It's raining outside as I type this. Why is this worth mentioning? I love when it rains, there's something that's just so soothing about it. However I was caught in it today as walked back from the city across the Victoria bridge. Although I had an umbrella, a bus ran through a puddle next to the footpath and sprayed my lower half horizontally. Needless to say I wasn't too impressed.
Yesterday i read an article in the newspaper that really intrigued me. It was a feature article on Britain making its final World War II loan repayment to the United States. I love my history (hey, it was one of the majors for my Arts degree), and I found this fascinating.
60 years after the conflict ended Britain has just paid back in full the amount that the US had loaned to it during the conflict to help it fight the Germans (around $AUD163 billion in today's terms).
In geeky news, it seems as though Apple and Sony have reached an agreement over Sony BMG artists selling songs on iTunes. A significant amount of Sony's catalogue has very quietly been added to Apple's online music store. This follows many months after Apple launched the Australian store without any Sony artists present.
