Oh, sorry if I gave you the idea the broadcast would definitely be downloadable... It's a RealAudio stream (if they haven't tarted up the site since I've visited). If you have a stream ripping program, or can record audio received to your PC, you'll be able to save a copy. But it is definitely avail...

You know, I thought he looked a little uncomfortable, and his jokes kind of fell a little flat. That's more to do with the audience than the presenter, though.

He looked rather noice, however. :)

AussieJo......When I opened the paper this morning the first page was covered with pictures of your fire. It sounds and looks really bad. Those people didn't stand a chance. I know you're not that close to the fires but please take care. They may spread and it seems they spread very fast. I've neve...

Looks like the fires were deliberately lit. Fuckers. This happens more often than not in the western U.S. And on occasion, it's the volunteer firefighters who start them just so they can get the work!! Whenever we get reports of Santa Ana winds here in Southern California, the nutjobs come out beca...

The weather down under doesn't sound at all nice right now. I don't like the sound of those fire warnings. Those I could definetly live without. Whew! Ummm.....yeah. When I posted the above yesterday morning, there were 6 dead in Victoria from bushfires. My attitude was something like, "six dead......

Aaaah but the weird thing is that this is good, IMNSHO. It's more the "normal weather patterns " we get mid-January to mid-February, although not so many 40+ days in a row. And I live near the coast, so I get the NE sea breezes. Those can cause as much as a 10C difference in temperatures between the...

Southeastern Oz has been experiencing record heatwave conditions, with temps in some places reaching 45C (115F?). Adelaide has had something like 7 days above 40C, with the nights getting down to a cool (NOT!) 32C. Sydney's been warm and humid, and we can expect the same 40+ stuff this weekend. I'm ...

Yowwwww 50 Euros is expensive! You don't have debit cards? That's where it looks like a credit card to a merchant, but you use the funds in your bank account. I have a Visa one. Or prepaid credit cards? That's where you "load money onto the card" and use it like a credit card. They're great if you o...
