Some people think that it is not advisable to have your birthday or other personal details freely available on the web, to discourage identity theft. I would imagine that this does not bother you Cathy, as you have your web site in your own name, but what do others think?

I used to encourage identity theft - until I ended up with Timmy Mallett's.

I'm just wondering how many more Canberran web designers we can attract. That's probably all of them, actually [Wink] (my brother in law was one, but he's moved to Sydney now).

So Cathy when is your birthday? What presents do you want? And is TimM a mate of yours, as I see he is from Canberra too?

Good question. Every day of the year is my birthday, it's on Nov 17 officially. I don't care if the whole world knows. Maybe this year I'll get a happy birthday hahaha. As for the pressies:
1. Uni degree without having attended uni (accredited too, and yes a piece of paper is a laime request hehehe).
2. A job as a trainee in the IT industry somewhere.
3. A new boat.
...and that's just the tip of the ice berg!

I do know Tim actually. He is one of my competitors, he has more clients but I charge way more (got $7000 on one project [Big Grin] ). Other than that we both moderate at www.techiwarehouse.com

We get on just fine! Never have had any problems whatsoever.

I think part of the reason is I seem to attract enquiries from "sporty" related businesses, a film production company is an exception to that.

He seems to get the "health/religious" kinds of enquiries. I guess it all comes down to the history of it, www.bgcc.org.au was the first site I did. I think his first site was the church he is a member of - but I'm not sure. I should ask him!

Yes. Deep down we want to do better than each other, but you know what they say "keep your friends close and your enemies even closer".

I play this crazy sport called Canoe Polo actually. Before that I did Snorkelling, and before that Gymnastics, and softball.

Now I've moved on to a better sport. Although I'm lazy now. Pacman. It's cool, you get to go around eating and running at the same time...pacman totally turns me on.

I might add there is a 4 year age gap between me and a certain someone else! Hormones do not come into it at all!

Has anyone here actually eaten Spam? I just would never eat anything that came covered in so much jelly... unless it was wearing a bikini.

Actually, my wife loves the stuff. I think it smells, looks, and tastes worse than cheap generic dog food. It's a cultural thing, I guess, since Spam was brought to Okinawa by the GI's, and it was all some people could get to eat. So now it's still a popular grocery store item, and commercials abound on TV.

To be honest I've never eaten it before. Why does life have to be so confusing!

Did you mean Jelly or Jam? I'm Australian and assuming your jelly is our jam, or our jam is your jelly and no wait they are the same and...ouch my head hurts.

Here goes. Gelatine = our jelly.
Jam = jam! That's the way it ough to be!

Right?

To clarify:
UK jam = US jelly
UK jelly = US jello
UK marmalade = marmalade. Thats what it's called, thats what it is and if you don't like it, then you can make up a new word for it as long as you stop calling your language english.

Spungo is across the pond from me so his jam and jelly are probably the same as yours. Though I'm not sure SPAM would be ruined by grape jam on it any more than it already is with that cloudy aspic.

I rather like the stuff, if cooked properly of course. And as for the birthday thing, I like the idea and would be more than happy to be the first as my B-Day is today [Big Grin] .
