Peter Dannock last shared their writing Space-saver
Many modern cars now come with a space-saver spare wheel, which is smaller than the regular wheel. The main reason for this is that the space-saver spare takes up less space, obviously, and is lighter than a standard wheel and tire.

Some vehicles don't even come with a space-saver spare. My...

Rollercoaster football

This football season has been a rollercoaster ride for my favourite team, the RichmondΒ  Tigers. After they had clinched the premiership in the last two seasons, they have had some big losses to counter this year.

Last week Richmond e got belted by the Geelong Cats, and I could bear to...

Password manager

It is not uncommon for many people today to have over 100 online accounts associated with their email address. It is not easy to keep track of so many accounts without falling into the trap of poor password etiquette.

This poor etiquette can include the use of passwords that are too...

Unremarkable

When I met with my financial adviser recently, he went on for ages about how he loved his new device, the Remarkable 2. My wife was in the meeting, and they both joked that it wouldn't be long before I would be purchasing one.

The Remarkable 2 is a note-taking tablet...

Zoom Zoom
Zoom, Zoom Zoom

It's the second Wednesday of the month, and so this evening is the Zoom Zoom club committee meeting. The club doesn't run itself, and it takes a dedicated group of twelve people to organise events for over nine hundred members across two states.

Pre-COVID, we would meet for pizza before our...

Bcc

One of the great benefits of using Bcc is that when someone attempts to "Reply all" with your email, the addresses placed in the Bcc field are not used in the reply.

I'm not too fond of getting an email that is part of a reply, and the first half page...

We have a signed contract

We were a little too eager in late March to be celebrating the sale of our investment property in Far North Queensland ( Licking our wounds Yours Truly ). A buyer made an offer to buy, but it fell through when the...

Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day, and though my mother passed away 14 years ago, I have fond memories of what a fantastic mother she was to me.

I have written about my mother Annie Yours Truly before, and how she grew up in Scotland...

There is always a risk

Randy's day at Sandown Raceway hadn't started well. In the first practice run of the day, he had an off-track excursion, hit the guard rail, and damaged his car.

As I drove towards turn six, I could see the yellow flag being waved, indicating an issue ahead, so I needed to...

Sore loser

It's not often I turn the football off before the game has ended, but I can't watch my team get comprehensively beaten on Friday Night football. Call me a sore loser if you wish, but eight goals to one favouring the opposition in the third quarter were too much for...

Payroll progress

The payroll system implementation project at work is going along quite well. The existing payroll process uses a manual calculation of the timesheet data, which is then manually entered into the pay run. The new payroll process will ingest timesheet data and then calculate the pay run automatically. That is...
