Bioshock. I've seen it on the shelves at EB and GW, but had absolutely no idea that it was developed here in Canberra. The ABC are reporting here that Bioshock won top honours for story writing, visual arts, and audio.  This may just be the persuasive touch for me to finally get off my ass an...

New flight paths opened for Canberra Airport?

By 22 February 2008 13

From about 5 am this morning (don't know exactly as no clock in bedroom) a series of flights went low over my humble (lower) Red Hill abode...this hasn't happened before (and no it wasn't the Careflight helicopter, they always detour round my place since I got useful with the .303)....What gives, is...
