Daughters

Daughters are too gorgeous by far. I need either a cage to keep her in, or a shotgun to keep them out. Nothing else will do.



Another recent trip to the foreshore; some of the local fishermen trying to put a dent in the blowfish population:



And that's why I love living in the west: sunsets over the ocean are something I never want...

(Finally) Creating a website

Posted 12th October 2009 at 11:37 PM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

I have finally found time to start building something at ashlann.com, a domain I purchased months ago.

I have installed a forum module, but again, the interface is... frustrating.

Anyway, add it to your favourites...

My little angel, Jasmine

The New Paperweight - it's great!

PC woes. Oh, we've all been there, I know. I'm just so utterly fed up with it!

A month or so back, I put in a new GPU & PSU (that's a gizmit and a hoodad for those of you not fluent with the lingo) - the system booted fine, but would not reboot without a BIOS flash.

Despite all advice & best wishes from the TOG think-tank, web searches, tips from Deep Blue and Bill Gates Himself, that issue still remains. The BIOS utterly vanishes the minute it achieves a successful...

Did I hear it chime Beer o'clock?

Oh yes, I truly think I did!

Episodes 6, 7 and 8 have now all been mastered, re-mastered and uploaded ready for your aural entertainment. That brings us right up to date, and it means I might actually fit in some serious gaming tonight!

...except Redgum and Father are waiting for new forum signatures. Oooh that Redgum - why you gotta go needing change, man? Never change a winning formula! (In all honesty, I'm really excited about doing this one... i want to prove to myself...
