So, due to my beautiful wife's horsey nature, we have moved out to a 100 acre farm in the parish of Ballalaba, 8km drive from Major's Creek, 25km drive from Braidwood or 100km from Canberra.
I took two weeks off for the move (was going to be three, but we moved later than expected). Plus time to set up the server (more RAM ordered: 256M is not enough), home network, etc. There's still a lot to be done, in particular we're going to knock out a wall between two rooms upstairs to form a large study. My aim is to have a classic study: bookshelves along the walls, large desk down one end and leather chairs down the other. If I can get a leather-bound edition of the C standard, it'd fit perfectly! Geeks understand immediately what I'm after: David Gibson pointed out that I'll need crossed swords above the fireplace for when my archenemy challenges me to a duel...
Since I'll be spending about 4 days a week in here, I want it to be the perfect hacking environment.
But like everything else in this place, it's a work in progress, and progress out here can be pretty slow. Here's a short list of things which are pending:
Still, with all the walking and repairing and no TV, I'm getting fitter. To prevent this from getting out of hand, Alli and I bought ourselves a Nintendo Wii as an early Christmas present.
