While I want to bore you senseless with tragic tales from the fire fronts, I reckon you have probably had enough. Can't promise for the future, but here is a go at distraction.
The grey pole is the mobile phone tower. Given that there is an Optus one nearby, I would guess Telstra. Could be Vodaphone I suppose, but I don't think so.
It also strikes me that it could be just a phone tower, aren't they such a gorgeous thing?, with an electric substation below?
But after studying the architectural merit of the building, I reckon it was built in the early days of mobile phones.
Now we want our backbone equipment that our mobiles depend on to function well. It clearly needs to stay cool. But I would have thought four air con units for an area of perhaps two metres by four metres was a bit of overkill. While I have tried to distinguish the sound of each one from the other, it is impossible. I reckon one works really hard and the others just bludge. Perhaps the bludgers had to step up to the crease last Saturday when it was 46 degrees.
Of course it is good to have backups, but if the power fails, well, they all stop.
I should start a new file, ugly buildings in back lanes with no phone number to call for graffiti removal.
