Derek and Belinda held their engagement party this weekend in Newcastle. DB actually had to book the venue BEFORE he popped the question to Belinda - thanks to all the Christmas parties that seem to happen at this time of year.
DB, for those who won't know, does breakfast radio on NXFM in Newcastle. Damo will be best man, and was MC for the night. Steve gave a speech and Jackie O also turned up (DB used to be her producer at 2DAY FM).
I was sitting in my office yesterday afternoon when one of my cow-orkers comes rushing in asking if I had a pair of binoculars. He'd probably seen the box that's been sitting on my bench for the last week - I bought them to go to Western Plains Zoo.
Apparently there was a woman sunbathing in the nude on a nearby rooftop. Bad luck for the cow-orker, as I didn't have either my camera or my binocs at work.
The new printer was delviered yesterday, and after unpacking it I discovered it was damaged - the LCD screen was cracked, and the side panel was broken.
Kyocera say they will be here tomorrow with a new printer.
Early this morning I, along with several hundred other people, gathered at the tip of Mrs Macquaries Point on Sydney harbour to get a look at the new Airbus A380 whalejet. F-WWOW is in town to help Qantas celebrate its 85th birthday, after leaving Singapore it headed to Brisbane to be decked out in Qantas logos and then flew to Sydney for a photo shoot over Sydney harbour.
I'm not a huge fan of Airbus aircraft, however I liked the A380 more than I thought I would. It was really bloody quiet for starters, and the big forehead wasn't as bad as I expected.

The boss brought his sister-in-law's computer in for me to fix today. It's a fairly new HP Pentium4 2.6GHz.
Looks like somebody knocked the monitor plug a bit too hard, and broke it off the motherboard.
MicroATX motherboard, no AGP slot.. well look on the bright side - I've finally found a use for that old 2meg S3 Trio64 PCI card I've had sitting in a box for the last 7 years.
Yes, I finally got around to putting up the logo that Neolokie designed.
