Hello From Vegas

We made it nice and safe to Las Vegas. Our flight was about 10 minute late but other than that it was pretty smooth. I almost had a bit of a problem going though customs. Made the mistake of telling them I was here to cover the CES. The customs guy said “Oh, you mean you’re going to work down […]

Viva Las Vegas!

Our bags are packed and we’re off to Las Vegas for the 2006 CES. Our flight leaves at 2:15PM and we’ll be landing in Vegas at 4:55PM. There will be a Maybach limo waiting for me at the airport to take us to our penthouse at the MGM Skylofts. However, I won’t be going directly to the suite. Instead I’m […]

Happy New Year!

2 Days till 2006

One of the reasons I moved to NetNation and set up my own servers in their collocation center was to avoid downtime.

Making A List And Checking It Twice

Today I put together the guest list for my 2006 CES Party. I’ve received over 200 replies from people wanting to attend the party. Most of these people I invited. Some I didn’t but try to RSVP anyway. Normally, I welcome extra people to come to my parties. After all, the more the merrier, right? However, with the sheer number […]

I Have A Living Room!

I’ve been living at my new house for eight months now and I can’t believe my living room still has absolutely no furniture. Well that all changed today as our Boxing Day shopping continued in full force. We went to Home Décor inside Lansdowne Mall and purchased a four piece living room suite that included a solid wood microfibre sofa, […]
