Hi Nigel,
The lego cake link was great. My nephew is totally nuts about lego, and he loves baking with me, so this can be our project for the next time I visit him (not till the end of the year though).

Kegerator - I didn't even know that there was a name for the converted fridge. My friends have one at their lab. They are engineers, so no surprises there. Are engineers synonymous with beer drinking (*binge*) in NZ too?. I like visiting them at the lab :-)

Engineering students most definitely are! Wiki "Undie 500" and you'll see why...
