Gmail must be almost ready to open to the public, as I've been able to send approx 20 invites over the past week. Anyone who wants a gmail invite post a comment here.

I'm at 53% of my 1Gig limit. I suspect I'll run them out of room before the end of next year. Maybe it'll be 2gigs then!

I remember when I got my first harddrive, 32 Megs! I thought I'd never fill it up, and here I am with 360,000 Megs in my main machine alone, and I could fill it up in a week or two maybe -- that's over ten thousand times as much room as I had in my first harddrive equipped PC!!

Almost the long weekend, and nearing the end of summer :(
I didn't get to the beach as much as I would have liked this summer, like the last few summers. (Only really while up at my parents cottage). September I've dubbed my super-saver month, I've managed to run up quite the internal deficit this summer with everything, and buying lots of meat isn't cheap!

Alien signals from outerspace?

A frequency has been discovered from outerspace, by the SETI@home project, a distributed computing effort by people all over the world that run the program as a screensaver and such to filter through mounds of information looking for transmissions.

It could all be a hoax or error, and doesn't appear likely to be from other intelligent life.

I hope not, I want life to be an impossible creation that just happened to happen to us.

Arrested Development

I finished watching season one of Arrested Development last night. I quite liked it, and got fond of the characters. It's pretty funny, and I like businessy related stuff too (not that it's much about their business, except for hilarity!). Next stop... Maybe Six Feet Under?

It's Monday, this weekend is another long weekend, yay! Nothing out of the world is planned. There's a BBQ drinking bash at Scott & Amanda's. (I'll likely come off my diet, since it's the long weekend, but maybe not until Sunday or something).

Trish gave her two weeks notice on Friday to ABC Adelaide (London Bridge).
