Thesis update

Tarakan is now finished, so started started writing up Brunei Bay. Over 7,000 words on this chapter so far. I'm waiting for last week's photocopying from the War Memorial but have enough to write up the first few pages. Usual story really; we came, we saw, we built roads, airstrips, port facilities and a bulk oil storage terminal.

While pasting pictures into it I caused OpenOffice to barf. Then it lost all the pictures. Had to bring the document back into Word. It also barfed so I had to merge the two versions by hand. Back using Word, which is a pity. Have turned the stupid grammar checker OFF.
