AIR News Update

As some of you may recall from a previous post, I am now working with Australian Independent Radio News.

I can now prove this allegation by the fact that I finally got around to organising a photo shoot today and I am now appearing on the “On Air Team” page.

The photo you see there is a condensation of this photo

And now, simply because I am nice, you can hear my 5PM Saturday 27th of August 2005 bulletin here.

All feedback appreciated!

Blog View Stats for August

Alrighty then, it’s time for the monthly wrap-up of the previous month’s statistics.
Of particular interest to me:

  • Firefox won the month with 53.42% of the readership using it.
  • The number of visitors and page views appeared to increase after the site moved to it’s current location.
  • Regular Commenter John_b1_b5 was the most common search term used to get here
  • Somebody who can’t spell wanted to cheat at a school assignment “simple assay about my favourite sport…”
  • A bunch of people came here for Schnappi info and Kelly Underwood info
  • The “Samuel Blog 2CC” searcher is still lurking in the wings (please contact me, I would love to know why you chose that search term)
  • And the home page for the new site had more visitors in it’s short time online than the old site’s index page had all month, 196 to 159

You can find all of the August 2005 stats here.

Alarm Clock Accidents

In the circus of my life, alarm clock accidents can be minor disasters, making me late for various things, and in general, causing chaos. However after my latest alarm clock accident this morning I heard on the news that somebody else had a far worse alarm clock accident.

An air traffic controller at Canberra Airport slept in, effectively leaving Canberra Airport without an air traffic controller, and a rather worried Qantas flight circling, the pilots must have been very concerned as they wouldn’t have been able to make contact with the airport.

I would have thought that common sense tells you to have more than one air traffic controller scheduled at any given time…but this is little Canberra and I do have a category devoted to idiots…well done Canberra Airport.

Somebody from Canberra Airport did say that it was “unacceptable” and that they would make sure they had at least two air traffic controllers scheduled at any given time from now on, but it seems strange that they didn’t think of it in the first place.
