General news



For the weekend:

  • The best thing to do this weekend is turn off your computer - after you've read everything on ARN, stop being a Net head, and get out and do something! The weather looks good, except in Perth - but it needs the rain anyway, so there's no excuse for lounging around doing absolutely nothing ... unless you have the flu, in which case get all your friends and relatives to come over and look after you. Pampering, mmm. Sorry, distracted there. That's it then. Have a tweet-free day, don't face up to Facebook, give MySpace a miss. There - we feel better already just thinking about how much fun you're going to have.

Tomorrow's weather:

  • Sydney: Fine. Sunny. Min: 9, Max: 21
  • Melbourne: Windy. Min: 11, Max: 20
  • Brisbane: Fine. Min: 9, Max: 24
  • Perth: Showers, windy. Min: 11, Max: 16
  • Adelaide: Dry. Windy. Min: 13, Max: 25
  • Hobart: Shower or two. Min: 6, Max: 17
