Pieces and Bits

The Friday Five seems to be on permanent holiday. I think they've had about one new one in the past six weeks. Surely it can't be that hard to post five questions, especially when people send them to you!

I got my Jason fix at lunch in the oddest of places today - in the children's section of a book store. They had a photo story book of Peter Pan. I was sorely tempted to buy it, it was only $10, but most of the photos are on the internet anyway. Maybe next week.

Dropped into the new Bunnings up the road this arvo with Luc. We spent the better part of an hour wandering around the place. It's massive! About four times the size of the old one. They even had fairy floss (I haven't had fresh fairy floss in years!), clowns, musicians, face painting, and fireworks (although I only heard those from the comfort of my home, I didn't stick around to watch them). Luc left with a trolley full of stuff, I left covered in sugar :)

Finally decided, after malicious code was released for MS04-011, that I shouldn't wait til tomorrow to patch the last remaining NT4 server. So I'm sitting here waiting for people to stop working, and they *won't*. It's Friday night people! Go home!! In the end I just waited until there was a minimum of five minutes idle time all round, and rebooted anyway.

And in other news. The Moreton Bay Fig tree has had its execution date set. Next Thursday. Going to take the opportunity this weekend to finish photographing it, and collecting as many seeds as possible in the hopes of growing some. Although not quite sure what I'll do with them if they grow.. what does one do with Moreton Bay Fig tree seedlings?

I having trouble with your Australian. I know that when you say "fairy floss" it means cotton candy, but what is Bunnings? Obviously a store, and I'm guessing based on leaving with a trolley (we call them carts if they're flat, buggies if they're baskets, and both have wheels) that it's either bulk-size household goods like laundry soap and canned tomatoes, or either it's like Home Depot where you buy your own sink to install. So what's correct?

Bunnings is a big hardware store chain. Used to be called Hardware House here. Dunno what the US equivalent would be.
