So What's The Story Cam?
23rd June 2003
Ali is nearly due (July 12th), and I'm still working on the website :-)
We moved to Brisbane now, email me for the address if you didn't get it
My knee injury is coming along pretty well, I should be able to start soon.
I got two great physios, and I'm soon to start with the strength coach! Yay!
about time. I'm still coaching the USC mens/womens team for the Uni
games (around July 6th I think).
In other news, I'm building a computer - about time really. Hmm .. what else. Not too much, everyone is doing well,
and I'm trying to work hard to get everything done before the baby :-).
Currently (June 2002), I'm working on my website (FlamingText.com) full time, using money that I saved while I was working
in the US. I gave myself 6 months to make it profitable, but 6 months has
already past, and I'm still working on it.
So far the results are promising, hits are up, money is up :-) But I won't
be retiring any time soon...
I currently live in the Sunshine Coast in Coolum Beach (where Alison and I
bought a unit).
Wed Jun 26 2002 - My brother won tickets to the
State of Origin
final in Sydney.
I tried to spot him on the tele, maybe tomorrow on the footy show.
Queensland wins!! (draw == Qld wins)
Wed Jun 19 2002 - We won the Noosa Volleyball League
Men's A division. Trouncing Omegas in 3 sets :-) The guys on the team were
all happy cause they had made the finals 4 or 5 times in recent years but
this was the first win. Beats me why, we (Redskins) have awesome players!
Wed Jun 12 2002 -
Last weekend I played in the Queensland State Volleyball Championships.
Even though I've been out of the country for 10 years, I recognized two people!
We didn't do very well, but were missing a few "big guns". We started to play
better on the Sunday, and the team definately needs some more indoor practise.
May/June? 2002 - I finally got around to transfering over to
the Coolum Soccer club. I get a lot more game time now :-)
I used to work for a company called
The Local Group
and contracting around to various places.
One of which was
MegaSoft (located in Freehold),
where I wrote a unix plugin (for Netscape) to do software distribution.
That was quite fun, and interesting to think of a piece of software
sitting on 20 million desktops (which it didn't)!
I will soon be applying for my Green Card (update: I won one in the
I used to at work at Outsource Labs
where I write lots of java code (yay!) and (sometimes) develop/teach
I spend a fair amount of my free time
checking out Marimba and
answering questions about their technology and java in general.
are my Channels. They now
ship their tuner with direct access to my transmitter!
(check the What's "Hot" Tab)
In my spare time I abuse some sites (usually my friends, and also
notibly AT&T and
Gamelan and JavaSoft .. but I haven't done this very much in the last few
In yet different spare time, I help maintain the
NJ Volleyball page, and the
Garden Empire Volleyball Association
I think most useful page I have is a frames
version of the Java API but no-one seems
to use it. I attribute this to one of two things: either it really does
suck, or there really just aren't many people out there who actually program.
(but the people at JavaSoft like it, and
from their pages!). Update: Sun has moved their jdk 1.2 and above to use my
Java Api! I worked with them over a few weeks to get it into the current form!
In my other other spare time a play a little volleyball for the
and coach Rassig
and Team Extreme.
- I was in Lylse Illinois. Teaching a Java Class for Outsource Labs (Sept. 30 -> Oct. 4)
- I went to Slovakia! (Oct 15-22) I was there to surprise my (now ex-)girlfriend for her 21st birthday. She was surprised!
