Woah.. it was Thursday.. there was a bright flash.. and now it's Sunday night! Actually, the bright flash was my motherboard expiring, not me being taken by aliens. But something did convince me to ride my motorcycle for 2 hours to Goulburn at 6am in the FREEZING COLD yesterday, so alien control could be the answer. X-Files aside, here's some news catchup..
