Since the start of the year, I've been working on several projects. One of those projects is currently sitting on the back of a boat, due to dock in Melbourne on Friday! In fact, it's on this boat, the Safmarine Meru:


According to the Customs agent, I should take delivery in about a week's time. So, what's in the box?

Chartbusting 80s - 7th Aug. 2003For about 12 years, up until a few years ago I was working as a volunteer in the RMIT TV Studio. Working as a member of RMITV with programs going to air on Melbourne's Channel 31.

During my time there I took a few photos and have just started uploading them to my Flickr page. I've uploaded a little more than 700 photos so far and can be viewed HERE

I have quite a few more to upload and will do that over time - I think in total there's about 4,000 photos!

Towards the end of 2002, the Victorian State Government began work to replace the current public transport ticket with a new "Smart" ticket... 8 years later and at a cost of $1.4bn, we get MYKI.

This wonderful new ticketing system will allow seamless ticketing between trains, busses and trams... Or, that's what it's supposed to do. Right now, after all the fanfare of the launch, it only works on trains - so if you catch a bus or a tram, you're out of luck and must continue to use the existing tickets.

However, that's not such a bad thing! Reports are coming in of commuters being over-charged, cards not working at barriers and machines that are simply out-of-order - why does this not surprise me?!

During January, the Transport Ticketing Authority, the department responsible for running this wonderful system, is offering free MYKI passes to anyone who registers online.

So I took up that offer...

Melbourne Open House 2009 Print E-mail

Just by chance, I discovered that the Melbourne Open House 2009 was being held on July 19th. 32 buildings in and around the Melbourne CBD were being opened up for the public to view. I was lucky enough to be able to visit and photograph two great buildings - the Melbourne Town Hall and the Capitol Theatre.

I would have loved to visit some of the other buildings - Especially the Russell Place Substation, however the wait in queue to see it was over 4 hours and I didn't want to wait that long. I'll try to get there early next year :) More photos can be found on Flickr.

ISS Turns 10 Print E-mail
Wednesday, 19 November 2008 22:09
ImageIn November of 1998, a Russian Proton rocket settled into orbit and deposited the first module of the International Space Station, the Zarya Functional Cargo Block, in space. Two weeks later, The United States added the Unity 'node' module. The image on the left shows both units joined.

In the 10 years since construction began, 14 other countries have contributed including Japan, Canada, Brazil and eleven nations belonging to the European Space Agency.

The tragic destruction of the space shuttle Columbia in 2003 as it attempted to re-enter Earth's atmosphere delayed work on the ISS for two years.

As at June 2008 (image below), the ISS weighs a little over 300,000kg and has a living volume of 350m3

The ISS currently houses has a crew of 3 for around 6 months, but with renovations taking place this month, will virtually double the crew capacity.

I have just received my 'Core' laser by Wicked Lasers .  Purchased though for a very reasonable price, I am very impressed!  It's very green and very cool!

Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph,
and sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,
come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine! 
Good bye Syd, you will be missed.
