Firefox 1.5 Is Out Christmas Cruise Story

New Day Australia Christmas Function News

December 1st, 2005 at 04:52am

This will be the final post before I head off this morning, infact, you might not hear back from me until tomorrow. As you may be aware, I should be at the Opera House by 11:30am, be boarding the Lady Rose at midday, and be back on land by 4pm (again at the Opera House).

This here is a live view from a webcam overlooking Sydney Harbour
Sydney Harbour LIVE!

You can actually gain control of this camera for two minutes by visiting

Canon also have a webcam with a similar control system on top of their building, the difference with it being that you can literally zoom in on a car licence plate, so you could try and spot me at the Opera House with it. For the Canon Webcam visit

Next up we have a lovely weatherzone button with the current temperature, time and wind in Sydney, clicking on it will take you to a more detailed weatherzone page.

The bureau of meteorology have this to say about Sydney weather, issued at 4:30am

Humid. A few showers and afternoon or evening thunderstorms. Light west to northwest winds turning light to moderate north to northeast.

I should have lots of photos and writing about the cruise and my trip on this site sometime on Friday.

Finally, I spoke with John Kerr this morning at about 2:25am, click here to hear our conversation.

    I caught a flash of this article as I was scrolling down your home page and, now this is absurd, I saw the words “New” and “Day”, saw lights near the Harbour Bridge and my heart skipped a beat as for a moment I thought I’d somehow missed New Years.

    And this is a great site. Keep up the good work.
