My wife stirs me about the number of bags I have, she says I have an obsession. Well, this quote from from Soroush Khanlou’s post “The Perfect Bag” sums it up perfectly.
In Buddhism, they say “there is no path, there are only paths.” It’s the same with bags. Once you accept that all bags are some form of compromise, you can get a few different bags and use the right one for the right trip.
And that’s why I have a couple of different backpacks, a small soft briefcase, a larger soft briefcase, and a roller bag…amongst a couple of travel / clothing bags, and a couple of different camera bags.
One Month In, Tesla’s SA Battery Is Surpassing Expectations
“Following the early success of the SA model, Victoria has also secured an agreement to get its own Tesla battery built near the town of Stawell. Victoria’s government will be tracking the Hornsdale battery’s early performance with interest.”
Imagine an intelligent Australian Government where they put together an energy budget that would fund building one of these in each state, along with a great big solar farm.
Imagine the effect that would have on other Government’s around the world.
Imagine the impact that would have on the planet, the environment.
I’ve been speaking with a couple of friends about Bitcoin lately, what is it, how do you get it, etc. And one friend expressed concern that he didn’t “get” Bitcoin.

I deleted my Spotify premium account yesterday, not for anything Spotify had done, but because I got a Google Home and decided it was easier to use it with Google Play.
I only had a couple of playlists on Spotify, so it wasn’t a messy breakup…
The iPhone is 10 years old today. I can’t even remember what phone I had prior to getting an iPhone, I do remember waiting in line to get the iPhone 3G though, which was the first iPhone we got in Australia.
For the last 10-12 hours, every time I wake my iPhone, I get this notification that there’s an update to download, yet when I go to Settings / General / Software Update it says that I’ve got the latest version.
It’s kind of annoying.
My Drobo has died, it won’t power up at all, I’ve got a lot of data on it. I’ve either got to buy a new one and hope the disks work in it, or kiss that data goodbye. Ugh.
