Busy this week

Been too damn busy to think of very much intelligent to blog about.

I did post a long meandering review of my new mobile phone over at geekrant though.

Oh, and I can tell you about this fabulous email I got the other week:

Subject: Your Food Pyramid/Trapezoid presented at food and nutrition seminar

Hello Daniel,

I was at the food industry seminar mentioned in this news story, along with many other academics and professionals from food manufacturing and nutritional health industries: Good in the snack (Herald-Sun, 27 June 2006)

The main theme of the seminar was nutritional trends and eating habits of Australian consumers, now and in the future.

You might be interested to hear that in his presentation, Dr Keast (mentioned in the news story) illustrated actual eating habits vs desired nutritional habits, by showing your Food Pyramid/Trapezoid from the toxiccustard site!

Best Regards,

I just got a new Nokia. I think it is the same model as your new phone. I’ve given up on other brands after having had two duds. My last phone (an LG) was 3 weeks out of warranty when the microphone went kapput then they wanted to charge me $40 just to give me a quote to repair it and wait for 3-4 weeks. I am going to stick to Nokia from now on. I cannot believe the clarity of the pictures you have taken. Who needs a digital camera!

Just read your quote in the Age today:

Public Transport Users Association president Daniel Bowen said the station was “noticeably cold, especially in the evenings”.

…I am so glad I don’t have to get on and off at Spencer Street anymore. (I hate that name change!)

I actually sort of know Dr Keast. He is a nice guy and knows his stuff about food. He also knows a bit about computers. The guy is NOT silly. However if Daniel is advising Dr Keast on the food pyramid? Maybe Russell could give him a few tips about computers :o)


Russell didn’t specifically mention where he had got the illustration from, but the “(C) Daniel Bowen” and “” were clearly visible – that’s how I recognised it!
