in any case, in November I wrote:
"a dear buddy of mine has taken a job in Papua New Guinea doing some sustainable-eco-something or other. he went for a dive today and took this pic."
it turns out he's trying to organise some crazy alt.energy thing in PNG. Today he sent through this (beautiful) pic where they are apparently trying to extract diesel from coconuts (you can see the coconut shells in the background)
let's hope the project can 'scale' somehow.
