  • taming a pet parrot- HELP!?

    We recently bought a grass-parrot (aim on getting a few and breeding them), and we want to train it or at least tame it so it doesn't go psycho whenever we are near it.

    Click training looks good but I can't see any way that we could get near enough to it to give it a treat!

    How can I get it to be more comfortable around people? We sit with it and whistle to it and have been doing so for the last few weeks since we got it :-(

  • Blueberry plant in hanging basket (Sydney, Aus)?

    I have a 'Nelly Kelly' Blueberry plant which is about 1/2 a foot tall and has three sprawling branches (ie they go out instead of up).

    I was going to plant it in a pot but heard that it is possible to plant them in hanging baskets. I assume the branches then grow downwards, and fruit production isn't affected.

    I'm in Sydney, Australia, so it's cold in summer but warm in winter. We get some frost, and the climate is closest to 'mediterranean' (but it's also classed as temperate).

    I have peat/coir, good potting mix, and acidifying (azalea) fertiliser.

    Has anybody had success growing blueberries in hanging baskets or should I just put it in a pot?

    Cheers :-)

  • How can I view chinese/japanese/foreign characters in Firefox?

    It seems they don't have a Japanese or even Canto/Mandarin language pack or dictionary. Whenever I'm on a site that has foreign letters (like http://www.davidhallgren.se/nihon/kanaPractice.asp... the character just comes up as a 4 letters or numbers in a little box.

    Any suggestions of what I can download or install or change to make these characters visible again? I have no problem viewing Baltic/Cyrillic text...just characters.
