I just installed a new battery in my mid 2011 MacBook Air! Wohoo! I got it from iFixit - I'm looking forward to the new lease on life with my little MacBook! With all the flying that I do having a 5-7 hour battery life is going to be super useful!

Hello my wonderful friends at Canaan Land! Thanks for the invitation to the group +Larry Lee - I will be at the Alpha Conference in Malaysia in September.  I hope to see you there! I am also bringing my wife along.  It will be her first time in glorious Malaysia! God bless and keep up the wonderful work.

Mi Brompton  - 
 
Here are a few pictures of my Brompton bikes - I have a 2000 yellow M3L called 'Doris' that I take with me when I travel (Holland, Malaysia, UK, USA etc. it goes into a Brompton B Bag). I also have a 2011 M6L (black) it is called Darth Vader! I have done a few longer rides on this bike (100km or more at a time. I also ride it on the 109km Argus Cycle race in Cape Town each year). In addition to my Bromptons I also have a Cannondale Scalpel 29" Mountainbike and a Moutlon TSR27. They are all wonderful, but I love my Bromptons most of all! you can follow my Brompton adventures on http://capetownbrompton.tumblr.com

Last night I forgot to set a session when I went to sleep. Is there any way that I can go back and add it?

Our conference starts at 5pm this evening so Megie and I went for a run and a swim this morning before having tea! I think this is the first time in about three years that we've had so much 'down time' together. It is such a blessing!

This is the largest provider of Theological training in the Southern Hemisphere! Great courses, super friendly staff, and good theology. It is an honour to serve on their board.

I love flying to Lanseria. It is a completely different experience from OR Tambo. Flights are mostly on time, staff are friendly and the airport is less congested on the whole. For the cost of a return trip from OR Tambo to Sandton I can rent a small car for the day and drive to my meetings and be independent.

Some awesome camera gear. But the service is not great. I ended up buying a Voigtlander lens for my Leica at a much lower price from the Sony shop in the same mall. I will visit again, but mainly to look at the second hand equipment.

I have attended a few evening concerts in this beautiful theatre. It is in a magnificent setting, it is cozy and intimate, the food is great, the sound was awesome. I highly recommend it! You won't be sorry!
