Adelaide International Cello Festival

Wednesday, 9 April 2008

I'm sure this will be of interest to all you .NET programmers - have you heard about the 2008 Adelaide International Cello Festival?

The main programme runs from Friday 11th - Sunday 20th April.

This is totally out of my league, but I might see if I can go and catch one or two things. Nothing like seeing experts in their field to inspire you.

Hooray for Ben

Tuesday, 8 April 2008

Looks like UniSA's loss is Flinders University's gain - Ben has accepted a position there, seeing as UniSA didn't want to hang on to him.

This is fantastic for Ben, and I'm really pleased for him - apart from being a whole lot more convenient for him to get to work!

Hill Climb 2008

Tuesday, 8 April 2008

Last month, members of the Blackwood Hills Baptist Church Bike Club had a Hill Climb race in Belair National Park.

Turns out none other than my Dad won on handicap! Check out some nice photos of the day (including a few with Dad, though they didn't manage to get one of him crossing the finish line).

Change Management Final

Friday, 4 April 2008

Yesterday, the final "Managing Change Plan" for the Flexible Learning Centre was released, as far as the areas that aren't being disputed by the NTEU.

A quick read has revealed that my position will transfer to ISTS on April 21st. I'm currently on leave until mid-May so I'm not expecting that to affect me much. There's also a review and evaluation of the whole process scheduled in 12 months time - that will make interesting reading.

One other thing I learned last week was that there's no chance of me getting a redundancy package instead of my position moving. I figured this might be the case, but when $$$s are involved you want to make sure.

Having a break has been a good thing though:

As I've said to a couple of people already, you definitely know you're on holidays when you start to lose track of what day it is!
