Misc: On-line shopping for Region 4 DVDs

What a sad experience looking for Region 4 DVDs in Australian on-line shops; same prices (plus / minus 10%), same items, same unavailable items, minimal user interfaces to their on-line catalogues and eye candy that takes forever to load. The only substantial difference is how each shop calculates shipping costs! No reviews (except HMV) and no user history; nothing to draw me back. Compare prices with GetOnce and pick the cheapest shop.

Misc: Procrastination

I finally created a blog after procrastinating for months. I knew I was going to do it because I wanted to publish something occasionally but as every procrastinator knows, some other task jumps to the front of our mental priority list and we never get around to it. Until today.
