More Beans

First up, I recently found out that my second-last blog entry 'Beans' did rather well in the contest it was written for, in fact coming in the top 10! So many thanks to Bodie for helping with the eloquence, and to all the folks running the NetBeans contest.
This is only a short entry to let readers know that I've managed to get myself a job at a little-known website company who have an office in Sydney. Which means moving at the start of next year, and making the most of Adelaide until then (hopefully I'll be able to come back on some weekends too).

yet still running the gauntlet -
Know that we're standing here with you,
beaten together,
broken together,
united by this humble existance.
We'll carry on.

As I write this, it is 3 hours into gyronet's March, and the old 'Final Goodbye' mp3 has had 39 hits already, and the new 'less ordinary' is on 17. Kinda makes me wish I could play full time once uni has fin…
