Great Turnout to GC Organic Growers AGM

A fairly packed room, with perhaps a 50% better turnout than last year's AGM. The majority of office-bearers agreed to be returned this year, but there were also a few newcomers joining in. Most notably: Maria Roberson is President again, having founded the organisation about 13 years ago. Ross Davis stood down from the VP position, and Lise Racine has taken that position up. The website and library system have some additional new folk, and Justin  Sharman-Selvidge is the new Trip Coordinator and has indicated some very interesting club trips this year.

If you are still in bed, you have missed it

Another typical morning at Surfers Horizons Absolute Beachfront Holiday Apartments, 17th Avenue, Palm Beach. Phone +61 7 553 55 333. It is already 6am, and people have been out here from 4:30, and earlier, to see first light, and sunrise.

A shot at midday. The swimming flags are right out the front today.

Geek heaven: reading techical docs on the PC or an E-Reader

Now that I have a Kobo Reader, and have also installed the Foxfox E-book reader add-on, I can easily read .epub books with either. However, it is quite a bit quicker and easier to read technical manuals in Firefox than in theKobo  e-reader. The latter seems great as an occasional quick reference, when mobile, or for reading sequentially, eg fiction.
