imageWell, 2009 is almost 17 hours in the past, so it’s time for a quick look back at my top 5 most popular blog posts for the year.

No. 5 – Movember

I participated in Movember last year and raised over $300 for men’s health.

No. 2 – ChMS for Aussie Churches

Databases and Church Management Systems are a big deal for churches of all sizes. This was my attempt to point people in the right direction.

And finally…

No. 1 – Disappointed Samsung

I like gadgets and I’d been holding out hope that the Samsung Omnia II would be the Windows Mobile uber-phone (and iPhone beater) that, on paper, it looked like it should be. Once I got to play with one, my hopes didn’t quite match reality. This post was by far the most popular, getting twice as many hits as No. 2 and some of the comments are classic.

Thanks for reading my blog. Come back to see what happens Random-ly in 2010.


Movember 28th, 2009


DSC00285 Well, this is it folks. One of your last opportunities to make a Movember donation to support the work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue.

So far me and my mo have been able to raise $300, which I think is a pretty decent effort and I’d like to say a big thank-you to everyone who donated. How ever most of those donations came in in the first week or so. If that rate of donating had been maintained over the rest of the month I’d be heading toward a total around $800. So, how about it? If you haven’t donated yet, now is the time. It’s super easy, and credit card donations can be made online. Donations $2 and over are tax deductable.

Head over to my Mospace to donate now:

Movember 13, 2009



Look closely. That shadow under my nose… can you see it? Yup, that really is 13 days worth of mo. I went to Grill’d for my free burger yesterday and saw a number of mo bros, all of whom had better mos than I. I felt a little disheartened. What I’m not disheartened about are the donations and support I’ve got thus far. Donations are currently up to $230. If you haven’t already donated, now’s the time.

Clean shaven, so the mo can grow

Well, it’s Movember, and to help my fellow man, I’m growing a mo.

So, how does growing a mo help other people? Simple, the point of Movember is to raise funds for men’s health. To read more about it and to donate to the cause, head over to my Mo Space page and donate a bucket of money.
