• The Forever war - update

    Slow to start into this one but 40% of the way through it really picked up for me and finished it off in a few days.
  • Domain transfer woes

    So one of my domains, my main business domain vayu.com.au has been hosted with Crazy domains for the past number of years. I had been waiting for Route 53 to support AU domains and decided the week before it was due to expire was a good time to do so. Big mistake.

    The Sparrow: A Novel by Mary Doria Russell So the synopsis I gave earlier in a previous blog post really doesn’t do this book justice. I really quite enjoyed aspects of this read, it wasn’t a slog by any means but there were points in the book where I had to do a double take, track back a chapter or two and realise that a single phrasing changed the entire storyline having missed it previously. Having been taught by a few Jesuits in my time and spent a lot of time around Jesuits I was quite interested in much of the scientific aspects of the Jesuit approach to faith. Definitely on my recommendation list.

    Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou Pretty great story about how a sociopath builds a biotech business, with the aid of her reality distortion field and buckets loads of cash dupes a lot of VCs and old retail giants in the process. Siemens did pretty well out of it though, Theranos was one of their biggest customers building an illusion on top of Siemens technology. Was a great read, the story is still on going with court cases and movies coming out. This yarn isn’t over by a long stretch.
