My week of Monday 30 August to Sunday 5 September 2021 included a COVID-19 test which once more came back negative. The wait was slightly more stressful than I thought it would be. I’m hoping productivity will return as spring continues, though I still produced two podcasts this week.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 588: Spring brings two podcasts, one COVID-19 test, and a currawong”
My week of Monday 23 to Sunday 29 November 2020 wasn’t as productive as some recent ones, but it helped reduce my stress. There isn’t much listed here, but it feels like a pause before the run-up to the end of 2020. Also, there were critters. And hot weather.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 548: Critters, heat, and a day trip to Manly”
Monday 2 to Sunday 8 November 2020 was one of the strangest months in my life, not because of what I did but because of what went down in America.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 545: Post-turtle moth with some encryption”
My week of Monday 26 August to Sunday 1 September 2019 was full of distractions, pleasant and otherwise. It included some much-needed relaxation after the stresses of recent weeks.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 483: De-stressing in Manly, Adelaide, and Willunga”
My week of Monday 18 to Sunday 24 February 2019 was an adequate mix of productivity and de-stressing. Let’s concentrate on the former for now.

The Week Ahead
On Monday, I’m wrapping up this phase of work for DirectorTech, at least ideally. There’s a chance it might overflow into Tuesday. Either way, Tuesday will also contain the running of errands in Leura and Katoomba. And on Tuesday or Wednesday I’ll write something for ZDNet.
Thursday will be a long one. It’s a Sydney day, including a briefing from Symantec at lunchtime, the now-traditional Annual Communications Industry Boat Cruise on Sydney Harbour in the afternoon, and drinks and dinner with friends in the evening.
Friday and the weekend are as yet unplanned, but I know there’s a lot to fit in.
The key items are the two podcasts.
- Sunday 17 December: “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 5” will be recorded live at the West Ryde Hotel and streamed live from 1400 AEDT via stilgherrian.com/edict/live/ and Spreaker apps. You can still book a free audience spot.
- Tuesday 19 December: A regular episode, as always streamed live from stilgherrian.com/edict/live/ and Spreaker apps from 2100 AEDT.
Assuming that the Public House Forum podcast is well-received, I’m thinking of lining up more such episodes early in the new year. There’s support for the idea of doing one in Ballarat, with possibility of doing one in Melbourne en route. I’ll ponder that further in due course.
Other than that, I’ll be writing for ZDNet and generally winding down before the Christmas break. 2017 has been an exhausting year.
