I'm 5 years old 28 November 2008
It looked okay in Mozilla Firebird, but I carefully checked it in Internet Explorer 5 again. All of the floats seemed to be shepherding their content perfectly, so I uploaded the final version of my CSS file. ...
The Man in Sydney 15 July 2007
When you tell fellow Melbournians, they howl with disdain. When you tell Sydney-siders, their first response is a quizzical "Why!?". But I've gone and done it anyway. I've moved to Sydney. ...
Green screens 27 March 2007
Today, while I was booking a flight to Sydney with Virgin Blue , I noticed a new ad on their site promoting a feature called Carbon Offset . I'd heard about being carbon neutral before, but had thought it was ...
Left on a jet plane 31 December 2006
This year was the first time I'd been overseas in over ten years, so I figured I'd make the most of it. This list of cities I visited this year ( idea borrowed from Tim ) is mainly a reminder to myself of how much ...
Holiday: Paris (July 9 - July 14) 20 August 2006
Ah, to be in the World's most romantic city without any romance. Still, you have to make the best of things, so luckily that first day in Paris I had the most awesome smoked salmon club sandwich ever. Mmmmmm ... ...
Holiday: Lisbon (July 2 - July 9) 19 August 2006
Portugal was planned as our holiday from the holiday, and it filled that niche perfectly – quiet, relaxed, and peaceful ... mostly. On the flight from Barcelona to Lisbon, ...
Holiday: Barcelona (June 27 - July 2) 31 July 2006
Ronaldinho's toothy grin greeted us on the road out of Barcelona airport. Who better to advertise for fresh-making chewing gum? We were headed for Las Ramblas, the series of ...
Holiday: Rome (June 23 - June 27) 19 July 2006
By my calculations I nearly died about ... 7 times in Rome. This was mainly due to the lack of any road markings whatosever, the optional nature of traffic lights, and the general insanity of the drivers. In fact, I' ...
Holiday: Venice (June 20 - June 23) 08 July 2006
It was a curious mix of cabin mates to be sharing a train ride with for the next two hours – a nun in a brown habit, a student/musician/vagrant from San Diego, and an Italian native who we never really ...
Holiday: Prague (June 18 - June 20) 03 July 2006
Post- @Media , I'm on holiday until the end of July. In the meantime, I'll indulge my site in a bit of personal record-keeping, more for my own memory than anyone else's benefit. ...
Four things 26 January 2006
You can always tell how popular you are by how long it takes for a meme to get to you. After following quite a few links back up the chain on this one I ended up at a dead end over a month ago ... my ego is now at ...
It's cool to be old school 05 January 2006
When you're working in a technology field it always seems like the motto is "newer is better". Having just turned the Web 2.0 corner, we're now looking ahead to Web 3.0, and dreading Web 4.7. Don't use PHP, use Ruby ...

Birthday 2.0 28 November 2005
Oh! My blog birthday almost passed without me noticing; it's just been that short a year. I can't believe that it's been two years since I first put up this site. Feels more like 700 days ... 730 ...
Hey Cam, what'cha been up to? 13 September 2005
With an entry approximately once every 68 days, you may well be wondering why you bothered bookmarking this site (you did, didn't you!?!?). Well, I can tell you I haven't been sitting around whittling miniature carvings of my ...
Free to roam 15 February 2005
Although some people think I don't do any work at all, last friday was my last time at a full time job, at least for a little while. The countless hours spent working well into the night for on- ...
Festivities 24 December 2004
The question is, to write something meaningful about design when everyone's too drunk from their christmas parties to appreciate it? No, I think I'll just have fun making a festive feature ...
Birthday #1 27 November 2004
It was exactly this day a year ago that I tentatively put up The Man in Blue . I hoped that people would like it, that someone might link to it, but I've been overwhelmed by the ...
Hard drive surgery 11 June 2004
Moral no. 1: Backup ... regularly. Moral no. 2: Always keep useless junk. What could possibly go wrong just plugging the cables from my new computer into my old ...
Ow 29 March 2004
Earlier today I tried to squeeze my human shaped body through a 75% human shaped hole on the soccer field, and dislocated my right shoulder. After relocation (man that nitrous oxide is some fun stuff – every Simpsons ...
On the road 12 February 2004
This is my fourth day of travelling interstate. 4 days, 4 flights; one more. I'm not what you'd call an experienced traveller – last time I flew was ten years ago – and combined with my ...
Final shout out 11 December 2003
A final shout out to all the people who have visited this site since it opened and have linked it up. Thanks for the good words! Andrew Fernandez | Andre Restivo (Daily Bytes) | ...
A web site is born 28 November 2003
As a web designer, it's rather embarassing when you don't have your own web site. So, four years after I designed my first web site it was about time that I did. Hours of design, code, trashing, re-designing, ...
A web site is born (the technicalities) 27 November 2003
The discovery of XHTML/CSS was my emancipation from the cold, cold shackles of table-based web design. The likes of Jeffrey Zeldman , Douglas Bowman and Eric Meyer showed me the light (praise be!), ...
