Puakma: Under the hood

I'm Brendon Upson, jack-of-all-trades, master of one or two. I'm talking about life running a small ISV tackling business issues and leaping technology hurdles in a single bound.

Sunday marked the turning of another year. 33. I remember as a kid it seemed to take forever for a year to pass. Now I just close my eyes for a few minutes and a month has rocketed by. Frightening. As you can see from the picture, one birthday gift was a chainsaw. OK, I know, there's no actual practical value for a bloke in suburbia to own a chainsaw but I have a penchant for powertools (what guy doesn't?) and firm aspirations for farming.

What better way to test out the new toy tool than to cut the birthday cake?

...and how good were the All Blacks on Saturday night's Bledisloe Cup? :-)


  1. Happy Birthday Brendon! I remember when I was 33 like 9 years ago :-)

  2. Happy Birthday! 33 - you're still young :-)
    Using a Chain Saw for cutting cake is probably messy - how did it work out for you?
    What you need is a lightsaber (look at the bottom of the page).
