    Eee vs Muramasa

    The other day I took a look at the much hyped Asus Eee 4G, recently released in Australia through Myer. I was interested in how well it compared to my Sharp Muramasa CV50F mini-notebook PC (more information). I bought the Muramasa second hand in Japan and it's now out of production. However, it's proved to […]

    Scattered mail

    Bit angry tonight. Came back home to find some of our mail scattered on the ground for the second night in a row. It looks like somebody is messing with out letterbox. Identity or cash thieves?

The staff are genuine Malaysians – you can tell by their […]

    Wolli Creek

    For part of our journey to work the train line follows the path of Wolli Creek. The creek begins somewhere near the rather dreary suburb of Narwee, where I once worked in the post office. It is but a concrete lined stormwater canal, running besides the M5 East motorway, behind playing fields and factories, then […]
