LEGO Digital Designer

Now you can design your own LEGO using the LEGO Digital Designer software (Windows and Mac OS X) from LEGO! You can make up stuff with all the bricks and other weird pieces that they have in their catalogue... then check the price for the pieces required online, then even purchase it and build it in real life!

the ultimate cup of coffee

seems that you can get a cup of Kopi Luwak near Townsville. I wonder if I'll ever get to try a cup, and if it will spoil coffee forever for me. That is the only place in Oz you can get such a cup, apparently.

My Indulgent Cup of Coffee

... my brother in law took me to the Heritage Tea Rooms in the beautiful Hervey's Ranges thirty minutes drive from Townsville. The owners of this establishment Allan and Michelle Sharpe sell a unique cup of coffee. It comes from the feces of Indonesian civet cats.

Free CBD WiFi

Being in the city on Saturday for deployment support, I decided to bring in my laptop for some Mame gaming action. As soon as I opened the laptop, I was asked if I wanted to join the free wifi network "ResourcesNet".

Looks like the resource boom is behind this.
ResourcesNET is funded by the resources industry of Western Australia through the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia Incorporated, and the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association Ltd, as support for making Perth a more attractive, creative and inspiring city in which to live, work and recreate.

Not that any of you guys are in the city at the moment, but I hope this proves helpful in the future.

on a roll now ...

What did one snowman say to the other snowman?

"do you smell carrots?"

a joke to make you smile.

I was in my car, and I was driving along, and my boss rang up, and he said 'You've been promoted.' And I swerved. And then he rang up a second time and said "You've been promoted again.' And I swerved again. He rang up a third time and said 'You're managing director.' And I went into a tree. And a policeman came up and said 'What happened to you?' And I said 'I careered off the road.

so hopefully as Nicko checked with Safari for me, it would've rendered just dandy.
