  • Writing Affidavits

    I pride myself in being an internet power user. I think I can research most things on the net very well. I’ve had to draft an Affidavit for the succession wars and so I thought “surely this is something I can discover on the net” Ha! I found definitions and some general (albeit useful) guidelines. […]

  • Time Management

    I’ve been a Palm user since 1999. My Palm m505 PDA has been playing up over the last few months. The digitiser is not responding. Generally it works, but then it fails at the worst possible time. Unfortunately I’ve taken to trying to remember stuff. My head is a lousy place for me to store […]

  • ASIC Closes Loan Calculators

    I’m not a big fan of ASIC while its bureaucrats’ policies and legislative interpretations mollycoddle investors from taking responsability for their investment education and decisions.

  • Auctioneers in Administration

    During my quiet time Mason Gray Strange Auctioneers and Valuers Pty Ltd (of Condell Park NSW) appointed a voluntary administrator. They owe us less than $50.00 so it’s not worth attending any of the creditors meetings. I’m too busy with my own legal defense to pay attention to someone else’s restructuring. The sloppy reporting on […]

    After a long and challenging journey (or at least several vodka’s too many) I’ve started at Ziggy’s Warehouse. Its URI is The online store is mostly finished and ready for testing (most of the products aren’t loaded yet). Lots of design changes on the way. I’ll post on Ziggy’s business at the Ziggy’s blog, […]
