Twitter + Drupal + Pidgin

You've been hearing a lot about it in the news, and you're only going to hear more and more. If your business isn't looking into twitter, you're missing a boat thats growing massively - http://xlnk.me/16.

There are ways you can take advantage of twitter, the great thing about twitter is that you dont have to have a long spiel about what you've been doing. This, and other "blogs" i've done do take time, and a real concerted effort to do. Twitter "tweets" are a lot more casual.

Helmet ejection system

Shockdoctor - http://www.shockdoctor.com have released a new product that can helps remove helmets in the advent of a serious accident.

It is so simple, but so effective. If any sort of spinal injury is suspected, it allows the Helmet to be pushed off by the internal bladder.

Like a lot of great inventions, its very simple, and yet very clever, and very well priced as well for something that could save your life.

Jetfire Heater

As we're living in a shed at the moment, and we needed a heater, I thought something a bit "industrial" would be ok. After some research, we purchased a "Jetfire" heater, which sure does throw out a lot of heat!

Trouble is, our shed is like 3.6metres high, so lots of warmth is a the top. Still, a HEAP better than no heater at all, with the nights getting closer and closer to 0C

Road trip

Had to travel yesterday for my Uncles funeral, 960km in a day isn't bad. On the way we stopped at a park and walked the dogs around for a bit, and found these massive moths on the back of the toilet block.

They look big and scary enough to make up quite a story:

Here you see the Australian vampire moth, known to suck blood from other less dangerour Australian animals like Kangaroos, Koalas, Tasmanian Devils and more.
