Case Law in the Office
Date Created: November 28, 2012  Date Modified: November 28, 2012

I never really expected that my first day at a new agency would give me some time to look into case law–but going through the induction documents (which are a requirement for all government agencies staff to read and understand) I came accross a number of case citations that I thought worth jotting down on some note paper and then researching further when Im back into study mode.

Im trying to write these from my own notes so expect errors in the citations, at a later date I will amend these to be correct–or close enough to it

  • A v K Limited & Z [2008] VCAT
  • Dee v Commissioner of Police et al. [2004] NSWADT 168
  • Fatialofa V Coles Group [2008] AIR 1127
  • Perera v Commissioner CC [2007] NSWADT
  • Walsh v St Vincent De Paul (No. 2) [2008]QADT 32
  • Virgin Blue v Hooper [2007] QSC 075

I will add some abstract on each case, when I get the chance, it seems Im living 3 lives at the moment… and one of those lives just finished his first semester of law and wants to par-tee; even tho I have not had a beer since last Friday’s shinannigans…

Joomla! as an intranet?: YES WE CAN!
Date Created: October 24, 2011  Date Modified: November 22, 2011

I was approached a few weeks ago by the Equal Opportunity Commission to build a Joomla powered Intranet–at first I had apprehensions: Joomla is not the greatest of CMS software for this application, and all government departments are running MOSS2010, so It would be simple logic to go with SharePoint for the intranet too?

Adding to the complexity of this project it was also suggested that the Joomla run on a WAMP stack–but with the server being SBS2003 I decided to put it together thru IIS instead of go and install Apache on a system that didnt require it.

The system installed without a hitch–its not the first time I have put together a J! on IIS, but its the first time I did so for an intranet. Hopefully this makes business run a bit smother down there at EOC.
