I am at Obi wan’s place using his late model emac with the white speaker grills so it doesn’t look as much like the front of a metro train as the earlier models.
The machines will not talk to each other so you cannot see the foto of south australia from ten kilometres up nor read my on the spot tappings of highly uncomfortable plane travel – with a runny nose, no sleep and not being able to get to the toilet for five hours.
However, it did not tear apart nor explode in a brilliant fireball upon landing and for these things I am grateful.
I would also like to say that Victorian summertime rocks. Fresh, unhumid but warm air, fluffy clouds and blue skies. Melbourne is a beautiful city and I’m not sure how many of its residents realise this.
The darkness of the country night, the stars, the milky way, Orion — are awesome.
