Now I don't feel so bad about my inability to recognize long instrumentals.

12:15 Trouble No More.

12:20 Something along the lines of You people look good tonight. Good to be back from Gregg, though there's a long distance conversation from one end of the house to the other re. current difficulties, so I didn't get the exact quote.

12:21 Woman Across The River. Given the aforementioned lack of focus and the fact that this isn’t anywhere my top twenty ABB tracks, decide to check how things are on the desktop machine.

Find things are hunky dory over there. Decide to quit out of laptop and get updates while watching in the office. Should really have done that earlier, but hindsight's 20/20 isn't it?

12:29 One Way Out

12:36 What looks suspiciously like half time as everything on the desktop machine freezes. Out and back in to find interviews with various band members on screen while the theatre P.A. plays. Can’t hear what they’re saying, so scratch the head trying to figure out what’s going on...

Tackle various technical issues through half time. 

According to the script this was supposed to be time for nibbles and a glass of wine, but I'm back and forth between office and living room, checking things out. 

Update Flash Player on the laptop. Try Moogis after a restart. No change, so we need to upgrade Firefox. Really should've done this earlier, but there are domestic issues involved. Discretion is the better part of valour and all that.

Download the latest Firefox, go to drag it into the Applications folder. You don't have permission to do that. Oh well, as Fleetwood Mac opined back in the Peter Green era. Don’t ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to, and all that...

Consign whole operation to the too hard basket (on a temporary basis y'unnerstand), retreat to office, turn on air-conditioning. Well it is supposed to be hitting 30 and the humidity in a North Queensland wet season tends to go through the stratosphere as far as percentages are concerned. I'm usually dripping with sweat when I get home after the morning walk just after seven, for heaven's sake...

1:02 Crowd noise and a darkened stage. ABB logo. Movement here and there. 

Jaimoe on stage to dedicate the rest of the run to Red Dog and the rest of the guys who have passed

1:05 Ready to resume.

1:06 Blind Willie McTell? Sure is.

Gregg wearing glasses. Don't recall seeing that before. Welcome to the club, old son.

1:07 Freeze. Out and back in.
