off again


on January 31, 2005

Off to Sydney again in about 4 hours!  It seems like only yesterday that I was away in Shanghai but it was 6 months ago!  I’m away for the whole week so updates will be pretty much non-existent I think.

I picked up an NEC 3520 DVD burner during the week and what fun I’ve had smile Max ruins all his DVD’s by taking them out of the DVD player and just dropping them on the floor sometimes.  It’s not the dropping that damages them but the fact that we have wooden floors in the family room and if any grit gets underneath the DVD they just get scratched to hell!  In comes my new DVD burner, a software product called DVD-X-COPY, a DVD-R disk and 15 minutes later I have a full working copy of the DVD.  I think this is going to be a real money saver as Max has already ruined two DVD’s and at 30-40 bucks a piece it will have paid for the DVD burner in about 5 non-knackered movies!

In mt last entry I showed some cynicism toward the 5 day forecast and my mother berated me for it when the next two days were stunning weather smile Although it hasn’t rained the weather hasn’t quite been up to the high promise given by the MetService 🙁 Today has dawned a beauty though and it’s a shame I’m flying out but here’s a picture of Max taking advantage of the weather in a little paddling pool that hasn’t got as much use as we were hoping.


Have a good week everyone smile
