"Crocodile Hunter" Irwin dies - Yahoo! News

Steve Irwin, the quirky Australian naturalist who won worldwide acclaim, was killed by a stingray barb through the chest on Monday while diving off Australia's northeast coast, emergency officials and witnesses said.

"Steve was hit by a stingray in the chest," said local diving operator Steve Edmondson, whose Poseidon boats were out on the Great Barrier Reef when the accident occurred.

Holy shit! The guy did so much for wildlife issues, only to meet his end like this? I guess he was doing what he always loved to do...

random stuff

OK then, I've gotten bored with having my DPX Media site cross-posting to this one, so I'll keep my personal shit on here while I put work-related stuff over on DPX.

I'm trying to quit smoking at the moment, I've managed to go for 6 days so far, but the cravings are still there. Maybe I'll go get some patches tomorrow...

Quick follow up… (WLW)

Well, I’m impressed with it. It took me about 20 seconds to get my WordPress blog detected. There seems to be a lot of the features I need; spell-check, multi-categories, set permissions on comments, trackbacks, tagging, wysiwyg using my blogs’ own styles.

There also appears to be plugin capability as well, it will be interesting to see what people can do to extend it…

Not bad for free software! I’ll have to see how it compares with other blogging tools (BlogJet, w.Bloggar, etc), but the first impressions are good. :)

Well, not much going on at the moment. Things have been quiet work-wise, and I’ve just upgraded the version of WordPress on my site, with cross posting to my LJ switched on.

Oh yeah, and my mum just surprised me with the news that she’s getting married this xmas. :) So, I’ll be in Mauritius in December…

Well, just sitting here with a mate, having a chat over a beer…

I’m going to be working on the design for this site over the weekend, once I learn how to create WordPress templates properly.

So, it begins again…

A year later, and things are once again on the up. Yep, I’ve taken the plunge and set up a WordPress site, the amount of trouble I had to go through to import my old Blogger entries (converting ATOM to RSS).

Over the next few days, I’ll flesh it out and get something half-decent up…

It has been a while since I last posted, but I have been quite busy getting my career on track. Working at a graphic design agency up in north London, making sure I have my tickets for Star Wars Ep III and spending a weekend at a Anthony Robbins seminar…

Right, after getting the pics processed, and breezing through another exam, I thought I’d post some of the pics from the gig. How happy do I look in that last pic?!!! :)

Just got back from Sophie B. Hawkins gig in Shepherd’s Bush, had an absolutely fantastic time, and I got to sing with Sophie! :) I’ll try to get some pics posted soon… If I can ever get to sleep tonight, I must set my alarm, as I have an exam tomorrow afternoon!
