Bus Australia Launch New-Look Website

Bus Australia, the Australian bus enthusiast website, encompassing the Australian Transport Discussion Board, have launched a new look website, which is much easier to navigate, and easier to look at than the old site.

Major improvements include:

  • An updated version of the photo gallery, unfortunately some of the old photos were not imported and they remain in the old photo gallery.
  • The entire website now contains one universal header, which makes the site look more consistent, and allows people to navigate to any part of the site from any page, something which was previously only possible from the home page.
  • The website is now maintained with the open source CMS software, Joomla, a code fork of Mambo. Incidentally, whilst 2GB don’t publicise it, their website is powered by Mambo.

Overall, the new Bus Australia website is looking pretty good, and I look forward to the further improvements they have planned.

Schnappi makes the ARIA 2005 End Of Year Singles Chart

I suppose this will be the final time I will have the pleasure of bringing you a Schnappi update. The recent release of the ARIA 2005 End Of Year Singles Chart places Schnappi, Das Kleine Krokadil, as the 27th most popular song of 2005. This would therefore be a good time to show you a picture of Schnappi!

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

Yes, I know, I’m late with this, but it’s better late than never…or so I’ve been told.

This week the award returns to normal and is awarded to Herman’s Hermits. Choosing a feature song was difficult, but I ended up settling on “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter”.

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter
Girls as sharp as her are somethin’ rare
But it’s sad, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

She wants to return those things I bought her
Tell her she can keep them just the same
Things have changed, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she’s broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she’s broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
