Some commentary on Brisbane public transport.
There have been reports on Rail Back on Track's forum of a bus driver accusing go card rorters of committing fraud. Taking advantage of the dumber than dumb "9 then free" go card fare policy is not fraud, as long as you use y...

I think I pulled that figure outmyass from BrizCommuter. 

That may just be for Buses, though, not including Trains and Ferries.

At the two hour mark, I'm not sure what time of day it is. In fact, I may not be a reliable source for the actual day.

Hi Javascript developers.

I'm after some info on how to do deep linking with irregular frames.

I have a prototype application (prototype = mainly HTML/JS/CSS with PHP backend and hardcoded data) that I've been working on.  It has a two tier menu to start.  One of second tier menus shows a list of items to the left, and a focus frame of content in the rest of the area.  If relevant to the item, you can select a button in the focus frame to replace the focus frame with another content screen.  The app uses Ajax to collect most of the content. Currently, select an item, and the focus frame is populated via ajax. And that stuff works great, when following the links.

However, there's an application problem I want to solve, and that is deep linking.  I want to be able to use the back button in the browser to go back to previous frames. I want to be able to enter a URL in the address bar, and if you have the permissions, you can go straight to a particular selected item or state (though I probably won't be doing form state).

So far, I'm making use of jquery.address [http://www.asual.com/jquery/address/], and can change the URL when selecting a new item.

The next part I'd like to solve is entering a URL, or refreshing, and going straight to the content.  I'm looking for pointers on best practice on deep linking urls.  For example, via navigation, you might reach /portal/#/numbers/manage?n=61766666666 and you should expect to enter that URL and reach the same content.  However, if you enter /portal/numbers/manage?n=61766666666, would you expect a redirect to the previous format of URL, or would you just display the same content, and do what you can with subsequent navigation.

Normally, I'd place my development questions on StackOverflow, but I think this question is too general, and I don't know any general Javascript forums.  

I should note that I'm using jQuery and requirejs to put this together. If there is a lib that handles routing like this (I'm going to have a look at Backbone next), then I'd appreciate any pointers.

I laughed. And I would have laughed more, if not that my daughter is marching toward 19 months.

I'm somewhat reminded of Louise from Bobs Burgers, when she's all grown up and stuff.

Introduction
From across the sea, I came to the Great Southern Land. Rake-ish and with a funny accent, it's been a strange time fitting in, but now, I'm simply me.

I've traveled afar, and have had fun while doing it.  I'm now in that settling down zone, with the house and the car and the little feet padding down the hallway.

My circle of friends is small and not quite circle shaped. I'm comfortable in solitude, and completely satisfied with the company of the one.

I enjoy computer games, music, my work, my home life.  I've got a baby daughter who is the center of my work. One day, I might get back to Tae Kwon Do, but for the moment, I satisfy my exercise with a run about the block.  It's a life balance that will hopefully see me kicking for quite some time to come.

When I get really old, I hope to be a grumpy old man with an active cane.  Though I suspect I'll be an old fart in baggy shorts, listing to the same 90s rock and grunge that I have been for the last decade.

I'm not playing games on G+ anymore.  It was fun while it lasted (Monster World, City of Wonder and Zombie Lane), but with the exception of Guild Wars 2 on my PC, most of my gaming is limited to what I can play on my iPhone.
