Our lovely (/ poor long suffering) grad student was up in Auckland yesterday and, harking from Wellington it seemed like a good idea to change her personal message on her IM client to “I LOVE Auckland”.

This provided us with some amusement, which compounded this morning when we noticed she’d not changed it back

The Boss(es Boss) is Blogging!

Hurrah, welcome to the blogosphere Miki Szikszai!

We’ve been discussing internal communications within our team for some time now, and recently had an offsite at which our profile was hotly debated. Blogging was one of the ways we identified we could raise our profiles internally and (where appropriate) externally.

For those of you still confused as to what I’m talking about (i.e. probably everyone), I’ve recently hooked up a SlingBox to a Sky STB Decoder and am now able to placeshift my sky viewing across the internet to my PC or my mobile phone.

WoW – The MMOGs are taking over!

The boss found this great site last week – makes for some pretty scary/impressive reading!

The website started out as a bit of a personal interest research into Massivly Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOGs) and, while still not a commercial undertaking, the site has gained quite a following – to the extent that some of the game publishers are sending this guy their ‘actual’ numbers (read into that what you will fudge factor )
