Fire!


So last night around midnight what sounded like a car alarm went off – but it was a continuous noise. It went on for a while and even had me wondering if Du Cane had a fire alarm system we were unaware of! So then again there was a noise and a bit of crashing, […]

new corporate logo


It’s nice to know that AOL Time Warner has got a sense of humour. They have just spent $250,000 on a new corporate logo that looks like it was knocked up using MS Word to make the text ‘Time Warner’ in the Times New Roman font and then made the background blue. Screen grabbed it […]

iTunes

Oh if only we had a gripe sheet too!

This is some of the ones from Quantas: Pilot: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough. Service Engineer: Auto-land not installed […]

gay marriages


Well over at Jonathan’s they are celebrating 11 happy years together. Which is sweet. Really heart warming stuff. In the meantime though religion is striking out and John Howard is making a fool of himself again. So basically the catholic church (never known for it’s ‘christian’ compassion) is saying that men and women who are […]
