Lemony Snicket

In case you don't already know (for some reason), the latest Lemony Snicket "A Series of Unfortunate Events" book came out this week. We were hoping this one would bring closure to a number of matters, but now that I have it in my posession I see that it is called "The Penultimate Peril."

Mad as...

After several weeks wait I finally got my Tilley hat today. Why a Tilley hat? Apart from being an excellent hat they come in sizes appropriate for large-brained people such as myself.

It seems that someone from AIC Magnetics in Hong Kong has seen my fridge magnet collection web page. I think they misunderstood, and sent me an e-mail asking me if I want to buy some flexible magnetic sheet.

After reading about TV-B-Gone (a small keychain device that claims to be able to turn off virtually any TV) I decided I needed something like that. There are many situations where I find there is a TV blaring at me that noone can do anything about. Unfortunately TV-B-Gone is not yet available in Australia. It was only the other day that it ocurred to me that my HP iPAQ 2210 has a remote control application (Nevo) in it. I got to wondering if I could use it in this type of situation. Anyway, the annoying (and loud) TV in the baby change room at my local Westfield is Samsung #26 in Nevo, and it works nicely.

Yesterday I was permitted to use the dishwasher in our kitchen for the 3rd time in the last 3 1/2 years. I thought that rated a post.
