Hmmm... Looks like iiNet's been having more trouble with authentication. Apologies to the other people whose sites are hosted here - there's nothing I can do about it at present. There's no ETA for a "stable" authentication setup, so I guess we just have to live with it for now. I take some solace from the knowledge that they're probably busily crucifying their vendors right about now

Anyway, I had headed up to Ararat last night to stay with Syndia, and since it was her last day there today, we packed up and headed out for some sightseeing before returning to Melbourne. Our destination ended up being the Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre. It's a fascinating place, exhibiting all sorts of stuff about the foundation of the town of Ararat by Chinese miners travelling from South Australia to the Victorian gold fields. Photos etc are here.
