Rant about QPS

I had to complete a statutory declaration for the Queensland Police (speeding ticket) and they required it to be witnessed by "a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner for Declarations, notary public, a lawyer or another person authorised to administer an oath under the law of the State, the Commonwealth or another state." [emphasis mine] I had mine witnessed by a Justice of the Peace from NSW.

After sending it in they rejected it with the following explanation: "It is not permissible for Justice of the Peace; Commissioner for Declarations; notary pulic under the law of the State, the Commonwealth or another State; or a lawyer; or a conveyancer; or another person authorised to administer an oath from another state to witness a statutory declaration in Queensland."

Huh!?!? This just don't make no sense at all.

Windows Live OneCare Beta

Microsoft are encouraging people to get on board with the Windows Live OneCare Beta. Looks to be good to me (been running for a few days now) & it meant that I didn't have to plug in that activation key that I bought yet! More info here: http://get.live.com/betas/onecare_betas

Nokia N95 and a 4GByte Micro SD Card

There's been some speculation as to whether or not a 4Gbyte (or larger) Micro SD card will work with in a Nokia N95. The confusion is because Nokia state in their specs that it only supports up to 2GB.

I'm not the first person to test this nor the first one to confirm it, but I thought I would re-confirm it.

See pictures here which show the card, the camera (with a 1GByte card), the camera (with a new 4Gbyte card), and then the camera (with more than 2Gbytes on the card).

Suffice to say - it works.

And if it works with a 4Gbyte SDHC card then this means that the N95 supports SDHC, so even larger cards will work (when they are released).
