An interesting picture for you to ponder for just a moment,
and here a thought for you to consider.
We all know a famous Vulcan once said Live long and Prosper
but be surprised to find this gesture has an Earthly origin.
Do a search on the Internet for Kohen

On the World Wide Web or "in game" you can recognise me by the name
or by this icon
Strangely you may find me sometimes on an alien world in a first person shooter game,
usually in any of the Quake, Unreal or Half Life worlds.
I am currently enjoying Unreal 3 on my new computer built January 2008 *
In December 2009 a minor upgrade for the new Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Operating System in which
I added another 4 GB of RAM and an Solid State (hard) Drive.
I must say the SAMSUNG 245B LCD monitor coupled to the ASUS NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS 512M was a beautiful sight to behold and since an apparent monitor failure and subsequent repair (I now have 2 x 23" Samsung Monitors spare but so satisified I self repaired the 245B) and then an apparent video card failure, replaced ASUS NVIDIA with GAINWARD 460 SE, I really look forward to my next PC build

Why not escape the real world?
Would you like to find it is easy to travel to other worlds?
Just imagine for a moment in time, picture yourself here on a distant planet and yet view another pyramid.
To assist in your travel plans here is a link to The Astronomy Picture of the Day
Also there is the NASA Picture of the Day available on this page that leads to a feast of other great space stuff.
Now just a little Windows and site navigation hint to aid your experience.
When clicking on links (normally underlined text where your normal mouse pointer changes to a hand symbol).
You can right mouse click then open a new window/tab or use your browser back arrow to return here.
This is a cool one to remember. If you have a scroll mouse simply click the scroll wheel (button 3) and open link in a new tab.
Are you into stamps? Are you philatelically primed?
Are you really philatelically inclined?
Try this link Stamp Album Design
I am confident that you will be impressed.
Who can forget the famous
For historical interest , Babylon 5 was built in the Euphrates sector, a small region of neutral space, in orbit around the planet Epsilon 3.
Babylon 5 went online in 2256, and in 2257 became fully operational. It was incredibly some five miles long and weighing 2.5 million tonnes.
The Station continued operations for 20 years longer than planned and was decommissioned and finally destroyed in 2281.
A sad day indeed.
Now who can forget the famous and classic quote from G'Kar, just below for you to ponder as we travel?
“Take my advice and go back to the time you came from. The future isn't what it used to be”
Something else of interest as you pass by this world
Just click the links for a history lesson
Boggo Road Gaol Wiki
Boggo Road Gaol Historical Society
You may have guessed I am into science fiction, but I do enjoy the classic movies too.
Lawrence of Arabia
The pictures below have sound files embedded.
Just press on them to enjoy, but if you need to get out please press the escape button
“We are Borg"
2001 - A Space Odyssey
HAL in responding to Dave outside the ship
“Do you want to play a game?"
" Sound Effects”
" We want two large glasses of lemonade"
Lawrence of Arabia
Peter O'Toole as Lawrence of Arabia
There is a quote from a movie that when I hear it I feel rather strange. I not know why but here are those words.
“Cirrus, Socrates, Particle, Decibel, Hurricane, Dolphin, Tulip"
Do you know where this passage is from?
The phase is from the movie AI - Artificial Intelligence and they are the code words spoken by the mother to make
David fall permanently in love (programmed bonding) about 22 minutes into the movie.
Sadly I cannot locate the correct sound file for your enjoyment.
Trust me, if you do get a chance watch the movie and appreciate that maternal moment.
I recorded and inserted my own voice here but it does not do the poetry justice.
Some other sound files for your entertainment while passing.
Who can forget Robert Duvall in the movie Apocalypse Now saying
“I love the smell of napalm in the morning "
Or Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, the drill instructor from Full Metal Jacket barking
“What's your name, Scumbag ?"
From Forrest Gump of course Run, Forrest, run! Run, Forrest !"
and finally Quaid saying in Total Recall "Get your ass to Mars !"
Just a moon shot for you to gaze upon and a picture of the Saturn Five rocket that got man there.
Did they actually go to the moon, or was it all a hoax as some would have you believe?
You do remember the Apollo space program?
Hyperlinks to Wikipedia information provided, so just click the pictures.
Do you find people born after the moon landing are a little different to those born before?
Here are two items of interest.
The first plaque has left our Solar System on each of the 2 Pioneer Space probes launched in the 1970’s,
the second is on the surface of the Moon, actually attached to the LEM leg.
Do you think or believe there is anything in pyramids?
Do they hide any secret codes? Do they contain any message?
Now you might think I had something for pyramids or black and white photographs,
but no, just some pictures to put up on the site for a little while.
I found this animated Beatles gif while searching the internet one day and thought it was worth inclusion here.
Simply remember First Aid by DRABC and save a life perhaps that of a loved one
DANGER ~ Assess the situation and ensure safety of yourself the casualty and others
RESPONSE ~ Check the casualty for a response: SHAKE AND SHOUT
AIRWAY ~ Turn* the casualty on side and clear airway

BREATHING ~ Open mouth tilt head back extend jaw listen for breathing
If not the person is not breathing: commence mouth-to-mouth resuscitation at a rate of 5 breaths in 10 seconds
CIRCULATION ~ Check for pulse at neck or wrist
If no pulse: commence cardiac massage at a rate of 15 compressions each 10 seconds
Continue with 2 breaths to 30 compressions. Rate of compressions is 100 per minute or almost 2 per second
ONCE RECOVERED PLACE ON LEFT SIDE AND CALL AMBULANCE AND NEVER GIVE UP
My Motor cars over the years
Mercedes Benz A160 had served me well.
Near 8 years old and with 66,000 kilometres on the odometer, it was again time to update.
Still wanting the safest vehicle in the class, the Mercedes A class model was again selected.
With the desire for more power while maintaining that luxury feel an A200 Elegance
was discovered in the yard of Brisbane Mercedes Benz. Brisbane Mercedes-Benz Brisbane
Click the Mercedes Benz icon below for their website
Here are some pictures of the new car. It is still a fine vehicle by all my measures.
2007 A200 Elegance
Now to a couple of my previous motor vehicles
The Ford Festiva was purchased new in 1994.
Then near 10 years old (2004) with 113,000 kilometres on the odometer, it was time to update/upgrade and
wanting the safest vehicle in the class, the Mercedes A class model was chosen. This a fine vehicle by all my measures.

A History of Motor Vehicle Ownership
The below pictures represent the make, model and year the vehicle
was purchased and
are not personal pictures so the colours may not be correct.
I have owned an Holden HD station wagon and an AP Valiant station wagon, yet to find suitable images.
So what does this tell you about the owner?
Fastidious, finicky or fussy come to mind, but then perhaps perfectionist, picky or purist?

It will be time to depart and leave here soon, but before you venture away to a far away land, there is a little more to consider.
Please take a moment in time, appreciate what a small world it is that we exist on in the blackness of the universe.
Please be considerate to the environment. I am not a greenie by any yardstick, but our future depends on your present.
Just some quick radio snippets
QZA 854 is my original Citizens Band Radio Call sign in Australia
VK4VGJ is still my current Licensed Amateur Radio Call Sign
(While not actively involved at the moment I may return)
Links to Morse Code and Phonetic Alphabet
And a rather interesting Morse Code translator to play with is located here.
Give it a go.

I checked the links, deleted the dead and added some you may find some interesting.

Another thought to consider as you leave this site.
The accurate recording of history is important as some say; there is no future without a past?
If you don't commit to paper the memory may fail and then where would we be?

It took a couple of months but have found a new home here
Thank you ventraip.com.au for the hosting and service

Briefly, the we site http://www.whiskey7.org is a not for profit organisation dedicated to the preservation of web pages such as you see here. One day they simply won't be around to enjoy. Finally for some, a brief news item, and perhaps of some interest, but then again it is a simple short note that one day this small step may lead you to somewhere quite unique in the world. Again, I will be endeavoring to add to the site. I am forever testing and so do enjoy this extraordinary internet technology, hopefully for years to come. Cheers. Live long and prosper.
Thanks for a wonderful life on Earth.
