I took this shot of a man coming down the escalator of a seemingly empty station. It reminds me of thriller movies when, that extra the camera has been following walks into an empty public space, only to be attacked by the film’s malevolent entity.
Of course, if the extra is really the protagonist, they pull out a sword/gun, confronting the entity or making a hasty retreat. Unfortunately, this guy is not wearing a long coat, so it looks like curtains…
It’s funny, but a little worrying, when supermarkets can’t do maths correctly on their signs.
I suppose this is erring on the side of caution, saying you get 20% but giving you 33%, rather than saying you get 33% any only giving you 20%. Which makes sense from a legal perspective, giving you a bigger discount than is advertised.
Although, if a supermarket can’t get the numbers on their specials labels correct, where else are the numbers wrong?
The new fashion trend gracing windows of the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney is black & yellow. Very reminiscent of The Bride from Kill Bill. Upstairs are the dresses and tops. And downstairs, the matching shoes.
Are these clothes you would kill for? Or, do they leave you feeling jilted?
The ATO has finally released their Mac eTax software, but the computer requirement seem a little strange.
I understand having one of the last 3 Mac OS X versions (10.6, 10.7 10.8) as a requirement. But the hardware requirements seem a little strange. Have you tried running any of these 3 OSs on a Pentium?

When warning signs go up to for floor cleaning, often they are just to make you aware of the dangers of slippery floors. Where as, this one for Portal floor cleaning warns not to step too close, or you might get sucked in.

Not only do New Zealand authorities appear to have stepped outside the law to pursue people like Kim Dotcom. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, NZ Police were patrolling the Daft Punk album launch concert in Wee Waa, NSW.
According to the exert below, NZ Police had instigated an operation to ‘deal with possible drug and alcohol related violence’. But, isn’t Wee Waa a wee bit out of their jurisdiction?
What an international event. A French electronic music duo, with an album launch concert in NSW Australia, patrolled by NZ Police.
It appears the New Zealand Police have also leant on people at Fairfax. The article now read ‘NSW Police’. So I have added a PDF of the article from before the edit: Daft Punk a no-show as album ‘launched’
Photos from tonight’s ‘A Taste of Exploratory Testing‘ given by Anne-Marie Charrett down at Google in Pyrmont. In interesting talk about what exploratory testing actually is, and how you can convince management that you are not just ‘playing around’.
