Damn. Spent way too long trying to get cwm running on the WinXP laptop only to get bitten by Windows. The authors have two files URI.py and uri.py in the same directory, Windoze still only allows the one.

Monash city council seem to be doing their bit to increase the amount of litter in the City of Monash. Someone had gone to a great deal of trouble to gather up the abandoned shopping trolleys that were lying in Gardiners creek and drag them to the side of the path. They’d picked up an impressive amount of garbage; old cardboard, bottles, etc, and filled the trolleys with this. Presumably they’d then called the council to let them know…

As I was riding up the path, a council truck drove past me, then parked next to the trolleys. I didn’t see how this happened, but when I came past in the evening, the trolleys were gone, but all the garbage has been emptied on the ground!

That’s the second time in a couple of months this has happened. I guess some council-worker genius believes that his job is only to collect the trolleys…
