Tamasys' Blog

Well, hardly an ode. Just a rant.

A couple of days ago, Ozzyfrog posted about people who buy houses near airports and then complain about the noise, but this hatred extends further for me – to anyone who follows a similar thought pattern. Near my house, people are starting to build these massive monstrosities, which they call “houses”, without a thought for the people living around them. Would they have bought a house in that street if it had been full of giant, blocky, concrete, generally ugly buildings? No. So why should they turn it into that? Grr.

Now, I shall leave them to their large houses and SUV’s, and move onto something else: Christmas!

I got lots of things :D, mostly little things. I got the usual Christmassy silly things, like chocolate, various little toys, etc, a few books (The Little Book of Scientific Principles, Theories and Things, Necropolis, Su Doku, etc), new RAM for my laptop, a box of those impossible metal toys that you have to untangle, Rubik’s cube, and a couple of other things.

I went to Gizmolio’s place in the morning, and we had foody things, then we went to another friend’s place in the afternoon, and at about 4 o’clock my family and I went down to my Uncle’s place, where we had a big family get together (not as big as some years, but still 18 people :D)

What did you get? What did you do? Where did you go? Post comments here! Please?

ONOZ! I have been neglecting to blog again! I had a bunch to write about the other day, but none of it seems very exciting any more… Anyway, the other day, I was checking my blog stats, and I noticed that my views had spiked. On closer inspection, I found that almost all of them had come from http://alphainventions.com. I went and visited the site, and I liked it a lot. On the main page, there is a frame showing the most recently updated blogs on WordPress, Blogger, and whatever that Microsoft one is… I can’t be bothered looking up the name… Anyway, it is really great for finding new blogs – when you see one you like appear, just click the pause button to stop the flow of updates. In other news, the Lair of Tamasys has been down for the past two days on account of the fact that we moved the router and I haven’t reattached the Ethernet cable. Lazy me. Anyway, must dash, it is late. Merry Christmas to all two of you who bother to read my blog and have a good day 😀

EDIT: I forgot to tell you what the title meant – it stands for Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Blogs. Because I was neglecting my blog, geddit? (My God, I hate peope who say “geddit”…)

ANOTHER EDIT: There were a plethora of spelling errors in this post (the result of trying to blog from an iPod…), but they are all fixed now.

Hi Everyone!
If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I just went on a short, three day holiday to Halls Gap in the Grampians. It was heaps of fun.
We stayed in a pyramid while we were there – yes, a pyramid. Grampians Getaway Resort has units shaped like pyramids, which were really nice and comfortable. Lots of fun.
We walked up the Boronia Peak and Pinnacle trails, which were exhausting but worth it by the time you reached the top. The Pinnacle is a jutting out bit of rock which sticks out from a cliff at the top of a mountain, which according to various websites is 686m high. I guess that is above sea level, because I was most definitely not half a kilometer off the ground. It is, however, very, very high (I would say about 100m drop off the side…), and some insane people were WALKING ALONG THE EDGE OFF THE CLIFF!!!! One guy was standing on the sloping edge of the cliff – all it would have taken was a slight breeze… SPLAT.
Anyway, it was heaps of fun, and I now have 46 RSS feed posts to wade through…
Now, I think that I will write one or two more posts tonight, so be prepared.

For the next three days I will be staying in Halls Gap. I’m hoping it will be fun. We’ll be walking a lot, and I won’t have any internet! Therefore I won’t be able to blog or work on the Lair. Sorry about that…
Anyway, I will see you all when I get back 😀

I have just come back from Bluemonkey’s party, which was lots of fun, and I am writing this now in the hope of beating everyone else to it. I will post a link in the morning, as I can’t be bothered waiting for Safari (I am writing this on my iPod) to load the page…

EDIT (1 year and 5 days later…): I never posted the pingback! Here it is: http://bluem937.wordpress.com/2008/12/13/party-type-thing-and-general-post-filling/.

Hi There!

I know that I don’t usually start my posts with a greeting, but there you go.

Anyway, I am thinking about and planning a new project for the Lair, which will be very exciting. I can’t wait.

If anyone has experience with PHP, MySQL, and web design, I would love to hear from you! I know a bit, but not masses, so it would be great to work on this with someone.

For now, the project is a secret, but if you read the homepage of the Lair recently you will know what it is…

Anyway, I’m off to continue posting on the Fourm.

P.S. The Any Key has a new comic out, Click.

I was in bed the other night, when I thought to myself, “The Lair needs a new name.” This was at about 11:30pm, so I was very, very tired. I thought, “I know what a good name would be! ‘Ingots in a Sandwich’!” I then proceded to remind myself that I was very tired and that I would see how dumb the name was in the morning. At least I got that part right…
Anyway, that was my blog post for today.
