According to Bloomberg.com:

The Australian dollar was at 87.99 U.S. cents at 7:25 a.m. in Sydney after reaching 87.89 cents, the highest since February 1989. It was headed for a fifth weekly rise after buying 87.12 cents late in New York July 13.

This makes it harder for Ricochet1980 to buy comics on ebay, I am told.

I thought this was good news for us, but apparently not in pounds sterling.
