London Day Five – The one with the magic

London Day Five – The one with the magic

The morning we started slowly, knowing that we were visiting Warner Brothers Leavesden Studio in the afternoon. This was going to be one of the big highlights for T-Rex so we wanted to save our energy for the big event. We popped into CafĂ© Nero, which is a small chain of Cafes for some panini and coffee. We headed to […]

London Day Four – The one with the eye

London Day Four – The one with the eye

T-Rex’s bag had gone the way of her coat, that is it broke. Having only used it for a week, it was pretty frustrating to say the least. Luckily, if you remember from yesterday’s post, we had accidentally stumbled upon the location of a shoe repairers. So in the morning we headed off to the Arches. The man who we […]

London Day Three – The one with the lion

London Day Three – The one with the lion

The previous day, three out of ten of T-Rex’s jacket buttons had fallen off. This was frustrating as it was the first day wearing it after purchasing it at Oxford St. I had thrown out the receipt thinking that the chances of needing it in the next 11 days was pretty slim. So we decided to try to find a […]

London Day Two – The one with the wax

London Day Two – The one with the wax

T-Rex and I awoke hungry and disoriented. Having accidentally slipped into a micro-comma the night before, food was foremost on our mind. We got ready for the day, T-Rex is addicted to checking the weather, so we were well-informed that this was going to be our first true cold London day. I thought my Pea Coat and a T-Shirt would […]

London Day Zero

London Day Zero

Anyone that has traveled with me before knows that I always get ‘randomly‘ selected at airport security for further testing. Maybe it is my bags under my eyes that makes people suspicious, I don’t know. However, when I have traveled to Melbourne with T-Rex, I somehow managed to escape scrutiny. I thought she was my lucky charm, but unfortunately the luck […]

Melbourne October 2014

To celebrate Tanya finishing her thesis, we went on a surprise trip to Melbourne. I had a sleep on the plane which caused some weird looks from our fellow passengers. We were staying at the Rydges Hotel in the city which was really nice with a great location. As we were quite hungry, we went to China Town on Little […]

C# AWS CORS Upload full example

C# AWS CORS Upload full example

AWS CORS allows your users to upload files directly to an AWS bucket securely. There are many benefits to storing files on S3 rather than on your local web server storage, such as life-cycle management, cost and allowing horizontal scaling. If you already upload users files to S3 then CORS removes the need for your website server to be the […]

AWS Sydney Summit

The CTO of Amazon Web Services delivered the keynote speech of the AWS Sydney Summit. I personally thought it was mostly a glorified sales pitch but the parts where representatives from other companies that have migrated to the cloud, like NAB bank, were quite interesting. NAB picked their public facing website, refined their dev-ops process, extensive performance and resilience testing […]

AWS Sydney Summit – Prelude

AWS Sydney Summit – Prelude

Amazon Web Services big Australian event was happening in Sydney this year and work wanted to send three of their finest to investigate and represent the team. The three included NavMan, 3rdDegree and myself. After work we hopped on an AirTrain to the airport, had a surprisingly good Parma at cafĂȘ In-Bar-Go and boarded a plane that was running only […]
