For Sale: Fable 3 & FIFA 11 Xbox

Posted by on Jan 11, 2011 in Cape Town, Gaming, My life | 0 comments

So for Xmas I acquired FIFA 11 and Fable 3 for the Xbox. The problem is that I don’t want either of these games and have therefore decided to sell them both on. They are both brand new and still in the plastic and therefore have never been opened or used.

I am asking for R400 for Fable 3, and R300 for FIFA 11.

Fable 3 is currently going for R600 new and FIFA 11 goes for R450, so I feel both of these are good prices!

Rhino Poaching Drawing on Kloof Street

Posted by on Sep 24, 2010 in Cape Town | 1 comment

So recently in the news you might have noticed that a few Rhino poachers were arrested. I have no followed the story very closely but still feel that it is important that they are brought to justice. As I was walking to my car along Kloof Street in town on Wednesday evening, this was at the entrance to the Lifestyle centre and really took hold of me. Take a peak:

What do you guys think? It was getting a lot of attention from those walking past and was still there on Thursday evening when I walked past again. I want your opinions people!

Day 2 at ROI Media

Posted by on Aug 3, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

So I decided that I would give you a quick run down of what happened during my second day at ROI Media.

The traffic was horrible this morning, but I *just* managed to make it in on time and got going straight away. I didn’t even have time to check any emails or my iGoogle and I was called into a meeting with the Sales team.┬áThe meeting was just an introduction into what the sales team does and how they do it. It was very short and sweat, but still really valuable.

There was not too much excitement throughtout the rest of the morning as I had a few things that I needed to tackle myself in an attempt to learn and grow my knowledge. I got things done, did a bit of research and just generally got on with things.

The big surprise of the day actually popped up during lunch time. A Counter-Strike server popped up, and the next thing I knew, most of the office, including the Big Boys, were playing! I actually couldn’t believe it! CS has to be my favourite games of all time, and the fact that a game popped up without me being instrumental was awesome! Also the fact that the bosses were jamming along was even cooler, and you could hear the laughter and screams of anguish coming from their offices throughout the game!

Unfortunately for me, I was a bit more disciplined than I had expected and finished a few personal things that I had planned to do during my lunch break, and I actually got them done, so I was feeling pretty chuffed, but also a bit bummed out as I had missed the game! Don’t worry boys, I will be in the action tomorrow, and you all better be prepared!

New Junior Online Marketer at ROI Media

New Junior Online Marketer at ROI Media

I understand that I have not blogged in ages while my hosting and website issues were sorted out, and you might be wondered what this post is about after reading the title.

Allow me to fill you in.

As you are well aware, that while my blog might have been down, life keeps on going. While I was not posting, I had decided that I needed a change from Tamar. I loved every minute there, but I wanted to expand my horizon and see if I could start climbing the proverbial ladder of the working world.

Interview at ROI

Well doing my standard reading on the industry and trying to learn as much as possible in my free time. I came across the ROI Media website. I had come across it a number of times and read all of the blog posts, but once again I found myself searching through it once more.

I found the free website health check contact form and thought I would give it a go. There was nothing I could lose from it right? Nothing to lose definitely, but it appeared everything to gain!

They got back to me asking what I would like to be checked out, and I didn’t understand their response. I thought that I had read the website wrong, so went back trying to find the page again, and stumbled across the jobs page while doing so. I emailed Sebastian back providing him with the info he needed, and I also dropped in a slightly sneaky question, and politely asked him who would be the best person to send my CV to at ROI Media.

The Captain is back!

Posted by on Aug 1, 2010 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

Yes, you read that title correctly! I AM BACK!

I understand that I have failed miserably on my goal of trying to blog daily to in an attempt to try and get nominated for an SA Blog Award. My goal still stands, but I am going to make a slight change. I am not going to blog daily, but I am rather going to focus on giving you loving readers only a few articles a week, but rather posts of a high quality.

I am getting a much better response from articles that I sit down and plan along with doing a little bit of research. I rather want to give you something that is going to be of value to you rather than just passing along news that you can find anywhere.

So after my hosting issues I have finally managed to get things up and running. I will do a blog post depicting my experiences and difficulties in doing my first host transfer for all of my domains.

Also, look forward to a new domain that I will hopefully be able to release at the end of the week!

I am back, and hopefully it is with a bang! I have quite a few exciting ideas going on which I will be able to execute within the next few months, so stay tuned!

Until then, Dans Dans Dans
