(clears throat noisily)

Since returning to Canberra I’ve had very little time or inclination to either blog or comment at other blogs. Hopefully this is only a temporary thing and will pass.

I’ve been fixing up the house with cat motifs, re-configuring the hi-fi and re-building my home theatre system. Van den Hul cables rock. Naim Audio amplifiers rock. My venerable CEC TL2 CD transport also rocks. Good cathode ray tube televisions (I love you, Loewe) beat the crap out of LCD and plasma. Furthermore, I am considering a significant investment in ye old turntable technology. The Rega Planar 3 threatens to seriously rock.

In other news, I have re-visited the Tidbinbilla Deep Space Tracking Centre to see if the giant 70-metre dish has yet succeeded in locating any signs of intelligence in mine enemy’s head (no luck, I’m afraid), and the National Museum of Australia, which is making good progress in rehabilitating itself as a genuine national institution instead of a circle-jerk for 70’s lefties.

  1. Wondered where you’d gone off to, Rob. Hope you won’t feel the cold after all that time in the warm NT.
