Rain Rain Rain Rain!

Isn’t it just pissing it down!

Who’da thought bricks got thirsty, it’s been raining solidly for hours and the bricks of the building are only just starting to get slick.


(BTW The weather radar is here)

Well, it is to do with the national museum and a fish…I’ll let your imagination work it out until Johnboy decides to add it to the collection (or I’ll email it if he doesn’t)

I can only hope that isn’t as sleazy as it sounds.

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 10:49 am 13 Jun 05

Nope, already got it…for nearly a year now…but I have 50 invites to give away…

Must send johnboy one of the photos I found on the webcams last year.

Thanks – I used to look at these all the time last year.
ps – was it you that wanted a gmail?

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 11:40 pm 12 Jun 05

Yep, sure do, [here]

Acessible from the home page via the weather link and then the webcam link.

samuel – do you have the address for the ACTEW cams? I can’t get to it from their site anymore.

I like the weather company, I admire and would love to know how they made a successful business out of re-releasing the BOM info. I guess all the TV Stations cutting costs by outsourcing graphics had something to do with it…but there has to be more to it.

The main reason I don’t like ninemsn is that it falls into the category of “Reminds me of, or requires me to use Internet Explorer”. I don’t like these things, but will use them when required.

Maybe it’s because they’re two very dodgy companies colluding to expand their dominance in a new field?

Yep, that does it for me.

Yes I realize it comes from the met.office Samuel…. I’m just a bit perplexed at all the antininemsnism.

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 4:15 pm 12 Jun 05

and The Weather Company is the originator of those images CUH, weatherzone is their “consumer” service, and they provide weather graphics for a number of news services…there is a small difference between the two pictures, ninemsn have changed the aspect ratio and make Australia look skinnier…ninemsn also have lots of ads.

Yes, the green tinge is nice. I would like to see more rain…there is some cloud forming near Adelaide, perhaps if you hold your breath and get Tim to shake his stick it will rain again.

funny how you notice the instant green appear tinge in all the grass…within a day of some rain!

I most certainly hope it’s less than 6-8 months Fiona. I’ve already lost two shrubs and one tree (due to lack of water), and I can’t afford to turn the sprinkler on, because I get ‘slugged’ with a massive water bill from ACTEW if I do !

It’s this one

But I’m not sure if I’m comfortable with the bandwith usage (ie is it only downloading the map I want or all of them?)

In any event it gives a great view out of the dashboard

Geoffco Geoffco 12:29 am 12 Jun 05

JB – which dashboard widget are you using? I’m assuming this is on your new ibook?

Fiona Fiona 12:10 am 12 Jun 05

in another 6-8 months, probably.

Canberra_unsung_hero Canberra_unsung_hero 11:26 pm 11 Jun 05

I think the IMPORTANT point is — will there be follow-up rain ?

johnboy johnboy 11:16 pm 11 Jun 05

gee, wonder which one is the original source???

No.. Wait… hmm maybe BOM could be the better place to actually get this information?

Canberra_unsung_hero Canberra_unsung_hero 11:09 pm 11 Jun 05

That second link you put up is exactly the same picture as the ninemsn link.

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 10:55 pm 11 Jun 05

hmmm, to clarify my first comment…I was trying to say that I haven’t seen the ActewAGL webcams with pictures as dark as they were for quite a long time.
