Further information on who I associate with, and links to other places that I find interesting or useful.
Yes! People willing to associate with me! To stick up for me! To make fun of me! To argue and fight with me! To make up after those fights with me! "That's what friends are for..."
Chris and I, no relation, seem to have our lives running in parallel, and our paths keep crossing. We both have similar backgrounds, musical training, religion, computers, education, employment, etc... My current job at Murdoch became available when Chris, the previous occupant of the position, moved on to be CWIS Manager at another campus.
Not wanting to follow him into THAT job, I decided to break the trend, and, errr, went out and got Married (and made him the Best Man).
Chris is also a fellow Clan Founding Member, and is infamous on the local servers (and PC Bashes) as a LPB (Low Ping Bastard), due to his inhuman accuracy.
Tamara is the biggest single cause of me revising my web pages. She started off as Old Friend 1.0, but after a lengthy courtship, was upgraded to Fiancee 1.0 on 10th May, 1997. A year minus a day later, we were married in Mandurah, in the local Catholic Church, and so she is now Wife 1.0. The Big Day was going to be the 26th of September, but was moved forward due to certain factors (including impatience), and so the majority of the organisation was done in the 8 weeks leading up to the Big Day! All in all, everything went very well, thanks largely to help from all our friends and family.
I did have a Live Countdown to W-Day here, and for over a year after the wedding, it showed negative time. I've finally updated it, and tweaked it now, to show a count-down until the next A-Day:
Tamara was a single mother, and so upon the upgrade to Wife 1.0, I also gained a bonus Son 3.0 called James, who is now a growing 5 year-old, in Pre-primary. He's very quick at learning things, and is quite independent for his age (sometimes too independent). He's also more computer-literate than many adults, and I've caught him installing new software on my PC (under Windows95) once or twice...
Being previously a single parent, at home most of the time, Tamara spent much of her time on the Web (she's a bit of a 'net junkie), and so picked up many Internet-related skills, and continues to be well-versed in the intricacies of advanced HTML coding. Since last November, she has also been working full-time at Murdoch University, helping maintain the aging CC-80, manning Helpdesk, and helping with CWIS work inbetween. She also does occasional HTML consultancy work when available.
These are the clubs, groups, and other associations with which I am a member of in one way or another.
^_^;;(And this guy's page does go over the top a tad; doesn't have enough about Tsunami, either.)
These are some links to software and information sites which I find indispensable when trying to find things on the Web.
