This is Zyggy from Australia (OZ-Tralia for the yanks, n, poms) No I am not picking on the Northeners, thats just how the world perceives we speak "downunder" or in the "antipodes"
I have often sat out back (or front) under the Southern Cross and wished for that elusive light to appear so that I could say, "Beam Me Up Scotty".
Believe me I would leave this planet without hesitation!! Except that I still have to go to the "Bungle Bungles" first. (work that 1 out)
Oz is a fantastic place, Cape York - FNQ (or Far North Queensland) with its tropical rainforest down to Hobart - Tasmania (just above Antarctica) with snow on the mountains and its own chocolate factory in town, MMMnnnnnn, you should smell the chokky.
Want some OZ pics? Cut and paste the Webshots address below to go to "Zyggys Australia" Please leave a message to say you called.
I was in the states in '99 and picked up a paper that mentioned the SETI project, When I got home I set up my computer to run the programme, Back then it took an average 150 hours per unit , now I am plugging them through every 1.5 hrs. Ahhh progress. My goal was to reach 5000 units on SETI classic, done!
There is not a better place on this earth and not a nicer bunch of people than Australians! (we come from all corners of this globe)
"Come Down and see us some time"
That message was for you Earthlings as well, Ha Ha Ha Ha,
