So anyway here I am posting from one of our clients computers while I wait for Office 2003 to install, and I look over at the day calender that a previous employee has left at this desk. The quote for today is " A person who believes-That there is a whole of which one is a part, and that in being a part one is whole-such a person has no desire whatever, at any time, to play God. Only those who have denied their being yearn to play at it." -Ursula K Le Guin
Now really, this isn't true. I feel that I am a part of society as a whole and I don't feel whole if I isolate myself, especially from one individual, Fiona, if this week has taught me anything it is how much I don't feel whole without her. She is working night-shift.
But the rest of this quote goes on to say the people who feel this connection would never desire to turn their hand towards omnipotence... I don't think soooo. I still play games where I am a godlike creature, or build computers that have a life of their own :), and we have a child on the way, sure some would say this is not playing God, but I think to an extent it is, this child will be shaped by what you teach them, and what you expose them too. In turn this child will pass on to its children, or it may possibly rebel throwing in our ideas and have new ideas of its own, but it will still have some basis on the grounding we give it.
So yes let me have community, let me have society, the internet and family, but let me also have untold power and riches, lets not forget the riches :P
Peace out all.

"What is this a monthly thing"

No offence intended with the above quote, but seriously, I am posting only once a month at present which is not good, gotta get everyone up to speed on so much.
Firstly and foremost-ly, in August I am going to be a father. Yes Fiona and I are going to be parents, we have a little one on the way, sex yet to be determined. Names not open for discussion, until baby is born... though I think I'll register a domain name once I know the sex.
Second; sorry but the website was down, maybe as my server at home was not responding due to me playing too much.
Thirdly; sorry about listing out my points :P
I just saw the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith trailer, and though omfg this is going to be sweet, even bought the vanity fair issue which had a rather interesting read on it. I thought if this movie lives up to the hype that is in the trailer then I am going to be one happy geek... that is until I saw the Revelations trailer, which was much better, and independent, and although in the vanity fair article, Lucas himself said he would move back to independent type films after star wars was finally done. This makes the next little snippet rather humorous, one of the independent star wars films(there are a lot see here) that someone made was premiered a little while ago which Lucas actually attended was sent into a spin when Lucas stood up in the middle and through a hissy fit and walked out. Rather humorous.
Ew guess what else, I think I saw Natalie Imbruglia on the bottom level of the QVB the other day, I can't be sure as I am not a big enough fan, hey I bought her sisters album, (puts on "don't stray from my site") oh and I don't know whether I wrote this story on here, but I saw George Lucas I am pretty sure about a year ago.
See it was when Fiona and I were living in Sutherland, and we went out late one night to the coles supermarket, about 10:30, and we were about to walk down the frozen section isle, when I held Fiona back and said, that is George Lucas, she said no its not, what would he be doing here. Anyway we continued on our way, and outside to the car... Parked next to us was a Volvo v70 with a sticker in the windscreen that said FOX Studios access pass... 2+2=4 it was George Lucas.
Ah well as Fiona said it was right not to bother him, he was probably out that late so he wouldn't be bothered.
Anyway I have rambled enough. And given everyone enough to digest.
Peace out all.
