Melbourne 2006 - Online Resources
Great information can be found online about the The XVIII Commonwealth Games
Will these be the web 2.0 games???
Quiz: THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST - Take 2
I've re-took the infamous Nerd? Geek? or Dork? test, just to see if my score has changed.
Last time I took the test, I scored 56 % Nerd, 91% Geek, 56% Dork
This time, the balance has changed slightly, with an overall consistent theme:
Beware the Ides of March!
hehe - I love that saying.
For me, it's a warning about the upcoming sportsfest down in Melbourne ( which I can't bear to watch). The best comment is from John Doyle (aka Rampaging Roy Slaven) with his article, The Lost Empire - You gotta read it.

Mad for an Xbox 360
My eldest, Antony, is desperate to get his hand s on an Xbox 360.
He can't wait anymore. As far as he is concerned it should have launched on March 2nd.
So, when he heard about the contest on local radio station Nova 969 - he went crazy.
The promotion goes something like this
So, Antony is listening to this and wonder WHY would they be destroying an Xbox 360 when could be playing with it.
Turns out they aren't really cut with a chain saw, but Antony has Asperger's Syndrome;AND takes everything literally.< P> and is quite literal. He deals with the concrete and with facts, so this kind of promotion leaves him very confused.
I tell him to chill - he'll get a chance to get his in a week and a bit. Plus, he can come visit me when he wants to platJohnny Cash ]

Highest ever one day international score
Just watched the Australian innings in the deciding fifth one day international versus South Africa
The Australian team has scored the highest ever score, cracking the magical 400
The amazing scorecard looks like this....
Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, on 12 March 2006 (50-over match)
Fall of wickets

Got the AFL Record Guide to Season 2006
As I do each year, I finally got hold of the AFL Record Guide to Season 2006 (ISBN 0975796402).
The AFL Record Guide to Season 2006 is the bible of stats with information about almost everything AFL.
Each year, the book gets bigger. This edition has 16 more pages than last year, with 866 pages, but it's slimmer, due to lighter weight paper.Pretty cool.
This year, the publishers have added a new element - the ability to email corrections back to them. There's a bunch of updates already posted online
My AFL Guide sits in a "special place" in my house and it gets read every day.
Can't wait for the season to start.

Back from Seattle
My week in Seattle is over. It was good to be back there, but boy, it was COLD. Brrrrrr
I drove 200 miles during my time there, which is pretty surprising.
I bought a bunch of DVDS, some old, some new
The trip is over, I got home Sunday and I am feeling a bit tired today.[listening to: Jackson - Joaquin Phoenix; Reese Witherspoon ]
