Which Webmaster Are You?
Now you know...  and KNOWING is half the battle.
Take the [webmaster quiz] today!
Okay, I promise that this is the last one of these things that I do. These quizzes have gotten a bit out of control, but I thought this one might be sufficiently original to be worth taking. And it's pretty spot on too!

Is it just me or does James Reyne have a mouthful of marbles?

Dang singa,
Dong singa,
Whooaahh, we're gonna ride...

... actually turn out to be

Things justa
Don't seema
Tooo be going right...

Man, am I so happy to finally know the truth after all these years! He is speaking English (sorta) after all!

Borland trusts you... really...

I almost forgot, Friday was the two year anniversary of the registration of the domain! (I know that because now I have to fork out to get it re-registered.)

Over the last 2 years I've had a lot of fun writing updates to Planet MadDog. After a quick count, I've posted 98 news posts, 20 articles, a whole bunch of ICQ conversations, and a whole lot more besides. I've had over 3,500 unique visitors in the last 6 months serving out over 11,000 web pages. My most popular day was on Saturday when I received 77 unique visitors. My highest ranking search engine referrer is "naked girls washing cars" in Google, clocking up 949 page views coming from it.

To commemorate this milestone I had planned to relaunch Planet MadDog with an all new design and backend system, but little things like getting married, getting ripped off and getting err.. honeymooned has meant that this has been delayed somewhat. I can now get stuck back into it, and I hope to get this new design happening soon.

So, I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to Planet MadDog. May it continue to bastardise the very fabric of modern social structure with it's noncoherant ramblings.

Sphagnum Rock the Aussie
Well, as far as Shepp's concerned, Sphagnum have made it. On Friday night we played at the Hotel Australia and we all had a ball. I was probably more nervous about this than I was about any other gig so far. But we played well, got some good feedback and above all, we had a great time. Now the real test is to see if we can get another gig there.

We also played on Saturday night at a 21st out in the sticks near Euroa. This was a more laid back gig, which is good, cause I was still a little knackered after the night before. The crowd was a bit stale, but we still had fun up there, although I didn't realise how cold it would be outside in the wind.

Oh, and if you would like to book Sphagnum for an upcoming event, let me know.

Sorry for the downtime over the last few days. My server's motherboard shit itself and we had to organise a replacement. Anyway.. Gotta go... I'm late for setting up for our gig tonite at the Aussie!

Fear Kong...
What Video Game Character Are You? I am Kong.I am Kong.
Strong and passionate, I tend to be misunderstood, sometimes even feared. I don't want to fight, I don't want to cause trouble, all I ask is a little love, and a little peace. If I don't get what I want, I get angry, and throw barrels and flaming oil at whatever's stopping me. What Video Game Character Are You?

Celebrity... status... rising...
Remember when I mentioned that our wedding photo might appear in the Herald Sun? Well it happened on Sunday. YAAY!

Click here to see the article.

In other news, I'm de-jetlagged and back at work. Unfortunately it seems as though I've lost about 44 photos from the honeymoon due to a corrupt memory card. Gah. At the moment, my efforts are concentrated on fighting Crownstar International to get my money back. More news to come.

I'm home!
Yeah, well as stated above, I'm back home and happy as hell to be here. It's always nice to go away for a bit and see the world, but its better to come back home and sleep in your own bed.

Speaking of bed, I'm jet-lagged like a mofo so that's where I'm off to now. Night.
