about a year and a half ago a few friends and i had a bit of an ‘email war’ about the price of petrol. this was all started by one of those ‘boycot [insert scumbag oil company name here] and they will have to drop the price’ emails..i put forward the opinion that i think the petrol price should go up much much more.. because that would make people think twice about uneconomical cars and start considering public transport.. (plus it would free up the freeway so i can get to work on time one of my friends.. let’s call him ‘craig’ then did some handy work with photoshop and came up with this image that he send to about 6 of us –> we all had a laugh and that was that. to my surprise i since have received the same image in one of those emails with ‘funny’ pictures twice. first about half a year ago where i could trace the original coming from new zealand.. and just two days ago i got another one with even more images attached to it… be carefull with what you send out there.. it may come back.. tom
adam curry is in irak for a week long broadcast of his morning radio show and blogs his impressions and photo's.. have a look at the photo-link at the end of the article.. it gives you a completely different view of what is going on over there. operation iraqi sunrise day 2. A completely amazing experience is the best way to describe our second day at Camp Smitty in As Samawah, Iraq. Of course I'm going to give it a try anyway The day started with very little sleep. No one got to hit the sleeping bags before 3am since there was plenty to do in order to set up our 'infrastructure'. I'm planning a separate post about all the technology, since it *is* some pretty advanced stuff which enables us to broadcast live to the netherlands, VoIP with 4 phonelines which provide a local dutch dialtone and ofcourse broadband internet access. We also shoot a daily video report to the bird for dutch television, all on the same dish. ……. Although I've written a thousand, pictures still can beat words, so I've uploaded another batch of pictures with comments of the day's journey. Now it's off to the showers and the sleeping bag, another show tomorrow morning followed by another trip outside the base. Wednesday btw, we'll be visiting the US troops in Tallil which should be fun. [Adam Curry: Dutch Curry]

a nice and warm 41 celcius in melbourne at the moment.. pretty good weather for a surf so we went for one at woolamai on philip island this morning. very nice 6 foot sets with very clean waves. after that had something to eat at the kiosk and looked at kilkunda (just past the island) and that looked good as well, so we went out again and had a second surf for the day.. still not enough to make up for the last 2 months..but its getting there the expected overnight low is 30 celcius…. it’s summer alright..
