Boyd Chan

My name is Boyd and I’m an IT Solution Designer specialising in operational data gathering, transformation, analysis and reporting. I am currently undertaking my Masters of Science through the University of New South Wales @ The Australia Defence Force Academy (UNSW@ADFA). I hope to conclude this degree at the end of 2012 and potentially move on to a doctorate soon afterwards. I am also part of an online community known as the Panasonic Insider Crew in the capacity of “Insider Guru” for Panasonic Australia where I interact with other tech enthusiasts and find out more about Panasonic's latest gadgets. I love technology, gadgets and the Internet and maintain a keen interest in these areas locally, nationally and globally. I hope by sharing my views on these topics that people will receive an honest point of view from someone external to the media and genuinely interested in the issues. I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I love writing it!

Now, just because I find it …

You may or may not have heard about (or seen) the new Apple iPad but if you are interested, check out the keynote and promo video. Some have described it as “an iPhone on steroids” whilst others have focused on the missing features (although I’d argue point twelve in that article as the iPad does …

Web Hosts Ain’t Web Hosts

Over the last few months, I became disappointed with my web host, Lunarpages. I’ve been with them for just under six years so this was by no means a “fly by night” arrangement. As someone who lives, breathes and works in IT, I know it would be a perfect world if everything ran at 100% …

Resuming normal blogging…

I’ve decided to go back to my blog as Facebook is nice for short things but my stuff gets lost in the sea of CafeTown achievements, FarmTown gifts and Bejewled high scores. I’d like to have a dedicated spot for my meaningful reflections, thoughts and reviews/ I’ll fiddle around with this blog (now hosted on …
