    Happy new year, just letting all the Macrumites that the calander switching over too '06 has not caused my iBook or iMac to crash nor microwave, fridge, watch nor toothbrush.

    Lots of fireworks here though, couple more hours and you Sydneysiders will join us in 2006 glory well the rest of ya will have to wait a bit longer.


    Na na na my country is more advanced in time than yours.

    I was playing a game when the date rolled over, and interestingly, it froze up for a fraction of a second. I immediately realised what had happened - I looked at my watch and it was indeed 2006 :cool:

    The fireworks were also a hint :p

    Now now, no fighting in the colonies please! ;)

    Happy New Year - it's still Hogmanay here in Sunny N. Scotland.

    I could be cheeky and celebrate with Canada as well, not sure I could face another wee-dram at 8am GMT though.

    Here's hoping that the new year brings a better year than last year for everyone!

    For those that lost loved ones during the past year, may this year bring healing to the grief, and memories of the good times.

    For those that lost their love during the past year, may this year bring new anticipation for finding the love of your life.

    For those that lost their jobs during the past year, may this year bring new adventures and a better outlook on the future.

    For those who suffered through tragedies this past year, may this year bring you a renewed hope.

    May we all make good choices in the coming new year.

    Still almost 12 hours until the New Year here! No big plans for me though, as I leave for Vegas tomorrow for gambling, partying, attending the CES, and all sorts of other fun stuff! :cool:

    Looking out our balcony windows it looks like the fireworks have more or less stopped now, so it seems a good opportunity to say Happy New Year to you all! Christ, I'm going to be 30 this year...
