Do you use Dropbox? You should. It's better than bad... it's GOOD! Seriously, as a web service I love Dropbox almost as much as I love Evernote. Keep stuff synchronised between computers, smart phones and portable devices.

FINALLY! Since switching to the Android I've been looking for a replacement to my old iOS MySongbook app.

Not only does SongBook replace it, it improves upon it, and comes with a shareware desktop client as well (available in many flavours).

The app cost me AU$5.00. The desktop client (which isn't necessary to make the app run... but it's going to make my life fabulously easy as I transfer a whole heap of lyrics + guitar chords over) is AU$29.00 and may well be the first piece of computer software I've bought in years.

I have been the proud owner of both these programs for approximately 90 minutes and I love them.

So, it's Movember and I have shaved off my beard and started the month fresh-faced.

By the end of the month I aspire to looking like this:

How is a bad radio station like the US public school system?

Please consider signing this petition. It seems to be having some effect:

So, thanks to the wonders of peer pressure, I will be joining the Glenferrie Primary School team of Mo Bros (http://au.movember.com/mospace/1425054) for Movember 2011.

This is significant for two reasons:
- Mens' health is a serious issue and Movember is a darned fine way to promote awareness and raise funds.
- I have not had a naked face since the early nineties. Movember rules state that one must start the month clean-shaven... so here is photographic evidence of why I usually maintain a beard.

Mo pics to follow as it grows.

Beautiful decor and great service. It *was* a Sunday night, so understandably quiet, but we had a grand time there. Music was spot on. "Casablanca" playing silently on the wall was perfect. And Andrew at the bar was just gushingly nice. We will be back.
