Oh that's not so good then at least you have 30s. :P

Weather is quite strange today, -1 and its raining.

In Melbourne today (2/1/12) we will go for 40C, our first stinker for the summer. My computer tells me current temp (10am) is 30C.

Sounds great I were you I would go down to the beach asap, but I would probably miss a snowy white Christmas.

Meanwhile in Poland the snowless winter continues. It's +4°C right now and it drizzles. Drizzle in January!
I love winter and I love snow, so the weather like the one we are currently having is like nightmare - everything is wet, gray and depressing.

I like snow too, so I don't like this rain: it has literally been raining all year!

I don't like snow 'cause it is my job to clean it away which is really a hard work in heavy snow and needs 2-3 hours daily.
But these rains, freezing just as falling, creating a thick ice on everything... it is even worse. And we have had such a weather since late November.

We had 2-3 cm new snow on 31st noon-time, just to renew the white cover on everything for new year's day.

Still, it takes a certain amount of time and effort to memorize all that stuff - or a gift for looking at a map once and retaining it all because it makes sense. I've always been fascinated with maps and geography, and have a brain full of useless information like counties and county seats for about a third of the U.S.'s states, departements and prefectures in France, and so on; the road systems of certain places (Interstates, French and Belgian autoroutes, some of the British motorways....) but if I don't use the information for a while because I lose interest in the place, I'll lose it; and memorizing, say, the Autobahns would be a lot of effort that I don't have time for.

Which is a long-winded way of saying that I find Chris' encyclopedic knowledge of this stuff rather impressive, and if people make fun of it it may be because we're a bit jealous.

famous Gorzyczki... southern terminus of Polish A1.

If it wasn't an official border crossing of a major road I probably would have never heard of it though. I only remember it because it's relevant to Polish road construction, even though it should probably not be very relevant in this day and age, but that's another discussion .

Romanian internet connection is among the best in the world. According to some rankings we are second, after South Korea (or NK? ). I have optics at home, but I think that my wireless router limits my connection speed. Anyway, the connection is very fast and I don't have problems downloading & uploading stuff. For example I upload my driving videos to youtube in maybe 10 minutes, and they are up to 1.5 - 2 GB in size.
