Ah, fire safety. There are a few rules which, apparently, you should follow regarding your house. If the area around your house is clear of high trees, you can actually stay in your house while the fire front passes, then come out and put out spot fires started by embers.

Here in The Blocks at Mt Nebo, that doesn’t apply. There are many, many trees near us. We don’t own all of them. We’re at the top of a long hill. Fire travels faster up hill. But here’s the fun bit: the big red fire trucks will not come up into the blocks if there’s a fire. The big plan in case of big fire: evacuate early. Wa-hey.

Anyway, I’m spending my time at the moment writing a new Advanced Photoshop course, to be run soon at the Design College of Australia. Looking forward to teaching it; should be fun. More teaching at QUT should be good too, plus more stuff for Infinite. It’s all good, though the free time is dwindling. I look at my calendar and can’t see the numbers any more. Naah, I’ve got free time, but it’s all fractured. Every week is different, which keeps it interesting and lets me work from home more. Cool.

But… need… broadband… now.
