The nine fireworks

Sydney australia

Looking toward 2007 last post for 2006

After my post the other day on 2006 and what I have achieved, this post looks at where I want to achieve in 2007.

I have sorted the goals into categories, or material and more emotional / physical.

Material Goals for 2007

  1. Double my businesses revenues

  2. Increase the net operating profits for the business

  3. Achieve the specific goals set out for the business

  4. Launch the new SAAS application by the end of April 2007

  5. Launch the two new sites by the end of May 2007

  6. Finally finish the story Life at a Private School once and all!

Emotional / Physical Goals for 2007

  1. Get to at least 75 kgs with less then 11% body fat

  2. Improve my actual fitness level to "above average" *in terms of my age, heart rate, endurance etc*

  3. Follow on with more Yoga to de-stress on a more regular basis

  4. Take more time out from working in the form of exercise and other activities apart from the computer
Whilst these may seem like new years resolutions, I don't 'do' resolutions. These are natural progressive goals that I have been working on for a long time and they are the next steps in what I have already been doing or achieving!

I always feel that to many people, when they set ' resolutions' they are un-achievable or not something that is realistic.

So there we have the goals and objectives for 2007, So what are your objectives for 2007?

And more importantly how are you going to achieve them? I am intending to post some of my tactics for achieving the goals and objectives.

Tag on Goals and Objectives

So now I am going to tag some people with writing their own goals and objectives. The rules for the tags are:

  1. Choose no less then two blogger friends
  2. Each friend tagged must post their goals and objectives for 2007

  3. They must then in turn tag another at least two people
  4. The tagged blogger must be notified by a blog comment on their blog so they know!

I am tagging, Brenton, Mark Darien, Alex, Dan, Phil, Nick, Narcicuss, sorry guys but I love reading all your blogs and chat to a few of you on a semi regular basis and I wanna push ya'll!

I will be mobile posting tonight from a view of the fireworks over Sydney Harbor at nine and then midnight! So what out of a post provided my phone works!


Quote for the day

Hello, could I get a larger bottle?

I'm an alcoholic not a barbie doll!



As an incredibly fitting post for the last day of the year, I came across a blog post about a yacht crew witnessing the creation of a new island in the South Pacific.
Apparently a yacht came across a sea of pumice stone some 16km wide and saw a plume of steam in the distance.

On venturing closer to the steam plume they discovered it was the top of a volcano spewing lava into the ocean and thus creating an entirely new island!
It's not every day that you see such an amazing sight and apparently it has excited volcanoligists world wide!
So for the last day of 2006 a post about creation and our planet!

Looking Backwards 2006 a year in review

Looking back at the last year I have had to really think about what was achieved and what was missed.

Probably the most important thing I achieved last year was stopping smoking, which I did on the 15th of February after attending an Allen Carr's Easy Way Clinic. For those of you who smoke and want to stop smoking, I cannot recommend this course enough. It truly was something that really made the final piece of the stopping puzzle all fall into place so much easier.

I certainly have managed to take far more control of my own mental and physical well being in the last twelve months, although it is still and up and down process at times. I have not had a bad panic attack since 2005, although certain situations still make me anxious, meetings are probably by and far my most difficult. I have learnt all these coping mechanisms to help me work my way through these situations, the best one has been to tell people at the start of meetings!

I have recognised that the more stressed in general I am, the more likely I am to feel anxious, which in turn the more likely I am to have the feeling of having a panic attack. So I am working on my overall stress levels by exercise and general relaxation techniques.

On my body shape front I have made some enormous gains this year, with a whopping 8 kilograms of weight gained. Whilst one kg of this has also been fat, the overall transformation of my shape has been nothing short of amazing! I am currently hovering between 72 - 74kgs and somewhere between 12 - 14% body fat. Still a tad higher than I want for the body fat but I will be setting some very specific goals for next year on that front.
What I do not know is how unfit or fit I am, and I unfortunately believe that I am quite unfit even with the level of exercise I do!

From a personal development standpoint I have learnt and applied two major new technical skills which have mad a huge impact in my work and business life, and in my business I have nearly doubled the revenue and look set to not only double the revenue again next year but should also see the operating profit triple!

There have been some sad times as well this year, with the passing of an old friend, Christopher, but that has been tempered by the re-acquainting of an old friend too.

So that's in a nutshell the year that was, the good achievements, not dwelling on the failures! So later I will start to set my goals for 2007 and the tactics of how I will be achieving them!


Closer to 2007 - 2006 a started disjointed review

As we get closer to 2007 I thought I would start reviewing the year that was!.

To start off let's look at some new words that have entered our vocabulary, I must admit a few of them do help define me, but i am not saying which!

EGO-SURFING: When you frequently check your name and reputation on the internet.

BLOG STREAKING: "Revealing secrets or personal information online which for everybody's sake would be best kept private."

CRACKBERRY: "The curse of the modern executive: not being able to stop checking your BlackBerry, even at your grandmother's funeral." (A BlackBerry is a popular handheld device that can be used for phoning, emailing and web-browsing).

GOOGLE-STALKING: Defined as "snooping online on old friends, colleagues or first dates."

CYBERCHONDRIA: "A headache and a particular rash at the same time? Extensive online research tells you it must be cancer."

PHOTOLURKING: Flicking through a photo album of someone you've never met.

WIKIPEDIHOLISM: Excess devotion to contributing to the online collaborative encyclopaedia, Wikipedia. (Wikipedia even has a page where you can test whether you're an addict: (

CHEESEPODDING: Downloading of a song "so cheesy that you could cover it in plastic wrap and sell it at the deli counter." Cheesepodders are especially vulnerable to soft-rock favourites from the 1970s.

Later today I will post some psts that are a more serious and personal look at 2006 and I am starting to look forard to 2007, setings goals and objectives!

My Inner Geek

I am a geek at heart, no not a nerd, that's different!

After the last several months efforts of working almost non stop, I can finally do some real geek stuff that I have not had the bandwidth for in a while.....

Yes that's right I can finally learn some new stuff and read all of those technical articles I have been putting in my favorites! It seems thatt every five minutes a new technique or technology is being created. And I rarely have time to give this stuff more than just a passing look.

So the big thing that I have been learning over the past year of course is AJAX. I have been slowly integrating AJAX widgets and stuff into both our products and our clients applications. But as yet when I read stuff it is for very specific purposes. But now I can just explore all the new stuff with no real specific problem to solve in mind!

What the?

Can someone please explain to me why groups of people are standing around a couple of bottles int he park drinking at 8:30am in the morning?

Can't they celebrate Christmas in the office or at work?
I expect this sort of stuff from some people, but people in beautifully cut suits?
And please if you drink too much at breakfast please have the decency to throw up somewhere away from me! That was just foul!

The week that was

It has been a hugely busy week this week, with mountains of work and enormous amounts of socialising and drinking. I must admit that I have been very lax with my gym routines this week having only been once at the beginning of the week.

The young American house guest left yesterday several hours after the boy got back from San Jose (he was away week). I was glad that they met as the American was supposed to have left the day before to meet up with other friends of friends.

Having a house guest is always difficult for me as my home is sacrosanct. I retreat from the world at home, but I love having people around. He was a good house guest and was great company for both the puppy and I.

I must admit it was kind of sad to see him go, under normal circumstances our paths would not cross as we come from particularly different cultures, he is way into BMX and extreme sports and well I know nothing about either!

So I was a bit sad because I enjoyed having him here and realistically I will not likely spend time with again unless he is staying with our mutual friend when we are there too.

My liver however will need some time to recover from this Christmas period, in fact I am contemplating whether I do a five day total detox in early January once the party season is over.

Last night was the Christmas party of a good friend, even more alcohol and the most amazing food as always. The friends is one hell of a good cook and spends days preparing and cooking for such an event. The picture above is from his apartment with fireworks in the background.

So the coming week will be extraordinarily busy, I have huge deliverable for quite a few clients to get done, not to mention the preparations for our families all coming to our apartment for Christmas!

Of Course the Religious Right Doesn't Like it

You know I just don't get the looney bin James Dobson from Focus on the Family. This time he is saying that the new movie Happy Feet is dark and promotes homosexuality.

His argument is, it's about a penguin who doesnt fit in, so therefore it's actually promoting the idea that homosexuality is genetic (um er by the way the penguin isn't gay).

Tis the Season to be Jolly

I love the season to be jolly, you actually feel as though it's ok to party and party and party!

Some friends of friends have come over from the states, so of course the nice thing to do is to show them round. And since one of the friends is a smokingly hot straight boy who loves nothing more than have a bander, well hey let's go!

So drinks turns into drinks turns into drinks turns into crashing the tail end of other friend's work Christmas parties.

Oh dear and I have to work today and I have more Americans for dinner and then drinks out tonight! Berocca here I come!

Big wheel 'would upset rhino sex'

BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- German animal rights activists have launched a campaign against plans to put up a giant ferris wheel in Berlin, saying it would disturb the sex lives of rhinos in a nearby zoo.

A group of investors has unveiled plans to erect a 175-meter high wheel for 120 million euros ($158.9 million) in the German capital, hoping to attract millions of visitors from 2008.
But animal rights activists oppose the project, saying the fully-illuminated wheel would disturb the rhinos' daily routine.

"We're worried that these endangered animals won't breed any more, which would hamper animal protection programs," Berlin's animal rights association said in a statement.

The planned Berlin wheel would be higher than the London Eye, which claims to be the world's tallest observation wheel at 135 meters, according to its Web site.



Logging Prevents Bushfires

I know that this is seriously off topic, but hey it's my blog and I will rant if I want to! Australia is in the grips of massive bushfires across the country. Many houses have been destroyed and thousands of acres of forest have been burnt so far.

The Federal Forestry Minister has said publicly that if there was more logging in these areas there would be no bushfires. - Source

Technically he is right, no forest = no fire, but the forest will recover in a few years as the Australian bush needs fire to keep itself going. In fact some Australian Natives only flower or germinate after a fire has burnt them.

So we have a dickhead politician who is obvisouly in favour of logging and destroying what little forests we have less (anyone seen the de-forestation of ares in the amazon?) so yeah sure there will be no bushfires but no forest for the future either.

So to him I say go fuck yourself and go back to your dickhead logging mates and start dreaming up more idiot things to say.

BTW - I am not against the planned long term forestry industry that manages plantations the world over. But I am against the wholesale destruction of old growth forests forever!

Why I woke up at 4am

This morning I was woken at about 4am, I had no idea why and there was lots of noise and people shouting. It made me tired all day beacsue I couldnt get back to sleep very well.

This evening I was told the apartment building behind ours started losing bricks into the street below, as you can see in the picture.

So now I know what woke me up at 4am! Hopefully the ugly bloody building will be torn down and we can all get rid of this blight of an architectural toilet.

My Version of the Christmas Door

So this is my version of the amazingly fantatsic door from the Altair I posted the other day. It doesn't work as well on the dark door, but I think it still makes an impact.


Further to my post on what I want to achieve in the future, Ferrari have released the pictures of the soon to be released Ferrari Dino 420. This car is pure sex on legs! and it even looks like the original Dino which I love so much.

Totally impractical and totally energy inefficient, but it's a gad damn ferrari.

The beagle did not like the music


On the Move

I can't believe it's already Friday and less than two and a half weeks to Christmas, now that is incredibly scary! It's almost 2007 and I have only just got used to 2006.

This week has signified a huge turning point for me as my business has moved offices. Almost three years ago we moved into our very first own office in the city. At the time the choice of position was made based on the most space we could get for the money with a great view.

We ended up with amazing views over the Western Harbour of Sydney in an older building that was not particuarly well maintained. At the time we were living a little further out, on the edges of the inner city rather than right in the heart of it.

This meant the only way for me to ge to the office was either by the bus which I hated because it was so unreliable, or get a lift with the Partner.

Then two years ago we purchased an apartment right in the heart of the gay nightclub district and literally a ten minute walk from the city centre. Problem was though, my office was at the far side of the city which was a thirty five minute walk each way.

I have been trying to negotiate out of our lease for ages, even back when to get to my office for three months you had to walk through a construction zone with exposed wiring, the landlord would not even reduce the rent!

But a friend's company has just moved into a great new office space, ten minutes from the apartment and I have moved my business in with theirs!

So I now have an amazingly groovy new office space, less than fifteen minutes walk from home.

It has been a move with stress though, I don't handle change well, but now that it has been a few days I feel fantastic, and the beagle loves it!

The Photo Tom Cruise does not want us to see




December 5, 2006



NGOs from around the world welcomed a landmark statement on human rights, sexual orientation and gender identity, delivered last Friday at the United Nations Human Rights Council by Norway on behalf of 54 States.

The statement condemns human rights violations directed against people because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, commends the work of UN mechanisms and civil society in this area, calls on UN Special Procedures and treaty bodies to address these issues, and urges the Human Rights Council to pay due attention to human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, including consideration at an upcoming session.

"This is the largest-ever statement delivered at the UN on sexual orientation issues, and the first ever to explicitly highlight human rights violations based on gender identity." said John Fisher, Co-Director of ARC International. "We are encouraged by the measurable increase in cross-regional support for sexual orientation and gender identity issues in recent years. The time has come to ensure that human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity receive the international scrutiny and condemnation they demand."

"Numerous Special Procedures have documented violations of the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons," said Chris Sidoti, Director of the International Service for Human Rights. "These violations include use of the death penalty, torture, criminal sanctions, police harassment, violence, rape, beatings, disappearances, denials of freedom of expression, raids and closures of NGOs, and discrimination in education, employment, health and housing. Too often in the past, these human rights abuses have passed in silence. Now, the era of invisibility is over."

Rosanna Flamer-Caldera, Co-Secretary General of the International Lesbian and Gay Association highlighted the fact that more than 460 NGOs from 69 different countries had joined together to commend Norway for its leadership and support the statement. "Activists from around the world often work on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity at risk of their jobs, their freedom, even their lives. The Norwegian statement has united States and NGOs from around the world to send a clear message that human rights violations directed against our communities can no longer be ignored."

Earlier this year, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour in a keynote speech to an International Conference on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights noted that "violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons is frequently unreported, undocumented and goes ultimately unpunished. ... This shameful silence is the ultimate rejection of the fundamental principle of universality of rights. ... Excluding LGBT individuals from these protections clearly violates international human rights law as well as the common standards of humanity that define us all."

As the coordinator for African-rapport and as an educator activist for Amnesty International USA, I express my disappointment of political leaders, and all other key players who do not to accept that sex between men exists and that is relevant for AIDS prevention, care , support work, and to support HIV programs directed to MSM.

We believe that it is time to start a debate on repealing anti-gay criminal laws in UN. We are all created equal; that we are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to all human beings.

A human rights-based approach to HIV/AIDS starts from the premise that human rights abuses contribute to the spread of HIV and undermine attempts to protect people from becoming infected, and once infected, from receiving needed treatment and care. The promotion and protection of LGBT human rights must therefore be at the center of all aspects of an effective response to HIV/AIDS.

Education and information is the weapon that needs to be used to eliminate homophobia, discrimination and racism—implemented in schools, or in form of information to law-makers, adults, parents, and law-enforcement officials.

You and I know that this fight is not over. We will never waver when it comes to defending our values and fighting for what we know is right.

Human dignity has no nationality; it is inherent in all people of the world simply because they are human. I hope that we together shall not passively defend the principles stated here but that we shall fight for them with all the vigour within our hearts, seeking to advance and perpetuate our human liberty and individual dignity.

Yours truly

drew - I know I am being lazy reprinting this but I do believe that this is a significant step forward for the United Nations. The next step is to actually create UN policies that force teh UN signatories to take the protectio and equality of gays and lesbians seriously throughout the world.

The Last Song Elton John

I suppose being World Aids Day some melancholic thoughts are more than allowed. I think of all the songs related to the HIV / AIDS Crisis, Elton's song "The Last Song" is the one that has the most meaning to me. For those who have never heard the song or seen the video, it is well worth the couple of minutes of your time.

It's a sort of final resolution between a father and a son who is on his death bed. Incredibly powerful and both sad yet happy.

Much like Elton's song Sacrifice with was the de-facto song for Ryan White a young hemophiliac who died of an AIDS related illness in 1990.

The Last Song was featured in the movie "And the Band Played On" a Historically important book and movie about the American Government's indifference to HIV/AIDS in the eighties when it was pretty much thought to be a gay cancer.

I only vaguely remember the movie when it came out, but I do remember the mid eighties, when I was a young teenager I performed professionally with a lot of amazing actors, singers, designers, directors, dressers, musicians and more. The creative community was almost decimated by the AIDS Virus. I was 14 in 1986 when the first person I knew died, the last was in August of this year.

So remember SAFE SEX!
