Isle of Man TT style race for Canberra / region?

By 20 September 2014 6

I've been reflecting on recent RA posts about events in Canberra (i.e whether or not Canberra is a boring place), and this prompted me to think what sort of event would put our fair city on the world stage.

Poster cleanup

By 19 October 2008 19

One of the things that always pissed me off about elections was the propensity for candidates (particularly failed ones) to just leave all their posters around the landscape.   The Labor party have been a real help in this regard (taking most of mine down even before the poll was held), and I thin...

ACTION Buses Civic Interchange Clock

By 19 October 2008 22

As a constant user of the ACTION buses (I travel to work and back Downer to Deakin and vice versa). So I spend about 10 hours a week on a bus- if not more.

Today's election - the punters speak

By 18 October 2008 17

Pity I hadn't logged on to Riotact to see the 100 metre piece of string debate. I might have been tempted to bring one along with me this morning, just to stir the possum.
