Google Summer of Code 2009

Its on again, And theres only a few short hours left to submit student proposals (I think).

This year, I’ve signed up as a Mentor in the WordPress Project. To all students: Good luck, And make me proud.. err… Sure.

Anyway, I’ve seen a few projects in the queue which have been interesting, And of course, A fair few pieces of rubbish (As you may expect).. Will I be mentoring something? We’ll find out when the projects are announced :)

Anyway, Not much to say.. Other than a rainy weekend.. And i’m still looking at options for buying a camera… and phone.. and laptop.. and whatever other tech gadget you can think of.. Many people are surprised to find that I dont have decent of the above items.. No idea why, but hey. :)

How powerful nature can be: Bushfires in Victoria, Australia

Whilst I could’ve chosen any of the images, these’ll do.. (And “Something Cool” Might not be the best labeling for this, Considering its pretty hot..)
