Vi Hart calls herself "a recreational mathemusician currently living on Long Island." She talks faster than a machine gun, loves math, and draws like a dream. Her newest video: "Doodling in Math Class: Snakes + Graphs" is eye-popping.
Wow this woman is amazing. Her videos are just incredible, if you can keep up. The surrounding article is also worth a read.
There's still stacks left. At least enough for another burrito meal and a few smaller packs in the freezer to be used for pizza toppings.
We've had a fantastic weekend. Gorgeous weather, good times. Yesterday we kind of hung around a bit, played, cooked and the like. I cooked up some patience-required pulled pork (more on which later). Louis enjoyed his Mum's lovely spaghetti bolognese.
We also visited the new waterplay park in Marrickville and Louis had a fantastic time splashing about. Marrickville Council are doing some fantastic stuff for kids, and it'll be especially awesome once our new local pool opens in December!
If you seem to have received an email from me about my new Chinese web presence, yes it's spam. Seems to have been some kind of break in on my Google-hosted email.
The emails look like they've gone to everyone who's ever communicated with me. My apologies. I'll try and work out how it happened.
Looks like they got my shermozle at gmail account, though the default from address there is my usual. Bugger.
Optus have been served a Federal Court injunction preventing them from doing further misleading advertising. Optus is one of the worst in the sneaky behaviour department, with insane amounts of fine print in every piece of marketing they do. Have a look at this quick analysis of their fine print I did a while back, and a quick check shows it's still pretty accurate. Optus aren't, however, alone in this. All telcos have whole departments of people trying to find sneaky ways to legally say one thing when they mean another, to change plans so prospective customers can't compare them with competitors' plans and generally shonky tactics.
