my first coffee in a week. This is for a different reason then my previous “coffee break”. Our church’s young people group is studying Do Hard Things and after the last lesson Kate challenged us to drink only water (for beverage – we could still eat!) for a week. Then for the ...

Lest We Forget

This morning I attended the Remembrance Day service in Newcastle. I heard there has been a greater turn-out this year in the GTA, perhaps due to grim reminders we’ve been receiving all too often of the death of another soldier in Afghanistan. So our memories turn to recent events in addition to those from many ...
