Close to done and will finish it tonight. Got too many sources I want to use too, partly because I'm doing a topic I know well, the Irgun (for question 3).

What are you doing?

But I carry my camera at all times and end up using it a lot ...
sometimes i have to remind myself to put down my camera and enjoy looking at stuff with my eyes.

I'm doing question two, focusing only on Jemaah Islamiyah (the only way I'll even come close to keeping it down to 1000 words).

It helps that I was living in South-East Asia from 1991 to 2001, and so am reasonably familiar with what went on around then and there, especially 1997 onwards.

The main reason I avoid taking photos of trains/trams running away from me is that in Melbourne, all trams and almost all trains have cabs at both ends, so it looks like it's coming towards you when it's not.

I love it how Sean Connery manages to seem about 40 years older than Harrison Ford in Last Crusade despite only being a few years older (I think).

Same here... especially at the first U2 show. Second night I deliberately left the digital at home, but couldn't resist sticking a disposable camera in my pocket...

Ahh, right. I've written two essays on the Irgun before, so I knew exactly what sources I wanted and what to say. Easy essay. I'm aiming to hand it in before tomorrow's tute.

I'm too paranoid to take a camera to a concert. I don't want it confiscated or anything.

Connery's 12 years older... but now I think he probably looks better than present-day Mr Ford.

Same, otherwise I'd've some awesome photos from Melb 2. All I ended up getting were some crappy mobile-phone camera shots.
