Neat facts about major cities in Australia

If anybody reading this has been curious of macro-meteorological medians (average climates and temperatures) visit ACU. They have interesting facts which I never knew, like:

Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and dry, mild winters. The city’s highest recorded temperature was 43.2°C on the 26 January 1940 and its coldest was -0.1°C on 9 July 2007, which was the first time Brisbane’s temperature fell below freezing point.

Beautiful! a near-zero probability for snow and freezing temps! has more statistics like:

June/July/August – Winter
Mean temperature: 15.60 C
Max average temperature: 21.20 C
Min average temperature: 10.10 C

Hardly ever less than 10C in the winter! Rock on!

Tomorrow is Two Months

I’ve been in Australia for two months now (came Dec 4th). So far things are going smoother than I could have expected. We found place to live rather quickly, although there are other suitable places, we didn’t want to spend more time & effort searching, inspecting, and filling out applications. This one was available, so we took it.

Another job offered me around $16/hr, including 4 weeks vacation (the norm around here), sick pay (normal as well), and a business car to drive around Brisbane. I told him “no” because i found another job requiring no quotas, hardly any major responsibilities, and $19/hr. I figured, for the 6-12 months that I will be working in Brisbane, I’ll take the $19/hr.

I submitted my application to OzTrekk yesterday. It should arrive there in about 2 weeks, and tomorrow I should find out how much time it will take before I will be notified of weather or not I got in.

Chatting with the folks Sunday should be a lot of fun. My webcam isn’t working (yet) with opensuse 11.1 (it worked with 11.0 so I don’t get it). I’ll get it sooner or later, but for now I might need to borough EVs laptop/webcam so I can skype my family back home.

Australia is suffereing some strange weather — hurricanes (called cyclones around the pacific), droughts in some parts, floods in others, fires. It is affecting crops, and prices at my store have been bouncing like yo-yo’s.

Mentally, I am focussed on working, earning some money, paying for my food/rent/etc. Nextly, I will look at P.R. (permanent residency) to see if I can take my Masters program as a domestic student (and pay 50% tuition)

Tricky Windows Worm Wallops Millions

A sneaky computer worm that uses a virtual Swiss army knife of attack techniques has infected millions of Microsoft Windows PCs, and appears to be spreading at a fairly rapid pace, security experts warn.

Also, while infected PCs could be used for a variety of criminal purposes — from relaying spam to hosting scam Web sites — there are signs that this whole mess may be an attempt to further spread so-called “scareware,” which uses fake security alerts to frighten consumers into purchasing bogus computer security software.

The worm, called “Downandup” and “Conficker” by different anti-virus companies, attacks a security hole in a networking component found in most Windows systems. According to estimates from Finnish anti-virus maker F-Secure Corp., the worm has infected between 2.4 million and 8.9 million computers during the last four days alone.

If accurate, those are fairly staggering numbers for a worm that first surfaced in late November. Microsoft issued an emergency patch to fix the flaw back in October, but many systems likely remain dangerously exposed.

One reason for this is because businesses will generally test patches before deploying them on internal networks to ensure the updates don’t break custom software applications. In the meantime, an infected laptop plugged into a vulnerable corporate network can quickly spread the contagion to all unpatched systems inside that network.

But the worm also has methods for infecting systems that are already patched against the Windows vulnerability. According to an analysis last week by Symantec, the latest versions of Downadup copy themselves to all removable or mapped drives on the host computer or network. This means that if an infected system has a USB stick inserted into it, that USB stick will carry the infection over to the next Windows machine that reads it. That’s an old trick, but apparently one that is apparently still very effective.
