Old farts taking over Facebook

I fell about laughing (That’s oldie-speak for I ROFL’d) when I saw this.  Pensionbook has been around for a month or so but it was too funny to let slip by without comment.

Pensionbook by Steve Wildish at Straight from my brain.  (click picture to enlarge)

Most of it is just too true.  The only inconsistency I can spot is that I know for a fact that my mate Al Bridges has been friends with Cliff Richards for several decades.

There now seems to be quite a buzz* around Edgar Jones.  Please excuse me while I race off to register edgarjones.com before it goes. :)

Our son’s parents

Mrs Fitz. Yes she is cute. And intelligent, too. I mean, look who she chose to marry.
Who has the most enigmatic smile?

A zoom in to the original image reveals an imperfect shave.

#2 Son recently purchased a fancy new camera.  It’s a Canon EOS 40D.  He brought it over to dinner one Sunday night and these were some of his first photos.

While Mrs Fitz gets the soft focus treatment, I get quite the reverse.  Go to #2 son’s Flickr photo page, zoom in to the original and you can actually count how many whiskers I missed when shaving.

Also on his Flickr pages, he says nice things about his mum, but calls his dad a “hippy”.  Do you think he is trying to tell me I should have spent more on education?  ;)

Qld MSDN User GroupA special Christmas treat for .NET developers this month.  We’ve been invited by Transmax to their facility at Gaythorne to have a peek under the covers of STREAMS, their world-class integrated intelligent transport system built with .NET and running on Windows 2003 Servers.

STREAMS manages all aspects of traffic operations on surface streets and motorways including Signal Management, Incident Management, Motorway Management, Vehicle Priority, Traveller Information and Parking Guidance.

Join us for a Christmas Beer and watch live M1 (and other locations around Australia) traffic management on the *really* *really* BIG screen!

Date: Tuesday 11 December
Time: 17:30 for 18:00 - 19:30
Location: Transmax Lecture Theatre,
37 Redgum Place, Gaythorne Qld 4051
(click to see map)

Note the different location for this month’s meeting.

Please park in the Baptist College car park (entry via Prospect Rd) and follow the concrete path around to the Transmax office.  If you are able to offer other members a lift from the city, please let me know and I’ll coordinate.

If you are unable to see the map, it is also on the QMSDNUG website at www.qmsdnug.org.

RSVP
All welcome.  Bring your colleagues.  Because Transmax is sponsoring the catering, it’s important to rsvp early.  If you haven’t already done so, an immediate rsvp by email to mike@fitzsimon.com.au will help with planning.

See you there,

Mike Fitzsimon
