Currently sitting in the drupalmel meetup - Drupal Users of Melbourne gather to share thoughts, discoveries and challenges. It's good fun. The new digs at publicity works are very spacious, so if you've been wondering where to find fellow Drupal folk in Melbourne, consider adding the 2nd Tuesday of the month to your calendar.

We're working on a website at http://drupalmel.net
and we next meet this Saturday for a code sprint

Viva the Vuvuzela

Submitted by kattekrab on Sun, 20/06/2010 - 12:20

Blue plastic horn called a Vuvuzela - the sound of the 2010 world cupWorld cup fever has taken over - and airwaves across the international media are buzzing with the sound of the Vuvuzelas. I went to openclipart to see if I could get a picture of one, and found there were none. So I created these. Enjoy!

I already posted about Jude Milhon for Ada Lovelace Day...

But I also want to tip my cap to the following ubergeekchix... all making a difference in their own ways. I admire them all.

Jude Milhon - Future Hacker - Ada Lovelace Day

Ada Lovelace Day was started last year in 2009 by Suw Charman. It's about celebrating, recording and uncovering the achievements, discoveries and special qualities of women in technology and science.

We are not Unicorns. We are everywhere. But our history is easily submerged, discounted and dismissed. Too easily forgotten.

Thanks Suw - this is an awe inspiring initiative. I salute you.

For Ada Lovelace Day 2010 I salute Jude Milhon.

Walking & Swimming

Submitted by kattekrab on Tue, 23/02/2010 - 11:07

I went for a swim today! And yesterday too - And I've been walking daily for over a week. It feels good. It's been too long.

I've also cut out sugar in my coffee.

I've become obese in recent years and it just feels awful. It's never been about body image for me. Thank goodness! I've seen the heartbreaking consequences of that kind of thinking. But I do really enjoy having energy, and I've been lacking that for a long time now. I put it down to spending too much energy just carrying too much bulk.
