A positive car/bike story (Yes, Satan ice skated to work today)

By 23 December 2013

Hi Rioters,
This will either appear a trifle (not the dessert) or potentially a firebrand statement to relaunch the ever present War on Cycling. Yes – I have a comment, a positive one, for a cyclyst on the road this morning.
For those of you smart enought to not be in Canberra this morning, the light was [...]

APS – work in a small agency or a big one ?

By 6 April 2012

Hi Rioters!
So I work in a large agency, and have done for the 4 years of my time here in Canberra.
I recently stunned myself by being found the least-worst candidate for a position in a small agency. The position comes with a significant pay rise but I’d have to leave a place where is honestly [...]

Selfish, careless or just an arsehole ?

By 23 November 2010

Making my way to work this morning, I observed a near accident behind me. The driver of a Mazda 626 failed to check his blind spot and almost side swiped a white Toyota 4wd as he tried to merge into the inside lane (Apparently I was pissing him off; those damn speed limits!).

I overtook on the left and smiled [...]

Skippy visits Canberra ?

By 18 November 2009

At 8:15 this morning on my way to work, I stopped at an intersection to cross Kings Ave. I was rather amused to see a long Eastern Grey Kangaroo bounding across the road and continuing up the hill towards the House.
As simple as this scenario was, it got me wondering. Was he:

RPG Fans sought.

By 10 February 2009

Having moved to ‘Berra and learning that the city is all about making your own fun, I’d like to start a weekly social roleplaying group.
I did go to the roleplaying society at ANU but it was all neckbeards and black clothes and not alot of normal. I’m looking for a new group of mates [...]
