The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to him. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

If you're using Apple OS X could you do me a favour and advise what the script reports so I can update the javascript? Browser sniffer experiment.

Make sure that your Java VM is enabled or down load the newest one from Sun. Uninstall older versions.
Running XP and not sure what you've got?  IE should offer to download the latest if you browse a page requiring the JVM and it's not installed.  Otherwise try this: run Windows Command Prompt (from Start / All Programs / Accessories / Command Prompt) then type "jview" and hit return.  The installed version is at the right of the first line!!
Which version of Flash do you have?
Want to know how to extract that browser and OS info; here's how you write the scripts and insert the html.

 A340 over Kowloon on its way to Runway 31 at Kai Tak
Welcome to this small chunk of cyberspace and my efforts to keep my distant friends up with our adventures.  The hardest part of this seem to be keeping the site up to date but also avoiding spending every minute of every day tinkering with the smallest of items.

The site is currently being built with Microsoft's Expression Web so feel free to advise me of my errors!
If you’ve found the site, it's only really here for my experimentation but I hope you may find a few things of interest here, perhaps on my CX and PC pages, some dubious humour, relearn Rubik's cube, play Asteroids or solve Sudoku.  I work in Hong Kong for Cathay Pacific Airways at Chek Lap Kok pictured below - Hong Kong’s airport - but rather than fly the Farman biplane, I fly the Airbus A330/A340 as a Captain.

 A quick trip to the airport  A340-600 - off to China Hainan Airlines in Summer 2008. Good riddance!


Well, you know what I do, so why not have a look around by clicking on one of the links at the bottom of the page and when you're done, feel free to tell me what you think ...

While I agree that we need to do something about the air quality, personally I do not think wind power is an answer. With wind power capacity factors only up to 45% with the need for spinning reserves, electricity costs 7.2p/kWh compared with 2.2 for gas-fired CCGT. 140 2.3MW turbines covering 30 sq miles at Whitelee will produce an installed capacity of 322MW; 7% of the output of a nuclear plant that would need 3.5% of the area, ignoring the need for spinning reserve! In 2003, the most recent year for which figures are available, America's power-generation industry spent less on R&D as a proportion of turnover than did the country's pet-food industry.
