23.10.2002Wednesday 23 October

The day dawned bright and early, around about dawn. I woke up somewhat later, and it was already getting hot. I phoned Brisbane School of Distance Education (BSDE) again, only to find the woman I needed to talk to was busy, and after phoning a second time, the receptionist told me she has now flown out until Monday. Mum arrived back from town where she had stayed the night at Sarah’s, around lunchtime. I did nothing constructive all day, messing around waiting for it to get cooler. Once the sun’s heat had subsided somewhat, I went for a walk to the shop and bought an ice cream, wandering down to the creek after. I could hear a pump running, so I went and found it – surprised to find it was an old-fashioned cast-iron piston pump, and quite a large one at that. The machinery made back in those days sure was strong – and heavy too. I messed around attempting to create a JavaScript that would pop-up a new window with an image in it – surely an easy thing to do if I knew what I was doing, but it just got messed up and I’ve no idea what’s wrong with it now – it freezes Internet Explorer. I had a reasonably early night for a change.
