Feed me

BTW for anyone who has a syndicated news reader or uses Thunderbird as their email client, this blog has an Atom feed located at http://oneabsee.blogspot.com/atom.xml . I believe by default you get update emails for any comments made on your own posts or on posts that you have commented on, but the only way to be kept informed of entirely new posts (aside from checking the website) is through this feed.

If you haven't already discovered it, try out Google personalised home, which also does RSS and Atom feed reading. You need a Google Account to sign in (I think they give them out now, but if you need an invitation let me know and I'll send some). Just click on the "Add Content" link (once you're signed in) and then enter the above URL as the Feed address.

Here endeth the nerd speak. For now.

All is hot on the Western Front

When all other avenues of conversation fail, I was always taught to rely on the weather. Seeing as how it's been a while since anyone's made a new post, I thought it may be an opportune moment to have a mild whinge about the oppressive heat that has been inflicting itself on the noble city of Tamworth and pretty much everywhere in NSW I think.

Already this year we've broken several records in Tamworth: hottest average January temperature in 25 years, hottest daily January temperature in past 10 years, and now hottest daily February temperature every recorded (since 1957). So it's all loose clothing, cold cans and water fights in old Tammy...

Driving to and from Bathurst this weekend I thought my car was going to sink into a pool of molten tar at some points. And then just to confuse me the top of the Blue Mountains is covered in fog for 80km. What the?

How is everyone else holding up? I think maybe only Julie has a claim on harsher heat conditions than here at the moment, but I may be wrong...
