I bought a new bike on Saturday. I've wanted something with a hub dynamo for a long time, and finally found one in my price range and in a style I like. It's a gorgeous piece of bike and rides amazingly. I miss the suspension fork on Sydney's roads, but it has much snappier handling than my cheap old MTB.
$1050 from the wonderful folk at Cheeky. Amazing value for integrated lighting, and came with mud guards and a very sturdy rack. Only down side is the seat isn't the most comfortable. Might swap it over for the MTB one. Apparently the price is because it's the end of this line for Breezer.
Amazing tasting menu at Bar H in Surry Hills. The pork buns were amazing and apparently on the regular menu.
But, god the delight of hunkering down in the Debian commune again. I love how relentless and unsullied they are, even by Ubuntu.
Danny O'Brien on moving from Mac to Debian. I'll also be switching from Ubuntu on my next install. Ubuntu have screwed their users far too hard. Danny's smoking crack if he thinks Gnome 3's shell isn't insane though.
And welcome back Danny. You've been missed!
It's 4th January.
GUYS, BACK ME UP HERE. TELL CAPTAIN VAMPIRE POETRY HE’D BE A LOT LESS UPTIGHT IF HE WAS ON A COUPLE TABS AND SHAKING HIS ASS.
Cathy Wilcox hits the nail on the head. Any societal good that clubs bring by spending some of the money they make from problem gambling is more than outweighed by the societal damage of problem gambling.
It's much like the very disingenuous astroturf campaign against plain packaging of tobacco products. They claimed it wouldn't work, and spend millions on a campaign to tell people this, which was a good indication they thought it might work. Ditto the gambling industry.
Marrickville, where the coppers are the best in the business...
