It’s Nostalgic November at Hemispheric Views—a time to share anything from your past that makes you happy. On our shared blog, I’ve added a piece about one of my all-time favourite games: You Don’t Know Jack from 1995.

Share your own nostalgic item with us @HemisphericViews!

Here’s a little teaser for a small part of a very specific segment of our upcoming episode of @HemisphericViews today. (What a mouthful!) You’d be right to assume that my desk doesn’t normally look like this. 😂


Lunchtime walk!

More Halide Macro Mode shots with iPhone 12 mini

Software is amazing. I have an iPhone 12 mini (not one of the new models), but I’ve been able to achieve some interesting close-up shots with Halide’s new Macro Mode. Check it out if you’re using an earlier iPhone.

Recently over @HemisphericViews we’ve started a new playlist on our YouTube channel called ‘Virtual Tourist Corner’. @canion kicked things off with a cool video of Perth; now I’m showing off my home town of Wollongong. Check it out! 🙂 @Burk is next!

Mac lost one of his socks during our family walk today; I’m pleased to report that after retracing the entire route, I located the missing sock, thereby rescuing it from suburban wilderness. Crisis averted!

We just recorded episode 40 of @HemisphericViews—whaaa…?!—so I’m celebrating with a juicy tangelo. Keep an eye out in your feeds later this week!

A nice family walk through the Wollongong Botanic Garden

Seinfeld fans start young!

Listen to 68. On a Country Road with Andrew McLuhan on Lounge Ruminator. In this podcast episode, we discuss his poetry, ways of slowing down our digital lives and how to continue (and challenge) family tradition.

This rainbow sticker makes me very happy.

Gotcha nose!

Joining Micro Camp live with @Burk and @canion on @HemisphericViews is a highlight of my podcasting experience. Thank you, @jean and @manton, and to all who listened to ep. 035.

Now keen to catch up on videos! 🙂

Preparing for Hemispheric Views Live! from with a double-shot flat white (and a piccolo for the supportive @NTKF). Hope to see you there soon, along with @Burk and @canion!

Excuse the lack of reusable cups as I walk past Australia Post… thank you, virus!

Brick is still one of my all-time favourite games—so simple and engaging!

A cute, little garden next to Wollongong Golf Club—I love the overturned pot!

Months later, I can say unequivocally that the iPhone 12 mini is the first phone that I have ever purchased that has not disappointed me in some way or left me longing for something. Coming from an 11 Pro, the overall design, size, weight and feature set are brilliant.

Watching Rage on ABC TV with Mac! Indoctrination starts young.

Back at the Wollongong Botanic Garden, this time looking towards the Kawasaki Bridge!

A gorgeous eucalypt at the Wollongong Botanic Garden

YES! After finding the appropriate tape at Officeworks for my vintage DYMO JET 1855 MK II—with much help from @NTKF—I’ve made a label to replace the Samsung logo on my 4K display.

(I’m not against Samsung… just not a fan of the logo.)

After seeing this lovely desktop screenshot today by @Burk, I thought that I’d share my current one as well. 🖥

In episode 65 of Lounge Ruminator, my special guest @vincent shares his personal story of becoming an independent app developer, ranging from his earliest use of computers to the creation of apps like @Gluon for Have a listen! 🎙 🙂
