Whats the worst steak you've ever had? Well, McGinty's sandton... the steak was horrible, the service worse.... the beer was good. Next time, just drink beer.

Johann + Sybrand: This is the telescope I'm getting - SkyQuest XT8. Its +- R3500, which is reasonable. I've been warned that it might not fit in my car.

Well... its been a busy 2 weeks. I've had very little sleep over the past 3 weeks and well... I'm tired. It may be the sushi I just had for lunch. The smacks of wasabi didnt manage to wake me up (its a shame how weak they're making wasabi these days).

In the last 3 weeks i've been quad biking, done a bit of paintball, watched some amazing cricket (I lost 10 cases of beer when RSA beat AUS @ 434 runs), went to watch Metallica at the Coca Cola Colab, went to a lion farm to check out a few cats, played in an MTG tourneyment, started playing GO again, pretty much been having a good time outside work. I've posted a few photos in my photo album (on the right) and I've got more to post.

The Colab was good, Metallica were great and the chap selling air guitars on the side of centurion cricket stadium - you're a life saver. (Managed to get him to run to the bottle store and buy about 6 bottles of vodka and 6 2L cokes.) Unplanned but typical - dave and I ended up bumping into Mike, Stu and Miles. This, chantelle and craig managed to get us to skip the entire queue (about a kilometer long). More photos on the way.

On a more computer related topic:
I also been thinking and i think i've come up with a "killer" app. Will have to see.

I've recently been annoyed at why people deviate from best practices. Why reinvent the wheel? For this reason I now understand the real meaning of history. Those who dont understand the history are doomed to repeat it. Learn from your forefathers.

Back to food:

You really have to try sushi with the hottest wasabi possible.
