Hey - it´s finally on again!!!
The DAKAR Rally has started.
I love this rally - its the best sporting event of the year, and its also the first one - it starts on New Years Day. So it started yesterday.
SBS does a daily update at 6 in the arvo that lasts 30 min. I´d suggest anyone who´s interested takes a look. Its a fantastic rally, hundereds of cars, bikes, and trucks doing the marathon trek down to Dakar in Africa. Some of the stages take 24 hours to complete or longer. By the time they get to the end, the difference between first and second can be hours - not the minutes and seconds in most rallys. Sometimes people are days behind...
I made a collage picture (which isnt very good) but its got some great shots in it. Enjoy

I thought I´d show this off - because I think its really cool. I got it about a week ago, but this is the first time I´ve had the camera and been able to take a photo of it.
Its a DALEK from England. Tommy (a friend of mine) sent it down when he was up there for a while. I think its great, and you cant get them down here (at least not that I´ve found).
It´s a keyring, but I think I´ll just keep it as a collectable.
Christmas TripjawaproSun 01/01/2006 09:18 PM
Hey everyone - I´m back from my Christmas trip. Very nice to catch up with family again. Got some cool goodies for Christmas too! The picture is of Newmans Beach, where we went for a walk on the Monday. I´ve camped here before, and I really like it here.

Project Mara MKIIjawaproThu 15/12/2005 09:18 PM
Today was the official launch of project: MARA MKII
This is a fancy way of deciding I am going to upgrade my computer, and turn the current one into a server for hosting media files.
The new JadesFire (my main PC) will be the best I can afford at the time. This is now where I will be channelling my savings.
The current JadesFire (AMD 1600) will become the new Mara (my main server). It will be given some new Harddrives to hold all the stuff, and a Video card with a decent TV-out capability. This means I´ll be able to plug it straight into the tv.
The current Mara (only a P3) will probably be kept as a unix server, but given a new name. Any ideas for the name for this server, let me know.
