BLOG - THOUGHTS ON TECHNOLOGY & LIFE

Where in the world have I been?

June 5, 2007 | In Life, University, Web 2.0

Since it’s been quite a while since the hype that surrounded CeBIT AU (and I’ve still got some reviews to write up when I get a chance), I thought I’d let you know what I’ve been up to of late!
I’ve been doing a lot of Uni related activities of late – assignments, some paid work here and there, more assignments, and meeting people here and there. Uni has certainly kept me busy – and I’m looking forward to my break from studies (except for the one final exam I have) on Thursday afternoon.
I’m continuing to work at McDonalds, but I’m currently looking around for a new job. I really like working with the people I work with (especially the management, they’re all really great), but I’d like to find something I’m a little more interested in. Something up the tech side or something to do with photography would be great.
Here’s a few projects I’ve been working on at the moment, some old and some new.

  • St. Faith’s Youth website was launched recently, and proved to be a pretty big hit. We’re hoping to implement podcasts and vidcasts when I the time to do it. I’m trying to get a better production workflow happening, but that is proving difficult with only one computer.
  • As well as the youth website, I’m also producing a series of videos in the lead up to our yearly Youth Camp called Mission Impossible, with the theme this year looking to be Aliens, and based on 1 Peter. I’m also doing the technical production for the weekend, so I’m organising sound, lighting, AV and potentially a small scale radio station to run over the course of the weekend.
  • Various paid jobs mainly doing web design/consultancy and a few photography/media jobs on the odd occasion.
  • I’ve been elected as Computer Systems Officer for the UTS Programmers Society, which has taken quite alot of my time over the past few weeks. We’ve just swapped to a new file server with a much larger storage capacity and RAID, and I’ve had quite a few teething problems [1] that are yet to be resolved.

So, as you can see I’ve been pretty busy. But of course, that’s no excuse for not finding the time to write anything. Hopefully I’ll get back into writing once Uni finishes up. I’ve got a few things that I’d like to share with you all, but you’re just going to have to wait!
