Weekly update

Ok, so this is a quick update of things workish;

  • I've been busy with (saving) a politically hot project that will be launched soon.
  • I've done more interesting work on the xSiteable Publishing Framework. Watch this roof.

And a few personal tidbits;

  • Me and the wife is going to join a collague and his wife and friends for a) dinner and b) baroque concert with Salute Baroque! tonight which I'm really, truly looking forward to.
  • I've lately watched the OperaTunity television program series, and I really, truly loved it! I sat - portwine in hand - stunned, moved and happy. Thank you.
  • We're refinancing our loans; a big venture into being capital-aware. Wohoo! On the same note, we've also switching phone and internet company. (I'm sick of the poor quality of service and high rates from Telstra
  • My social life has had an injection lately. What's up with that?
  • I'm less egoistic in my approach to deliverables than I used to be. Oh, and I've killed my nasty habit of brutal honesty in social settings. Hmm.

Anyway, next week will see the first glimpses of releases of stuff I've been doing. As I've said before; watch this roof.

Hey, don't you look at me like that. There is no implication. None whatsoever. Nope. Nosirree.

Brutal honesty is not a nasty habit! It should be a social norm. Shame it isn't.

I don't understand. People want one to tell them the truth, but if you tell them straight up, they'll get mad for pointing out a flaw- provided the truth is something negative about them. So one plays the dancing game, where one wastes time selecting words that will please this person whilst telling the truth simulaneously. But why bother? Honestly, if one can cut to the chase and reveal a displeasurable aspect of someone, why not do it? In the current world, where time becomes increasingly more valuable, it would seem the only logical action for one to take to simplify and streamline every component of life. Aside from this, I fail to notice the value of 'The Dance.' What does it accomplish? The same end result is produced-though perhaps with some additional negative feelings. Which leads me to think that I am expected to believe the heinous babble that one can overcome the loss of a lengthy relationship over time, but it is simply unspeakable to imform someone they have gained weight for fear of this person crumbling before their verbal assailant without hope of recovery. Someone out there, please, please, please inform me why we must skirt issues, when the outcome produced is virtually indifferent.
