Long time no C

Well this I haven't done in a while. What's been up...
Phakisa raceway with the kids & the Hell Razors, what a blast indeed!
Before that, bought an old Harley Davidson from a good friend. What a crazy cool bike with terrible handling and an awesome sound.

First paying website

Finally it is done, what a groovy project. GWS - Gillingham Welding Systems, my biggest website project yet.

What great clients to work for and I really appreciate them having the faith in me to complete this for them.

Great experience indeed!

Cape Town Hell Razors Party Trip 2016

What a blast! Our Cape Town chapter had their annual party this weekend and what a jol it was.  First we went to the Killarney Racetrack to watch Jason's son, Joshua, practice his carton skills.  There was regional bike racing on as well so that was great.  Then off to the part at The Snakpit in Bellville.  Awesome party indeed!

Axe gig at the Clubhouse

Axe (Louis Lourens) moved up from Cape Town and played a gig at our Clubhouse.  The best guitar player that I've ever witnessed, and a really nice guy to boot.

New Webdevs in the making

So a new journey for the Mostert kids begins... I'm a tutor now to help them learn how to make a website and hopefully start a blog by the end of their holidays.

Colby grows up

So my son went on his first hunt and bagged a springbok with his first shot with a Sako .234 from his cousin.  I'm not a big hunting fan but he's his own man and his is not my life.  I'm super proud of him, mostly for making his own decision and setting it through.

Time for a family holiday

A beautiful place nestled near Graaff Reinet in the Eastern Cape. Wheatlands country house is an absolute treat from a bygone era. The fact that it's run by cousins of my wife Bronwyn is the cherry on top.

Hell Razors member site update

It's time to update the members section of  My god, I hate looking through other people's code to find where to change certain things.  CSS is no so bad but PHP is a friggin nightmare to find which file actually created the HTML.  It's a long process but I'm writing the steps down this time (yeah I know;)

Back to basics programming

Stanford university

I'm trying to get into the app dev game as a hobby again, it was way difficult a year ago but I'm going to go back a few steps with an intro course from Stanford University (which is available for free, how nice) on Object Oriented Programming.

Come on old brain, you can do it!

Slowly they get married

Buddy Daryl comes home for a very serious batchelor party, Poovey & I make sure we give him what he deserves 😄

Number 2, from the phone. Not so easy

And now I'm trying to see if blogging cab be done by phone.  So far so good, the choosing of a pic is a bit of a pain in the ass but at least it can be done.

The beginning of talking to the damn computer

First time messing about with the blog story... Have a VAT 69 and a war series on in the background to give the correct atmosphere.  Let's see where this goes...
