Begun in 2008, it's unlikely that I'll regularly make entries to this blog, so do check my main site at

This blog is more likely to include posts of a political nature - and one that requires sisu on the part of many!

Archives dated prior to March 2008 are entries moved across from either LiveJournal or Octant.

[ps – a note on the slang used in the title: “she’s apples” is an Australian colloquial expression for “it’s fine/it’s good/it’s approved”. I’ll leave the purposeful reference to Apple Macs in the ambiguity thereof]
