Will linked me to this picture. Rolling downhill in a person sized, air cushioned hamster ball. What will those wacky Kiwis think of next?

What's new?

New work monitor!

My monitor for one :) Work decided to make their developers happy and order 17" LCD monitors for all of us who didn't have one yet. They're pretty nice, and definitely a step up from the Viewsonic that I was using before.

Last Sunday I went shooting with Mirella and her dad (my father-in-law!!!). Had a pretty good time. He let me shoot two of his 9mm pistols, a .22 caliber rifle, and a couple of other higher caliber rifles (240 and... 720?). The high caliber rifles had some monster recoil. My shoulder was sore for a couple of days afterwards. The rifles we were shooting from 50 yards. My first round of shots were way off the mark, but once I got comfortable and started getting used to it I got much closer to the mark. It was my first time shooting any kind of firearm so it was pretty fun. Not something I'm going to get into fulltime, but fun for an every-now-and-then type of thing.
