Computers, bikes and things I’d like to remember.

Goodbye Rachel

March 21st, 2011 Posted in General

Some years ago Rachel Funari was the partner of my friend Allan Bontjer. She went for a short holiday in Tasmania in early March and has not been seen since. Despite a massive effort from Police, SES, bushwalking clubs, divers and a search dog, no trace of Rachel has been found. The news has been full of reports of her disappearance.

Allan and Rachel first met via a Pink Floyd on-line community. Both were huge Floyd fans. They hooked up in the USA and Allan brought Rachel back to Canberra. A love of Pink Floyd was always a part of their relationship that I could identify with.

Thanks to Spoonboy I recently acquired an Internet Radio (the beers are coming soon Spoonie, I promise). This little box camps on my wireless network and exposes me to thousands of Internet radio stations. I recently discovered that the BBC has a ‘Goon Show’ channel with around the clock uninterrupted episodes of the Goon Show.

Last weekend I found a station out of Russia that streams Pink Floyd 24/7 with nothing at all but their music.

So tonight the kids and I listened to a bunch of Floyd while remembering Rachel. Goodbye Rachel.
