公告:JT@downunder 併入 JTBlog

先看下面一篇joetsang.net集團網誌業務簡介:

算來我的個人網站已有十多年的悠久歷史。長期以來,它都是以專頁為主,即是說,我的網頁大都是關於特定題目,不時更新的。但我這個人是網上資訊發燒友,每天在網上去去這,逛逛那,搜尋訊息,自得其樂。有時在網上找到自已喜愛的訊息,希望與人分享,但這些訊息又不屬於任何專頁的題目。怎辦?

2001年7月,我終於以土法煉鋼的精神,自製了一個「網誌」:將發掘的訊息,以Catch of the Day(當日時鮮)為名,放在joetsang.net首頁的下方,過後由新的取代舊的。至於所有出現過的Catch of the Day,則以專頁形式留存,以倒時序排列。現今的JTBlog曾堯角落,乃是網誌軟件Blogger出現後的替代品,2003年3月開張。

總括而言,我在網誌上寫的,大多是納納雜雜,無關痛癢的網上遊蕩紀綠。重在分享捕穫,不重議論。只求娛己,有否娛人不得而知。

但我雖是納雜人,卻不喜歡溜覽納雜網頁(99%網誌均屬此類)。2004年4月,由於退休兼移民,故新增joetsang@downunder網誌,專注澳洲生活小事。後來,Blogger推出新版測試版,我以此新開一個關於奇斯洛夫斯基的「專頁」網誌測試。

近來,也嘗試以網誌形式製作旅遊專頁,2006日本訪古賞楓之旅和日本四國秋悠遊即為例子。但一切書寫完成後,這類網誌將不再更新,實質上與網頁無異,因此它已自此頁遷出。

尚未完成的旅遊網誌:Four Weeks in Italy(遙遙無期)

即是說,本集團旗下的6大網誌,4個屬於「專頁」網誌,與網頁實質無異,只有JTBlog曾堯角落joetsang@downunder可歸類為納雜日誌。

本集團現正式宣佈,由2009年1月1日起,JT@downunder將併入JTBlog,以壯聲威。此後,集團主席曾堯的一切澳洲活動訊息,舉凡掃地淋花,遊蕩逛街,吃喝玩樂,均會盛大刊載於JTBlog曾堯角落網誌,以饗廣大讀者群。

joetsang@downunder網誌截至目前的所有內容,已全數復製至JTBlog網誌。至於本網誌,將不拆卸,供人憑吊。

Google Street View comes to my place

Google Maps introduced its new Street View function in Australia 2 days ago.

Out of curiosity, I checked whether my humble place of abode was covered by this latest and greatest technology. Indeed it was!

Only in Australia: sickie tradition 'under threat'

A self-confessed footy fanatic is appealing a landmark ruling that upheld his sacking for taking the day off work to watch an AFL game.

In what lawyers claim threatens the Australian tradition of taking a sickie, Nathan Anderson, a former trainee dealer with Melbourne's Crown casino, failed to have his sacking overturned by the federal Magistrates Court.

Mr Anderson, 27, obtained a medical certificate after telling a doctor that he wanted to see Sheedy coach his last game in Perth.

He was warned by Crown not to take sick leave to attend the game, but flew to Perth, later insisting he had been suffering "emotional distress" at the thought of missing the match.

Mr Anderson told Crown that it was not open to the company to question his medical certificate, and that he was "highly passionate" about Essendon, Sheedy, and club star James Hird, who played his last game that day.

Federal magistrate dismissed Mr Anderson's claim that he had been unlawfully terminated, finding his absence from work was not caused by illness or injury. "Mr Anderson basically told all concerned at work, 'I am going to go to this game come what may and I will get a certificate to justify my position'," he said.

Here comes autumn

Today is officially the start of autumn in Australia. Overall, the summer months were pretty mild and wet.

While we had a 40 degree day in late February, high 20's-low 30's was the norm and the air-con was switched-on only occasionally.

With the dam level reaching a dangerously low level of 15% at the start of the year, La Nina and the rain she brought couldn't have come at a better time. More than half of the summer days were rainly. As a result, dam level has improved to almost 40% now and the we are allowed to water the garden by hose for one hour this weekend. But since we have already installed a giant water tank (which is full most of the time), we haven't been using mains water for gardening purpose for quite a long while already.

The heavy rains also brought drought relief to the rural areas. The central and northern parts of Queensland, though, suffered much from severe flooding.

According to weather forecasters, La Nina is here to stay for the time being and the autumn is likely to be wetter than normal.

好耐無沖涼

無去遊水幾個月,今日下水禮。泳術生疏,好快無氣。轉去暖水泡泡池。第一感覺係,沖涼真好,好耐無沖...

講笑啫。此地制水,好耐無沖浴缸涼就真。

QLD tourists to limit shower time

Tourists coming to south-east Queensland will be asked to do their bit to save water in the drought-hit region.

Queensland Water Commission chairwoman Elizabeth Nosworthy said a new proposal would require accommodation providers in the state's south-east to install signs in bathrooms.

The signs would ask tourists to limit their showers to four minutes and not to leave the tap running while brushing their teeth or shaving.

To date there have been no uniform measures to encourage tourists to save water and information campaigns and signage has been provided by individual councils.
