PhD Talk

Well with my PhD talk coming up in a weeks time I have been spending far too much time in front of my computer so there isn't much of interest to blog about. The most exciting thing I have done of late is create fancy looking images for my talk abstract, hopefully this will distract people from my inability to use the engrish language.

Car Park for Rent

As some of you know we use to rent out our car space to a guy who owned the hairdressers over the road. When he initially offered $100 per month we nearly fell over in shock, who would pay so much for a bloody car space? Well he stopped using the space so it has become available again and I figured I would try and rent it out. Much to my amazement there are numerous web sites where you can list your car space for rent or for sale. Our space has just been put up so if you want a cheap space only minutes walk from the University of Sydney the check it out here.

Warrumbungle National Park

Aleisha and I decided to head away for the easter long weekend and in an attempt to escape the crowds we headed to Warrumbungle National Park. This time I got the hire car I wanted, the economical Hyundai Getz. While we may have suffered permanent spinal damage due to the "sporty" suspension it only used 6L of gas per 100 km and the gear box actually worked. Unfortunately we didnt manage to avoid the crowds but the place was still pretty nice and we got some nice walks in.

After a few failed attempts I managed to get a reasonable star trail photo using a 30 minute exposure.

The Getz, by far the smallest vehicle in the campsite.

The final countdown

Well it is official, I am on borrowed time. Three yeas of my PhD have passed me by and I am now on an extension which will last six months. Hopefully I will be able to get everything finished before the extension runs out.
