Whew… I just drove in, having done some 4,000 odd kilometres over the last week and a half. Wish I’d remembered the car… (b’doom tish) Trip report later, but in the meantime, the tide of the presses knows no satiety. First up, CNET.com.au has a couple of my reviews up: Sony Bravia KLV-S40A10 LCD television:: […]

They publish him here, they publish him there…

They publish that dastardly Kidman everywhere..
