    So I'm An Islander - Mælodium Ambientum Klaviatorium -- a compilation (one of a series) of mostly sepia-tinged solo piano pieces, with enough reverb to sound like long-forgotten memories drifting back to the surface. Just the thing for a rainy Saturday morning. "Name Yer Price" download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

  5. Tony Abbott refuses to go gracefully

    They don't have to accept anything. They can tut-tut as much as they like and their church can refuse to perform a same-sex marriage. They can stand on the corner and shout "I don't like gay people! They make me feel all tingly down there!". Society however has moved on, and the secular law does not allow discrimination based on sexuality, and will soon (I assume) allow marriage between same-sex couples. Who the state chooses to recognize as married is really none of their damned business. Their religious beliefs are no longer paramount in society, which I guess is the subtext here. --Geoff
  6. Tony Abbott refuses to go gracefully

    Yeah well that person is wrong. The current anti-discrimination act allows a number of exceptions for religious organizations, e.g. refusing to marry or hire anyone not 'living the faith', as it were. An unmarried female teacher at a Catholic school can still get the sack for living in sin and getting knocked-up, IIRC, even though it is clearly discriminatory in the secular school system. --Geoff

    What's this 'ssm will be carried out in their place of worship like it or not' business? AFAIK the churches are currently free to refuse to perform any service for any reason (e.g. the Catholic churches can refuse to marry someone who is divorced) and this will continue. --Geoff

  12. Watching YouTube on TV.

    Most of the newer tellies and set-top boxes will have the yoochewbz as an integrated feature. Personally I have Google Chromecast thingie that plugs into one the HDMI ports of the telly, and connects to my wifi network at home. Then when I open up a youtube app on my phone there's a button to play it on the telly instead, by some kind of arcane and mystical magicks. Similarly with the ABC iView app and the SBS app. --Geoff
