Random stuff - and politics

What ever you do or don’t like about the Rudd Government (or is that the Labour Government? We tend to blur these things, but we shouldn’t) this little story should give you some insight into the man Kevin Rudd. Now lets see if he follows through!

Update - the group 78 people were forcible evicted.

Web round up - cool tools

It is hard to write about inane gadgets and web stuff while the horrific conflict in Gaza continues. I hope Israel can rout out the monsters who use innocent civilians and children as human shields while they perpetrate their hatred.

why palestinian children get killed As some commentators have asked, which generation will decide to end the hatred? It must take so much resolve for Israel to go in and brave the international outcry from uninformed bigots and even attacks from within their own country. I hope they do not bow to pressure and stop until they have destroyed both the infrastructure for terror and the leaders of this organisation. Maybe then the mothers will have a chance to teach their children forgiveness and tolerance without the rabid fanatics brainwashing them with hatred of their neighbours. Some pictures if you have the stomach for them.

Anyway – here’s the round up of stuff I haven’t got time to review individually but wanted to share.

Speedtest for your internet connection. Other cool internet IR related tools there as well – email trace, IP trace, IP Whois proxy checkers etc.

I have belatedly created a last.fm account so you can track my music collection and listening preferences. It seems skewed a little, but that is maybe because i listen to random play all a lot.

Group Writing Project What I learned from Government

The High Calling Blogs network (of which I am a part) has a group writing project titled What I learned from Government being hosted by Robert Hruzek.

I have written a  little bit about government here on this blog, but it isn’t really a topic I write about much.

However I do have a confession – I don’t vote.

Now I am not an American so had nothing to do with the recent elections there, though I did vote Obama on the world votes and If the world could vote.
