Back on deck

Home from a 10 day holiday to the South Island. Tired. Had a great time. Stayed with Kirsty's sister in Christchurch, my parents in Otira, my brother in Greymouth and Kirsty's parents in Runanga. Caught up with a lot of friends, family and former colleagues (though not as many as I had hoped). Saw a lot of great movies with mates, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Spent time with my niece and Kirsty's niece, we ended up watching My Little Pony Friendship is Magic (incidentally, good show). Unfortunately missed an opportunity to challenge my almost decade-long Super Smash Bros rival (64, Melee and Brawl) to a rematch. Bought myself a cool jacket and a cheap (but good quality) parallel imported Android from DSE.

That's enough of a ramble for now. Time to get back to work.

Awesome, if you're in Auckland I'll be happy to let you stay (if you don't mind the couch).

I haven't tried Google+ Hangout yet.

I have. I have used it for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES too! I even taught Object Orientated programming over it. It's actually very nice. :)

Is it a full height replica?

As far as I can tell, yes. But it's neither sharp enough nor heavy enough to cause any serious damage.

Feel like giving hangout a go? Hopefully it will go down better than our co-op duke playthrough.

Hang out was a GREAT SUCCESS! I will be on tonight. I am actually leaving it running to meet with a couple people but until then I am free to chat. I will ask you to leave if they login.. Although there is anouther group. I would introduce you into if you encounter them..

I'm pretty sure that's not a real episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!

Haha, pretty sure the rivalry's been going on for over a decade at this point. Don't worry, I'll be in Auckland again at some point to crush you
