Vending Machines - Spent the majority of Saturday at UCC working on our Snack and Coke Vending machines. The Snack machine now has a RJ-45 socket on the back so we can speak serial to it's controller board with our custom ROM built by Bernard. (I built an evil simulator of the ROM UI in PyGTK to help people develop the server software for it). The Coke machine is now clean inside from many years of exploded coke can gunge and is now riced up with two new 12v fans so it actually cools drinks now. Hopefully Cameron will post the photos of the day soon.

Work - Politics: stuffed, Planning: crazed, Staff Development: hah!

Linux Australia - Making progress, much rantage about the GST.

Help is on it's way - Saw Farenheit 9/11 last night at the cinema. Watched it taking a critical view given the reportage that I listened to during the past few weeks, it still convinced me of it's argument. For our American listeners, do go see it even if you hate Michael Moore, be informed rather than ignorant - and ask why these arguments and accusations are even possible.

PS. Just saw JibJab. Where has all the Australian political satire disappeared to?
