Short before the weekend
Published Friday December 2, 2005 · Permalink
A few quickies before the weekend:
- Voyage to the centre of Tasmania: Last week I had my last field trip with my current employer. The destination was Tarraleah (Latitude 42º 18’ S, Longitude 146º 26’ E), which is around 50km away from the geographic centre of Tasmania (Latitude 42° 01’ 17” S, 146° 35’ 36” E).
- Got my new Mac mini (with superdrive, apple keyboard, mighty mouse and 1GB RAM), so I will be setting it up and installing some software on it during the weekend.
- I had to endure a long sales pitch over the phone just to cancel one of my credit cards. Are you sure? Would you cancel it if we throw in 2,000 reward points? etc. What a pain in the back!
- Quote of the week:
I am an old man and have a great many troubles, but most of them never happened—Mark Twain.
