A few interesting things…

Over the last few weeks I have been taking care of Customer Care for our Cadimage Tools International Customers. It is certainly a job where you get right down to the detail and consequently you may have noticed a drop off in my blog postings!

I have also fallen behind in reading everyone else’s blogs but I have come across a few things that are either great, cool, I agree with or just plain weird!

There is the recently released Dell Adamo which is a pretty cool looking, extremely thin laptop.

Xero has made two great announcements – Xero Personal and a massive increase in Revenues

Andy Lark has a good point about Rugby going globalit must be tough being in the US and not being able to watch the All Blacks. I also though his post on Critical Non Essentials was interesting.

There are the Mindflex puzzles where you use your brain power to move objects!

Lastly there is a post about 10 Secrets To Staying Informed About Web Design – I think this could help me keep up with all my blogs not just those on Web Design, but I haven’t yet had time to read it!


Some of the readers of this blog will click immediately to the significance of 1957.

Yes, that’s right! 1957 was the last time Otago held the Ranfurly Shield.

After our 6-0 win against Canturbury during the Super 14 we couldn’t match the Cantab’s on Saturday night, in what was our second attempt this season.

In the last 52 years we have had 21 attempts and I can remember at least 2 years where we fortunate to get 2 bites at the cherry.

Anyway, what I found quite interesting which helps illustrate how long it has been was the following:

  • 1957 was the year of New Zealand’s last execution!
  • John Lennon and Paul McCartney met and 3 years later the Beatles were formed!

52 years is a long time…
