    All branches of HSBC are local ;)

    Pushbike helmets don't hide the face likem/c helmets do. I've not had probs taking bike in banks,
    mind, it is a Brompton ;)

    Ooh, about 41 degrees and the highest humidity WA have known for over 60 years. Add to that the fact
    that Western Power (the state's power company) kind of f*cked up and don't have enough generating
    capacity. So what's their first move? They tell everyone to turn their air conditioning units off or
    risk a big fine! Apparently they'll officially turn a blind eye in extenuating circumstances and
    luckily having a young baby is one of them, so thanks Thomas, your dad doesn't have to shrivel up
    into a wrinkled prune in the heat :)

    > Any engineering jobs going over there ?

    Dunno, have a look at www.seek.com.au. I know there ain't much in the way of higher level IT jobs of
    the kind I'm going for :-(

    Toe strap tightened around the front brake lever easy to get on and off for bikies but woul probably
    give you enough time to whack the blighter!

    I've done that once, but I did know the owner of the bike.

    I'll agree that's "hot". Many in the uk moan at 30C, I love it.

    Add to that the fact that Western Power (the state's power company)
    :)kind of f*cked up and don't have enough generating capacity. So what's )their first move? They

    Good heavens ! Here we are, rarely using heat pumps for heating, prefering to get it "direct" and
    you have a more economical system and told to turn it off ! Of course, the easy answer is to live
    more underground !

    How about you sending us your hot water and we'll return it cooled ?
