The secret life of drains.

Most of the time drains sit quietly doing their thing. Sometimes they overflow. This one (in front of the OCBC Centre) has something else entirely going on...

That seems a little more plausible than some very complex interacting flows. It is raining unusually heavily this morning, it's entirely conceivable that there's work in progress to clear obstructions.

The Muffinry's intriguing loyalty programme points accumulation system: each customer gets a test tube and a coffee bean is inserted for each coffee purchased.

Story
Introduction
(http://rolandturner.com/about)

I'm an Aussie living in Singapore. My interests are pretty broad, but include:

Technology
  • I am Labs Director at TrustSphere where I explore new applications of the company's technology.
  • I've made something of a habit of involving myself in the founding of technical-community organisations:
    • ProgSoc, which is now older than most of its members (!)
    • APANA's Sydney chapter, which has had the good fortune to suceed in making itself obselete by virtue of the problem that it was created to solve ceasing to exist
    • HackerspaceSG, which is alive and well
  • Java and C
  • Email transport, Virtualisation and "Cloud"
  • 3D printing
Dance
  • Modern Jive, Salsa, Bachata, ... since about 2000. I was even persuaded to perform and compete a few times in 2009/2010, but now just dance socially.
Outdoors Economics
  • An abiding interest since high-school which currently manifests itself as an occasional blog post.
