In case you're wondering, BBspot has a useful list of new features in Office 2003 to help you work out if you need to upgrade.

Last night I managed to be the first person to find the geocache Hey You. A geocache that noone has found yet is called a "virgin cache", and this is the first virgin cache I have found.

The ABC is reporting that aparrently it is against the standing orders of the SA parliament to use the word "please" when asking a question. It seems that in other states MPs are free to be polite.

Another successful day's geocaching. I found The Crow and finally managed to find Tooms.

If you have seen the McDonalds Sip & Win promotion, you may have noticed that one of the instant win prizes is a $10 voucher for dstore. Although they don't seem to offer it on their site, this link will do a search for all products between $0 and $10. You probably guessed this, but the cheapest thing on their site is $10 (plus $6.95 postage).
As I was in the area last night, I was tempted to make an attempt on The Crow by Red Dwarf. Unfortunately it was getting late, and I needed to give some people a lift home. My first virgin cache will have to wait until another day.

On the weekend I tried white M&Ms. I'm generally a fan of both white "chocolate" and M&Ms, so I thought I'd enjoy them. The truth of the matter is that they are very sweet - even a bit too sweet for me. Anyway, this leads into a joke I saw today for which the punchline has now been effectively ruined:

Q: Why don't they make white M&M's?

A: Because they'd enslave the light brown M&Ms, steal all the red
M&Ms' land, hunt the blue M&Ms to extinction, accuse the
yellow M&Ms of obstructing trade, start a panic that the
little green M&Ms were invading the Earth, and complain
that the dark brown M&Ms were taking all their jobs.

An interesting article about how using multiple monitors improves your productivity. I have had a 2-monitor PC for quite some time at work now, and I strongly recommend the setup over a single monitor PC.

Just a quick update to note that I have now conquered The Bridge Walk and Evanescence.
