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.

Ban on the sale of youth off-highway vehicles

I've posted on my dirt bike website about this, but its worth promoting more (please crosspost, link, retweet etc).

The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) has made available a video public service announcement (PSA) regarding the current ban on the sale of youth off-highway vehicles (OHVs), which includes motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, intended for kids 12 and under.

Please view the video here, and take action if you are an enthusiast!

Google friend connect

Google's catchup to facebook connect is in action still, with updates/releases to the API made yesterday to allow better integration with other services.

In particular I was interested in using it with Drupal, and found this post: http://code.google.com/p/google-friend-connect-plugins/wiki/DrupalPlugin which was just updated on the 12th, so should be a very good introduction, and there is a drupal module already, which is great.

I'll try it out later and write another blog post.
