Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

Great Trip!

Some amazing dives, finished my PADI AOW and got a Nitrox quali while I was at it. Saw the HMS Maori and the P-29 wrecks... Cam enclosure worked great to 35m, so very happy with that as a 2nd hand buy as well. Just need some Aperture / Photoshop time at home then I'll post a gallery. Only glitch was the energy monitor at home crashing and needing a reset. All other 'stuff' worked great while I was away.

Slow Sunday Ride


So it seems my cherished and much-loved G4 PowerBook, which the Internet would lead you to believe is still immensely capable and a true modern design classic, is worth about £80. This is in immaculate condition and boxed, with the newest version of OS X installed. That's such a derisory value I'm keeping it for posterity and as an emergency Mac laptop. Still a bit grr though.
