Thank you for the kind words Eric.

For those who are interested in attending the funeral, the details are below:

Date: Thursday 23 September 2010
Time: 1 PM
Place: Sacred Heart Chapel (marked as Rookwood Catholic Cementaries and Cremtoria on google maps)
Rookwood Cemetery

Rookwood is near Lidcombe. The closest main road is Homebush Bay Road/Centenary Drive. The entrance is at the junction of Centenary Drive and Weeroona Road, and it is between M4 and M5. There should be signs of direction after entry. The best way is to go to do a Google search on Rookwood Cemetery and check it out, The cemetery is very big.



In response to the loss of Yi's dear friend, Robin, I would like to offer my condolences to his friends and family. It is indeed an unfortunate loss and I am unsure as how to express how sorry I feel for those closest to him. Particularly, Yi and his many other close associates.

Despite only meeting him briefly, I remember Rob as an easy going guy and remember and continue to remember him as a great guy. I feel I was most fortunate in being able to have acquainted with him and the memories of playing soccer with him.

Yi, although I am not close with him and have not dealt with him on a personal basis, I would still like the opportunity to pay my respects to what I describe, as an all-round profession and friendly person such as Robin.

Again, I offer my sincerest condolences to the family and friends.

Hi all,

I'm not sure if you remember Robin from our soccer sessions but I have some bad news to share.

Robin has been working in the UK for the past few years as a trainee solicitor. Over a recent long weekend, he went mountaineering in Slovakia with a friend from the outdoors club in the High Tatras. The pair were delayed in returning and were caught in a blizzard close to nightfall. Emergency services had sent a team of professional rescuers, but the weather conditions were too poor to reach them. They were found in critical condition the next morning but died during the attempted evacuation.

Their bodies have now been retrieved and Robin's death certificate has been issued. His body is being sent back to Australia, and it is expected the funeral will take place in the near future.

I don't think there is ever a good way to break news like this - Robin touched many lives, certainly mine, and I hope that we can all take some time to reflect upon our memories of him in this sad time.

I will update you with the funeral arrangements as they come to light and I'm sure his parents will be honoured if you can attend.

No gimmicks or theatrics, Germany is just in a whole different league.

Their passes were precise unlike Australia. And the defence marking was like watching flies on shit vs mosquito.

The Schwartz did a fantastic job. His performance wasn't wanting and you couldn't have asked for more.

Should have stopped watching after Cahill got red-carded and it descended into a snuff match.

haha, that graph is awesome. Microsoft peaked at the end of Gates' reign as CEO. As soon as Balmer took over, Microsoft's share values started tanking.

That is surprisingly effective. They may as well fashion the cigarette pack to look like a sunken colony. Koreans will take up smoking in unprecedented levels.

The human organism cannot survive as a bundle of neural reflexes, or even of stimulus-response learning pathways. In order to perform within the infinitely complex ecosystem to which it became adapted, it needed to establish autonomy from the genetically determined instructions that had shaped its behaviour through the long eons of its evolution.

The system that has evolved to provide this autonomy is the self. The function of the self is to mediate between the genetic instructions that manifest themselves as ‘instinctual drives’ and the cultural instructions that appear as norms and rules. The self must prioritise between these various behavioral instructions and select among them the ones it wants to endorse.

Someone left my place with my grey havianas.

They would have been noticeably smaller and noticeably more comfortable. Kindly please return them immediately, I have no flip flops to wear...

Thanks again to Marc for offering his spacious, convenient apartment for risky poker games.

My arms hurt and I can't raise them above my shoulders.

This is despicable. They didn't show any images of watermelon seeds and mandarin peels.

"Curious learning not only makes unpleasant things less pleasant, but also makes pleasant things more pleasant. I have enjoyed peaches and apricots more since I have known that they were first cultivated in China in the early days of the Han dynasty; that Chinese hostages held by the great King Kaniska introduced them into India, whence they spread to Persia, reaching the Roman Empire in the first century of our era; that the word "apricot" is derived from the same Latin source as the word "precocious" because the apricot ripens early; and that the A as the beginning was added by mistake , owing to a false etymology. All this makes the fruit taste much sweeter"
