Friday Funny: Best Marriage Proposal

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThere have been some amazing marriage proposals posted via social media and YouTube over the last few years, but this has got to be one of the coolest one yet.

Maybe that’s just because it is from an Australian guy ….

Watch below to see Liam Cooper’s proposal to his long time girlfriend, Amy Smith:

Friday Funny: Email in Real Life

David Meego - Click for blog homepageLast year I posted on my previous blog a funny video article which rang true for me. Well now there is a sequel video which warrants a revisit of the video series.

As someone who has worked in the IT industry for many years with a significant amount of the recent years with a reasonable large corporation that you might have heard of, the videos from Tripp and Tyler are “spot on”.

See both videos below:

#StarWarsDay: Star Trek’s Tim Russ Explains Star Wars Day

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFollowing on from yesterday’s post, #StarWarsDay: Star Wars Day 2015, I came across this video that was too good not to share.

This is for those of you who are not “into” Star Wars. Star Trek: Voyager’s Tim Russ explains everything you wanted to know about The Star Wars and the power of The Fourth.

Tim Russ is best know for playing the Vulcan Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on the Star Trek: Voyager series and he answers all your questions in the video below:

May The Fourth Be With You! …. Happy Birthday The Star Wars.

David

PS: Maybe this is part of the “Revenge of the Fifth”…. who knows….

#StarWarsDay: Star Wars Day 2015

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhat did Luke Skywalker say to his friends on midnight of May the third?

“May the Fourth be with you!”

Yes, corny jokes aside, it is 04-May-2015 and the geeks and nerds of the world are uniting for Star Wars Day 2015.

This has become a day to celebrate all things Star Wars related and help hype the new movies coming and sell more Star Wars toys and paraphernalia. I am sure that makes George Lucas (and now Disney) quite happy.

StarWarsDay

Now to help you celebrate the day I wanted to combine a number of really geeky things together to amuse you.

Have you heard for Simon Jansen from New Zealand? Maybe not, but you might have come across his project. Started in July 1997 still ongoing (last updated in January 2015), he has be recreating the original Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope) movie using text characters. Using ASCII characters his animation, ASCIIMATION now covers about 80% of the movie. You might ask Why? According to his FAQ, “Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.“.

Sten Spans, a Dutch Unix engineer, took Simon’s work and made it available from his Telnet server. Some people believed that this was an “Easter Egg” hidden in the command line of Windows, but it isn’t. It can be accessed from any device or operating system that has a Telnet client installed.

Note: You might need to go to Control Panel >> Programs and Features >> Turn Windows Features on and off and select the Telnet Client, then click OK to install Telnet on Windows.

Finally, there is Minecraft. Now owned by Microsoft, Minecraft is a another world wide phenomenon loved by geeks, nerds and children around the world. So, I present the following video for your pleasure:

Starwars ASCII (via Minecraft) (direct link)

 

Just in case you don’t like the silent treatment, here is a version which has had dialogue and music added:

Star Wars Asciimation With Sound (direct link)

Enjoy today, but be careful tomorrow as you could get caught up in the “Revenge of the Fifth”.

PS: Did you see the surprise in the first video at 13:59?

ANZAC Day 2015

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday (25-April-2015) is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.

On 25th April 1915, Australian and New Zealand forces landed at Gallipoli, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders. What was meant to be a quick decisive attack ended up as a eight month stalemate with the eventual withdrawal of the allied forces. The campaign was a failure with the most successful part being the evacuation without loss of life.

If you have some time to spare, watch Peter Weir’s masterpiece, Gallipoli, with a very young Mel Gibson. If you haven’t seen it, it will help explain what is meant by the ANZAC spirit and Mateship:

Gallipoli Full Movie (1981) (direct link)

 

I know the following video is not about the First World War, but it is about Australian soldiers involved on combat and how it affects them. I get emotional every time I listen to this song:

Redgum – I Was Only 19 (1983) (direct link)

Lest we forget.
