FYI: I was getting same thing with IE for about a week, but now resolved. What did I do to fix? I'm computer inclined but don't know/can't tell...

Fantastic report/tutorial. Required reading for those interested in going. Hmmm...9 days x $400 for a private charter = a good chunk of change. A serious trip to be sure but obviously can be an amazing experience.

That's another thing I like about Singapore Airport - luggage carts are free!

And yes, why do so many bags have great outsides and cheap zippers?!

There is a slight difference to seeing the Komodos in a zoo...

There's no fence between you and them and you can see them relatively close up and see how big those claws really are. You also get to see like 8-10 really large ones all in a small area. They cruise around so you probably see more activity than you would typically see at the zoo. We saw some in the forest and they subtly displayed some of their hunting skills which aren't obvious to the inexperienced.

Despite looking much like California with some tropical plants mixed in, you can see a lot of other interesting critters you won't see elsewhere.

It may not be exciting for everyone but not quite as bleak as painted.

You ought to get the nitrox money back, but I'm thinking the boat money is gone.
