    Following my recent review of Shoeboxed (in which I have to admit I was amazed with the service) I have just received an email indicating that price changes are coming and on the Classic plan which is a great plan for those of you that would like to use it for personal use, this brings an ~25% increase […]
  • Could bugs like Heartbleed pose issues for biometric authentication? April 16, 2014
    Could a future bug, with similar implications to that of Heartbleed cause major concern to the future use of biometric security? Following the critical Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL, and reading countless articles online (see below for a few) an interesting conundrum came to my mind. As we now know, there are three requirements to overcome the […]
  • Shoeboxed Review – How all of my bills and receipts finally found a home April 14, 2014
    Shoeboxed may have just taken me from being 100% reactive at tax time to 100% proactive and that (in my books) is a massive win!

  • Snooze Alexandria… THE place to go for a new bed or Mattress March 25, 2013
    Finding a new bed can be a daunting experience, especially when there is such a large selection of mattresses these days.

  • The Riebke Northern Barossa Shiraz 2011 – an amazing taste January 1, 2013
    I have never been a big drinker, ever… I can safely say I have only ever been drunk twice in my life and didn’t like it much at all. So when I *do* have a drink I like to make sure it is a good one. After recently attending a wine tasting with a workmate […]

  • Call Me Maybe? – The wonders of what people will do for 15 minutes of fame! August 12, 2012
    It is amazing what some people will do for their 15 minutes of fame… Having said that, I have to admit I really do give this guy credit so make sure you closely watch the reactions of the onlookers. So without further ado, with the compliments of @Triple5Adam from Twitter (to which I both blame […]
  • Vices in life… what is yours? August 6, 2012
    We all have our vices in life, I can definitely say my biggest vice is Diet Coke… well WAS diet coke… My caffeinated beverage of choice and the addiction to caffeine are something I know all too well. I also know that I drink far too much of the stuff and now on doctors orders, […]
