Bad trend for the plog!!

Well, looking at those dates it would appear i have not blogged anything for some time, does not mean i have not htought about it tho!! :) .What has happened in the last month of any real significance???

not a great deal i am thinking, however a few memorable notes to reflect on …..

second solo flight after a substantial amount of aircraft downtime, surprise, surprise!! second solo flight consisted on 4-5 ccts with the instructor on the saturday morning, it was quite busy which resulted in a number of go-rounds, good for practice. I then proceeded to do 3 solo ccts which all went sweet. Lucky i got a keen instructor who keeps pushing me to keep flying….then again i am just an hours slut!! :)

third solo flight, what a gem, scared absolutely shitless but is was fun , no major f*** ups which is always good!! even had a runway change in there!

fourth solo flight…had major head-ache..was tired..first few ccts went well..greased them in….last few were terrible, cross-wind had come up and i was struggling, bounced the last few in…must practice cross-wind technique…

will be heading out the training area for training area training..too many trainings in there!! should be fun..better than flying round in cirlces all day!!

newsworthy item – a duchess came down during the week, it appears the pilots are ok. They were doing a engine failure approach….one engine fully feathered, for some reason unknown to myself the tower initiated a go-round, of course the poor ol’ duchess cant do anything with an engine out! It would be nice to know the facts..will have to wait until the ATSB report comes out.

Spent the weekend of the 23rd up at mums in the lovely countryside, always a nice drive up there…just as long as u dont have to do it too much!!!

Work is exciting as ever, CASA212 is bleeding off, thank f***….no got crazy pod shit….never thought i would be doing this kinda work when i graduated.

Had my review last week, was ok, got payrise and all…still think i am seriously under paided. key points for this month are….do work to hard…its not worth it!! have a life and be fit and healthy…this is more important than a career.

Another item of interest!! had the phone disconnected for about 6 weeks…what a blessing!!! shoulda paided the bill i suppose tho!!..oh well the 60 buck connection fee is heaps less than what it woulda cost to have it on with this household. Speaking of rippoffs…bloody parking fines….fined for parking nose to kerb instead of ass to kerb…the worst part…i went back to the car to put the snorkelling gear in the boot and the parking inspector was two cars away giving some other poor prick a fine….they could have a least said something…lousy f***s

This weekend has been interesting…mums been down, sisters have come out to play…makes for one very stressful visit!!! nonetheleess life will go on..

hopefully the next plog will be sooner rather than later….

Linux….big plans!!!

*did u know u can burn ur knoppix cd onto the hardrive and use it like a real distro….that is so awesome…

*Ultimate Bootbisk 3.0 – excellent live cd….has all the great tools for system rescue and admin, but also has a neat live cd bit call INSERT, which is based on knoppix and used fluxbox as the window manager…very very cool….

* mail server is getting a few steps closer….really need some guidance tho..gotta hit patrick up!!!
