Off on vacation from 24th Dec to 10th Jan, so my last day of "real" work this year is tomorrow.
Thanks to all three readers (that's 150% up on last year) for your comments, help, and occasional bouts of sanity. I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year, unless you don't celebrate that sort of thing at this time of the year, in which case I'll just look uncomfortable, shuffle my feet and try to change the subject.
[Update] The roads North out of Sydney were packed to a standstill, blowing out a 7 hour drive to Coffs Harbour to nearly 14. The news told me that angry motorists demanded an apology from Transport Minister Carl Scully(TM), but I think I'll just mention it and move on. Sigh.
