Bukkit/Minecraft Plugins · Apr 29, 08:37 by Shannon Wynter

Well, it’s been an awfully long time since I made a post, but in order to help those wandering Bukkit users that make their way here via Google looking for my Bukkit plugins (as Bukkit have removed links to my plugins from their forums because I refuse to change the way I run my website) I thought it might be time for a new post…

Meh, hard disk crash · Apr 6, 23:42 by Shannon Wynter

Sorry for the recent downtime, my 74 gig raptor drive died and while I have pretty recent backups I’ve had to recover some stuff through the use of google cache so forgive the out of order posts and missing bits (if I missed any)

A long awaited: Solar Updated · Nov 24, 11:38 by Shannon Wynter

Solar - Day 1 · Aug 16, 21:00 by Shannon Wynter

Soooooooo it survived the 1st day – more or less

My Aurora PVA3600 AU suffered a fan failure – so next week it’s getting replaced. I’m told it should be perfectly safe, it’ll just reduce it’s workload to remain cool.

Thoughts about the "ADSL Theoretical Speed Calculator" · Jul 29, 21:29 by Shannon Wynter

You know, a good 80% of the traffic to my website is directed at that page, yet almost none of my ad revenue comes from it…

Bitvise Tunnelier · Jul 9, 17:59 by Shannon Wynter

I’d like to take some time to introduce you to a cool free tool I found – Bitvise Tunnelier

Having just got my netbook setup and running (MSI Wind U100+ BTW), I wanted to provide a slightly more secure setup then just using my 3G provider – easiest way is a ssh tunnel to home with port forwarding

Always fighting the Australian government · Jun 5, 18:57 by Shannon Wynter

First it was the complete and total incompetence of the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, every single day I face the incompitence of the Department of Transport (and the government owned company Queensland Rail), now I face the incompetence and possible corruption of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship – Don’t get me started on the corruption of the Department of Child Services.

Damn search engines · Jun 5, 11:32 by Shannon Wynter

Someone please, feel free to tell me if I’m doing something wrong on my site that leads some engines to believe that they need to re-visit my site so damn frequently.

Seriously, in 5 days, just how many times do you need to index my site?

The fuss over Street View · May 14, 21:26 by Shannon Wynter

Can anyone tell me what the fuss over Street View in Greecel is all about?

How private can your privacy be if it can be seen from the street anyway?

More on twitter · May 13, 20:32 by Shannon Wynter

So… I’m still getting into this twitter thing – I never was much of one to be up on anything trendy – by the time I’m into it and up to speed I’m sure the trend will be over and I’ll still be wondering what the fuss was about.
