Today sucked.

More specifically, this afternoon sucked.

This morning was ok. Luc brought me a Blackberry 8800 to have a play with, so play I did. Ok so mainly I wanted to test out the GPS feature, which works beautifully with Google Maps - the Blackberry maps built into it are *crap*. So that was all very nice, but decided I should probably go back to my Blackberry for the night. Except it all went to pot. All the BES stuff worked *except* receiving mail. No matter what I did I could send mail and use all the GPRS stuff, just not receive mail. And not only that, but it completely screwed up my profiles, giving me a couple of extra profiles - _default_profile_ and a "blank" profile that can't be renamed or deleted. No idea how I'm going to fix those :(

But it was getting late and had to get to the post office. To return something to Ted's Camera House. But that is a rant for another day.

But there was one amusing thing that went round this arvo. Australian readers should get it, but sorry, overseas people, well, won't. :)

To keep the rabbits out

Didn't the Aussies build a fence that cuts across the continent to keep something confined to one side.

Dingos? Rabbits? John Howard?

That sounds like it would be a rather long fence.

I could be so terribly wrong here, but the thing that you are trying to keep confined was not native to Australia. Maybe it was imported to take care of a problem (out-of-control wild carrots) and then became a problem itself.

As always, I may be way off the mark.

hehe, yes we did build a rabbit-proof fence most of the way across the country. But this referred to an advert that's been on tv here. The link I put in the post has a YouTube version of it.
