Oil

When I was young, I thought I had very oily hair. As it turns out, I kept running my hands through my hair trying to get it to stay in place, and oil was transferred from my hands to my hair. It's amazing how many years can go by without noticing the causes of these types of things.

An embarrassing amount of time went by from this revelation to discovering that the reason my face got oily was also because I kept touching it. Fast forward yet more years and I eventually realized my hands actually did get dirty during the day and I started washing them more frequently!

Minimum Wage

I grew up in New Zealand, which as it turns out, is a very socialist country. Not knowing the difference between the way I grew up and any other ideology, I moved to the USA, which is not so socialist.

House Hunting Love Bird Style

I have a little Love Bird called Sydney, and she used to have a mate called BB. They were very close, hooked up and laid a bunch of eggs. We suspect they were both females due to the number of eggs (which also never hatched) but it didn't stop them from otherwise acting like a couple. It was pretty cute.

BB died unexpectedly and for a while Sydney lived alone. She seemed OK, but I decided to get her another partner, so brought another young Love Bird from the local pet store.

Rsnapshot

I have been wanting an easy to use snap-shot system for backups for a while. Previously I've used DOS batch files to hack together a sort of snap-shot system on Windows and RAR to do something similar on Linux, but it was messy.

Rsync has various options for accomplishing this, but with my busy work load (and/or limited brain power), I could never be bothered getting it to work right.

Unwanted Room-mate

Once I lived in a house with 4 other people. One of them was causing problems and a plan was hatched to get rid of him. We had the land lord make up a fake eviction notice, got a lot of boxes and pretended to pack. Once the troublesome room mate had moved out, we changed the locks.
