Software bug that's a killer

We all know that buggy software is a pain (Windows 3.1 anyone??) but what if your SCUBA computer had a bug that could kill you?!

This article lifted from Slashdot A wrist computer that tracks and calculates safe diving times and limits for SCUBA divers had a dangerous software bug that may have been covered up by company executives. This SF Chronicle article details the product and the problem with it. According to the Chron article, company execs tried to cover up and deny the problem for years, but their company website makes it look like they did a voluntary recall.

Greeks on the Roof - what the??

Back to the latest "info-tainment" drivel..... Channel 7 have recruited a great commedian "Effie", to host this show which was a good choice but to basically take a 99.9% "The Kumars" rip-off, make it Greek, screen it at the same time and not even trying to hide these seems as though they actually want this show to fail! I for one don't care much for either "The Kumars" or "Greeks on the Roof" but I needed to vent this little angst where I knew it would be published ;)

UPDATE: 26-May-2003 Seems a few people visiting this site have got this little rant all wrong. This is not a winge about our Greek-Australian friends or people with Greek origins in general. I have many friends of Greek heritage. There are more idiot full-blood Aussies than Aussies with Greek ethnicity in total! So please. Stop the e-mail with "you hate Greeks...blah, blah, blah" because I dont! This was simply an opportunity to slag off at Channel 7.

Going to Oran Park!

Yay! I'm booked and paid and going racing at Oran Park!! My best mate Chris, another old school friend, Matt, and myself are going "racing". Matt is going to bringing his MV Augusta to the track for the first time and Chris is bikeless :-/

I'll be taking my camera and posting back some photo's when they're developed. Until then, read about the ride day here. Follow the links to the "Test ride the CBR600RR" on the flash page.
