I went and saw I, robot last night, with Franko, Michael and Lynne.
It was nice to see Lynne again. She's looking well. I suspect she's quit
smoking since her run in with cancer. The movie was really good. I don't
think I've read the book. I found the storyline quite good, and the camera
work was pretty good. I like Will Smith, and think he did a good job.
Went up to Mount Stromlo this morning to have brunch with Sarah's friend
Christine, who is doing her research project up there. She gave us a tour
after brunch. It's such a tragic loss. Some of Canberra's original
buildings were up there, and they've been gutted by the fire. Some of the
telescope domes were made of aluminium, and the heat was so much that the
aluminium just melted, and the wind blew the molten aluminium everywhere, so
there's a couple of ruins with blotches of molten aluminium all over the
place. 18 months later, there still isn't a lot of progress on the
demolition or reconstruction. They did rebuild the satelite ranging laser,
that I used to enjoy going up at night to watch, but now it's an infra-red
laser, so there's nothing to see :-(
