The aircraft museum at Albion Park looks like a great place to visit someday. 
 
Went to the HARS aircraft museum at Albion Park yesterday. They have an absolutely wonderful collection of old aircraft engines and historical aircraft.

And of course I got to see inside VH-OJA amongst many other aircraft.

What strikes me about HARS is that every volunteer genuinely loves what they do and take care of their aircraft with a sense of pride and ownership.

If you walk around HARS you'll be surrounded by people who can't wait to tell you every detail about every aircraft.

Maybe if I come back, I'll see if I can have a fly in Connie.

A must listen. An ethereal blending of bass and strings and woodwinds - highlighting Anoud Brahem on the oud. His new Album is featured this week on http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/dailyplanet/

I ran across this last night. At school, we had Canon programmable calculators, but they weren't as flexible as this HP 9100. Having video output and interface to a plotter, printer  as well as magnetic or marked card based programming made them very flexible, especially for a classroom.

I also wonder whether TCP port 9100 for HP JetDirect printing  over IP was chosen in homage to the model number?

This is why Ara has got more than a chance of making it.
A collaboration between Sennheiser and Phoneblocks has produced a couple of audio component concepts, designed for the modular Project Ara smartphone.

Airways Hotel was excellent - friendly and helpful staff, nice room and facilities and great food. The location shown here on Google Maps is wrong though - it is not in Boroko as shown here, but right next to the airport on Jackson's Parade.

Apart from the wonderful dish No.1, Phở Bò (or Rare Beef Rice Noodle Soup), I am a particular fan of the Deep Fried Pork Chop, both as a Rice Noodle Soup and the traditional vietnamese Bún, or Rice Vermicelli. The service here is fast, even though there might be a queue of patrons out the door at lunchtimes. You are served tea as you sit, and a Phở (with all the fresh accompaniments of Basil and Bean shoots) are there usually in less than 5 minutes. Don't go past this unassuming restaurant - the laminex is cleaned before every meal!
