Yeah, it's surprisingly tricky to get windows doing exactly what you want them to under various conditions.

Typical window sandwich we have here, from outside going in: security bars, louvre windows, mosquito screen. I don't personally like louvre windows, but they can be opened and closed without busting through the bread slices of your window sandwich.

Playing Axis & Allies by yourself with shifting alliances is a sad but thoroughly entertaining way to spend a week.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?
October. Love the cooler temps (yet not too cold as in the brutal winter months), the refreshing crisp air and beautiful autumn foliage colors.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?
Splashed my face in the bathroom sink with cold water. My eyes are tired today.

3. What is or was your favourite board game?
Operation, my great-grandmother’s old Mensch ärgere Dich nicht board game, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Chess.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)
Fairly easy. I’m slim and borderline tall (5’8”) but not overly tall to cause length issues, so generally don't have difficulties with fitting to standard size.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?
First media I purchased in my teens with summer job money - a Panasonic all-in-one stereo with turntable, tuner, amp and dual tape deck.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?
I'm not overly fond of any flag, but I like the Kiribati flag – a tranquil image, and I love birds.



Or a flag I can listen to.

1. What is your favourite month, and why?
February. It's high summer, and the Festival of Perth and the Fringe Festival are in full swing.

2. What non-MB-related thing did you do immediately before reading this?
Put sardines on toast as part of my breakfast.

3. What is or was your favourite board game?
Chess.

4. Generally speaking, do you find it difficult or easy to find clothes in your size (in other words, are you a fat/tall/short/skinny bastard?)
Always been slim (still reasonably so), hence I often find my size is not available in pants/shorts/bathers.

5. What was the very first media you owned for music (CD/MP3 player/Record player/Gramaphone/Edison wax tube phonograph/caveman drums etc)?
A little portable gramophone that I got as a present.

6. If you have a favourite flag, which is it and why?
Canadian. The maple leaf is the perfect symbol, and the fact that it can also be viewed as two faces arguing is appropriate considering the controversy that preceded the flag's adoption.
