The Internet can still amaze me. With thanks to Nigel I found the site for the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. The interesting part of this (apart from finding out that that Shirley Bassey is playing there 3 days after my birthday next year) is they have a web cam that you can control.
I spent my allocated minute and a half panning and zooming around only to discover that night time in Glasgow looks an awful lot like night time in Melbourne. Though I would like to know where the taxi that I saw was going.
