Had a great time cycling the Port Hills this weekend. Once I get the photos developed, they'll be up. Great sunny day, with just enough wind to keep me cool. And I saw my first sheep!

I've got my first roll of film developed and posted in the pictures section... should have it all organized and labelled within the next few days. They are pictures from my bike trip through downtown Christchurch and to New Brighton beach. Very nice; it's just more and much older than Victoria is. Some of the buildings are very impressive and kept in excellent condition. When Emillie arrives, we'll probably do some tours into areas like the Cathedral, so I'll hopefully have some pictures of that then.
Everything at Tait is going well. I'm right back into my thesis work (thankfully) and should have a first paper ready before the New Year. Then starting the next paper. Here's hoping that everything stays on track!
By the way, the company I'm working for is Tait Electronics.
Oh, and climbing at the YMCA is nice. It's the biggest climbing gym in Christchurch, but the walls are all of a nice height (~20-25m?). They are also very slack about lead climbing in their gym... my first time there, they let another guy teach me how to lead! It was great, since it was first time leading. Would like to take some lessons though... old habits die hard!

Well, here I am... in Christchuch, New Zealand. A good end to the first week. Everyone was super helpful (the big boss even picked me up at the airport!) is helping me setup. My unit is not the one I expected, but very nice nonetheless (see the Hollyhock cottage at http://www.hambledon.co.nz/cottages.htm). Went out yesterday to explore the downtown of the city and took a few pictures. I'll post them once I have them developed (no fancy digital camera for me... yet). I plan to go out today to the beach and finish the roll of film, so sometime next week I should have the new pictures up.
Got big plans for my site now. This isn't gonna be like before, when I just had the page just to have presence on the 'net... this one will actual add to the international clutter! Plan is to have a huge biking website, primarily focusing on the tours that Emillie and I have and will do. All in planning, but something good will happen this time! It will be a work in progress, with the trip and bike related info. posted as it comes in. Should be good though...
New Zealand test...
