It's ANZAC day today (25th April) - a public holiday in which Australians and New Zealanders remember those who died in war.

I have taken the rest of the week off. I hoping to see Ju Ju Space Jazz at Newtown RSL this saturday - part of the yak secret tour.

I've gotten hold of a version of konqueror that can do https:.

I've been taking advantage of the sunny weather while it lasts. Winter will come soon, ruling out trips to the beach. I'm looking foward to going snowboarding again. I've digital camera to play with now.

I've been refreshing my memory of Java. It's tainted now by years of programming in c++. I've been noting all the differences: some things are better, some missing. I miss const and templates. I don't really miss unsigned types or explicit memory handling. I like the way you can call other constructors of the class using this(...) but miss the being able to give default arguments to methods and constructors.

Java has a much better standard library overall.

I've playing around with mysql. I created a simple table in a mysql database and have been try out various methods of accessing it using PHP and JDBC in Java.

I've been buying to many cds again : the avalanches, boards of canada, Luke Vibert.
